You might have seen me on the TODAY show this morning, I was on demoing my January Mad Hungry column in Martha Stewart Living Magazine where I focused on updating the TV dinner (many times my kids dig into food while on the computer so I've been calling them the "PC" dinner). I showed how to make a homemade Salisbury Steak with Onion gravy, Potato and Carrot Mash, Creamed Spinach and Apple-Cherry Cobbler that can be put in one container, frozen and reheated as needed- Click above for a gallery of behind the scenes photos or check out the segment here.

  • Very nice post, Lucinda. Thanks for the link to your Today Show segment. I missed it and enjoyed watching it. Love the behind the scenes photos.

  • Hi Lucinda, How great it was to see you on the Today Show yesterday! You did a fantastic job and your food looked so delicious! Love seeing you on the Hallmark Channel, also! You are a great chef with a great family! Hope to see you on Today Show again! Jan

  • I enjoyed Lucinda Scala Quinn on the Today
    Show. She is my favorite cook on TV.

    Thank you

  • Hi Lucinda, Was so sorry I did not get a chance to see you on the Today program. Your pictures were great, and I enjoyed them. You are my favorite cook, and I get so many wonderful ideas from you. I watch you everyday on Hallmark station. Here's hoping you will not be taken off the air.

  • Our son, a college student, was pleased to return to school with the six delicious frozen dinners in tow. Thank you for the great recipes and the method to get it all together. Now I am hoping for a new permutation, perhaps with a chicken entree???
