Portions of this site were updated on 17 September 2014.

Anyone who likes to cook will tell you that part of the fun of cooking is sharing good recipes. At Teri's Kitchen, you will find hundreds of tried-and-true recipes from my family and personal collections, plus several hundred shared recipes from contributors. In addition, there are menus for every day and special occasions, cooking tips, links and much more. I will post additions and revisions to the site on this page as they occur throughout the month. To browse the kitchen, visit the Recipe Files page or, for specific recipes or information, use the Search Boxes throughout the site. I hope you will enjoy what I have to offer.

Potluck Recipes

I love a potluck or covered dish gathering, whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. There is always a wide variety of foods from which to choose and I usually find something new and interesting. For this page, I have listed some of my favorite personal recipes that travel well, some of which are not typically found on a potluck buffet, others that are my versions of common dishes. Many are quick and easy, others take a bit more time to prepare, most of which is hands-off cooking. In addition to my own recipes, I posted quite a few shared family recipes for potluck foods submitted by visitors to the site. I hope you will try a few and enjoy!

Shared Family Recipes from Visitors

Teri' was created to share my personal recipes and those of my Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Almost immediately after it was posted on the Internet, visitors to the site starting sending me their favorite recipes. It did not take long before there were so many that I decided to design a page to post and share those contributions. At last count, there were 325 shared recipes, including appetizers, main dishes of all types, side dishes, desserts, even beverages, some contemporary, others from old family collections of many different ethnicities. I hope you will visit the page, try some of the recipes and, perhaps, be inspired to share some of your own.
