As a chef, Rachael Ray has had a lot of cravings over the years. But a craving for motherhood? Not so much. "Between my charity and my staff members' kids and dogs – who come to work with them – I get all the fulfillment I need," she told PEOPLE at the Amstel Light Burger Bash in Miami on Thursday.

In town to host the event, part of the Food Network's South Beach Wine & Food Festival, Ray counted off her impressive list of responsibilities: "I do 280 episodes of TV a year, write 15 recipes for [Every Day with Rachael Ray], and publish an annual book." So how does she unwind? With her faithful pup, of course! "With all of that, my husband and I try to get one weekend a month with Isaboo at our home in the Adirondacks to relax and recharge."
