Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Recipes from Today’s Show: Calder’s Birthday

Posted by

TODAY on MHTV: It’s CQ’s birthday! We’re not having a big party but we are celebrating, so I’m turning to my pantry to help me prepare for this impromptu shindig. Clusters of tagliatelle noodles are nestled into cooked Arborio rice and buttery sautéed mushrooms for a side dish that works well with my orange caramelized pork roast. We like to call it “crack pork”—‘nuf said. And, it wouldn’t be a birthday party without a cake so I’m making CQ’s favorite: chocolate cake with whipped cream and berries. More from the show.

Get the recipes from this episode:

Orange Caramelized Pork Roast

Nesting Noodle Rice Pilaf

Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream and Berries

TV Update: There is no "Mad Hungry" episode airing weekdays on Mondays and in the 11:30 a.m. ET time slot due to a change in the Hallmark Channel programming block. Please continue to tune in Tuesdays through Fridays at 11 a.m. ET for more "Mad Hungry" TV.

  • MMMmmmm ... chocolate mix-in-the-pan cake? Must bake right now.

  • I love your show and try not to miss it; what happened to Mondays? I've tried many of the recipes you present on the show and look forward to trying the Caramelized Orange Pork Roast and the Nesting Noodles Rice Pilaf soon. Looked delish!

  • Happy Belated Birthday, Calder!

  • Just wanted to let you know that this episode inspired my dinner last night. I had just cleaned out a cabinet and found a bag of arborio (never thought to just make it as rice, not risotto), a half full box of anci di pepe,and a carton of beef stock. In the fridge there was a basket of mushrooms, double thick pork chops, and the honey mustard we always have in the house, from Oscar's Smoke House in Warrensburg, NY - it is the best! The pilaf was prepped like yours and was delicious. The chops went on the grill with a glaze of honey mustard mixed with strawberry jam (my brother-in-law makes big batches every year and this is how we use up what's left before the strawberries come in). Roasted beets rounded out the menu. Love your show and the recipes. Thanks.

  • The pork recipe is WONDERFUL!!! We had it tonight with egg noodles. For those that do not like spicy, you definitely need to cut back on the chili sauce. We loved it as is. I've made the cake before, single without the whipped cream and strawberries. It, too, is VERY good and easy to make. Keep up the great work!!!!

  • I made the nesting noodle pilaf the other night with regular rice (could not find Arborio). It was good, but next time I will know to cut the recipe in half. Loved the cremini mushrooms, I never bought that kind before. They had a rich, buttery flavor. One tip, if you are going to make this, make sure you have a very big pan! Your show is the best and we never miss it. Would love to have you back on Mondays and for a full hour all week long.

  • I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A CHOCOLATE CAKE RECEIPE ON YOUR MAD HUNGRY SHOW THAT YOU PUT INTO A TUBE PAN,THIE IS ACAKE MADE WITH SEMI-SWEET CHOCK, CHOCOLATE MARSELS AND FLOUR AND BUTTER.THE ICING IS MELTED CHOC I THINK WITH EITHER BRANDY OR SOMETHING ELSE. I PRINTED THIS RECEIPE PREVIOUSLY AND I CANNOT LOCATE THIE PLEEASE HELP ME!

  • fabulous and SO flavorful....making it for the second time today but using a no sodium added rice wine vinegar and a little less chili sauce....also making it in the crockpot :)

  • What a delicious looking cake! I love chocolate cake on its own but with the berries and cream that just looks amazing!

  • The sources are powerful. The superior of student/athlete is 2nd to no other year as the 12-1 file would point out. There will be many coaches waiting in line for this career this time about..
