That's right! Rachael Ray’s OG series, 30 Minute Meals, is BACK! Starting April 1 at 12|11c, Rachael will host 30 new episodes of 30 Minute Meals in 30 days — one every day in the month of April.

Unlike previous seasons of 30 Minute Meals, this batch will kick off with a premiere simulcast across linear, TVE and Facebook. Fans can tune in and log on to watch Rachael serve up her signature style of can-do dishes and time-saving tricks, starting with an easy recipe for chicken patty parm meatballs, which she’s making in the first episode. She knows just the trick for putting new spins on family-friendly meals; in other episodes she’ll make breakfast for dinner, cast-iron skillet pizza and the quickest pot pie you’ve ever had.

Want an early look at what’s to come on this season of 30 Minute Meals? Us too! Good news: The first five episodes will be available starting Friday, March 29 on Food Network’s TV Everywhere platform and the Food Network app. And over on Food Network’s Facebook page, you can watch select episodes (with no commercials!) in real time on April 1, April 8, April 15 and April 22.

After filming the new season of 30 Minute Meals in the heart of Brooklyn, Rachael is set to dish on the restaurants she loves most in the borough on the brand-new digital companion series Rachael’s Best of Brooklyn. Starting March 29 and airing every Friday on FoodNetwork.com, this series will feature Rachael as she introduces us to a new eatery in Brooklyn and highlight the dishes and chefs who make each spot special. Look out for an over-the-top polenta table at Food Network Star winner Christian Petroni’s Fortina restaurant, as well as a dine-in movie theater with way more than just popcorn on the menu, among other must-know destinations in Brooklyn.

To fans watching at home: Rachael has a jam-packed season of 30 Minute Meals planned for you, and now there are more ways than ever to watch, learn and interact with her. Get ready for tons of how-tos, step-by-step explanations and all the friendly chatter you know and love from Rachael as she shares crowd-pleasing plates day after day. One more thing: Go ahead and set the timer, because all of Rachael’s go-to recipes will be on the table in 30 minutes or less.
