Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
`Cooking `Round the Clock' is by Rachael Ray, who is seeming more and more like an old friend, as this is the fourth of her books I am reviewing on top of watching her an average of 90 minutes a day on the Food Network and twice that on Fridays when her travelogue / celebrity interview shows air in the evening.

For those of you who really live the 30 Minute lifestyle and can't wade through my usual 1000 words, I will say that this volume is as good or better than it's `30 minute' precursors because it gives recipes for those times of the day which simply are not well covered by most cookbooks. And, Miss Rachael continues her previous style of easily available ingredients, very few `convenience' prepared foods, lots of fresh meats and vegetables, and no preaching about prowling local farmers' markets for the stuff which was in the ground two hours ago.

I continue to be impressed by the fact that both her '30 Minute Meals' and `$40 a Day' concepts were all hers before she started with the Food Network. And, after six cookbooks in about four years, I also like to think that all her recipes are also her own creations, although from the evidence of her acknowledgments and other chef / writers' practices (such as Jamie Oliver), I suspect a lot of Rachael's contributions to these books are rough drafts on TV scripts, cocktail napkins, and Dictaphones, all assembled and tightened up by a copy editor. My mother, for one, wonders how she can manage three shows AND cookbook writing all at the same time.

Rachael Ray can be painfully perky at times and I wonder at her inner life, but the woman sure can cook. And unlike other glamorous FoodTV babes who make it look easy but produce quite challenging recipes with hard-to-find/expensive ingredients, Ray's dishes are cheap, easy and good. Friends still ask about her cream-cheese potato recipe that I made for Thanksgiving--three years ago!

Format: Paperback
Rachael Ray is the Queen of the Easy, Great-Looking But Inexpensive Meal on the food-tv network. The recipes in this book fall right into that genre; all the ones we've tried have been quick, simple, & good! The chili-dog nachos & buffalo chicken salad are a particular family fave (Rachael presented it on her show last January as a "Big-Game-Day menu", so now we always refer to it as the Super Bowl dinner.)

All that being said, WHERE'S THE FREAKIN' INDEX? And what's with the hard-to-read aqua & salmon type? This is a good cookbook that could have been SOOO much better if the editors had only been paying a little more attention to usefulness.

I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if I could, all on the strength of the recipes. The editors should hang down their heads & weep with shame on this one.

I have to totally disagree with Cinnamon Heart's review. Rachael DOES NOT rely heavily on processed ingredients, and she does offer a wide variety of recipes. Her recipes are not thrown together, but well thought out with plenty of options for any occasion. Not every recipe contains taco shells and tortillas. The canned/pre-packaged items she uses are for simplicity - beans, broth, dried pasta, etc. But otherwise, she uses fresh ingredients. Also contrary to Cinnamon Heart, she does not instruct people to chop lettuce for salads. She almost exclusively uses the pre-washed and bagged lettuce. I have never seen her use bottled salad dressing or pasta sauce - she makes her own. Her recipes include many kinds of seasonings and spices (not just jalapenos). Her recipes are not all tex-mex but include a wide variety of tastes and types. She also uses everyday kitchen tools that just about every kitchen probably has - you don't have to go out and buy any new equipment for just one recipe. Her main utensils include a knife, cutting board, and pots/pans, with the occaisional use of the microwave, food processor, and blender (I think I've seen her use the blender once in the year since I've been watching her).

This particular book is laid out as it is titled. She begins with breakfast/brunch recipes and then moves her way to lunch, dinners (early and late), and late night snacks.

She will rely on some boxed ingredients when baking, but she is the first to say that she is not a big baker and uses pre-packaged mixes to accomodate her 30 minute timeline.

The only thing I would say is that a 30 minute meal can sometimes turn into a 45 minute meal for me since my knife skills aren't nearly as good as hers. Yes, she's perky, but she's also engaging and entertaining.

I also have to challenge the previous reviewer who very obviously has maybe caught only a few episodes of RR's 30 minute meal show. Her recipes are easy and focus on fresh and healthy ingredients. With even a bit more creativity you can "health" up her recipes even more if you feel the need to do that. I watch religiously every day and I can reassure you that she doesn't use tortillas and taco shells frequently. It's quite the opposite. I'm amazed by the wide array of flavor combinations that she continually comes up with.

My only thing -- you don't really need the book. Tape the show, and download the recipes (which are all available of the website) and make your own book of your favorites.

Bottom line -- Great recipes for people who want good healthy food fast.
