Rachel Ray's Holiday Gift-Away offers reason to be thankful


In her second annual Mega Holiday Gift Away celeb cook-turned-entrepreneur Rachel Ray is increasing odds of winning by offering more presents, more time to enter and more chances to walk away with the Grand Prize. Featuring free gifts totaling $145,463, Ray's successful Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine is cranking up the heat this holiday season with daily "gift aways" from November 16 through January 27, 2010.

The Grand Prize allows two foodie fans to attend a taping of the Rachel Ray Show in New York City . However, if you don't wind up on set, the consolation prizes are pretty sweet too.

Black Friday's prize offers the chance to win $500 dollar American Express gift cards. On other dates in December, enter to win an HP mini notebook or desktop computer, golf clubs from Callaway, an Orbitz ski vacation, a culinary weekend for two at Hotel Viking in Newport, RI, a Jacuzzi hot tub or a week on a Norwegian Cruise Liner - to name a few.
