America’s favorite self-taught cook opens up about the most memorable moments of her life in this candid memoir-inspired cookbook featuring 125 all-new recipes.
“No matter the recipe, each of us changes a dish by our own preparation of it. It’s the same with stories—once you put them out there, readers get to interpret them and be affected by them as they will. Ultimately, it’s my hope that this book leaves the reader with that quiet smile we all get after we eat a favorite comfort food. Basically, I’m going for the afterglow of a big bowl of spaghetti.”—from the Introduction
As her fiftieth birthday approached, the woman who taught America how to get dinner on the table, fast, started thinking not just about what to make for dinner, but how her passion for food and feeding people had developed over her first fifty years.
Filled with twenty-five thoughtful essays and 125 delicious recipes, Rachael Ray 50 reads like a memoir and a cookbook at once.

The result is a collection that offers the perfect blend of kitchen and life wisdom, including thoughts on how we can better serve the world and one another.
Also featured within these pages are gorgeous food photography, personal photos, and Rachael’s own hand-drawn illustrations throughout, offering a revealing and intimate glimpse into her world and her every day inspiration.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I honestly cannot believe I just ordered my 26th book from Rachael Ray! 26th! It is one thing to watch her show and if you are like me, you have things like her knives, but I am really excited about this book. I have worn out some of the other books before passing them along to friends and families when they ask for a particular recipe and I don't mind when they don't always bring them back right away. they honestly fall in love with other recipes as well. That's why I am really looking forward to this book. And if you are like me, and always want to make every meal better, I'd also recommend that you buy the best cookbook reference guide ever called "Conquer Your Kitchen," from Chef Jai Scovers. At first, I was honestly overwhelmed by how much I didn't know about cooking after cooking for years, but given how well my pasta dishes started to turn out after I bought it has made the purchase worth every penny! Buy it, buy it, buy it and then, work your magic with Rachael's book!
