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
The making of a magazine story takes a little magic, a little fun—and a whole lotta work. Thankfully, Rach, John, their chef besties (and Isaboo!) made the April cover story on how to throw a Throwback Thursday potluck look super easy. So, what does it take to throw the party of the year? One afternoon in a downtown loft in New York City, a bunch of folks came together—makeup artists, wardrobe consultants, photographers, editors, stylists to cook all those delicious dishes and make them look good, too—to throw a #TBT party and capture it on film. (The bathtub on set filled with ice and prosecco might have helped a little, too.) And that was before the guests even showed up! Read more
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!
Lisa Freedman, Every Day with Rachael Ray’s Home and Market Editor, walked (many) miles through the 2015 International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago last week. While she attempts to catch up on emails—and sleep—you can check out the five most ingenious new products on display at the show. Note: These photos aren’t the prettiest, but you try trekking through a convention center while carrying hundreds of catalogs, armed with a measly iPhone camera!
OXO Bright Illuminating Digital Hand Mixer
This fall, OXO will debut small kitchen electrics—that’s right, it will be the first time the company releases anything with a plug! The line includes coffee makers, toasters, an immersion blender and, our favorite, a hand mixer. It has an LED light that shines when the beaters turn, so bakers can actually see what they’re mixing. Genius! oxo.com, $80
