Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Just when you thought Rachael Ray couldn't make preparing dinner any easier, she offers a book of 100 simple main courses, all illustrated with step-by-step photos. Cooks who aren't quite sure what dishes are supposed to look like along the way will gain confidence from the six images that accompany each entry, highlighting ingredients, techniques, and in-progress recipes. As You Like It citrus soy stir-fry calls for shelled edamame and a seeded and thinly sliced bell pepper; photos show just how these should appear when they're ready to go into the skillet. One photo supporting the individual Florentine frying-pan pizza depicts dough pressed into a skillet and being filled before baking--so there's no question about whether the reader is doing it correctly. All recipes include a photo of the finished product, too. Chapters are quintessential Ray: "Cozy Food" (cherry tomato and ravioli soup with store-bought ravioli; shepherd's pie stuffed potatoes), "Make Your Own Takeout" (Real-Deal rellenos), "Fancy Fake-Outs" (Moroccan Lemon-Olive Chicken), "‘Yes, The Kids Will Eat It'" (chicken & broccolini with orange sauce), and, of course, "30-Minute Meals." Ray fans should find more of what they love in this book: easy meals that will please most crowds. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Celebrity chef and best-selling author Ray (Rachael Ray's Big Orange Book) here features 200 new recipes in chapters like "Cozy Food," "Make Your Own Takeout," "Fancy Fake-Outs," and "30-Minute Meals." Recipes are written for novices and include step-by-step photos. Fans are sure to find plenty of creative comfort food, such as Margarita Fish Tacos (which calls for tequila, mahimahi or halibut, and avocado) and Autumn Harvest Chili (served inside a butternut squash).

Read an Excerpt

cherry tomato red clam sauce with linguine

serves 6

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.
