POT-LUCK SPECIALTY

What one food dish are you famous for taking to pot-luck dinners? At work they don't even ask me anymore. By the time the sign-up list gets to me, it already has "deviled eggs" by my name.

My own recipe Apple Cole Slaw. I was told I could not come to pot lucks at work unless I brought it.

I make mine with Best Foods Mayo and Beaver Brand sweet & spicy mustard. Than I cut up little green onions and a bit of fresh cilantro, some salt & pepper, and whip it until its like buttah and then put it back in the egg.

But I change things up most every time I make them.

Peach/mango salsa with lime corn chips is a hit every time!

I used to bring a Chinese rice w/pork casserole, too much work.

Sausage rolls. Wrapped in crescent roll pastry and baked until dark brown (brown sausage first). A church favorite for sure.

And....of course.....green bean cassorole.

I don't do lark either. Now it's forbidden.

My first wife loved the recipe for lark which begins, "Kill 96 larks."

I have many potluck recipes beyond the traditional lasagna, taco pie, meatballs and sausage balls in sauce to serve on Italian rolls, and a sour cream macaroni salad with mushrooms and olives John begs for. We have potlucks and a grill at the pub pretty often, I've picked up some new recipes in the past few years, some here on Sploofus. I've won big kudos for dear Vettage's Extreme Banana Bread, and holiday seasons will never pass again that I don't bake his bread and my own variations, and praise his name to all who yum. Terrific man and a loss to the community. I still miss him all the time, and I haven't given up on loving him back in.

Everyone who has it is mad for Jeannarie's black beans and green chillies with bacon and beef, topped with sour cream, grated cheese and chopped onion, with pita bread to scoop and dip..

Lodi's Ramen Chicken Salad is all the rage around town, spread like wildfire, seen in cheap dives and elegant homes, I can vouch for both and they have a few variations. I'm probably the closest to Lodi's original recipe; the beach yuppies have added their own twists - an awesome shrimp, crab and avocado version caused buzz at an artsy party. The director of a short film we made asked for the recipe and that's what he brought to wrap party. Fingers squeegeed the last traces from the bow.

We have one coming up Sunday. I will bring my usual. Potato chips, hot dog buns, beer, and I'll pick up about 4# potao salad on the way. I won't be able to keep up this pace much longer.

I make a cold vegetable mix, with a secret dressing (Kens Steak House Red Wine) that is always a hit. You just got to love when something simple goes over big!

Funny thing about that chicken salad - this summer I made two huge bowls of it. The four of us had one for dinner, and I saved the other for lunches, snacks, etc. The next morning, I got up and the entire 2nd bowl was empty. The kids had stayed up late and eaten the rest.

When I asked Connor why, he shrugged and said, "It was good."

Have just started making Curried Chicken Salad a lot. I made up the recipe from whatever was already in my kitchen one day, and it's been a big hit.

I cook boneless chicken breast and use my clean hands to sort of shred it. Then I stir it up with Hellman's Light Mayonnaise, salt, white pepper and curry (should have a light yellow color to it). Next I stir in tiny diced celery, shredded coconut, raisins, chopped green onions, crumbled bacon and cashews. Then just stir like crazy until it's all mixed up. Delicious by itself or as a spread for French bread.

Now I'm hungry.

Spinach artichoke dip was a fave, my kids try to make it, not as good. My mac n cheese is always requested at holidays, along with my cornbread and sausage stuffing. Love all the recipes we should start a forum for them. I might pm some people to get specific recipes. Love the curried chicken salad recipe. My chicken salad recipe is with grapes and pecans. I have a new potato salad recipe. Baked pot salad, baked pot, sour cream, real mayo, cream cheese w/chives, g onion, bac bits, and shredded cheese, dash of garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Taste just like loaded baked potato!

When I go to Chinese functions with my wife, I have a couple things that are highly requested...not bad for a non-Asian trained cook.

My Chinese New Years Cake (Nian Gao) is always a hit. So is my Lemon Chicken and Hot & Sour Soup.

Does anyone feel a need to collect these into a single Sploofus Potluck Specialties file? I will do it, if there is enough positive response.

Everyone send me their recipe, I will work it into a file I can either post or email.

Felix, I cheat, I get it at Costco, it's fresh and chilled. I can't imagine doing it better myself, it is delish. The brand name is Santa Barbara and it's sold in nearly every state. Can't order online of course, but here's a map if you're interested in pursing.

That's an excellent idea if folks don't mind sharing. My recipes are on my home computer and I'm at work. Will send them when I get home. My wife makes an apple 'pie' using apples, crescent rolls, Mountain Dew (or Slice, or Ale-8 One...) that everyone in my office had to have the recipe for.

I had a grilled Reuben for lunch 30 minutes ago, and you guys have me salivating again.

That sounds great Tuzilla. My daughter just made a cake with the frosting in the cake, delicious. I will post my recipes. We can have a pot luck exchange. It would be great always looking for good recipes. Also we have a great recipe for monkey bread using canned biscuits in a bundt pan, also delicious.

My specialty is broccoli casserole. We don't get very many veggies at our potlucks so I keep making this casserole, and it's mighty tasty if I do say so myself!

So for her, the cake doesn't have to be all that great.

Eating that cake might tell you more than you really want to know about your brother.

I, too, had been wondering what ever happened to that cookbook. I sent her several recipes myself.
