While I think most of us could have done without a detailed explanation of what a potluck dinner actually is, this cookbook does have some great recipes as well asideas for different ways of organizing your party. Personally, I have three or four dishes that I bring to potlucks all the time, and while that's fine, I'm sure the people who go to the same dinners I do are getting tired of seeing them. This book many delicious- sounding recipes that I'm looking forward to trying, in all sort of categories - appetizers, drinks, desserts, main dishes.
For those complaining about the lack of linkage to referenced recipes within the text - your Kindle has a SEARCH function. It's not that difficult to use. Yes, I hope future editions will fix this minor flaw, but really? A one star rating because you can't manage to look up a recipe for roasted garlic? The book DOES have an active table of contents, for those who are worried about that.

This cookbook has a wealth of ideas on organizing and holding potlucks as well as 300 very practical recipes. They are organized into categories by course, and the entrees are broken down by main ingredient. For vegetarians, there are 20 entree recipes that are vegetarian. And it does include all of the courses, so whether you need to bring a salad, a side, or a dessert with your entree, you will find a recipe you can use.

Each recipe includes information that identifies it as a healthy recipe, or easy to make, or best of all, last minute.

When buying a Kindle recipe book, the organization and linking can be even more important than the recipes, and I want to mention that the Table of Contents does a spectacular job in this area. It has two layers, first you click on the category, then it provides a list of recipes within the category. Another click takes you to the recipe.

Very practical, and very easy to use.

Potluck at work has become a staple. It is affordable for all, allows creativity, and is very little work for each participant. As the organizer, I plan well balanced, easy to prepare food options for everyone to 'sign-up' for. Twice a year, I request all the ingredients and provide recipes for everyone, that they prepare. Teaching Assistive Daily Living is part of our jobs, so this lends nicely!

Between the celebratory seasonal 'house office lunches', monthly small group day-long meetings, and quarterly day-long trainings, I host many potlucks during the school year. The "Everything Potluck Cookbook" has expanded my thought processes on this venue. Potlucking with 12-25 people can become tedious and repititious. I have always preferred a structured approach, rather than "Let's see what everyone brings!"

I was looking for more ideas to stick with our themed potlucks, whether it is holiday related, seasonal related, or just doing a 'wrap' theme. I've been able to create new theme menus, and still provide options for those who don't cook, those who are vegan, those who have other dietary restrictions, and those who just enjoy food. The recipe selections allow me to create well balanced menus that all parties can contribute to and enjoy.

Potluck spreads begin at the morning break, flourish during lunch with great hot and cold entrees, and desert spreads into the afternoon break. Grazing at it's best.

Thank you for so many wonderful ideas; the volume charts are invaluable!

No more running to my computer for a quick dinner idea on the computer! No more writing down ingredient lists and directions! I downloaded it in seconds and was ready to start cooking. Tried several recipes so far and there's a ton more I want to go through. Love the book!

This cookbook has it all, just like a potluck (or cover dish) party would. The author takes you through the beginnings of pot luck's and even gives you many helpful tips on food safety (very important), a chart for serving size depending on the crowd and different types of pot luck parties you can host. The cookbook has many delicious recipes and even a little education on specific ingredients. I consider this to be one of my foremost reference cookbooks, potluck or just home cooking. Very well put together.

I am inspired to try some of the recipes in this book. The author makes frequent use of fresh garlic, which I love to incorporate into my cooking already. She mentions a few different types of cheeses, which I am not familiar with, but am willing to learn.

The Meatball Casserole looks yummy, along with many other hearty dishes. This is the first book I've downloaded onto my Kindle, so I'll need to figure out how to print what I want to make. Or maybe I can just set my Kindle up somewhere safe in the kitchen and go from there?

Potlucks can be a lot of fun, and a very practical and economical way to feed a crowd.
