“Mad Hungry Cravings” to be Published March 19, 2013!

9781579654382

Yay! “Mad Hungry” from MSLO Executive Food Editor Lucinda Scala Quinn is one of my fave books–it’s gorgeous and the recipes are quite accessible. “Mad Hungry” was/is one of my favorite cooking shows as well. Lucinda oozes love for her family and her cooking is all about bringing family back to the table. Not a bad thing, right (depending on your family)? Now, LSQ has announced her follow-up book, “Mad Hungry Cravings”. FOMs: Knowing Lucinda Scala Quinn, we’ll all be craving these recipes in no time!

Note: Remember, when possible, to buy books from your local independent book seller. If you love books, support those smaller businesses who struggle to compete in a competitive print media market. It may cost more, but it keeps their doors open for you!

Preorder “Mad Hungry Cravings” online at Powell’s.

From The Good Cook website:

It’s fun to get take-out, nobody’s saying you can never do it again. But we could all probably eat less of these more likely than not salt-and-fat-enriched dishes. Next time the craving for Pork Fried Rice or Sicilian-Style Deep-Dish Pizza hits, don’t reach for the phone, reach for Mad Hungry Cravings instead! Lucinda Scala Quinn makes it tastier, healthier and more affordable to enjoy restaurant-style fare with 173 recipes for the kinds of American, Asian, Latin and Mediterranean dishes typically found on a take-out menu. Love classic diner food? You’re covered with breakfast, blue plate specials (such as Chicken-Fried Steak with Sweet Potatoes and Collard Greens with Ham & Bacon on the side) and dessert. Color photos.

Martha stopped by NBC’s TODAY show and sprinted through several recipes from the new vegetarian cookbook, “Meatless”, published earlier this week. The cookbook looks like a nice healthy way to start the new year. FOMs: Have any of you purchased the new cookbook yet and tried any of the recipes? What do you think?

Good news: Below are links to recipes from the TODAY show segment!

Happy New Book! “Meatless” to be Published on January 8!

Did your New Year’s resolutions involve a healthier diet? Well, here comes Martha to help with that! Over 200 easy meat-free recipes to get your new year started on the right foot. As a recent convert to the concept of “Meatless Mondays”, I can’t wait to check out the book’s sections that include: Stovetop Suppers; Soups, Stews, and Chili; and Substantial Salads. If you can, please consider purchasing the book from your local independent bookstore. (We must support them or they will disappear.) If you prefer to order online, consider ordering from Powell’s, an online independent book seller. FOMs: Let’s cook recipes from the book and share photos, shall we?

From the description on Powell’s Books:

As inspiring as it is practical, Meatless features 200 recipes—each accompanied by a gorgeous photograph—for full-fledged vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. You’ll find recipes for classics and new favorites, plus plenty of low-fat, vegan, and gluten-free options, too.

More than just a cookbook, Meatless is also a roadmap to embracing a vegetable-based lifestyle. Here are dozens of versatile recipes that can be easily adapted, such as pizza with a variety of toppings, salads made from different whole grains, and pestos with unexpected flavors and ingredients. You’ll also find advice on stocking your pantry with vegetarian essentials (dried beans, pasta, herbs and spices), a collection of basic recipes and techniques (vegetable stock, tomato sauce, polenta), and make-ahead flavor-boosters (caramelized onions, roasted peppers, and quick pickles).

It’s a Wrap: Martha Stewart’s Cooking School has completed taping!

Martha has completed taping her new show for PBS, “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School”. To celebrate, she hosted all involved at a Moroccan feast, or “bisteeya”, at her Bedford home. You can see many photos of the feast, as well as its preparation, on Martha’s blog. In the photo above, from Martha’s blog, Martha, appropriately attired for the evening’s theme, is leading partygoers on a rainy day tour of her farm. What do you think, FOMs: Will you be watching and learning from Martha this fall? I can’t wait!

BTW: If you absolutely can’t wait to learn step-by-step cooking techniques from Martha, you may want to check out the enhanced edition of Martha’s 2008 book, “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School”, (coauthored by Everyday Food Editor, Sarah Carey) available now on iTunes. NOTE: You will need an iOS device–an iPhone, or iPad, or iPod Touch–to view these. Here are the available lessons, in order:

Lesson One: Stocks & Soups
Lesson Two: Eggs
Lesson Three: Meat, Fish & Poultry
Lesson Four: Vegetables
Lesson Five: Pasta, Dried Beans & Grains
Lesson Six: Desserts

The PBS show will be different than these enhanced editions, but these should hold you FOMs over until fall. Enjoy!

From Martha’s blog:

As I mentioned, last Friday evening I hosted a dinner party for thirty guests. We recently finished taping Martha Stewart’s Cooking School, which will be airing on PBS this coming autumn and I’m so excited! This dinner was for people who worked on that show’s production, both from PBS and MSLO.
