Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

wings and things....

Posted by

Yesterday we made my second favorite chicken wing recipe. The first is Crunchy Sesame Chicken wings from MH. This one is sweet and spicy and a little crispy--a little gooey. You'll see that recipe soon on MHTV. After we finished filming, Calder sat in the living room to scarf down a plate full of them. That is the peril of this show. I want to eat everything we cook, right after we cook it. You'd think I'd learn after all the years I've spent working in a test kitchen. Tasting and evaluating? Yes. Going for the second and third bite because its so dam good? Not so much. SO, this weekend I step up the exercise--no big gym routine, just an extra 30 minutes  speed walking with our strapping one-year old boy pup Steve.

Luca helped with the banana french toast before soccer practice today and said, "its totally time I learned to cook everything you know." That is always the moment I wait for from the kids--when they are open and willing to learn. I will be dipping into the homemade sausage from my 200 pound pig aquisition to make some sort of pasta  for dimer tonight along with a giant salad which I'm craving. And, a restful few days with the fam is all I need right now...AAhhh--the weekend.

    Hi Beverly,

    Here's the link for the chocolate cake:


  • I absolutely love your show on Hallmark. I've made some of your recipes and bought Mad Hungry book. I was wondering why only two of your boys have been on the show. Would love to see the other one participate also. You have a great family and the boys will have a hard time finding wives to cook like you. Good you taught them how.

  • Love your show. Thanks for the down to earth receipes and how to make meat cuts go farther.
    Wondering where your husband is? When will he appear on the show. I think that would be a plus too!

  • Hi Lucinda,
    I made the Sesame Chicken Wings and my husband thought they were wonderful. They were really good.
    I chopped the garlic, and forgot to put in the mix,so I place some on top of the wings. Turn out just fine.

    Thank you,
