Rachael Ray’s “30 Minute Meals” ran on the Food Network from 2001 to 2012 and aired more than 300 episodes. Now, the celebrity cook will bring back the show that made her a household name. Ray took to Instagram to announce that the revival of “30 Minute Meals” is making its return to Food Network this spring.

“I couldn’t be more excited: #30MinuteMeals is coming back!” she wrote in the caption of her video. “We’re bringing you new recipes and new ideas. Keep an eye on @foodnetwork for more updates about the show and tag a friend who’s just as excited as you are!”


In the video, she notes that the new show will “have all the cool vibe that we had back in the day, but it’s going to be for a whole new generation.”

She also promises a slew of entirely new, quick recipes, stating, “It’s fun, fresh food you’ve never seen on the daytime show, and you certainly never saw in all of the more than, what, 15 years we did them on Food Network.”

The new season will have 30 episodes and will also feature a digital component, including an online companion show hosted by Ray.

“We are rolling deep this time around, proving to everyone that, yes, these are really meals you can cook in 30 minutes or less,” Ray said in a press statement. “And our show will now be part of Food Network’s on-demand offering, so our friends can actually binge-watch their meals.” That’s right — another show to add to your binge-watching list!

The Food Network also celebrated the revival of “30 Minute Meals.” Courtney White, Food Network president, said in a statement, “Rachael Ray is a culinary firebrand as evidenced by her success across her television shows, magazine, books, live events, philanthropy and all of her businesses,”

White also added, “Her time-saving and creative ideas for whipping up delicious meals at home are perfect for the home cook of any level, while her infectious energy and enthusiasm make viewers feel like they are right there cooking along with her in the kitchen.”

With people busier than ever and looking to save time in the kitchen, the reboot will likely be pretty popular. And luckily, it’ll be here fairly soon. The new season of the show kicks off on April 1.
