    Scalloped Sweet Potatoes = A-M-A-Z-E! Guaranteed home run hit for holiday season dinners. LSQ, you are a star – Happy Holidays! xx

  • Paige December 15, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Finally, after a whole month, a new post. But no explanation or comments from LSQ.

    WHats going on with Mad Hungry? Steve

  • Tara December 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

    I would like to see more posts on this blog. It’s what I follow.


  • Paulette December 16, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Can we get some Mad Hungry news?


  • Ruth December 16, 2012 at 2:53 pm

    I made the recipe of the coconut bread X 4 today to use as holiday gifts. Of course, I gifted one loaf to myself. It is so GOOD!! Plus, it is so easy and quick to make. For anyone wanting to try the recipe, click on the Mad Hungry recipe index and look for it under desserts.

    I miss Mad Hungry. I miss the posts on this blog. I do have to thank Mad Hungry for introducing us to John Contratti. He as the coolest blog out there.

    I hope Mad Hungry returns and this guy is brought back. Happy Holidays.


  • Phyllis December 16, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    I miss Mad Hungry. We never hear from LSQ anymore. More blogging on here is needed. Alan, I agree, Mr. C.’s blog is wonderful. Always updated and very awesome photos. I see he was with Marlo Thomas a couple of weeks ago. I hope Mad Hungry will be back soon.


  • Chelsea December 17, 2012 at 5:03 am

    Yes, I would like to see more posts on here. It was almost a month since the last one.


  • Roger December 17, 2012 at 5:34 am


    If the show is coming back, if there is a cookbook coming, keep us interested. These few and far between posts are ridiculous.


  • Elaine December 18, 2012 at 6:04 am

    Need more posts on this blog. We need information. When will Mad Hungry be back?


  • RONA December 21, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    I don’t understand how this site has become so ignored lately.


  • Renata December 23, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Merry Christmas! It is sad that this blog is never updated and there are no comments from LSQ and MH.


  • celeste December 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

    Exactly, where is the attention for us bloggers who have supported Mad Hungry for years?


  • Pat December 26, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Not even a Merry Christmas on this blog. I will not buy any cookbook.


  • wendy December 28, 2012 at 7:47 am

    I will not buy the book either. Once a fan, no more.


  • JoAnn December 28, 2012 at 9:34 am

    I just went to Twitter for any MH news since it’s not being shared here. According to a tweet on 12/22, it looks like LSQ’s new cookbook, Mad Hungry Cravings will launch on QVC late February and will be in bookstores in March. The cover photo appears to be an identical photo from the first MH cookbook (grilled hanger steak with fries and creamed spinach on page 145). Are these just old recipes in a new book? Why is this blog (and your fans who have been with you from day one) being ignored? Why even have a blog? Not a good way to promote a new book and upcoming book tour.

  • Janiine December 30, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Hooray for JoAnn !!! You are 100 percent right. I will not buy that book. I don’t understand LSQ? Has she left this blog for someone else to update? Totally outrageous.


  • Frank December 31, 2012 at 11:40 am

    Happy New Year to LSQ and Mad Hungry.


  • Connie December 31, 2012 at 11:41 am

    We all don’t have Facebook or Twitter, so please don’t neglect your loyal followers.

    Happy 2013.


  • Vera December 31, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    In full agreement with Connie, this blog is what I turn to for all my recipes.


  • Jeff December 31, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    Happy New Year, Lucinda.


  • Janice January 2, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    What gives with the blog?


  • Margaret January 5, 2013 at 10:19 am

    So disappointed that I don’t see any updates or communication on here.
