Pumpkin Soup

Dear Rach,

A few years ago you made a simple Pumpkin Soup recipe on your Thanksgiving special on Food Network.  I’d like to make the recipe this year for my Thanksgiving table.  Can you post it for me.



Hi Gracie,

Here ya go! Happy Turkey Day!

    Rach, You are just the best ever. When my husband and I moed to our over 55 community I was sick to death of cooking. Your program gives me great ideas and now my husband loves the “Rachael Ray dinners” All due to you and the great show. Keep on cooking I love you.

  7. Cindy says:

    Hey Rachael! Have been watching you for years! Never attempted ANYTHING that I have seen on the food network, just love to watch you guys.
    Anyway, I think that the pumpkin soup recipe looks delish and would like to try it this year. On that same program, you made some potatoes and the turkey breasts that looked YUM-O and can’t find those recipes either. They were from a 2004 episode that aired this morning. Would you send over a link for those too??!!
    Thanks so much! Looking forward to a wonderful 60-minute Thanksgiving!

    Dear Rachael,
    I have used so many of your recipes that I thought I would share one of mine with you.
    I love all the flavored mayonnaise,but never have the time to make them from scratch,until now.
    If you take any bottled vinaigrette(raspberry is my favorite)about a half a cup,one egg yolk and blend,you have the best mayo ever!!
    Hope you have a chance to try it.

    Re: Sweet Potato Side Dish (made in food processor & topped with nuts) – from today’s show 11/19/08

    I missed part of your show today, but want to get the sweet potato side dish topped with nuts which you were making in the food processor.

    I looked all over the website with no luck.

    Can you help me please??

  12. Happy Mommy says:

    Hey Rach,

    I would really like to make your apple and onion stuffin muffin’s. Would it still be good if I substituted yeast free bread with home-made yeast free croutons and halved the recipe?

    Or do you have another suggestion for me. Having to live yeast free made stuffing a thing of the past, but I would love to change that if I could.

    Thanks a million,
    Happy Mommy

  13. Pam says:

    Hi Rachael,

    Last year and the year before, you made a roasted butternut squash with maple syrup. I can’t find that recipe anywhere. Can you please post the recipe again. It was delicious. Have a Happy Turkey Day to you and your family.

    Thanks, Pam

  15. 1st timer says:

    this is my 1st time cooking dinner for my family on Thanksgiving. I want to make our traditional stuffing, but I want to make in the muffin pans. Can I do that without altering my cornbread stuffing recipe??

  16. Evelyn Hampton says:

    Last week (17-21) you had a guest (think it was Vanna White on the day in question) and you made a pumpkin pie that ‘was so simple a 5-yr. could make it’. Would you please reply with the recipe since I didn’t write the ingridents at that time.
    Watch the show almost everyday and make most of the recipes. I’m retired (73) and my neighbors love when I share the results with them. Thanks for the neat show. Evelyn

    Dear Rachael,

    I was recently diagnosed with diabetes, and I was wondering if you had recipes that are low in carb and made with a sugar substitute. Love your show, and I pray your surgery goes well.

  18. CIS says:

    So keep up the good cooking and all the best for your holidays and christmas and new year

    Hi Rachael!
    I’m a 25-year old woman from Sweden. First of all i have to say that i really love your show. Your show came here to Sweden about 2 years ago. A couple of months ago you made Swedish meatballs… and I was thinking to myself: what is she doing :) I don’t know where you got the recipe (im sure there were really tasty) but that wasn’t Swedish meatballs :) So im sending you a recipe know for “real” meatballs.
    I know the spelling is wrong but hey, im from Sweden :)
    500 gram minced meat 50% beef 50% pork.
    1 big egg
    1 onion, (not chopped) run it through a mixer until its all musched up.
    salt, black pepper, white pepper.
    about 1 1/2 table spoon veal-stock.
    cream (about 2 tablespoons)
    breadcrums, until it gets firm and smooth.
    fry in real butter. No EVOO :)
    Serve with potaoes, brown gravy and lingonberryjam.
    Enjoy! / Annika

    Hi, Rach!

    Good luck with the surgery, I’m praying for you.

    Here’s an untested recipe that I developed and think you and John will enjoy (holiday sidedish).

    Acorn Squash with Nuts
    Serves 2
    Time: 75 minutes
    1 medium acorn squash, halved and cleaned
    4 Tsp butter halved
    Black pepper
    1/2 c maple syrup
    1/4 c cider vinegar
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp mace
    1/4 c tree nut kernels, whole (acorns or pine nuts preferred)
    Place squash in baking dish. Add butter to each half and sprinkle with pepper. Loosely cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for 35 minutes.

    Combine (in order) the syrup, vinegar, cinnamon and mace in 1-qt saucepan over medium flame and reduce by 1/3.

    Remove squash from oven and remove foil. Brush some of the sauce liberally over flesh and pour the remainder into each cavity. Replace foil and bake an additional 25 minutes.

    Heat nuts over medium flame, shaking constantly, until squash is done. Kill flame and turn off oven. Remove squash from oven and remove foil. Add the toasted nuts to each half and serve. Bon apetit!

  25. Rachel,
    Me and My 9 year old daughter caught you and Mario on Iron Chef America last night and we loved it, She loves watching your show and so do I.. You were awesome last night on ICA and I was so exicted that you won congradulations…

    Thanks so much.

  28. Janet says:

    This looks amazing. My husband makes a similar soup using sweet potatoes from our garden, also delish. I will pass it on to him. You’re the best! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  29. rachel says:

    Speaking of recipes…what happened to the pictures of the recipes? Now there is just advertising when you look up http://www.rachaelray.com/recipe. I really like seeing pictures — it helps me decide if I want to try it or not!!

    Dear Rachael,
    I hope you are doing well. I just lost my brother in law to throat cancer. I hope that’s not the case for you.BEST WISHES FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

  31. Christine says:

    Rachel—-I use something similiar to your garbage bowl when I work in the kitchen. But—I put a plastic grocery bag in the bowl to line it (eg, Wal-Mart etc.) then I just tie it up and throw it away. It helps save some time and mess in the kitchen. Happy Cooking!
