Rachel's cookbooks span the gamut from gourmand to basic everyday food, and from simple to complex, so there is definitely an option for everybody. If you are looking for a collection of kid-friendly recipes and perhaps a way to get the younger members of your family more interested in meal prep, we recommend Cooking Rocks! and Yum-o! The Family Cookbook. Now if you need both kid-friendly meals and some well-suited to entertaining your more sophisticated friends, The All-Occasion fits the bill, though it is worth noting that every recipe you'll find in it has already been published in one of her other books.
Memories and Meals from a Sweet and Savory Life is one of here newest books and reads just as much like a personal memoir as it does a cookbook. Whether you are in the mood for an inspiring anecdote, to learn some practical kitchen tips, or to try out a new recipe, it has what you are looking for.
Those with a hectic schedule who require the most efficient use of their time will want Week in a Day, which shows you how to prepare five days' worth of meals in one, so you won't have to start cooking after you get home from work. True Rachel Ray fans, and those who are ready to take on some complex preparations, will enjoy My Year In Meals And Cocktails, which contains recipes of dishes she serves to friends and family in her home. If you are looking for a themed cookbook, consider Everyone Is Italian on Sunday or The Book Of Burger. Whichever one you choose, make sure you have a great set of cookware and kitchen knives on hand to aid in your endeavors.
