Just in time for the summer picnic and potluck season, Potluck Favorites from the editors of Good Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living has arrived. This book-magazine hybrid features 126 recipes for church suppers, reunions, and outdoor parties, but are easily adaptable for dinner at home.
Potluck Favorites is divided into three main categories. Bring-a-Dish Classics features traditional potluck favorites, many with a new twist, including pasta, chili and salads. Recipes include a Red and Green Lasagna, with both tomato and bechamel sauces, Baked Pasta e Fagioli instead of the traditional soup, Double Pea and Feta Cheese salad, and many more.
Backyard Fun includes great grilling ideas and side dishes for a summer barbecue. The traditional burger is remade into Gingered Burgers with Lime Slaw, while IndoChine burgers include Thai basil, chili sauce and peanut butter for an Asian fusion flavor. Grilling ideas also highlight kebab combinations such as Indian Turkey Kebabs, Jambalya Sausage kebabs and more, as well as pizzas right on the barbecue.
