Family gatherings, reunions with friends, and other parties fill the holidays with fun and memorable moments that are worth looking forward to every year.   Aside from these, the holidays also mean fun times in the kitchen.  Aside from eating, cooking food for sharing is a frequent activity during this season – it’s the potluck season.

There are a lot of popular potluck food ideas that you can prepare right in your own kitchen.  Depending on your culinary skills, you can go from simple refrigerator cakes to more complicated dishes like duck confit or croquembouche.   Whatever it is that you plan to prepare, make sure that you check with the party host or organizer to see what others are bringing so you can plan your contribution.

Some of the easy things that you can quickly whip up include Shepherd’s Pie, Pot Roast, Chili Bean Casserole, and whatever family dessert recipe you have mastered.  Whatever food item you choose, make sure that you won’t stress yourself out too much making the dish.  You want to have time to prepare yourself and look as presentable as the delicious potluck food you are bringing to the party.
