Review: Potluck Survival Guide

We just finished up football season, and are headed into soccer in a few weeks, so I was very interested in the opportunity to review Potluck Survival Guide: Care and feeding of the athletic supporter by Cherie Kimmons(I received a free copy of the book, thanks to the publisher and the MamaBuzz review program.)

I loved this book!  It was written in a fun, lighthearted manner but it was also chock full of easy, delicious and filling recipes!

The book came about because the author wanted to provide a resource for families out there who need a quick, easy, satisfying meal to potluck events.  She includes information about meals that are great for athletes both pre- and post- game.  She also provides tips on how to choose meals to entice even picky eaters.

While there is a wealth of information in this book, the recipes make it shine. She has included a little bit of everything -- from appetizers to breakfast foods to entrees to side dishes to soups to desserts.   And, even though she included a little bit of everything -- she never skimped on recipes!  There are tons! While there aren't any color photographs of the dishes, there are tons of wonderful illustrations that made reading fun.

It's hard for me to choose a favorite recipe, but I think I'm going to make her oatmeal casserole for our Christmas breakfast this year. It's full of fruits and oatmeal, and takes about an hour to bake.  The perfect amount of time for the kids to open their stockings and gifts!

The book is published by Five Star Publications, and more information can be found at www.PotLuckSurvivalGuide.com.  You can also purchase Potluck Survival Guide: Care and Feeding of the Athletic Supporter from Amazon.
