Rachael Ray's Hard-Shell Red-Eye Tacos
Tacos are great when you're partying. The greasy food soaks up maybe "one too many." Even better, these tacos have a nice shot of caffeine. Red eyes, meet the food equivalent of hair of the dog.

DIY Curry Powder
Don't have any curry powder? Just mix 4 tsp. each ground cumin, coriander, and turmeric and 1 tsp. each granulated garlic, granulated onion, and ground ginger.

This shrimp really knows how to party—there's a boilermaker (that's a shot of whiskey and a beer) in it!
Rachael Ray's Flank Steak with Shishito-Shiso Salsa Verde & Beet Carpaccio
I love shishito peppers because they're a gamble. Most are mild, but occasionally you get one that's hot as hell. Here, the seared peppers are part of a citrusy, salty chunky green sauce for sliced steak—maybe it's hot, maybe it's not!
Rachael Ray's Hanger Steak with Scallions & Lime with Anda Bhurji (Indian-Style Scrambled Eggs)

Rachael Ray's Spaghetti Carbonara with Mushrooms
I make carbonara for my husband, John, after every big show he plays in NYC. This is an earthy and meat-free version of his favorite dish.
