How to Find a Recipe For a Potluck

By Mike Jones

So, you've received an invitation to attend a potluck, but what are you going to make? Whatever you make, it better be good...and this is when the pressure begins. You recall that you've made something delicious in the past that everybody loved and wish you could remember what it was. You are in luck because with the internet, there are now hundreds of recipe/cooking websites that will help you with your potluck dish and millions of recipes to choose from.

Here are the steps to help you find a recipe on the internet:

Step 1: Find out what kind of potluck party you will be attending and what the theme of the party and dishes are. For example, if it's a hawaiian theme, you would choose a hawaiian dish. If it's a barbecue theme, you would select a barbecue dish. You get the idea. Easy enough, right? Once you determine the type of potluck party you will be attending, you can log on to the internet to search for the perfect recipe to bring to the potluck.

Step 2: Your internet search begins now. If you're looking for a hawaiian dish and you want to bring a salad, you could search "hawaiian salad recipe" in google. Your search will return 884,000 results. Surely, you can find a dish from these results to take to your potluck. Let's say you choose the wonderful dish "Hawaiian Macaroni Salad", which happens to be one of my favorites to bring to a potluck. Trust me that everybody loves this dish. Simply, click on the link to the recipe and check it out. You can even do another google search for hawaiian macaroni salad, which will return 144,000 recipes, all for hawaiian macaroni salad.

The secret is to find a recipe and recipe site that looks good. There are a lot of recipe sites that do not have good recipes. Here are some recipe sites you can trust (and most of these recipes will have reviews so you know which are good and which are bad): All Recipes, Food Network, Recipezaar and Simple Recipes.

Once you find the recipe, you can pretty much figure out the rest of what you have to do...just make the recipe. Be sure to return to the recipe and rate it in order to help others that may be in the same situation you are in.
