I love potlucks!

There’s nothing better than coming together with friends and family to share food and fun times.  Taking a little bit of every dish to try and then going back for seconds on your favorites.  I also love the exchange of recipes that ultimately arises from a potluck.  Many of my favorite recipes were gifts from others.   And there is nothing more flattering than when I’ve made a dish that others want to make and share at their next potluck.

Here on my site, you will find a collection of recipes that have been in my recipe book for years, as well as recipes that were shared by my friends, family, and readers.  As much as possible, we will try to identify the original source of the recipe.  However, many of these recipes have been passed around for so many years that no one knows their true origin.

My hope is that this will become your source for inspiring, delicious potluck recipes and that you might want to share your favorite recipes here too!

    Since I’m not from the US, I didn’t actually find out what pot lucks were until late last year! I do know now and I assume there will be food involved so I am plenty excited!

  4. What a neat idea for a blog! I stumbled upon it because I just tagged a post with #potluck. Your recipes look hearty and comfort-food lovable. If you’re interested, my post was about a potluck party and the wonderful lentil soup some of the guests made. http://glovergardens.com/2016/02/21/pot-luck-perfect-in-the-moment-lentil-soup/
