You are right Dissie, this forum will be a great place to showcase recipes and ideas! Potlucks are great for family gatherings big and small, church suppers,sporting events, Sunday morning brunch, anytime! I often make my own little 'potluck' meals for weekend company.Dissie wrote:I love the idea of this forum!

Hi foxysanana Sounds like every gathering at your house could be considered a family reunion! Have always maintained the test of a good recipe is bringing the dish, platter or bowl home empty along with the recipe requests. Living in 'Potluck Country' I find I cannot have too many crowd pleasing make and takes, so please stop in and post those recipes.foxysnana wrote:I come from a large family, (nearly 50 when we are all together, uncles, aunts, cousins, inlaws & outlaws) even more if it is a family reunion, or church dinner. Every holiday meal, everything is always potluck, I will have to watch here for ideas, and post a few as well
I'm hoping my eye issues settle down so I can get to camera work - in the meanwhile hoping everyone will include any photos they have along with the recipes.
Great to see you drop by to say hello, you are going to love it here! Have made many of your wonderful recipes these past number of years, know you share my love of planing and preparing for family reunions, the gathering of family and friends along with church and community potlucks. Looking forward to your participation sharing your suggestions, recipes and photos.Dot wrote:Just wanted to stop by and say" Hi Gerry". I almost feel at home already.

Any ideas? we have microwaves at work so will be able to heat it up...I was thinking just to cook a small turkey breast but am concerned it will be dry. Appreciate any input...
I used to work as a caterer, and this was our take on doing turkey. Bake as normal, slice at home. Pour some warm broth over the turkey, not too much, but a little moisture. You do not want the turkey to float, but you want it to retain moisture. This way it can be warmed if needed. Another option would be to use a slow cooker on warm to keep the turkey warm. If you use this option, you may not have nice slices of turkey, but the turkey will be hot, just use a bit of broth to keep the moisture in it.
