Hosted by Mrs D
Group active since Thu, Feb 02, 2012

This group is to share any type of recipe that you would take to a potluck. Main dishes, sides, desserts ~ all are welcome. Do you have recipes that feed a crowd? Please share them! Potlucks are a tradition that many groups and churches are trying to keep alive. So let's do our part and share our favorite potluck recipes with each other.

Over the years I try to make dinner as easy as possible.
One day a lady shared with me she does not boil her cheese ravioli.
She puts a layer of favorite sauce in pan.
Then layers ravioli/sauce/ravioli and top with favorite meat options.
Then cover with sauce so no ravioli is showing.
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella over top and back at 350 for 1 hour.
The ravioli is so moist and tender it will melt in your mouth.

Hope you try and hope you like.

Hello to new friends and good food.

My name is Leila Rockwell and I love potluck dinners. I have a few recipes I would like to share but will take me awhile to upload them as have a new computer and still working with it. I'm anxious to try a lot of your potluck recipes.

Freezer Recipes

Hey gang, my husband is buying me a freezer so I can make some cook ahead and freeze meals. Can any of you send me links to your favorite cook ahead meals? I would so appreciate it more than you know. Thank you in advance. .. Gail. .

Potluck foods.

I go to Bunco once a month (it's at lunch) time) and a Red Hat meeting (also at lunch). I have run out of ideas of things to bring and I think the others are too. We're just getting odds and ends of things and nothing that says you've eaten a meal.

My thoughts on potlucks

When I was growing up my daddy was a preacher so we attended many a potluck dinner on Sunday afternoons. The ladies preparing the food were small town cooks and they knew what they were doing and they took potluck cooking very seriously. I'm proud to say that that same mindset was drilled into me and now I'm never more in my element than when cooking for a church potluck. I always remember the rules my mother taught me about potluck cooking. 1) Too much is always better than not enough and 2) Always prepare and take enough food to feed your whole family plus two more people. If everyone does that, then you know there will always be enough food to feed the crowd.

So it is with this love of cooking for potlucks I created this group. Happy cooking everyone!!
