A Potluck Party! You’re Invited!

August 18, 2012

We’re throwing a (virtual) Potluck Party at The Muddy Kitchen!

You’re all invited!

Take your boots off before your come in here!

Feature your recipe!

Feature your blog!

Who’s setting the table?

I’ll be making the fried zucchini blossoms, a few loaves of the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, Kachumber Cocktails for everyone who wants one and some Caldo Verde soup (I’ll give you guys the recipe when you get here!). Kelli’s bringing her famous broccoli salad and maybe we can convince Keith to smoke up some chicken and ribs.

Kelli’s making her famous broccoli salad. What’s your famous dish?

Anyone know a recipe for barbecue sauce?

It doesn’t have to be fancy. In fact, it’s better if it’s not. It can be the dish you’re famous for or something as simple as the ice tea or the brownie mix brownies with a few extra chips thrown in.

So who all wants to (virtually) drop by?

Submit your recipe!

Submit your blog!

Submit your photo!

By August 24th, (yes, 2012) send me the recipe for the dish you’ll be ‘bringing’ and it will be featured on the The Muddy Kitchen Potluck Party Post. You can email it to me (jennifer@jennifersolow.com) or put it in as one of the Comments below. Please send a photo of the dish if you have one, or a link to the photo on your blog/twitter/pininterest etc. I would love a picture of you and/or your family and/or your neighbors to add to the post.

If you have a blog, you’re welcome to include a sentence or two about it to share with everyone else along with your URL.

Or if you don’t have a blog, you can join in The Muddy Kitchen Potluck Party Post anyway!

So your email or comment should look something like this:




YOUR BLOG URL (If you have one)

ONE OR TWO PHOTOS (Send as a link or a jpg file)

I can’t wait to see you at The Muddy Kitchen Potluck Party!

Second helpings?

What a brilliant idea! I will definitely “drop in”. As soon as I figure out what to bring… 🙂


A Table in the Sun

I’d love to join in on the potluck. My name is Teresa from A Table in the Sun. I’m bringing Summer Dressed Kale and Nectarine Salad.
Summer Dressed Kale and Nectarine Salad

1 leek, diced
2 tomatoes, cut into small to medium chunks
2 nectarines or peaches, cut into small or medium chunks
1 1/2 cups kale, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped basil
crumbled goat cheese (feta would work too)
toasted pepitas (or any nut you like)
This salad is best dressed ahead of time in order to blend the flavors. Mix first five ingredients. Reserve cheese and nuts for topping when serving. (I like to toast my pepitas in an iron skillet with a bit of honey.)

Creamy Lemon Dressing

1/4 cup plain kefir or yogurt
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4tsp. – 1/2 tsp. stevia powder (or honey to taste)
salt and pepper
Pour dressing over salad. Top with goat cheese and roasted nuts at time of serving.




I am so contributing….just not quite yet, this is going to take a little research….

Well, get your act together this week, sista! Party’s coming up! Nothing fancy. Wear your Sloggers. Bring something simple. xx


Amy Roth

Amy’s BBQ sauce
from my soon to be completed family cookbook, entitled “The Queen Also Cooks”.


1 large onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 C Jack Daniel’s
2 C ketchup
1/3 C vinegar*
1/4 C worcestershire
1/2 C brown sugar
3/4 C molasses
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 T salt
1/4 C tomato paste
2-3 T liquid smoke
1/3 tsp Tabasco, to taste

Combine onion, garlic, and whiskey in a 3 quart saucepan. Sauté until translucent, approx. 10 minutes. Remove from heat and light, flame for 20 seconds. Add rest of ingredients, bring to boil, then simmer 20 minutes stirring constantly. Cool and store for 1 day before using. Keeps very well.

*Cider or red wine vinegar are both appropriate. Don’t use balsamic.



Great idea! I think I’ll bring my soba noodle salad! link here: http://guavabelly.wordpress.com/2012/08/14/scrumptious-soba-salad/
