This recipe looks amazing!
Thanks so much, actually just thought of you earlier today, and then as if you read my mind, here you are 😉
Hi, just wanted to stop by and say ‘hi’. I was wondering if you may have a great potluck recipe. I’m searching for one for a potluck party in two weeks. Thanks ..
WOW, I am overwhelmed that you’re asking me. Yes I should have some, but what type of dish would you like to make. Once I know then I will be able to provide you with links on my blog.
You are the best. 🙂 The invitation said “we want real food no dips or veggie plates”. I recall from the last time, there is no kitchen and no electric for a crockpot. Last year I made a cake but I’m looking for something a little different that falls into the requested “real food ” category. Thanks so much
I made this one for a potluck not that long ago: Vegan, but very yummy
Another vegan dish made by my daughter in law:
This is also a favorite:
If you prefer to do a salad – this is a crowd pleaser:
I have also made this one, but just did not add my pic here on the blog – silly me forgot to take a pic:
The same applies to this one:
Let me know if you’re looking for something different.
Glad to be able to help <3
Thanks, the rice noodle salad sounds really good.
I must admit, when I made this one, it’s the first one to be devoured in no time. Hope you enjoy it as well as your guests. If you remember, please let me know how it turned out and what your guests have to say – Enjoy my friend, and thanks again for thinking of me
