Overview

“Inexperienced cooks need more that just a few lines of laconic test to help them along.  Rachael Ray has coached a generation of rookies on her Food Network shows, talking and plopping and emoting her way through dish after dish.  Her latest books, Rachael Ray’s Look + Cook, shows what each stage should look like in big photos.  Betty Crocker, or more specifically, the 1976 edition of Betty Crocker’s Cookbook, used to be my bulletproof go-to recipe source. But now Ray fills that role.”  — Time magazine

Read an Excerpt

cherry tomato red clam sauce with linguine

serves 6

Salt
1 pound linguine
3 tablespoons EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)
5 to 6 anchovies
1 red onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pint small cherry tomatoes
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 sprigs of oregano, leaves stripped and finely chopped
A handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
Black pepper
1 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
3 pounds Manila clams, scrubbed
½ cup fresh basil leaves, torn

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt the water, and cook the pasta to just shy of al dente.

While the water comes to a boil, heat the EVOO in a large pot over medium to medium-high heat. Add the anchovies and melt them into the oil. Add the onions, garlic, and tomatoes to the pot and season with the red pepper flakes, oregano, parsley, and black pepper to taste. Sauté until the tomatoes burst and the onions are soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the wine and reduce for 1 to 2 minutes, then melt the butter into the sauce and add the clams. Cover the pot and cook the clams until they open, 6 to 7 minutes.
Discard any unopened clams and add the pasta to the pot. Toss the linguine with the sauce for 2 to 3 minutes so the pasta absorbs the flavors. Add the basil, taste to adjust the seasonings, and serve.

This book is filled with great recipes that anyone, and I do mean anyone can make. I love the sections on make your own takeout and the fancy fake outs make the book worth it. It gave me time to curl up with another book I found on this site, it's called When God Stopped Keeping Score. My words won't do it justice. Look up and see for yourself. You will be glad you did.

AWESOMELY DELISH!!! Book is just as the title says you can look & cook. She give you step-by-step instructions & pictures of each step so you can see what it's supposed to look like. Great for beginners but long time cooks will love this book as well. She has some great receipes in this book and I've made about 1/2 of the recipes in this book. So far no complaints about any of them. My family & friends love the food and always ask for more. I love Rachael Ray...she's the one that got me back into the kitchen and my family loves her for that as well. You can't go wrong with this book.
