Rachael Ray has proven to the world that the mentality of faking it until you make it really works. Although Ray has no formal cooking training, she has become one of the nation’s favorite home cooks through hard work and dedication to putting on a good show. Her quick and easy attitude to cooking has helped turn many nervous cooks into ones capable of feeding their entire family. Ray has been on our screens for almost two decades thanks to her popularity and helpfulness. She started her career by publishing a recipe book titled, “30 Minute Meals,” a book that would inspire a show of the same name in 2001. Ray hosted that show from 2001 to 2012, which became essential viewing for thousands of daytime TV viewers.
Since 2006 she has had her own show, The Rachael Ray show, that not only offers advice from the host, but also the guests she has on. She invites her guests to share with her audience how they achieved their accomplishments in life, be they in the sporting, professional, or entertainment industries. Ray favors a rough and ready approach to cooking, believing that too much measuring takes away from the creative process, and she asks her guests to share their creative solutions to problems in the kitchen. Sometimes she is pleasantly surprised by what her guests suggest, and this was especially the case with this particular woman. She couldn’t hide her surprise when she saw the results of her advice about bread!

30 Minute Meals is where it all started for celebrity cook Rachael Ray. She first released her cookbook with that title in 1999, and it was an overnight success. She published another three books in the next two years, with home cooks lapping up all of the advice they could get from her helpful guide. Her printed guides became so popular that soon she was to be the host of her very own cooking show in 2001, also called 30 Minute Meals. Now she was on our screens, bringing her tried and trusted recipes to life and making cooking seem less like a chore for thousands of cooks and viewers at home.
