Check out these potluck pointers for the holiday season.

If you're heading to someone else's house for a holiday meal,you'll likely bring along food. Here are strategies to ensure thefood arrives at the host's home looking good and tastingterrific.

1. Read the recipe thoroughly to identify the best way toprepare a dish to go. For example, if a dish needs to broil duringthe last five minutes to melt a cheese topping, save that step todo at the host's house. If it's a new recipe, it's also a good ideato practice preparing the dish before the party.

Eating healthy should still be delicious.

2. Dishes that can be served at room temperature are idealcandidates. That way, your dish doesn't take up oven orrefrigerator space at the host's home.

3. Soups and stews are crowd-pleasers, and you can tote themin a slow-cooker-just plug it in when you arrive. There's anadvantage for the host, too: no need to warm your dish in themicrowave or on the stove.

4. If a dish requires an oven, refrigerator, or freezer, letthe host know ahead of time. You may want to drop off the dishearlier in the day so the host doesn't have to juggle to make spacefor it during the party.

5. Use disposable bake-and-serve containers with lids forcasseroles and sheet cakes. Tote a frosted layer cake in aninexpensive cake saver that you can leave behind. Or choose arecipe that's easy to take along, such as the SmokedSalmon Knishes, which you can pop into a zip-top plastic bag.The host doesn't have to worry about cleaning and returning dishesto you.

6. Make a gift of a serving dish and utensils. For example,bring the Cauliflowerand Green Onion Mash or Honey-GlazedCarrots in a pretty (but inexpensive) bowl with a servingspoon, and leave the bowl and spoon as a gift for the host.

7. For dishes with several elements, package the different components separately. For example,pack salad greens and croutons in separate plastic bags, and storethe dressing in a jar; toss everything together when you're readyto serve.

These Last-Minute Party Snacks Will Make Your Friends Think You're a Damn Chef

There's nothing quite like the glorious feeling of absolute control that comes with hosting a party. You choose the guest list, pick the playlist (we don't talk about the smelectric shlide here), and serve party snacks you actually want to eat. Even if you're putting together a shindig that's over Zoom with 10+ heads attending, you still gotta put in the work! You want it to seem as

Sacrificing time spent on your snacks does not equal sacrificing flavor. Your guests will verify this fact once they see all your

. The baked brie bites might scream "these took 87 hours to make," but in reality, you just threw a few ingredients together to create a delicious treat.

Another pro tip: Everyone assumes deviled eggs are fancy AF, but they don't know that you really just mixed a few spices with some hard-boiled egg yolks and popped it in a sliced egg.

So instead of freaking out, spend more time curating your lewk and that party playlist. Then, you can prep these last-minute treats with a handful of ingredients in the hour or so before your party kicks off. (Whether it be virtual or at home with your fam-bam).

Don't Skip It, Pack It: 6 Ways to Take Your Breakfast on the Go

From homemade gravlax to indulgent huevos rancheros, The Kitchen's Rise and Shine episode was all about breakfast this morning, and while it's often called the most-important meal of the day, for better or worse, some days simply don't allow for a long, leisurely morning meal. But that doesn't mean you have to forgo breakfast altogether the key is to look to ready-to-go dishes that are both quick to prepare and easy to pack. Read on below for wake-up-worthy inspiration from Alton Brown, The Pioneer Woman and more of your favorite chefs.

Ree Drummond keeps it classic in her Breakfast of Champions Sandwich, built on buttery English muffins and griddled with thinly sliced ham, gooey just-melted cheese and an egg. "Immediately wrap them in a foil bag to lock in the heat," Ree advises of packing up these sandwiches for on-the-go eating.

While leftover delivery pizza is often best eaten for breakfast the next day, there's a fresher option for pizza in the morning: English-Muffin Breakfast Pizza from Food Network Magazine. This single-serving recipe boasts an English muffin in place of a traditional crust, plus tomato and Canadian bacon toppings, and a blanket of mozzarella for added richness.

If you'd prefer to drink your breakfast instead, check out this Peach Pie Smoothie, a surprisingly healthy, hands-off recipe that's ready in a hurry. Let the blender do the work of whirling together the yogurt, a squeeze of honey, frozen peaches and fragrant spices for a smooth, refreshing smoothie.

Breakfast in five minutes? Yes, please. It all comes down to layering in Tyler Florence's Yogurt-Berry Parfait, boasting a base of tangy yogurt, plus heaping handfuls of your favorite fruits and crunchy granola for welcome texture.

The beauty of Alton Brown's Blueberry Muffins is that they'll keep well in an airtight container for two to three days. Make a batch of these moist muffins on a Sunday, then grab a muffin on the way out the door on a hectic weekday morning.

Wrapped up tight with traditional burrito fixings like cool avocado, creamy cheddar cheese and Food Network Kitchen's homemade Pico de Gallo, these Breakfast Burritos get the morning treatment with a hearty filling of fluffy scrambled eggs and crispy hash browns. "All of the elements are snugly wrapped in a tortilla, keeping everything warmer longer when you're taking it to go," the chefs of Food Network Kitchen say.

15 Recipes to Take to Someone in Need (GF)

Show you care by making new parents, those recovering from surgery, or someone who needs a boost any of these 15 gluten-free recipes to take to someone in need.

This post may contain affiliate links.

From welcoming new babies, to undergoing surgeries – it feels like I’ve been making and taking meals to friends and family in need more than ever lately!

Maybe it’s all in my head, but I rarely feel like I have the right words to comfort someone when they’re going through a difficult or sorrowful time. My heart aches, but my brain can’t quite form the right words to help ease the pain. It’s through food that I’m able to show how much I care, and I think (hope!) people see that.

That said, meal ideas for people who are stuck on the couch after surgery, going through a tough time, or whose family is growing, is one of my most requested post topics and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to write on the subject because I definitely have a group of recipes I turn to time and time again when these types of situations pop up!

The 15 recipes to take to someone in need that I’m highlighting today all travel well, are easy to assemble by either you or the recipient, and are hearty and comforting yet healthy (for the most part!) I always try and deliver meals with a side dish or something to compliment the meal, so I’ve included a few ideas under each link, too.

Just a tip – be sure to ask the recipient about any food allergies or aversions before deciding what recipe to take over, and definitely don’t forget to print out the recipe so they can see exactly what’s in it and how to make/bake it if applicable.

Finally, if you want to organize a meal train for a friend or family member, I highly recommend this Meal Train service. I was introduced to it last year after a friend gave birth to twin boys who were in the NICU for several weeks, and it is sooo slick!

What are your favorite meals to deliver to friends and family members in need?

10 Gluten-Free Recipes to Make When You Are Sick

Cheesy Vegetable, Turkey Sausage and Rice Casserole

Since this Cheesy Vegetable, Turkey Sausage and Rice Casserole isn’t baked, I’d deliver it hot then if the recipient wants to eat it right way – great! If not, they can reheat individual servings in the microwave. Totally yummy either way.

5 Ingredient Pizza Pasta Bake

Pizza Pasta Bake combines the taste of pizza with the comfort of casserole – ie be prepared to achieve superhero status when you deliver this dish to someone’s front door. Have them bake per the recipe’s instructions, and they’ll be set.

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

There are very few dishes as comforting as cheesy enchiladas – especially when you’ve gone the extra mile to make the enchilada sauce from scratch (don’t worry – it takes less than 10 minutes to make with 100% fridge and pantry staples.) Cover and deliver unbaked, then have your friend bake and eat when hungry.

Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

Place all the ingredients for Crock Pot White Chicken Chili in a Ziplock bag (mix the flour and milk together in either another small ziplock bag or small gladware container.) All the recipient will have to do is dump the entire thing into the crock pot and push on. Super easy and definitely not too spicy. Hearty and comforting too!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is my go-to recipe for taking to someone who is sick. I’m telling you, it does wonders for the body and soul. Deliver hot or cold – doesn’t matter, as it reheats perfectly.

Shortcut Vegetable Ragu

While Chicken Noodle Soup is a sick person’s salvation, Shortcut Vegetable Ragu is what I take to new parents or anyone who needs a super nourishing meal. What can I say, a big plate of noodles topped with hearty sauce is like receiving a big hug. I usually double the recipe and deliver half the batch in a Gladware container, then scoop the other half into a Ziplock bag for them to stick in the freezer for later.

Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice Casserole

Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice Casserole is another no-bake casserole – just top with cheese, broil, and eat – so either deliver hot or have them reheat in the microwave. This casserole has zest and zip, but isn’t spicy so it’s great for kids.

Taco Chili (Crock Pot Friendly)

The recipe for Taco Chili makes a TON of food, so the recipient will get to enjoy it for a few days – it’s the meal that keeps on giving. This would be another great recipe to double so they have a freezer batch on hand. Don’t forget to include toppings like tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and chopped green onions with your delivery.

Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is hearty, healthy, and could NOT be easier. Deliver the soup already cooked or throw ALL the ingredients into a Ziplock bag and have the recipient cook in their crock pot. So good and easy!

15 Minute Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps

Since Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps only take 15 minutes to cook, you could deliver all the ingredients pre-measured then have your friend or family member cook when they’re ready to eat, or just deliver the beef already cooked with cold lettuce wraps. Either way, this meal totally hits the spot.

Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers

Take it from me, Sausage and Peppers is one of the BEST meals to receive. The recipe is based on my Aunt Mary’s famous sausage and peppers, which she’d send home with us every time we visited her in Ohio growing up. Since the peppers and sausages need to be seared before placing into the crock pot, I’d deliver this dish hot and ready.

BBQ Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This is another dish that lends itself well to being delivered as a meal kit. Package sweet potatoes (either uncooked or already roasted,) alongside a container of shredded BBQ chicken, and all the fixin’s. Let the recipient assemble when and how they wish.

Senegalese Soup

I realize almost all of these recipe ideas so far contain meat, so if you want to help out a vegetarian or vegan friend, Senegalese Soup is JUST the ticket. Heck, I’d really consider making it for anyone who could use a fresh yet filling meal. This soup is one of my favorites.

Breakfast Taco Casserole

Let’s not forget about breakfast! Breakfast Taco Casserole reheats SUPER well. I’d take completely baked for someone to eat hot, or let them know it’s just fine (and actually tastes even better) reheated in the microwave.

Gluten-Free Homestyle Chicken and Noodles

I saved the most comforting for last! Google “ultimate comfort food” and my Gluten-Free Homestyle Chicken and Noodles are definitely making the cut. Although this recipe calls for rolling homemade gluten-free egg noodles, the process isn’t hard nor does it take a long time. The recipient will feel every ounce of love you put into this dish when it’s delivered piping hot and ready to eat!

Veggie Crudites with Light Dip The Roquefort cheese in this light dip will make you forget you’ve used light cream ingredients.

Pool Party Hits – Bite-sized items best served right off the grill (or out of the fryer), for when you are hosting or can cook on the spot.

Grilled Artichokes with Bacon and Rosemary Dip Make this delicious bacon-rosemary dip in advance, chill it, and serve with grilled artichokes halves and lemon, so refreshing – and tasty.

Chicken Satay with Peanut Butter BBQ Sauce Marinate the chicken ahead of time in peanut butter barbeque sauce, enhance the remaining marinade with extra peanut butter, and savor these grilled skewers.

Southern Fried Oysters Welcome a Savannah favorite into your life: freshly shucked oysters battered with hot sauce, breaded, fried, and served with a mixture of Paula’s Vidalia Onion Peach Grilling Marinade and sour cream. Yum!

Fried Green Tomatoes with Vidalia Onion Relish For another Savannah (and Southern) favorite, whip up this zesty dip of diced Vidalia onions and brown sugar a few hours ahead, and serve with fried green tomatoes.

Jalapeño Bottle Caps with Blue Cheese Dip These beer-battered poppers and zesty blue cheese dip will keep any spice-lover coming back for more.

Take and Bake – No-fuss snacks to bring to someone’s house to throw in the oven when convenient.

Italian Chicken Sticks Coat chicken with melted butter and seasoned breadcrumbs, bake them off, and serve them with marinara or honey mustard sauce for a low-maintenance snack to please everyone.

13 Essential Ina Garten Recipes Everyone Should Master

We&rsquore taking our cooking lessons from the Barefoot Contessa.

From cooking tips to love advice, we𠆝 trust Ina Garten with pretty much anything. She’s taught us how to master a perfect roast chicken, revealed the secret to a satisfying salad, and recommended wallet-friendly kitchen tools that we can’t live without. We’ve collected 13 of our all-time favorite Ina Garten recipes to pay homage to the Barefoot Contessa.

Generations of fans love the Barefoot Contessa’s recipes for their confident simplicity and focus on flavor. Ina Garten never gets too fussy with food trends or adds unnecessary ingredients—in fact, most of her recipes use staples that you probably have in your house at all times. Garten is known for her ability to whip up comforting, well-executed meals that’ll have you coming back for seconds and thirds.

Like many Southern hostesses, Garten has mastered the art of entertaining. From weeknight dinners to elegant desserts, the Barefoot Contessa’s signature dishes can easily go from your weeknight dinner table to a sophisticated dinner party spread. No matter what you’re cooking, Garten wants you to have fun in the kitchen. Once you master these essential recipes from Ina Garten, you’ll be making them over and over again.

Make sure you have a good bottle of olive oil, homemade vinaigrette, and some quality bittersweet chocolate. You’re in for a treat with these classic recipes from the Barefoot Contessa.

Perfect Roast Chicken

It takes some serious chops to call a roast chicken “perfect,” but when the recipe comes from Ina Garten, we don’t doubt that title one bit. This recipe (which can be found here) is one of our favorites. While you’re at it, pick up some extra roasting chickens to make Garten’s homemade stock, or try out her OTHER go-to chicken recipe.

Weeknight Bolognese

On those nights when you just don’t have the energy or enthusiasm to whip up an elaborate meal, Ina Garten’s Weeknight Bolognese is here for you. Her recipe calls for ground sirloin, but Garten notes that you can substitute any ground meat or even use mushrooms to make a vegetarian version. You’ll certainly be adding this Weeknight Bolognese to your repertoire.

Easy Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese Croutons

Take it back to basics with this family-favorite dish. Who knew that homemade tomato soup could be so simple? Grilled cheese croutons add a touch of whimsy to this satisfying lunch. Find Garten’s recipe on Barefoot Contessa.


For as long as we can remember, meatloaf has been a dinnertime staple in our households. Treat your family to Garten’s take on the dish, which fans can’t stop raving about (get the recipe on Food Network).

Mac and Cheese

This is not your average mac and cheese. Fresh tomatoes, Gruyere cheese, and a hint of nutmeg take Ina Garten’s version of the classic dish to the next level. Find her recipe here.

Chicken Marbella

In this (and many other of her) recipes, Garten calls for “good olive oil.” Her brand of choice? Olio Santo extra-virgin olive oil, which she’s been using for at least 20 years, as reported by Bon Appétit. Find the recipe for Garten’s Chicken Marbella here.

Egg Salad Tartines

Impress the brunch or luncheon crowd with these oh-so-elegant, incredibly easy egg salad tartines. You can serve them as the main meal or slice them into crostini to make an appetizer fit for a high tea spread. Get Garten’s 7-ingredient recipe here, and be sure to serve it with her Tomato & Avocado Salad.

Parmesan Chive Smashed Potatoes

Talk about a real treat. Mini potatoes get the gourmet treatment with simple ingredients that deliver big flavor. They’re twice-roasted, then topped with fresh Parmesan, chives, and sea salt to make a beautiful side. Find the recipe here, or for a Southern picnic, make Garten&aposs Potato Salad.

Chicken Piccata

Searching for a new way to reinvent boneless, skinless chicken breasts? Garten’s got one. The silky lemon butter sauce that adorns the Barefoot Contessa’s Chicken Piccata will have you licking your plate clean.

Irish Soda Bread

If you want to bake your own bread but don’t have any yeast, this recipe is perfect for you. It gets a big dose of flavor from dried currants and orange zest, and a splash of buttermilk keeps it moist throughout baking. This simple bread is sure to become one of your favorites.

Beatty&rsquos Chocolate Cake

Garten’s favorite show-stopping dessert? A layered chocolate cake, spiked with freshly-brewed coffee for depth and swirled with rich chocolate frosting. Get Garten’s recipe or try our version of a Southern Buttermilk Chocolate Cake.

Lemon Bars

This classic Garten recipe is a fan-favorite for a reason. With a homemade shortbread crust and a luscious lemon filling, these bars can be sliced into small triangles to encourage portion control. Find the recipe here, or try out some of our best-loved bars.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

When you want a true nostalgic bake, Ina Garten’s PB&J Bars tick all the boxes. They start with a base of peanut butter dough, then a layer of the jam of your choice, and it’s all topped with peanuts and a streusel-like crumble made from spare dough. The final effect is that of a classic PB&J sandwich in dessert form.

Bonus Recipe: Cosmopolitans

Ina Garten’s recipe for a giant cosmopolitan recently went viral, and we can see why. Pour into 6 chilled martini glasses or do as Garten does and sip out of one giant glass. Either way, be sure to use good vodka, like Grey Goose, in this happy hour treat.

Shrimp and Fresh Pesto Pasta

The Spruce Eats / Elaine Lemm

Pesto with shrimp and pasta is a surprisingly quick dish to make, and the sauce doesn't come out of a jar! With this recipe, you'll make the pesto from scratch using fresh basil, pine nuts, and two types of cheese. The shrimp and cherry tomatoes and the tagliatelle or spaghetti noodles are cooked simultaneously. In no time, you'll have a delicious spring or summer meal on the table.

This is not Amish at all that I know of. My mother was Amish and then she married a Mennonite So I coming from this kind of background we didn't have this in our communities.

you o not have to cook the pasta,just add a little water or sauce I never cooked my pasta so it is really e z. Stop

This is an interesting concept but I think a little tweaking may bring it to life. If you were to toast the spaghetti and add some chunky tomatoes to the sauce, it will not only change the texture of the pasta but also give it more depth in flavor. Making it this way will actually compliment the peas for those who aren't a fan. A reference to a Mexican tradition. Fideo, which is delicious!

I tend to agree with Seth below that this seems a bit on the bland side. Fine if your family doesn't like spicier food, but I'm definitely not that way. I'd use V-8 in place of regular tomato juice, though I'd probably opt for a good tomato sauce like Ragu or Prego instead. Some garlic would be an essential addition, and I'm not that enamored of peas, so I might substitute something else in its place.

I would definitely add some onions to it as well and maybe corn. It might need some Italian seasoning too.

Even though I am loving cooking easy dishes are always good when there is little time. I felt the ingredients seemed a little bland so also used a tin of tomatoes, some garlic and some olive oil. We enjoyed it and will probably make it again sometime when we need something quick and relatively simple.

There is absolutely no way this can be called a dump go recipe since the ground beef the pasta have to be cooked. You people are pathetic.

Sharing Your Own Images

You! Anyone who is a registered and logged in user.

Please share images that will help other visitors. For example:

  • Images that highlight a article's features ("Here are the controls on this music player", "See the clasp for this necklace", "Look at the box this came in")
  • Images showing someone using a product ("Here I am wearing this scarf", "Install the ink cartridge here")
  • Images related to a topic ("My dog Skipper", "A great outfit", "Our family at Yellowstone", "How to glue a chair using a cabinet clamp")
  • Images that show how a product performs ("I took this picture with this camera", "This shirt shrunk in the wash", "The saw blade after 100 cuts")
  • Images that give a sense of the size of the product ("This refrigerator is actually 6' tall", "A cellphone the size of a credit card")

Do include captions for your images. While not required, they provide context for your images. Additionally, you can use the Image Notes feature to highlight one or more interesting areas in your image. Everyone will see your notes when they roll over your image.

What shouldn't I share?

Behave as if you were a guest at a friend's dinner party: please treat the Prime Publishing community with respect. Do not share:

  • Profane, obscene, or spiteful images, or any images with nudity
  • Images to which you do not own the intellectual property rights
  • Images featuring phone numbers, mail addresses, or URLs. You can watermark an image with copyright information.
  • Images featuring availability, price, or alternative ordering/shipping information
  • Images featuring external Web sites, contests, or other solicitations
  • Any personal information about children under 13
  • Images with automobile license plates that are prominent and easily read (pictures with license plates that have been fuzzed out or that otherwise cannot be read are acceptable).

The same guidelines apply to your captions and notes.

What image formats and sizes are supported?

We support JPEG, GIF and PNG images. Files must be no more than 1MB. Both the image height and the image width must be between 60 and 3500 pixels.

Instead of uploading an image, can I just enter a link to an image?

No, all images must be uploaded to Prime Publishing. This ensures your image is always available.

How long does it take to upload an image?

The time varies depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the image file. For a 400KB image, for example, you should expect 2 to 4 minutes over a 56KB modem and under 1 minute for DSL or cable modem.

Where will my image appear?

Generally your image will appear where you uploaded it: in the article image gallery.

Who owns the images I upload?

The rights owner of the image continues to own the image uploading your image to Prime Publishing does not transfer ownership.
