I loved that show! 


 

@homedecor1 - Today's episode, "Roasted Chicken Parm Meatball Patties..." looks like it will be re-airing on Saturday; based on the times shared here, it will likely be at 12:30 p.m. your time.

Re: RR's 30 Minute Meals returns to Food Network

Great news! Wow, I had such good times watching her original Thirty Minute Meals. I feel like most of my cooking skills can be attributed to what I learned from Rachael - the big cutting board, chop and drop, palm fulls without worrying about measuring, etc. She taught me to be creative with whatever I had in the kitchen. I rarely follow her recipes exactly, but her techniques and general approach are what I still utilize today, as I've become a pretty darn good cook! Smiley Happy Thanks, Rach!

Re: RR's 30 Minute Meals returns to Food Network

I would be ecstatic if Food Network and HGTV would return to their roots, particularly with evening programming.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Being perfect must be a heavy burden.

@loriqvc Haven't watched the Food Network since they canned "Emeril Live".  Have no inkling to return.

Re: RR's 30 Minute Meals returns to Food Network

@homedecor1 (and everyone else who is interested): Just to clarify what @pooky1 mentioned, I verified that there will be new episodes every single day—including weekends—for this whole month. I hadn't realized that Saturdays and Sundays were included, so I wanted to make sure everyone else understood that as well. Lots of new recipes to explore!

Re: RR's 30 Minute Meals returns to Food Network

Rachael Ray show was promoting the 30 min meals new show & they showed clips of the old shows. Wow that was 18yrs ago, I forgot while watching the clips Rachael would go in the fridge grab all the things she needed, her arms were so full then she had to walk over to the island. She always had so many things in her hands and I was always waiting for her to drop something. Seems her staff will be joining her on the new show, love Grant & Janelle(toast lady) wonder if she will have all her arms full with ingredients like she did. Looking forward to it. Her show that I record most of it I skip threw it til near the end when she cooks.

@sissel - In the kitchen setup for the new 30 Minute Meals, the refrigerator is right next to the prep counter, so I'm guessing she won't be carrying around quite as much—though the pantry is across the room, so you never know.

 

I was really surprised at how goofy she was in the first new episode; if she'd been a newbie, her producers probably would have made her tone down the crazy a notch or two. It was still fun to watch, though, especially since the recipe looked delicious.  Smiley Happy

Re: RR's 30 Minute Meals returns to Food Network

Thanks for the info.  I did not realize she was coming back. I welcome any new shows where people actually COOK.  Seems most of Food Network programming, with the exception of mornings, is some sort of competition.  Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Guy's Grocery Games, Baking championships, etc.  I do not personally enjoy this type of format, but I assume many people do since that is what they're showing. I like to watch people cook and learn new recipes and techniques.  Like the Pioneer Woman and the Barefoot Contessa.  I wish they had those shows on in the evenings.
