“Whoopsie” Pies

by

This Halloween, the SacFoodies hosted a frighteningly delicious potluck. The witches and wizards broke out their cauldrons and brewed up some tasty treats – not tricks – for this special and spooky occasion. Unsure of what to make, I decided to find a classic recipe and add a spine-chilling spin. For the potluck I whipped […]

Green Bean Salad with Basil and Balsamic

by

This year the theme of our annual SacFoodies potluck was “America’s Farm to Fork Capital,” so we challenged ourselves to come up with creative dishes using local ingredients. I took the challenge to heart and based my dish on a recipe from Sacramento’s own Elise Bauer at Simply Recipes. I followed Elise’s recipe almost exactly, […]

Shrimp and Mango Salad

by

For our recent SacFoodies potluck, the group voted for a color category theme – yes, you guessed it, dishes selected by their dominant color, from red, orange, green, purple and brown (for good measure).  I took to the web for inspiration and found the perfect recipe for a light, no-cook, orange-colored Shrimp and Mango Salad, […]

One Pot Dinner

by

When I think of potlucks, the first thing that comes to mind is comfort food that can be easily prepared in advance and that will be appetizing to a variety of palates.  One of my favorite go-to recipes utilizes my favorite cooking technique (aka the “set it and forget it” crock pot).  It also satisfies […]

Chorizo-stuffed, Bacon-wrapped Dates

by

Pigs in a Blanket

by

Pigs in a Blanket, Franks in Jackets, Devils on Horsebacks, Biscuit Dogs – regardless of what you know them as, these crescent roll-covered sausages sure do hold their own among the grilled cheese sandwiches, potato salads and pot pies of the world.

Great-Grandmother Murphy’s Potato Salad

by

It’s the type of potato salad that would wear white to another potato salad’s wedding, knowing full well how awesome it is and blithely unconcerned with how insignificant other side dishes may feel […]
