Someone’s got a big birthday on the 25th, and we’re throwing her a little love.

Leading Lady Rachael Ray

Hi, Boss! 

We just wanted to say happy 50th to the most talented, generous, funny, smart, supercool media (and all that other stuff) mogul out there. We love what we do, because we love what you do, and we wish you 50 more years of crushing every damn thing you try.

We love Rach so much, we named a kick-ass birthday cake after her! Check out our Spumoni Ice Cream Cake with Mascarpone Whipped Cream

But we're not the only ones who love her. We asked readers for their birthday messages, and they flooded our social feeds. A few favorites:

"Hi, Rach! Since I see you every morning on TV, that means we're friends, right? So it's only right that I wish you a happy five-oh! Strut your stuff, Girl." —Darnesha Smith

"I'm wishing a happy birthday to the one and only Rachael Ray, who not only helped me get back my love of cooking that I'd lost so many years ago but also fueled my long-lost passion into something so wonderful. You're the BEST, Lady!" —Katie O'Keeffe

"Happy, happy birthday, Rachael!! You are an inspiring woman who gives people confidence and hope. Thank you for being real." —Gena Kaplan

"Thanks for making 50 look fabulous in so many ways! You have inspired me to cook healthy and fresh and still have plenty of time with my kids. Keep inspiring all of us!" —Miriam Arnold Lippe
