There are 120 recipes here and a section on potluck 101- food safety, packing tips, reheating and serving, how to be a good potluck guest and tips for a successful potluck. The recipes included starters, with the ever popular Cowboy caviar included, brunch, salads and slaw, hot sides, casseroles, game day, slow cooker section with a luscious Guinness beef stew and sweet and sour ribs, and desserts - do not miss making Apple slab pie and Texas sheet cake - different but such good old fashioned comfort food that most have forgotten.
The index is very detailed with ingredients, names of dishes and even some equipment. There are also conversion charts for volume, weight, baking ingredients and oven temperatures.
These recipes will impress those that you carry them out to or just as well cook them for wonderful satisfying meals for your family and company. It's really the best pot luck book I've seen and used.
This is a spiral bound book that opens flat for easy viewing in the kitchen. It's divided into sections featuring: Starters; Brunch; Salads; Sides; Casseroles; Game Day (or slop the hogs as we call it in my family); Slow Cooker; Centerpieces and Dessert. I never review a cookbook without first testing some of the offerings. I can attest to the America's Test Kitchen's fool proof method for hard boiling eggs without the peeling angst that sometimes comes after. I have used their simple but perfect Classic Deviled Egg recipe with great results. I've also used their method to make the classic Hawaiian Macaroni Salad which is smoother than what my mom made. They've remade the Green Bean Casserole and it's a giant step forward when weighed against the 1955 version. The King Ranch Casserole is my favorite "Toss the diet to the devil day" treat.
If I have any complaint it's that there are not enough photos of the food. There's quite a lot but I personally like to see everything before I commit to cooking. All in all, I really think this is an excellent cook book and would recommend it to all.
