Rachael Ray’s First Cookbook: 30-Minute Meals
Given the fact that I collect cookbooks and all things Rachael Ray, you’d better believe I have a Rachael Ray cookbook collection I wouldn’t take anything for! The cookbook pictured here, Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals is her first. You could say it’s the book that launched a mega Food Network star.
Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals has Rachael Ray’s trademark personality and originality and is filled with quick and easy recipes you’ll make over and over again.
If (like me) you are a cookbook collector, this is one I know you’ll want to add to your collection. What cookbook collection would be complete without every Rachael Ray cookbook, after all?? Even if you aren’t a collector, you’ll enjoy the simplistic recipes in this one.
- Greek Dinner Salad
- Enchinada Enchilada Red Sauce
- Blue Moon Burgers
- Zesty Chicken Cutlets Parmigiana
- Quick Marinara Sauce
- Big Belly Beef Stew
- Greek Wraps with White Bean Hummus
- Linguine with Red Clam Sauce
- Linguine with White Clam Sauce
- Spinach with Nutmeg and Garlic
- Pizza Recipes
- Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
- Tomato and Onion Salad
- Spicy Beef Balls
- Mini Meatball Soup
- White Lightning Chili
- Quick Jambalaya
- And a lot more…
Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals doesn’t have any pictures of the recipes, but the recipes make up for it. The best thing about this book, in my opinion, is the fact that it’s a solid addition to any cookbook collection.
Buying Used Cookbooks on Amazon
Normally, when I buy cookbooks, I’ll buy them new – whether it’s on Amazon or elsewhere. However, if I’m ordering an older cookbook, I’ll buy them off of Amazon used. I’ve done this dozens of times and have not had a single bad experience. A lot of the used book dealers do this for a living and they greatly depend on positive feedback. So, if they say the book is “like new,” they mean it. You can find used cookbooks on Amazon for PENNIES.
With the money saved, you can buy kitchen gadgets, dishes, and new cookbooks. Make no mistake about it, it’s a wonderful system – and one I highly recommend!
