April * * * * * * * !

Do you know what time it is? Let's see if you can guess....
Hmmmm.....

How 'bout now...

Any clue?

You must have an inkling...

...tee hee....

...is it on the tip of your tongue?

Go ahead, roll the dice...

It's that time of the month where you can choose anything you like.

You choose a recipe...any recipe...any theme...

Blog it, link it, leave a comment...

Yup, you guessed it...I knew you would...

Okay, one rule...make sure you're using a recipe from our current beau, Mark Bittman! Simple, huh?

Link your I Heart Cooking Clubs post of the week's permalink with Mr. Linky, below, so we can all see your fabulous April Potluck creation! Please leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Fun potluck post Heather! So happy to have you back in action. ;-)

I made my potluck dish for dinner tonight--YUM! But probably won't post for another day or too. ;-)

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

That is hilarious!
I love it. Very creative Heather, such fun.
Guess I had better crack the books and find something to make for pot luck..!

Joanne said...

I loved this post! Yay potluck!

Kim said...

Great job Heather! Very creative, playful and fun:D

Couscous & Consciousness said...

Great post - I haven't quite decided what to cook yet, but looking forward to whipping up another Bittman recipe.

Now for an OMG, this could not have come at a better time ... I have yet to get a Bittman book, and have been using online recipes, but my prayers have been answered in the just released "How to Cook Everything" iPhone application http://www.culinate.com/app/htce This is positively genius - has the entire contents of the book, a place to store and keep favourites, variations, grocery lists, and more I think. I've just downloaded it and can't wait to start playing!!

Debinhawaii said...

OK, my Pasta with Bacon & Breadcrumbs (aka: a little bit of heaven!) is posted.

Sue--I added the HTCE iphone app myself today even though I have the book--It was $1.99 for Pete's sake. ;-) I can't wait to play around with it too.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Man, I need an iphone.

Looks like we are all in the mood for comfort food this week. Yum!

I brought the chocolate mousse, grab a spoon..

Kim said...

Sue - Thanks for sharing the information about the iphone app for HTCE. I don't have an iphone, but I know that many people do and I'm sure that people will find that helpful :D

Deb - I am definitely thinking of making your pasta with bacon and breadcrumbs this week - you sold me on it!

Natashya - I love the mousse, especially this grown up version which is a perfect warm weather dessert!

Chaya - I am getting an error message when I click on your link, but I'm guessing the caramelized apple cake is delicious!

girlichef said...

Wow, that is so cool. I wish I had an IPhone!!!

Sweet and Savory said...

Kim, I will go back and see what is going on.

I love the intro, Heather. Glad to see you back.

Sweet and Savory said...

Kim, I clicked on it and it took me to the recipe. Would you try it again?

Debinhawaii said...

Hey Chaya,

I just tried it now to check out your dish and leave you a comment and the link takes me to your blog but with an error message and not the recipe.

Aloha,

Deb

girlichef said...

Thanks Chaya...glad to be back :) I tried clicking on your link and got the "error" message, as well...shows your blog, just no content in the main section!?

Kim said...

Just posted my Chile Bisque - a smoky, spicy, unique treat!

zibilord said...

Hi, I just posted Spicy Cinnamon Pork from How to Cook Everything - now I'm checking out the iPhone app. Sounds so useful!

Cool collection of 'pot luck' pics :)

The Country Cook said...

Hello and happy pot luck week "ya'll". I made steamed pot stickers.

Pot stickers for pot luck week! HaHaHa

Yvette said...

My first IHCC post!

I'm addicted to strawberries, so had to do something with them.

And i really want an i phone to(i pad would also be great)

Carla and Michael said...

We weren't wild about Mark Bittman at first,however the more recipes of his we cook we are begining to get a bit more excited with him. Great posts everyone.

Tiff said...

I loved the potluck theme! I especially loved the creative post announcing the theme!

Couscous & Consciousness said...

What a hectic week it's been. I just posted Curried Coconut Aubergine with Potatoes - loved it!!

It's Saturday afternoon (a wet one to boot) and now I have a bit of time to sit down and read all your posts - it looks as though you've all cooked up some wonderful dishes.

Am loving the iPhone application - it's genius. I saw a tweet today - an application for HTCE Vegetarian is in the works, possibly out later this year - how cool. A Kitchen Express application would really cap things off :-)

Sue

Couscous & Consciousness said...

Natshya, that chocolate mousse looks gorgeous, and the espresso cream really does it for me - I love the combination of coffee and chocolate.
Sue

zibilord said...

Natshya... your chocolate mousse looks incredible. You're lucky this is a virtual potluck otherwise guests would be clamouring for more :)

Andrea at Nummy Kitchen said...

Love the pot luck dishes this week! Can't wait to check them all out.

Deb, you were my pasta inspiration :)

Andreas said...

Post is up.

Great photo series for this post here. It made me stop and think "That's not spear-mint,isn't it?"

;)

girlichef said...

I brought two kinds of pasta. I'm so indecisive ;) Delicious potluck everybody!

girlichef said...

Andreas...LOL!! Only if spear-mint can somehow be connected with "pot". Cuz that's what I was going for. In case I wasn't clear ;P I would say maybe if it was lucky...but it would have to be in the second position for that... Okay, rhetorical I know...yet I still blabber on.

melissa said...

My first IHCC post and I screwed up! I made an eggplant dip from Bittman's 101 picnic dishes list.

Thanks for organizing!

girlichef said...

I don't think you screwed up Melissa!? Looks great...and your link took me to the post, so...yum. :)

Couscous & Consciousness said...

Girlichef, just read your post - that pasta with fried eggs got me positively drooling - why have I never done that, it looks sensational!!
Sue

Kim said...

Heather- I've been eyeing that fried eggs with pasta recipe in KE. It looks amazing!! I now have a huge craving for it;D

girlichef said...

Sue & Kim...yes! It was so good and super simple... try it, you won't be disappointed. I hope ;)

Joanna said...

Finally got the photos fixed on my mac and cheese post! As always, I am loving the variety of this week's potluck! I now have to try the brownies, several more pasta meals, and that chili bisque!

girlichef said...

OKAY ALL....AMAZON HAS 7 COPIES OF KITCHEN EXPRESS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW FROM $1.26(new) to $1.70(used-like new, etc)!!!! Now is the perfect time to order one! This is a fabulous book. Also, I just ordered The Minimalist Entertains for .83 cents! 83 CENTS, plus s&h!!! Wowza!

Judi said...
