Overview

If you’re like Rachael Ray, mealtime is a time to hang out and reconnect with family and friends. That means you could be making a late dinner for you and your sweetie one night and making brunch for your entire family the next day. No matter how many people join the party, Rachael firmly believes that cooking should be fun, easy–and done in 30 minutes or less.

Transforming recipes for four into recipes for two or eight can be a tricky guessing game. If you use twice the amount of chicken will you have to cook it twice as long? Is it possible to make a satisfying pot of soup for two without having to eat leftovers for a week? What’s the best–and most economical–way to feed a crowd of eight? With Rachael Ray: 2, 4, 6, 8 there’s no need to guess, because Rachael has designed right-sized menus for every occasion, with perfect meals for two, four, six, or eight.

For date night you don’t want tons of food, so Rachael’s Croque Madame sandwich with a Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette salad and a killer vodka cocktail strike just the right note. For family dinners, double dates, or those who love leftovers, Rachael whips up classic meals for four like Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza or Grilled Shrimp with Chorizo Skewers. For poker night with your buddies, Rachael knows exactly which ingredients stretch into a 30-minute meal for six, like Uptown Sweet and Spicy Sausage Hoagies. Throwing a dinner party is a pleasure when you’re armed with stress-free meals for eight like Italian Chicken Pot Pie and Boozy Berries and Biscuits. With complete menus for family dinners as well as easy and impressive meals for entertaining plus lots of super simple desserts that taste like a million, no matter what the occasion, the perfect meal for your crowd is never more 30 minutes away.

Editorial Reviews

The kitchen credo of Rachael Ray is a model of simplicity: This versatile television star insists that cooking should be fun, easy, and done in 30 minutes or less. But every home cook struggles with recipe specs that don't quite fit the occasion at hand: If you're cooking for just two, how do you adjust a family recipe? Do you halve the amount of soup for half as long? Rachael Ray 2, 4, 6, 8 solves the problem by providing right-sized menus for every occasion, whether you're cooking for just you and a loved one or a half dozen little leaguers. And the recipes are good. For starters, sample the Italian Pot Pie or the Grilled Shrimp with Chorizo Skewers.

Great cook book by Rachael Ray. I absolutely love how she has all of her recipes divided into sections of 2, 4, 6, and 8 according to how many people you are feeding. The recipes in this book could be good for beginners as well as more advanced people in the kitchen.

My husband and I love this cookbook! There are lots of great recipes for the nights when it's just us, and when we have company it's easy to switch gears, even when the guests are a surprise!
