Rachael Ray 24/7
"I eat at all hours of the day and night," says Rachael Ray, a rising superstar in the cooking world and vivacious host of two popular Food Network shows. To satisfy those 24/7 cravings, she's come up with Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Meals: Cooking 'Round the Clock, a collection of recipes for any or every hour of the day or night. Need a nosh while you're burning the midnight oil? No problem. Make a Tartine, an open-faced sandwich topped with a variety of throw-together goodies and quickly heated in a toaster oven. Getting back to more traditional timing, you can start the day with any of Rachael's roster of "Rise ∧ Shiners" from sensational scrambles to Vanilla-Almond French Toast. Ten menus, plus lots of extras including "sammys," soups and salads, provide light-up-the-day lunches. When it comes to supper, you can choose from family-friendly, kid-pleasing "Early-Bird Specials," super sit-down dinners, a melange of mega-munchie TV treats or "Bistro Meals" created to inspire dim-the-lights, stay-at-home dates. It's Rachael, so you're home free and well fed in 30 minutes!
