Easy Recipes for Elegant Entertaining

I was cooking for years before I realized that the gourmet food made in fancy restaurants is often easier and less time consuming than home cooking. The recipes I posted are simple in that there is minimal 'hands on' work and the techniques, even for the novice cook, can be easily learned. In a few, cooking time is longer, but most of the prep work can be done ahead. The dishes are elegant in that they make a simply beautiful presentation that will impress your guests. I included suggestions for planning a menu and how to serve the meal in a special setting. I hope you will discover a few new recipes and ideas for your next elegant dinner party.

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. There are also some suggestions on how to plan a potluck event. In addition to my own recipes, I posted quite a few shared family recipes for potlucks submitted by visitors to the site. I hope you will try a few and enjoy!
