Happy National Waffle Day! In case you haven’t noticed, we are huge fans of waffles around here. They’re more versatile than you might think: you can spin them sweet or savory, serve them as a sandwich vessel, a dessert or a fruit-topped breakfast. So, to truly honor waffles as the culinary art form that they are, we’ll be cooking up these recipes all day. Join us and tag your creations #RRMagFan!
For breakfast: Waffle Squares
In our April #TBT cover story, Rach’s closest chef pals share the recipes that inspired them most as cooks: Katie Lee’s Beef Stronganoff, Ken Oringer’s Hard Shell Turkey Tacos and Michael Symon’s Greek Meatballs, to name a few. We asked you on Facebook what recipe inspired you the most as a home cook, and the verdict is in! It seems as though chicken and Italian recipes were all pretty influential in your journeys to becoming a home cook. Check out some of our favorite recipes for lasagna, stoup, chicken and marinara sauce, and help someone else fall in love with cooking the same way you did.
Now that we’re officially two days into spring, we can’t wait to start cooking with all our favorite fresh produce that hits markets this time of year: spring greens, spinach, peas, oh my! This week, cook up five delicious easy dinners that celebrate the return of spring. And definitely don’t miss out on an excuse to celebrate National Paella Day….

Rachael Ray Show Recap: #TBT Potluck
How to Throw a #TBT Party
Since we’re sharing Rachael and her friends’ favorite potluck recipes with you this month, we thought it was only fair for you to return the favor. We asked you on Facebook for some of your favorite potluck recipes, and now we can’t wait to plan our next party. Here are our takes on some of the crowd favorites.
The Good Wife
An upscale kitchen that’s actually kid-friendly
Lead character Alicia Florrick had to downsize when her husband went to jail on corruption charges. “She suddenly became a working mom: the kids had to be able to help themselves in the kitchen,” says set director Beth Kushnick.
If you’re gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day (hello, Guinness pints!), let us help you plan the perfect menu. While we love a good Irish meal, we’re getting a little more color-oriented this year. We don’t just mean green Jell-o or frosted cupcakes: our green food is going au natural this year (spinach, matcha, asparagus, oh my!). Check out some of our favorite recipes below!
We’re three days into #TBT month, and it’s already been full of laughs, fun and nostalgia. We got a peek at what Rach, John and Michael Symon looked like as kiddos and OMG weren’t they adorable?!
If you didn’t get a chance to see The Rachael Ray Show this morning, it was all things #TBT, featuring our April cover story stars and Rach’s closest pals: Michael Symon, Adam Perry Lang, Sunny Anderson, Katie Lee, Michael Schlow and of course, her hubby John. Each celeb chef whipped up their throwback recipe from our story as the audience ooh-ed and ahh-ed over Michael Symon’s mouthwatering meatballs, Adam’s peppery potato chip-crusted chicken (Rach calls it “PCC”), Katie’s comforting beef stroganoff and more. It was an hour filled with delicious recipes, laughter and fun. Get all the chefs’ recipes here!
If you’re looking for an excuse to not order Seamless at work, you’re in luck: tomorrow is National Pack Your Lunch Day! We’ve compiled some of our favorite midday recipes that will keep you full and energized until dinner (or, at least until it’s appropriate for an afternoon snack). Whether it’s Meatless Monday or #TreatYoself Friday, these lunches will give definitely give everyone around you brown paper bag envy.
