Recipes from Today’s Shows: Hungry Boys, My Son’s Cravings, a Kid-Friendly Menu, and Wonder Years Dinner

Published by

At 10AM TODAY: Hungry Boys. When the after school hunger pangs hit, I can’t count how many times I’ve heard, “I’m starving, and there’s nothing in the house to eat!” Nine times out of 10, I can prove that theory wrong with some simple pantry ingenuity.

Sauteed Asparagus
Crudites with Italian Vinaigrette

At 11AM TODAY: Kid-Friendly Menu. Getting kids involved in meal time is important but can also be fun. These fast and fun meals are a great way to get kids to eat- and help make- dinner and today, my nieces Callie and Bella are here today to help me out in the kitchen.

    I absolutely love your show. I noticed that as of Oct. 1 there are no more listings for your show or Martha Stewart. Are you going to be continuing on another network? I sure hope so as I watch you & Martha daily and am not interested in the other shows coming on TV.

    I look forward to your show everyday. I sincerely hope that yours and Martha Stewart’s shows will continue. I am retired and look forward to my cooking and baking lessons every day. It’s wonderful!

    I’ve been watching you and your recipes for some time 11-11:30 and have just learned of your new extended time! Sooooooo glad!!!!!!!! Now I can drool for two hours – great! Love your show and your boys. I have three grandsons with similar appetites who also cook. Best of luck on your new endeavors – looking forward to it.

    Loved the pan you used to stream the red quinoa on Thurs. show (repeat) Feb. 7th,
    2013. Can you tell me who makes it ?
    Thank you.

    On the current show airings, it is said that in order to get the recipes, go to site: Well, why can’t I get any of the recipes shown? I have been all over the site and cannot retrieve them. What gives? Especially interested in the wings that Calder invented (in college) but can’t seem to get that recipe either.

    Please help! Thank you.
