Like spending 30 minutes a day with Rachael Ray? If so, you’ll be happy to know that she’s just signed a 2-year contract with the Food Network, Reuters reports.

Rachael will film 60 more episodes of the wildly popular 30 Minute Meals, less than last year’s count of 80. She’s also expanding her Food Network repertoire with a new primetime show, Rachael’s Vacation, airing Jan. 12.

Whether you love Rachael or find her despicable, she’s here to stay, at least for a little while.  Personally, I credit her (and the Food Network) for cultivating my cooking skills.

I guess all the fuss over pork fat and garlic is over!
