Overview

Potlucks and picnics, dinner parties and church socials, fundraisers, toasts to the teacher, reunions, cookouts—it's the busy age of shared meals, which means with every invitation comes the question: " What can I bring?" Anne Byrn, an inspired cook, problem solver, and bestselling author of The Cake Mix Doctor cookbook and other books with over 2.6 million copies in print, knows exactly how to answer the question. Cutting through menu block—a condition familiar to everyone who cooks—here are over 200 delicious suggestions for crowd-pleasing food that’s designed to travel.

There are finger foods, canapes, and "trios"—Trio of Marinated Goat Cheese, Asian Summer Rolls with a Trio of Sauces, Trio of Pastry-Wrapped Camemberts. 25 surprising salads: White Corn Salad with Fresh Thyme, Asparagus and Grilled Peppers with Asian Soy Dressing. Main dishes for a party, from Southern-Style Pulled Pork to Creamy White Bean and Spinach Lasagne. Desserts (of course, 25 of them), and a full chapter of loaves and other gifts from the kitchen, including Chocolate Sour Cherry Bread and Sun-Cooked Peach Preserves. Each recipe comes with Tote Notes (how best to transport the dish), Big Batch (how to multiply the dish), and When You Arrive (how to put the finishing touches on the dish). Plus there are "Grab & Gos"—super-quick recipes—for each section, etiquette tips for working in someone else's kitchen, and a "Notes" area for each recipe, to jot down tips and log in when you made the dish and for what occasion, so you don't repeat yourself.

Editorial Reviews

"What can I bring?" has become an American mantra. With dinner parties, informal get-togethers, church socials, potlucks, and picnics, we have become a nation of shared meals. Of course, we all want to shine at these gatherings or at least not be remembered for recipe faux pas, but finding the perfect mix can become an all-day project. Cake Mix Doctor master Anne Byrn comes to the rescue with over 200 delicious, easy-to-prepare, easy-to-tote dishes to keep your friends happy and coming back for more. The treats include main courses, finger foods, canapés, salads, breads, preserves, and desserts.

What Can I Bring? Cookbook 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

The recipes in this book are, for the most part, easy and always delicious. They are designed to be easy to transport. Sidebars offer tips on storage, carrying and assembling. The dishes are imaginative and cover a huge variety of foods, everything from appetizers to main courses, from salads and side dishes to breads, from desserts to gift foods. I bought it on someone else's recommendation, then bought another as a gift for my daughter-in-law. It's become one of my favorite cook books.

This book is full of information for pot luck dinners, lunches, or whatebver -- anything you would take a covered dish to or furnish utensils for. It is not just another cookbook of nothing but recipes.
