Martha Stewart Slams Rachael Ray

Everybody’s favorite ex-con, Martha Stewart, evidently doesn’t like Rachael Ray.  In a recent interview Martha trashes Rachael’s new cookbook and her cooking skills!!  Martha further goes on to say Rachael is more of “an entertainer” than a bitch teacher like her.

Rachael, of course, took the high road…no real surprise there and deferred to Martha’s superior skills.  Even going as far as to say she would rather eat one of Martha’s meals than her own.  Class act Rachael!

See Martha, you don’t have to be a bitch shrew to succeed in life. 

Rachael’s audience is not the same target group as Martha’s.  Rachael has never pretended to be anything other than the person she is.  She shows busy people how to make decent meals fast.  Rachael isn’t making pastry chef level creations or decorating her house in intricate oragami ornaments for Christmas.

Martha gets a lump of coal in her stocking this year!

Team Rachael Ray!!!!

Ramen Noodle Lasagna

This isn’t your mama’s lasagna but it’s good.  Something out of the ordinary.  I would think kids should like this too.  I made some and it was delicious.

Go to http://www.mixtureofsorts.com find the Ramen Noodle Tuesday recipies.  Next is Ramen Noodle Taco Salad!! 

If you try it let me know what you think.  I did add hamburger for a more complete meal.

Enjoy!
