my most often requested dishes for pot luck are crock pot pulled pork, meatballs and sausages in tomato sauce, manhattan clam chowder, or turkey or chicken sausages and peppers.

i can give a recipe for any of these, or point to their oosting if you're interested.

the easiest is the crock pot pulled pork, and there's never any left.

This time of year, I'd take a big platter of washed fresh strawberries ready to be dipped into a bowl of whipped cream cheese mixed with an equal amount of marshmallow cream, that can be found in a jar at the grocery. The combo is perfect and not too sweet. The platter looks impressive and couldn't be easier.

mmm, that sounds great, k-l. the cheese must cut the sweetness if the marshmallow and give it body.

i'm going to try that soon. strawberry season will be upon us here in the mid-atlantic shortly, due to a cool but dry spring.

My favs are Loaded potatoes casserole and my jello salad
Loaded Potatoes casserole (make double cause they go fast !)
2 (16oz) containers sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 (3oz) bags real bacon bits (not bacos )
2 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large (28 - 30oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes - shredded kind
Combine first 4 ingredients, mix in hash browns.
Spread into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 400 for 45-60 minutes.

Jello Salad

1 large container of small curd cottage cheese (even people that don't love this salad)
1 large container of cool whip
1 lg pkg jello ( I mostly use strawberry or orange)
mix them together then add
1 lg can of chunk pineapple drained well
1 -2 lag cans of mandarin oranges well drained.
refrigerate several hours to set.
I like more fruit so I add 2 of each but you decide.
I put pineapple rings with a cherry in the middle and mandarin slices on top to garnish.

a hint on salads taking to keep cool
before making your salad take a bowl that the bowl your are going to make your salad in will fit in. put water in the bottom one place the salad bowl in it and freeze it. after frozen take the salad bowl out make your salad and when ready to go to your function take your bowl of ice with you and then set your salad bowl in it and it will still stay cold.

Decadent.
The sugar really balances out the balsamic vinegar.
