Celebrity Cook-Along, Rachael Ray!

Hey everyone, Welcome to the last Celebrity Cook-Along! You know what they say, if you can't stand the heat... get out of the kitchen in less than 30 minutes! Oh yea, I do crack myself up:@) This month I invited you to join me in making Rachael Ray's Super Sloppy Joes, recipe HERE, or any other recipe from her.

Sloppy Joes are a true crowd pleaser! 
Don't hesitate to consider them for tailgating or football parties.
Just don't forget the napkins...
  • We thought they had a very robust flavor and a nice thick sauce.
  • I think the "super sloppy" in the recipe title is because she uses hard rolls... I recommend a potato hamburger roll, potato rolls have a little more body and worked out just fine!
  • Shown with Refrigerator Bread and Butter Pickles recipe HERE.
  • They were very good and my sons said they'd like to have them again.
Family tested and Earl approved!

So, what did you make this month? Link up and let's see!
Links to older posts are welcome.
Have a happy day:@)


  1. Hi Lynn,
    I can't believe it! I'm the first person to link, normally because of the time difference I'm one of the last.
    I made salmon and a great tasting dessert.
    Thanks for hosting

  2. I will have to remember to link up to this next time. My daughters would love those sloppy joes. Too many onions and peppers for me. I think a toasted bun would be great too. We are going to be dehydrating a lot this month. Wonder how I can make that into a cook-along.

  3. We all like sloppy joe's. I should have participated now that I'm wanting one. Soon!


  4. What a great idea to use a heartier bun for sloppy joes! My usual choice of a hamburger bun always seem to fall apart & are difficult for the grandkidlets to eat.

    Thanks for holding another fun Celebrity Cook Along, Lynne. I was going to make one of Rachael's pork recipes but I didn't want to hurt Earl's feelings. *wink*


    p.s. Can't wait to see who you're going to pick to cook with next month!

  5. I love sloppy joe's and could live on them..but I dont make them very well. Guess I better give this recipe a try..yummo!!!

  6. We LOVE sloppy joes..I fixed our first ones one week after we married..and I didn't know straight up from down about cooking. They turned out good, tho.:))
    These look fantastic...
    Thanks so much for letting us have such fun..

  7. Oh I love a potato bun! I had to chuckle at Earl & his "sammies are yummo!" :-) Thanks for the Cook-Along Fun Lynn!

  8. Those look very good. I do enjoy watching Rachel Ray cook! Fun party!

  9. Great cook and recipe choice, Lynn! I enjoyed your Cook-along very much. Thanks for hosting.

  11. Greetings folks from the Amish community of Lebanon county. Richard from Amish Stories.

  12. I agree with Earl and R.Ray!...YUMMO!

  13. Thanks, Lynn, for hosting this fun Cook Along!! I'm looking forward to find out next month's Celebrity Chef so I can start scouting out my recipe.

  14. These look great.

    Great party, Lynn!

  15. Mmmm..I haven't made Sloppy Joes in ages and yours look really good!

  16. First time joining your fun linky party! I made RR's Monkey French Toast. Cant wait to see who next months Celebrity Chef is.

  17. I tried a dessert of hers so I could join in and none of us liked it. Maybe we can get something together tomorrow! So disappointed!
    Looks fun.

  18. I love sloppy joes when they are made right. Yours sound delicious and I'd love to have one on a potato or buttermilk bun. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  19. Hey Girl,
    One of my favorite recipes is one of Rachel's. Maybe I'll get busy
    and put it together for your party. Nope, I'm not telling, you will just have to wait and see!

  20. Hi, My first time here! Great site! I've just linked up a delicious pasta recipe of RR. Following you. Have a lovely week!

  21. I love sloppy joes.. especially home made ones! thanks for sharing. xo marlis

  22. Funny! I made this recipe last week. I hadn't made sloppy Joes for years so I Googled for a recipe and chose this one. We ate ours on some nice whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted, they were just right!

    Blessings, Debbie

  23. I will tell you this - I love a lot of her recipes and have made some - I find it much more then 30 minutes - I don't have anyone to get all the items ready and shopped for and cleaned up afterwards - but I do like her!

  24. I'm going to have to stop coming by here close to lunch time. Those look awesome. I love a good sloppy joe.

  25. Hi Lynn,
    I brought you one of my favorite Rachael Ray recipes, Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Thank you for hosting this great linky party!

  26. I'm sorry I couldn't join you this time! We hosted our annual golf outing with dinner at our home afterward this past Sunday and I had a plate full! I love a good Sloppy Joe and I must try adding some peppers in my next batch of frig pickles.

  27. The Celebrity Cook Along sounds so fun! How can I join in?


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
