Mad for Bananas
Enjoy a trio of recipes made with one of Lucinda’s favorite foods: bananas. Straight from the frying pan, banana fritters are drizzled with honey for a breakfast so good, you’ll think you skipped right to dessert. An old-fashioned baked banana custard is smooth, creamy, and tastes like heaven, while a banana milkshake flavored with vanilla, sugar, and ice cream is a perfect sweet treat to tide you over until dinner.

New Orleans Menu
Hang on for a New Orleans-inspired dinner that will make you feel like you’re in the Big Easy. Start with a three-spice jalapeno-infused Bloody Mary that packs a bit of heat.

Then, a healthy version of fried chicken that’s made in the oven and delicious served at room temperature or piping hot, and a chilled sweet potato salad with a tangy orange vinaigrette for a quick side that can be made in advance.
