It is. It stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

And I've heard a lot of people use it now; some olive oils actually use it on their labels. It is a lot shorter to say!

She's so annoying I can't stand to watch anything she's on. I guess the thing that annoys me the most about her is how fake she is. On her shows she's all smiley and syrupy sweet, but if you see her on an interview, she's short, curt and borderline rude. I love the food network and watch a few of their shows, but if she's on, I'm tuning out.

Every time I've heard her use EVOO, she has also said Extra Virgin Olive Oil. So, why bother with the initials??

I don't like her expressions either, especially "sammies."

That said, I've never hear the expression "shut the FRONT door." I've always heard it as "shut the door."

I think the expression is outdated in that the meaning has changed. It used to mean "wow" or "no way!" or "I can't believe it!" I just tried looking up the meaning on line and the majority of links I got think it means an even ruder version of "shut up."

Shut the front door = STFU. I think Stacy London popularized it - she was certainly doing it long before RR.

My only Rachel Rayism is actually a Bourdainism -- that she did to food what Hitler did to Poland.

Exactly!!! It's the same redundancy in her cookbooks. Many recipes state 2 TB EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). Twice around the pan--eyeball it.

I use to love her show about 6-7 years ago, even met her once at a book signing, but gradually grew tired of her and her cutesy sammies and such.

Still, some of her recipes are pretty good.

That's what I was going to say...drives me crazy! Say EVOO or say Extra Virgin Olive Oil, one or the other. If you don't think people know what EVOO is...don't use it. There I feel better now.

You said it! I used to love her show but as she was on longer she got more childish and over the top. The silly sayings, that giggle all of her exaggerated movements and "My Sweetie". Way to much.

Shut the Front Door is the not swearing way of saying STFU or shut the F-word up. It's like when I was a kid someone would say Jesus, Mary and Joseph because they wanted to swear without swearing. It's the same thing. If someone didn't know and heard someone say "Jesus, Mary and Joseph" they would be like ? yeah? what about them.

I think Rachel Ray says Shut the Door because she's trying to be so goody goody that Shut the Front door is too naughty for her so she's trying to clean up even that expression.

I actually like her. I don't mind the stoup, sammies, EVOO. I give her credit for teaching me how to cook simple meals. When I decided to stay at home, I had to take over cooking details. DH always did the cooking! Her easy recipes made cooking fun and gave me confidence in the kitchen.

I did have to stop watching her talk show because she repeats herself way too much. Every time she would add nutmeg "something to make them go hummmm", would drive me nuts. Throwing the salt for good luck is one thing, but you don't have to say it everytime!

I am guilty of saying "Yum-o" every now and again!
