  • Amazing Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Muffins recipe & tips for hosting a pot luck party

    Not only do I love to entertain, but some of my friends also share my passion. As a group of entertaining enthusiasts who all love to cook, sometimes we just want to contribute in some way. Generally when I host I’ll prepare everything including an appetizer, salad, entree, sides & dessert, but it’s also fun to host a themed gathering where everyone brings their favorite dish – aka a potluck! Years of dry dishes & office parties may have given the name a negative connotation, but I think it’s time to revisit the concept in a fresh way!

    All too often we feel we have to have an excuse to entertain. I think we should make more excuses to entertain! Hosting a potluck is a great way to keep it simple where you can relax & enjoy your guests.

    I enjoy hosting dinners with a theme – chili night, taco bar, you name it. Selecting a theme helps keep a potluck dinner cohesive so the flavors blend well together.

    Who doesn’t love a little competition? Have guests compete for the best dish! Let guests know the theme & give them a general idea of what to bring, i.e.: appetizer, side, or dessert on the invitation. As the hostess, I always provide the entree.
