    Quintessential Rachael

    If you watch Ray's show or have other cookbooks by the author, and you looked through Rachael Ray's Big Orange Book without glancing at the cover, you would immediately know it was hers. To begin with, it's loaded with her unique language--EVOO (extra virgin olive oil,) "sammies" (sandwiches,) and more.<BR/><BR/>The largest section of the book is comprised of Ray's famous 30 minute meals. This section is broken down to soups & sammies, pasta, chicken, beef, ham & pork and fish.<BR/><BR/>Ever since my husband got back from a business trip in California and told me about a delicious meal of fish tacos, I've been experimenting. So, when I saw "My-oh-mahi tacos," I had to try them. They were delicious! The best part was that the recipe has you first wrap the filling with a corn tortilla, then a flour one. I think the corn tortillas taste and texture are great, but I hate how they always break, spilling taco contents everywhere. With the flour tortilla wrapped around it, everyone plays nice and stays inside.<BR/><BR/>There is a vegetarian chapter. Now, I assume if you are a vegetarian, you would not buy this book for the one chapter. However, be warned if you make Winter Greens Pasta for a vegetarian eater--the recipe calls for ANCHOVIES! Anchovies are FISH--therefore, this is not strictly a vegetarian dish.<BR/><BR/>Other chapters include kosher, family recipes, entree burgers, starters and snacks, holiday menus and dishes that take more than 30 minutes to prepare.<BR/><BR/>I also made Broken Florentine Lasagna Bake, because I love swiss char and am always looking for new ways to prepare it. This was very good and a very healthy meal.<BR/><BR/>Recommend.<BR/><BR/>By the author of the award winning book, HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET.

    Huge Rachael Ray fan! Didn't let me down with this one!

    Rachael always has the average person in mind when creating her recipes and products. She relates to everyone and makes things so easy whether it's a new recipe or a new product. I highly recommend this book and all of her other books as well.

    great cookbook

    I usually purchase and never really use my cookbooks. This one has wonderful recipes, is easy to use and I get hungry every time that I pick it up.

    Repetitious

    I found way too many "repeats" in this book from her other books . I was hoping for more "original" recipes in all categories .
    Waste of $$ if one already has a RR cookbook.

    Not what I expected...

    I was disappointed with Rachael Ray's "BOB." I did not feel that it was a very good reflection of the dishes that Rachael makes on her show. Many of the recipes are too involved for someone who just wants to throw a meal together in a short period of time.

    Rachel Rays Big Orange Book Of Fun

    Rachel Rays Big Orange Book is like Rachel herself, fun but not serious. I think that this a great book for the new cook or the cook looking for something quick and easy. Lot's of great recipes but I wish she would include a lot more pictures.
