    When printing a copy of your great recipes the print is IMPOSSIBLE to read. Why use the smallest print? I’m losing interest in trying to keep up. Lucinda, I do have your wonderful book, but the recipes on TV are disappointing.
    Help, please advise.
    A very loyal fan.

    I totally disagree with Ann. The recipes on Mad Hungry have been great recently. Now there are repeats on. We’ve seen them before. Before the repeats, there were great southern recipes from Virginia and the rollatini and side raddichio dish from John were terrific. Keep up the great work LSQ!!!!!!!!

    Attention: Sam Holland

    It looks like your the person to help me. I’ve had so many friends make the eggplant rollatini and vegetable side dish the teacher John made. Can you tell me the air date of that show so I can find the recipes. I’m not so computer savy and don’t know how to find them. Thanks for your help, Sam.

    P.S. LSQ your tv recipes are the best. I don’t know what viewer Ann is talking about.

    I made the banana cake the day I saw it on tv. I used a memo pad and I have the steps numbered all over the place with 5 in the middle lol The cake was great, as usual! I am making the flautas for lunch. It is always helpful getting recipes you can make fast with no fuss when your child is out of school. Thanks LSQ! Always a fan! (There isn’t a day that I don’t have your cookbook in my hand 😛 ) hmmmm Bananas looking a bit brown lol Banana cake today too lol

    I have to say, I respectfully disagree with Ann, regarding the tv recipes being a disappointment. I have dvr’d almost every single episode of MH, and I am never disappointed in what the show has to offer. Even my husband enjoys your show, and it is a constant source of inspiration for our daily meals. Regarding the tiny print – it is true…some of the recipes seem to print at a smaller font size than others. In this episode, The font used in the flautas recipe was larger than the Banana Cake. What I could recommend, is to bring up the recipe as if to print, but copy and paste just the text into your word processing document…then you can adjust the font size to your liking. HTH

    Did you know if that if you take the baking soda and sprinkle it over the bananas and let it sit, the bananas will break down and make it easier to mash with a fork?

    Aside: Good thing I lost my memo pad notes of the banana cake lol That had 5 steps, and the printout is so much easier to go by with only the 3 steps lol Flautas were great. miss lamie’s fried chicken (pg 117) tonight with banana cake for dessert.

    Can the recipes print out or be filed ?
    I’m missing something.
    All info appreciated

    The flautas are wonderful! I used salsa instead of tomatos and added cumin and chili powder. Also added cooked chorizo. But the best is that the leftover flautas made a WONDERFUL breakfast reheated with fried eggs on top. They were amazing! I reheated the flautas on low with a little olive oil in the pan I later used for the eggs then put the flautas on a cookie sheet on a low oven temp (about 275) to stay warm while I fried the eggs. Awesome!!!!
