Rachael Ray Show Update

Hey! Guess what?!

You don't need to wait until the 23rd to see the show. They have bumped it up, and now it will be on

NEXT WEDNESDAY, JULY 9.

ack!

I suddenly feel the urge to get my hair done.


So, fix your DVRs, tell your grandma, and tweet your peeps.

Hello. I just found your website. Congrats on the Rachel Ray-thing. While this may not be the correct forum, I was wondering if you have successfully cooked rice in the crockpot? Not that instant stuff, but real brown rice?

Crockpot Lady said...

thanks, Adam and Megan's mom!

anon, I have cooked real rice in the crock. I used white, but imagine brown would work the same way. I have used brown in recipes, and it worked. Make sure you have the correct liquid to rice ratio (the same on the package) and you're good to go.

I'm a regular lurker on this site but haven't checked in for a few days! Holy cow girl! Rachael Ray is the big leagues! I am definitely tuning in.

Love the blog. I have tried a couple of the recipes you have done with much success, and I also love the down to earth style of your writing. Very entertaining as well. Keep up the good work!

OH MY GOSH!
I can't believe that!
How awesome!
I have your feed on my reader - but somehow it got in an ambiguous column that wasn't coming up on my google home page! I totally missed all of this excitement.
I don't have cable but I am going to FIND A WAY to watch the show. Wow. How much fun is that? How cool is that?
So fun.

Anonymous said...

Looking forward to seeing it. :-)

JustJuls - the show isn't on cable. It's on the local ABC station at 10 AM by me, but it probably varies by city.

Anonymous said...

Is this the episode with the dogproofing? I don't see you listed on there.

What else is on your episode? I don't want to miss it!

I'm so excited for you! I have so enjoyed your blog this year. My youngest daughter has celiac too.

Crockpot Lady said...

yup, anon! I'm on with dog-proofing, and picking out produce.
Here you go.

Shelley said...

Hi Stef! I ran across your blog today and thought that your resolution is a very cool idea!! Then I saw the news about Rachel Ray! It all set up on my Tivo. Can't wait to see it I think I'll dig out my crockpot!!! Its about 18 years old (wedding gift) so, maybe I need a new one! Or at least one of the Little Dippers.
Congrats on the show!

Jen said...

WOW! I am watching you right now on Rachael Ray! Great BLOG!

I use my crockpot, but nothing like this. I had checked your blog out before, but lost the bookmark. You are a brave woman!!!! No take out for a year, no grilled meats...I would faint!

Rachel from PA said...

I'm so excited about seeign you on Rachael Ray! I love Rachael Ray, and I love Crock Pot cookig, and I love your blog. I wish that I would be home, or that I had Tivo, but instead I'm headed to my cranky old fashioned VCR right now to start recording!

I told everyone at work "Today my best frend from the internet that I've never met and only shared two emails with is goign to be on Rachael Ray!"

Now they know that I'm crazy, too.

A New Cooker said...

I saw you on Rachel Ray today. When you were making a dinner for your family with the tortilla shells on bottom and cheese on top. What recipe was that?
Thanks!

Crockpot Lady said...

Hi New Cooker, I was making enchillada casserole--it's a big hit in our house!

Hi, I just saw you on Rachael Ray, congrats. You asked for any recipe ideas. There is a yahoo group called Cammipea that is all about crockpot recipes. Maybe you could find 1 that you havent tried already. Love the blog

Nikki said...

WOW!!! My fiance and I saw you on Rachael Ray today and LOVED this idea!!! We have bookmarked this page and are very excited to try all of your great ideas!! THANK YOU!

oceandreams said...

you're friggen famous! :p

SilverSage said...

you were FAB on RR show! so cool and collected! Loved the desert idea too- gotta try it!

oh, and yes to anonymous- brown rice does great in CP. on low- but I have found not all brown rice is created equal and some need more liquid than others. Either do it while you can watch it or put in TOO much liquid and just drain like pasta. (save any juice you drain for soups as it is healthy) For best results flavor the liquid as the rice absorbs it.

I just saw you on The Rachael Ray show. Great show...Congrats. I also love my crock pot but wow what a commitment. Good luck.

When I saw you on the Rachel Ray show I thought to my self I cook a lot in my crock pot so if you would like some of my recipes let me know I will send some your way and some really do clean out the pantry

LADYBUGPLUS said...

Hi Steph,
I saw you today on RR. Where have you been hiding all my life? Your crockpot recipes have triggered me to buy the "Rival Smart Set" crockpot.
The 2 first recipes I will b trying is "CrockPot Barbecue Beef Ribs" and "Company's Coming Potatoes Augratin"
Also I will be making my potatoes and corn in the crockpot from now on. Thank You for taking the time to share your yummy recipes with us.
I am so glad I tuned in to RR today. I will be a constant visitor to your blog now.

Laura

PS. I am sure you have used the Rival Smart Set Crockpot Rachael gave you by now. Can you tell me how you like it. Is the hinged lid
easy to wash? How should I handle the lid? Worried as it looks like it might be a problem. Afraid it may break off with allot of waer and tear.

Carrie said...

Great show! I am now completely addicted to your blog. :) I am always up for something quick and easy, that won't heat the whole kitchen.

I would love to see you try things that are dairy free (one of my kids is horribly allergic to milk), if you are up for a challenge. :)

Momma said...

WAAAAH! I couldn't find this on my cable line-up! I guess I will have to watch it in reruns or online!

I'm awfully proud of you!

Peace - D

Melissa said...

Hey there! I just saw you on Rachael Ray and heard about your blog - decided to come check it out. Can't wait to browse through it all and try my hand at a few of your recipes.

Best of luck to you in completing your goal - especially during these summer months. You're a stronger person than I as I'd be lost without my BBQ'd meals, lol.

All the best!

Baylie said...

ok so who are you

AtlantaMom03 said...

I saw you on RR today and have spent the last 4 hours (not kidding)reading all of your posts. I just had to start on Jan 1 and work my way to today. I love your recipes, ideas, and especially your sense of humor. I am sending your link to my mom in Ohio. She is a true CP queen. What a great idea and way to follow through!!

Katie said...

I just watched your show and your piece was GREAT! Congratulations. I can't imagine how many hits you'll have on your site NOW! I've been a follower for a while and am so impressed with your drive to do this challenge.

You may have already made a version of this, but I have a White Chicken Chili crock pot recipe that I make A LOT.

Hi Steph, Saw you on RR show. Just made your recipe for Baby Back Barbecue Beef Ribs (except I used pork instead of beef) They are crocking now as we speak. My question though is I ordered the Rival@Smart Set crockpot from seeing the one RR show gave you. Just wonder if you used it yet and how do you like it. Kinda worried about the hinged lid if you like it that way also thot it might be easy to break off during cleaning. Also it looks like it might be a awkward to clean! Please give me your opinion. Can't wait till the ribs are done. They smell soooo good TY for putting this blog up for us. Laura

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

I am so sad. I was on vacation for a week and a half and just got back and found out I missed you.

Do you know when/if they are going to re-air the episode?
