Known for her down-to-earth nature and casual delivery, Rachael Ray was an immediate hit when she premiered on the Food Network with 30 Minute Meals back in 2001. Unlike chefs on other programs, Rachael wasn’t afraid to make mistakes. She dropped ingredients on the floor, unwrapped food on camera and occasionally set the kitchen on fire. The show ran for 11 years, but after a long hiatus, 30 Minute Meals is back!
