Potluck Survival Guide: Care & Feeding of the Athletic Supporter
By: Cherie Kimmons
Gift Guide Age Recommendation: 18+
I don’t have a child in sports, yet. With my son’s love of kicking and throwing balls, I am sure that is just around the corner. I am, however, a priest’s wife. I have lovingly endured 3 years of seminary and a few years assisting him in his ministry. I have endured and/or loved many potlucks. If every potluck organizer had this book at their disposal, I might have loved a few more than I endured!
This book would be a fabulous gift for any parent, grandparent or involved community member. Potluck Survival Guide is just that…. A guide. Kimmons walks you through how to set a menu, how to keep things kid-friendly, how to feed athletes (pre-game and post-game), how to set up a buffet, and how to calculate how much food you will need. As if that weren’t enough, there are enough recipes in here to give a lot of variety to your potluck dishes. I usually bring a smashed garlic potato dish to a potluck. As much as I love that dish, I am so excited by this cookbook that I am giving it a rest for the foreseeable future!
Potluck Survival Guide would not be worth much if the recipes didn’t hold up to the test. I am thrilled to say that the recipes are top-notch. I recently had company stay at our home. It was a few friends from seminary. I knew we would stay up late talking and I wanted a nice hearty dish on the table for breakfast. I also didn’t want to wake up ridiculously early to cook. Kimmons’ Overnight Breakfast Casserole was just what I was looking for. I prepped it the night before (it took 10 minutes) and baked it upon waking. 45 minutes later breakfast was served. My friends and my husband were raving about this dish!
