All About

Potlucks

The original potluck referred to a meal cooked in one pot with whatever ingredients happened to be on hand -- the luck of the pot. Today, a potluck is a delicious communal, easy-on-the-host gathering of family and friends. Turn to our recipe arsenal of casseroles, salads, desserts, and more for a guaranteed potluck crowd-pleaser.

recipe

These individual desserts can be made in ovenproof ramekins, mugs, or cups. The recipe also works in a nine-inch round cake pan, although you will need to increase the baking time to 35 minutes. Bread that has sat out at room temperature for two days works best, but you can also use fresh bread that has been cubed and lightly toasted on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven.

recipe

Skip the green food coloring. We've raised the bar for Saint Patty's Day desserts. These blondies are enriched with Irish coffee-inspired flavors -- ground coffee in the batter, whiskey in the sugar glaze. And you don't have to pull out the heavy stand mixer: A bowl and a wooden spoon will do.
