I’m home from the book tour and already it feels like I never left. Swinging right back into home and work life–cooking is the thing I love in both places.

Last night, we made some Pork Chops and Grits from some ingredients I bought in Virginia. Tonight I’m cooking a gift given to me on the road.

In San Mateo, California–Anthony attended my class and handed me this box of homemade pasta–basil, tarragon fettuccine. He said it is the most celebrated dish in his family.

His suggestion for sauce is:
melted butter, a dash if lemon juice and grated Parmesan Cheese. This is my kind of recipe. If you’re in San Mateo, check out his business, Mangia Kai Pasta.

Once again, thanks to everyone who took their precious time to come and see me on the road. Now, I’m going to do my best to blog every day!!!


PS I will also try and figure out how to deal with my pictures, which is what always prevents me from posting!

    Please let us know if there will be new video or television content filmed. I don’t want to miss it. Love the old stuff, but need the new.

    Just wanted to say I love the new book and miss seeing you on television. I like the idea of brand new videos on here, where we can see new content. Haven’t seen Calder cook with you in a such long time. I’ve been following everything your previous guest John Contratti has been sharing on his blog, Lots of good recipes. Would love to see the two of you cook again. Love your mom’s photo that you posted recently.

    I watch many things on-line. So how about what everyone is suggesting?


  • Marianne May 24, 2013 at 6:26 am

    Hi MH:

    Have to say, I went on former guests John Contratti’s website.

    I made a simple dish with snap peas, carrots, sesame sticks, etc. It was one of the best and quickest vegetable dishes I ever made. He has the best recipes. I knew that when he cooked with Lucinda once before. If MH is ever going to return in any format, I hope he can cook again with LSQ . He has so many recipes that I would like to see prepared. I miss all the people of MH. Hallmark Channel has no clue what a terrific show it is,


  • Kevin May 24, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    I love to cook, so I would like to see new content.


  • Pat May 25, 2013 at 7:21 am

    Hi Lucinda,

    Hope all is good with your family. I know you were on “Monday’s With Marlo”. How about “Mad Hungry Mondays”??? On line videos with recipes that get us through the week??? Just a suggestion. Also, if you are filming new recipes, I, like so many others, would like to see John Contratti cooking some of the many terrific recipes from his blog. There’s so much great new material from him. Finally, will you be doing any other signing dates or is it complete? Happy Memorial Weekend.

    So miss new material from MH. I’m in full agreement with what everyone above is saying. It’s s overdue. MH has a big following. Let’s get things moving.


  • Diane May 26, 2013 at 7:17 am

    Now that the tour is over, I’ve been checking in every day to see what is going on with MH. I would love to see new video recipes on here.


  • Rose May 26, 2013 at 10:19 am

    Hi Lucinda,

    There should be plenty of possibilities for MH. There are so many of us who want new content from you and the team.


  • Linda Wallace May 26, 2013 at 7:47 pm


    How cool to see that John Contratti is making Top 10 Blog Lists.

    How wonderful that you introduced viewers to him. We can’t wait to see the two of you do a new recipe together again.


  • Clarice May 27, 2013 at 7:02 am

    Has LSQ and the MH team been on vacation. There are lots of questions here to be answered. 🙂


    More MH Please

  • Belinda May 27, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    Happy Memorial Day. I hope we can see some new video content with LSQ, Calder and the guests we enjoy so very much. We have waited way to long.


  • Teresa May 28, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    Can’t wait to here some good news about Mad Hungry.


  • Lorna May 28, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    I miss seeing new episodes of Mad Hungry. There has to be a way to show us new recipes being made.


  • Matt May 29, 2013 at 6:13 am

    Would love an update about the best show around.


  • Brian May 29, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    This post was over 2 weeks ago, what happened to blogging more often?


  • Irene May 30, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    I come on here every day, hoping to see people’s questions answered and get some news about MH. But nothing…. 🙁


  • Joyce May 31, 2013 at 6:33 am

    Like many people are saying, I did check out former guests John Contratti’s blog. He has some of the best recipes, especially some of the vegetable dishes. Would love to see Lucinda and him prepare some on line. Fans need new MH content.


  • Marion Womelsdorf May 31, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    Hi Lucinda,

    I miss your Mad Hungry TV show. Will you be returning to
    TV soon, I hope, as do many others.

  • Danielle May 31, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    We haven’t heard anything in weeks. Doesn’t anyone from the MH Team check in every day to see that people are asking questions and commenting??

  • Marilyn June 1, 2013 at 9:20 am

    Very disappointed to see so many weeks going buy and none of our questions are answered, commented on, etc. We were told the tour is over and there would be more responses on this blog.


    P.S. There still seems to be a very strong interest in the show. Which is a “good” thing.

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing
    the other person’s website link on your page at proper place and other person will also
    do same for you.
