Mamacaronia Salad

Mamacaronia Salad from OhMyPotluck.com

Mamacaronia Salad from OhMyPotluck.comWhen you need a quick and classic potluck dish, this is it. Macaroni salad can be made in under 20 minutes, but still feels genuine and homemade. Not to mention, people have been bringing pasta salads to potlucks for who knows how long.

You can also make a lot of macaroni salad on a shoestring budget. Pasta is very affordable, which is probably why it makes such a great dish for a crowd. I’d…

In The Navy! Bean Dip | Oh My Potluck.comDoes anyone else find it funny that the navy bean isn’t navy at all? I mean, it’s not a deep, rich shade of blue is it? It’s kind of like how guinea pigs aren’t pigs and seahorses aren’t horses (I could go on all day).

I went to the zoo today and a mother was quite surprised to find out that what she thought were gophers were actually dogs. Well… no. Prairie dogs aren’t dogs, or gophers. In The Navy! Bean Dip

Bana-na Na-na Boo-boo Bars

banana-oat-barsI hadn’t made these bars in a very long time. They use Splenda (easily replaced with white sugar), which I pretty much stopped using a few years ago in favour of using natural sugars, and less of them. But, when I wanted a low-sugar recipe, I instantly remembered this gem from the Splenda cookbook. They’re a nice, healthy snack, and are always really popular when I take them to parties, whether I…

Seriously had this song stuck in my head since Saturday - “Every Morning” by Sugar Ray

The Chicken Toss

The Chicken Toss from OhMyPotluck.com

The Chicken Toss from OhMyPotluck.comHere’s a fun summer recipe! The chicken part is easy to throw on a grill, although I follow the skillet method in the instructions. I love the smells of grilling. A neighbor of mine uses his barbeque every night, making the outdoors smell so summery as the scents from his barbeque mix with the blooming trees and fresh air. Sometimes there’s even the smell of mosquito repellent, but that’s not so…

René Descartes. Principia Philosophiae. 1644.

According to French philosopher René Descartes,  the universe operated as a continuously running machine which God had set in motion. Since he rejected Newton’s theory of gravity and idea of a vacuum in space, Descartes argued that instead the universe was composed of a subtle matter he named ‘plenum’, which swirled in vortices like whirlpools and actually moved the planets by contact. Here, these vortices carry the planets around the Sun. 

Just invented the s’ more cone. Take a sugar cone. Put a broken up square of Hershey Extra Dark chocolate in the bottom. Stuff a marshmallow on top. Put on another one or two squares of chocolate and finish with another marshmallow.  Put in oven broiler for a few minutes and SNAP. Instant campfire.

Rock the Boatmeal Cookies

It’s time to Rock the Boatmeal with these yummy gluten-free Cookies

oatmeal cookiesI’m experimenting a bit more with gluten-free these days. I know a few people with intolerances now, and like many people with allergies and food restrictions, potlucks are their worst enemy. Not that one potluck guest can change their experience, but I can try.

I should mention that if you’re not worried about gluten, substitute the quinoa flour for ¾ cups all-purpose flour and ¾ cups quinoa…

fusilli pasta

fusilli pastaMy passion for pasta has significantly picked up in the past year or so. First, my BFF loves pasta. Second, I’ve become fascinated by the gourmet, hand-crafted pastas I’ve spotted in local markets (but yikes, expensive).

After being entranced by a beautiful bag of fusilli pasta made by Rummo, and then spotting some fresh yams not very far away, I decided to make something a little different, and…
