Tired of turkey?
There's more to Thanksgiving than the staples, and Rachael Ray is serving up something that might just score with the whole family.
Her hearty Touchdown Chili – which brings the heat and a generous helping of beef – is the perfect companion for kicking back on the couch and watching football, regardless of which team you're rooting for.
"I named it 'Touchdown Chili' simply because I made it on the first day of the season for my team, the Jets," she tells PEOPLE. "My husband and I love chili so much."

Joy Behar originally said it was the passage of gay marriage legislation in New York that finally encouraged her to say "I do" to Steve Janowitz, her beau of 29 years.
But now The View co-host admits there was an additional factor involved.
"I waited until all the parents were dead," Behar, 69, said on Monday's Rachael Ray. "So I have no in-laws at all. He has none and I have none. 'Cause marriage is mostly about in-laws, I find. They always want you to visit them and come for lasagna."
In-laws aren't the only thing about marriage Behar hoped to avoid.

Keri Russell hasn't revealed whether she's having any specific food cravings during her second pregnancy. But if it's sweets she's coveting, we have a good idea where she's going to indulge: a Brooklyn bakery called One Girl Cookies.
"I'm definitely a fan of One Girl Cookie's whoopie pies – specifically their pumpkin whoopie pie with cream cheese filling," the actress told PEOPLE.
And Russell isn't the only one going crazy for whoopie pies.

What is it they say about too many cooks?
Clearly the celebrity kitchen's not big enough for at least two TV chefs: Anthony Bourdain and Paula Deen.
Bourdain, the bestselling author and host of Travel Channel's No Reservations, triggered a food feud by blasting the queen of down-home Southern cooking in a TV Guide interview.

Are dogs the masters in some alternate universe? If that alternate universe is Rachael Ray's house, then yes. The talk show host readily admits she's at the mercy of her pit bull, Isaboo.
"She really has the run of the house," Ray tells PEOPLE Pets of her beloved pooch.
And is it any surprise? Isaboo's realm includes the kitchen.

Rachael Ray has jumped out of a plane and held a giant python on her talk show but on Thursday she'll do something that truly terrifies her: She'll wear a skimpy red dress designed by Dancing with the Stars costume designer Randall Christensen.
"It's just so intimidating," Ray told PEOPLE after she taped the episode on Tuesday. "That was more skin than I show at the beach. I'm usually the girl in the long poncho."
DWTS designer Christensen brought up the idea. Ray's staff pitched the idea to her after Ray – a huge fan of DWTS – said that she wouldn't be caught dead wearing one of the reality show's revealing outfits. Ray decided to take on the challenge because her 2011 New Year's resolution is to try to do more things that frighten her.

You'd normally find Rachael Ray in the kitchen, whipping up one of her favorite delicious dishes for a studio audience. But at the moment, the TV chef is catering to a different crowd: needy pets.

No wonder Rachael Ray looks so fantastic and fit. The syndicated TV host is several sizes smaller and brimming with energy.
"I started running 3½ miles every morning after throat surgery to remove a cyst last year," Ray, sipping on a beer, tells PEOPLE at the Amstel Light Burger Bash she hosted Thursday during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival at the Ritz-Carlton. "The gym used to be my adversary. But that has all changed. Now, I look forward to it every morning."
Never one to rise early, Ray, 41, looking hot in jeans and sexy sandals, is ready to rip at 5:50 a.m., and even earlier if she has a TV appearance before her own New York-based talk show.

Oh, the things she could have done.
Martha Stewart is finally putting a figure to the amount she lost when she was sent on charges lying to authorities, and it's a doozey.
"Probably more than a billion dollars, of course," she says matter-of-factly during an interview with Nightline to air Thursday night.
But as much as it pained her to lose those riches, it was humanity that really suffered, she says.

What do you get when you bring domestic doyenne Martha Stewart and queen of quick meals Rachael Ray together? A lot of dishy conversation – but no actual food.
At least that's what happened when Stewart made her first ever appearance on the Rachael Ray Show for an episode airing Thursday. The two TV chefs stayed out of the kitchen during the hour-long taping on Nov. 10, and instead sat down for a revealing chat about food, family and fame.
"I would have been hugely nervous had we gone into the kitchen together," Ray told PEOPLE after the taping. "I didn't know what to expect so I was nervous with anticipation."
