What’s In My Bag: Rachael Ray

How good is this?! Rachael Ray, 46, pours out her purse for Us.

This chef’s Ziplocs aren’t just for her signature sammies. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a real makeup bag,” admits the host of the syndicated Rachael Ray show and ­founder of the ­#9MillionMeals campaign. “I just steal my husband’s ChapStick and carry Visine and Aleve in a plastic baggie. But I do love Dior lip gloss!” What else does Ray, wed to lawyer John Cusimano, 47, have ­cooking in her Cambria tote?

Go Big or Go Home

“My Il Bisonte wallet is very big! I keep all my receipts in there. Plus, it can fit my passport, so I use it while I travel too.”

Throwing SHADES

“Right now, I have Dita sunglasses with me. I go through about 12 pairs a year because somehow I always lose the glasses — but never the cases!”

Seasonal Sounds 

“My husband and I are ’80s kids and love mixtapes. So for all the holidays, he makes me a fantastic playlist. I listen to them on my iPhone, which I just got.”

Play it Safe

“I make sure to have Band-Aids. But usually when I hurt myself cooking, it’s too serious for them to help.”

Food for Thought 

“I write down every single recipe idea in Decomposition Books, which are made out of recycled paper. I have every recipe from the past 20 years!”
