Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Mad Hungry Fourth of July

Posted by

No matter what my plans are for the Fourth of July, I always make sure they involve some of my favorite summer recipes. For me, the best way to relax and celebrate is with good food, family, and friends. If you’re looking for some inspiration for this Thursday, here are some recipes made for warm summer afternoons. It doesn't matter if you're grilling, on the road, or picnicking, we've got you covered with menus that aim to please.

If for nothing else, try our All-American Icebox cake, an upgrade on those old-school flag cakes that can be made ahead.

  • Lets hope there just as many posts on here as there are on Facebook.


  • Happy 4th of July to you and your family, Lucinda.


  • MH Team,

    Reading your comments, from the June 25 post, lets hope MH does the right thing when new videos are shot that John Contratti is back cooking something new with Lucinda. Mad Hungry fans are big fans of his and we've been asking for a very long time.


  • Love the cake !! Angie

  • Just saw the Pride Day photos. Very cool !!


  • Glad to see the blog is getting more attention. Remember this is where it all started.


  • MH Team,

    I agree with Jennifer. Mr. Contratti has also been making Top 10 Food Blogs of 2013.

    He should have been brought back to Mad Hungry a very long time ago,


  • Hi Lucinda,

    Thank you for all the 4th of July ideas.


  • Lucinda,

    Where's the red dress from in those photos?


  • What's a good drink for the 4th of July?


  • Were you in NYC in those photos? When can we expect new video recipes?

  • Love the 4th of July suggestions. Terrific comments on Eric's link to the Top 10 Food Blogs of 2013. Very obvious that Mr. Contratti's fans are Mad Hungry fans too,

  • Glad you love Chicago style hot dogs...not biased that I am from Chicago
