This meal is from one of the first cookbooks I’ve ever owned. That book is none other than Rachael Ray’s 30 Minute Meals. As I thumb through this book…the pages are really worn in and have food marks all over them because it was my first bible to experimenting in the kitchen when I lived in Philadelphia.

There are so many quick and easy recipes in this book that are perfect for those days when you come home tired from work and are in need of some quick-to-fix comfort food. One of my signature dishes that everyone requests is actually from this book…Super Sloppy Joes. I’ve had Sloppy Joes before and after trying this recipe and I tell you none come close to Rachael’s.

So after a long day, for that football game you’re heading to, or for a family get together…this is sure to please anyone and everyone even if they say they’re not big fans of Sloppy Joes. 🙂

Also, if Rachael Ray’s recipes entice you then so will her many kitchen products. I happen to own her 5 and 7 inch santoku knives by Furi and besides having a comfortable rubber grip for safe and quick chopping, they slice like a dream! I also have her Froggi mezzaluna for chopping up smaller veggies and such.

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
