Rachael Ray: Just in Time!: All-New 30-Minutes Meals, Plus Super-Fast 15-Minute Meals and Slow It Down 60-Minute Meals

Rachael Ray, Author Clarkson Potter $19.95 (336p) ISBN 978-0-307-38318-1
Cookbook dynamo and television personality Ray (30 Minute Get Real Meals, 365: No Repeats, etc.) is back with another collection of dishes, this time offering plenty of her trademark 30 minute meals, give or take a few 15- and 60-minute dishes, virtually all of which are within the capabilities of most cooks, provided they have a well-stocked pantry. Doubling her typical prep time, Ray's able to whip up work-intensive fare such as Crab Stuffed Shells, as well as straightforward dishes requiring longer cooking times such as Sausage, Mushroom and Polenta Lasagna, and Roasted Poblano and Sliced Steak Chili. Most of Ray's recipes are solid, family-pleasing fare, though her Grilled Eggplant Roll-Ups, in which the vegetable is stuffed with a slice of ham and a ricotta cheese mixture, may prove frustrating and messy. Still, the hits outweigh the misses, and if readers enjoy (or can at least tolerate) Ray's tendency to make up and overuse cutesy food terms (""EVOO,"" ""sammies,"" ""stoups,"" etc.), they will find this to another solid, reliable source for everyday meals.
