There are few things better than gathering with friends over food on a lazy Saturday afternoon. And if said friends are food bloggers, you definitely know it’s going to be a good day. Time to wear your stretchy pants!
I am so happy that I had the lucky fortune of being able to attend a potluck with some of my favorite bloggers here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Let me tell you, there is something so inexplicably magical about connecting with like-minded individuals whom you’ve admired from afar and whose photography and recipe development skills you’ve gushed over many a time.
I have rounded up the recipes for you to draw inspiration from the next time you go to a potluck .. or really, are just in the mood to cook. Trust me when I say these do not disappoint – there’s something for everyone.
Golden Quinoa Roasted Veggie Salad with “Peanut” Ginger Dressing from Pilates Pipettes & PB
Chicken Taco Rings from Love You More Too
Grilled Peach Bruschetta from The Speckled Palate
Baked Parmesan Tomatoes from Zen & Spice
Lamb Meatballs with Eggplant Dip + Lamb Chops from Food Pleasure & Health
Lemon Curry Shrimp Bites from Common Canopy
Salad with Brazilian Vinaigrette from What’s the Oven On For
Southwestern Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Cups from The Ginger Marie Blog
Bonus: If you don’t have time to (or aren’t in the mood to) make something from scratch – fear not! Purchasing something is always an option; don’t be afraid to make it your own, either. This is exactly what Sweating with Stacy did by making homemade sauce for vegetarian meatballs from Trader Joe’s. Or some beverages, baked goodies, or a cheese board, perhaps? It’s hard to go wrong with options like these.
Happy cooking! x
