Martha Stewart used her show Monday to clear the air about her recent comments regarding fellow chef Rachael Ray.
Martha Stewart: What Rachael Ray does is "not good enough for me"
"Just for the record, there are no bad feelings between us nor have there ever been," Stewart said apologetically. "I truly believe that Rachael has done a terrific job bringing people, many people who would of never of even stepped into the kitchen or made a dish to cook. I applaud Rachel for her enthusiastic approach to cooking."
Stewart recently told ABC's Nightline that what Ray does is "not good enough for me," noting that the 41-year-old Food Network personality and talk show host is more of an entertainer than a chef.

After Stewart's original comments, Ray had a chance to respond on ABC News as well. "I really just think she's being honest," Ray said. "She does have a better skill set than I do when it comes to producing a beautiful, perfect, high-quality meal. I'd rather eat Martha's [food] than mine, too."
At the close of The Martha Stewart Show, Stewart openly invited Ray to "come on back" to her show anytime.
