Chorizo-stuffed, Bacon-wrapped Dates

by

Spend one day in our office and you’re sure to hear a reference to “Cecily and her crazy caveman diet.” It’s true. For the past year (maybe even two now), I’ve been an off-and-on follower of the Paleo Diet. Without boring you with the details, Paleo is essentially a very “clean” diet of lean meats, […]

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. When we landed on an All-American theme for the SacFoodies potluck, I thought […]

Great-Grandmother Murphy’s Potato Salad

by

There are potato salads, and there are potato salads. This is, undoubtedly, the latter. It is italicized and underscored, highlighted and bolded. 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 […]

Quick and Easy Chicken Pot Pie

by

When challenged to come up with an All-American entrée for our recent Sac Foodies potluck, I must admit I was stumped. I thumbed through all my recipes two times over and finally stumbled upon a Chicken Pot Pie recipe I never made before. While I hesitated to make a dish I’d never made before for […]

Quick & Healthy Greek Potato Salad

by

I selected this non-traditional potato salad recipe for the SacFoodies potluck because it’s a healthy and delicious twist on a classic potato salad (and it also happens to be one of my favorite client recipes). It’s made with creamy non-fat Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise so you can have seconds with no guilt. Fellow SacFoodie […]

Mediterranean Summer Salad

by

I am always on the lookout for creative ways to eat veggies. Though our potluck theme this year was All-American, I decided to make a summer salad based on my time living in southern France. I figured hey, they gave us the Statue of Liberty, and what’s more American than that? I love this salad […]

Red, White, and Blue Trifle

by

During the past year I’ve experimented with making a couple trifles. My weakness for custard is what originally got me intrigued, and I’ve found that they are always a crowd pleaser! For our “All American” potluck I knew I couldn’t go with the traditional trifle, since, well… it’s not American!  But when I came across […]

Macaroni and Cheese

by

Potluck recipes- as promised! My approach to potlucks has changed over the years. Previously, I would use the party goers as my guinea pigs to try new recipes I found interesting. However, after many failed dishes, I’ve changed my strategy and have tried to hone in on a few signature dishes that work well in […]

Potluck Series: Nachos with all the fixin’s

by

Who can pass up a plate of nachos with all the toppings? Not me, and not the Sac Foodies either as I learned at our 3rd annual potluck event. This recipe is easy to make and I made sure not to skimp on any of the toppings. Here’s how I made my nachos, but of […]
