    Hey Rachael!
    I’m just one of these people that adore you, you probably won’t even have time to read this.. but if you do, I’m from Montreal, Canada, I have to let you know that you’re AMAZING!! I always make your jumbo meatball pizza and actually almost everything you make , I make it and it’s absolutely “YUM-O” like you say! You’re new show is soooo addictive!! Just keep up the excellent work cuz you are our shinning star and we love you so much!!! The people in your life are so lucky to have you as a friend/family member!! Take Care and I hope you will come to Canada so I can have a chance to be in the audience ( like a dream come true)!!!!! Bye now and I wish you the best of luck ( even though you don’t even need it!!)

    P.S. You are the cutest person on earth with such a bubbly personality!

  3. Jamie says:

    When are you coming to the south? (Preferably, northern Alabama…:) )

  4. KK Snaith says:

    Hey Rach,

    Love you, your shows and your magazine. Looking forward to your new show :) I wish you could consider the Downingtown/Coatesville, Pa area. You have a lot of fans in this area and we’d sure like to see ya!!! PLUS it’s beautiful country out here and I volunteer to be your tour guide if you come out. A suggestion for your web site though, how about an question & answer section for those of us who are not sure sometimes how to do something (like snap and cut asparagus)Prayers for your continued sucess, Always KK

  5. Dianna says:

    We love you Racheal. We watch all of your shows and we have cook books and all of your knives they are supper. You are a great person and you give alot of good ideas keep up the good work. people that talk bad about you it is because they are jealous of your success.

  6. BrandiAnn says:

    Hello Racheal,

    My daughters name is Rachel May and she just loves your show and so do I. We are a family of Six. Kids 12, 6, 22 months and 11 months.
    You made a comment about the expence of meat these days and I totally agree. We live on a paycheck of about 2000.00 a month to pay all the bills and buy groceries. So I have learned how to budget. My favorite find is the Sam’s clubs and costcos, because many small businesses and caters buy from them the meat is usally better quality. Also since we live over an hour away from these kinds of stores with gas prices we don’t get to go very often. So my next budget find was at my local meat department. They will package what they call an economy pack. it is usally about a hunderd dollars worth of meat for $49.99, the meat varies but it is usally somthing like 5lbs. ground beef , 5 lbs. pork chops, boneless rump roast, 3lbs. bolonga, pork steak and chicken hind quarters. (all kids like dark meat right). Any way this has helped our family continue to get protein in our menues. May meat department offer this service but it is often not advertised so you have to ask, and they like it if you call it in ahead of time so they have time to package it with out you waiting at the counter.

    Thanks again for your show in Iowa it comes on right at morning nap time. Woohoo!

  7. Solina Tubbs says:

    Dear Racheal,
    I LOVE all of your shows. I can’t believe you have another out, but that’s fine with me, gives me something else to watch on tv. I want you to know that you are SUPER. I just saw on tv that there is this website that makes fun of you. I think that person should just get a life and stop being jealous. Keep up the good work and GOOD LUCK.

  8. Keith Pierce says:

    Thank you Racheal Ray,

    The US of A needs U. You are an entertaining, talented and real person that provides uplifting moments daily for my wife. That tone is carried on through her to the rest of the family. In a time when so much depressing news enters the household, your messages are like blast of needed sunshine after a long winter. If only we had more of that in our US of A. Thank you Sincerely! Keep up the good work, and never forget to spend quality and fun time with your own family. They are what keeps us going!

  10. Angie Lichner says:

    Hi Rach,

    I have watched all of your shows and I love them and you. I am at work when you’re on so I record your shows. When I come home the first thing I do is turn on your show. Yes, my husband has to wait for dinner. But he doesn’t mind since he has benefitted from your tasty recipes. I would like to know when you will be in the Kansas City, MO area. Believe me I will get out of work, church or family birthdays and weddings to come see you. I love they way you use a lot of the traditional Italian words (i.e. mopping; throwing salt over the shoulder for luck) that I grew up with. Rachael I’m glad to have you and your wonderful smile as part of my very hectic day.
    God Bless you and John and Izaboo.

    Rach

    As I watch your show in the morning I work out for 40 minutes. You have so much energy, that the 40 minutes go by very fast. So your show will be the reason for my weight loss.

  16. Jim Schoepflin says:

    I saw you promoting your “garbage” bowl and have always
    wondered why all the Food Network/PBS personalities don’t stress saving
    uncooked veggies and scraps for the COMPOST PILE or backyard garden –
    especially since many of you claim to be using fresh herbs from

  18. Ellen Golden says:

    Hi Rachel, I enjoy your shows very much. You recently had on a guest (I believe that it was Marishka Hargity) who gave you a long-sleeved tee-shirt with the word “fly” on it. I would love to order one from her, but I can’t locate her on the web — please help. Thanks so much!

  19. Sandra says:

    Your great. Thanks Val

  24. Diane says:

    Hi Rach!

    Really love you and your shows! How about putting San Diego on your tour sometime? We’ve got wonderful sights to see and San Diego is an especially dog-friendly town!

    Rach, last week I happened to be out picking up some last minute things for Easter and happened to be at a “Cost Plus” store. I was looking for a garbage bowl and couldn’t find anything suitably sized and plastic for my small apartment-kitchen. I decided to check out the display of patio-ware and happened to see a sturdy plastic ice bucket…for $6.99 it’s perfect to use as a garbage bowl! It has two handle areas that make it east to pick up, it has an inner bucket and best of all it has a lid, so it’s light-weight, counter top friendly and the availability of the lid keeps the contents from spilling out if the bucket owner happens to excel at klutzy kitchen capers. It’s not an official Rachel Ray Garbage Bowl, but it’s the next best thing for those of us who need a garbage bowl and don’t want to order it thru the official web site (sorry, but the ice bucket was cheaper too). Oh, and I also have a cool little plastic scoop now that can be used for flour, sugar, etc. Just wanted to let you know that I found a pretty useful alternative to the garbage bowl (and what a great concept that is!)

    Hugs from your faithful fan Diane and her faithful rescued Golden Retriever Tanith (aka Princess Tanith Puppy-Puppy, or Miss Woofie).
    Give Isaboo a big kiss from us! You do such wonderful work, and I wish you more success than you know what to do with…you deserve all the best things life has to offer.

    Diane
