Rachael Ray dished on what's next for her.

“I'm always game for anything, and I'm a person who's over 50 years old. I'm trying to still remain relevant, which is an honor,” the cook, 55, said in an interview with People. “It's cool to be over 50 and get new opportunities that keep getting thrown at me."

The star said she's thrilled to be getting opportunities in her 50s.

One of those opportunities includes being a part of her production company, Free Food Studios, which just formed a partnership with A&E Networks. Going forward, there will be new "in the kitchen" content over the next few years.

“I'm not really good with downtime. I love to work. I love it. I love to have my brain very active, and if I'm not writing shows, I'm drawing ‘foodles’ I call them — recipes on paper — and writing books and things,” the TV personality explained. “I don't like being idle. I've never been good at it.”

“I really am bad at doing nothing!” she quipped.

Rachael Ray hosted her TV show for a long time.

Since the brunette beauty, who is married to John Cusimano, has trouble getting some shut-eye, her day starts as early as 3 in the morning.

“I can't sleep. I wake up at three or four in the morning, and I just start working because I can't stop thinking about it,” she revealed. “I'm not very good at sleep. I never have been. Even when I was a little girl. My nickname was Little Hoot because I was a night owl.”

The TV personality said she is bad at doing nothing.

However, her husband will gladly take some time in bed. “He loves to sleep. Unfortunately, once I get up and turn all the lights on and start typing and turn the coffee on, he's forced to get up pretty early, too,” she joked. “He's usually up between five and six…The other morning he said, ‘You realize it's three o'clock in the morning, right?’”

Now that Ray isn't hosting her talk show, The Rachael Ray Show, she's thrilled to be working with A&E and how she can reach other people.

“At heart I think I'm a waitress, whether I'm serving furniture or a pot or a pan or a plate of food. I want to give people something clever and useful and accessible. I like people to feel included,” she sid.

“People will see more of what they came to enjoy about my work during the pandemic when John and I were working alone for more than two years. I think that folks like that, really feeling like they're at the kitchen counter with you or in your home with you,” she added of the upcoming content. “That's the vibe I want people to have with my work in Italy.”

“We're going to be working on so many different things," she concluded. "I have to set a higher bar, so I want to rise to the occasion and just make sure every day I do my absolute best."
