Potluck recipes: Use That Thing!

You know what I mean; that ingredient you purchased two months ago intending to use for that recipe you'd seen.  It's sitting there looking at you every time you open the pantry. In December, potluck cooks didn't go shopping to cook for potluck.  They used that thing!

Spiced Pumpkin Cornbread (Mandy)
Mandy had bought all the ingredients for this moist, yummy cornbread for the November cornbread, then changed her mind. Thus, she had all the ingredients at the ready.
"I doubled the recipe because it only called for 1 cup of pumpkin, and a can of pumpkin contains about 1 3/4 cups." - Mandy

Buttermilk "Fried" Chicken (Katie)
Yes, that buttermilk made all the difference.

Beer Bread and dip (Jen)

Smoked Motzarella and Tomato blend from Wildtree and the Beer Bread recipe from the MOMS Club cookbook!

Lemon Curd Bars (Alison)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds toasted

  5. Bake 5 to 8 min until top is golden.  Spread lemon curd over hot crust within 1/2 inch of edges.
  6. In a bowl mix coconut, almonds and reserved crumb mixture.  Sprinkle over lemon curd.
  7. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until top is golden and edges brown.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  Using edges of foil, lift uncut bars from pan.  Cut into 32 bars.
