November Potluck with Tessa

A quick update for those of you on Twitter, we've changed our hashtag to #I♥CC since our old one was so ruthlessly hijacked.  Please add it (just copy & paste) to any posts you tweet for I Heart Cooking Clubs!  Click on the #I♥CC on Twitter tab at the top of the page for more details and to see participants Twitter handles.  Plus, if yours isn't on there, be sure to leave it in the comments so we can start tweeting your posts, as well. Thanks!
-----------
It's POTLUCK time again.  Time to make that Tessa recipe that you've had your eye, but just hasn't fit in with a theme yet.  Or maybe it does down the line, but you just can't wait any longer!  It's time for you to decide what you're in the mood for: a loaf of warm bread, a pot of steaming soup, a meaty casserole to satisfy you on a cold day, a plate heaped with colorful veggies bound to bring a smile to your face, or perhaps it's something sweet and sinful for dessert (or breakfast...it's your prerogative, afterall)!?
No matter your choice, we can't wait to see what you bring to the table this week.  It's time for a virtual feast as varied as the people who have cooked it!  So break out your Tessa books and head into the kitchen- it's time for a POTLUCK!

I am loving this recipe. So far I have loved EVERYTHING of Tessa's!

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Woot! I love potluck!
Now, I seem to have a glut of winter squash and a 5 lb bag of beets...

MM said...

I know it's been done twice (Deb & Kayte) but I couldn't resist: Baked Feta. It was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Tessa Kiros' pita was also the best pita bread I've ever made. I love Food From Many Greek Kitchens!

Kayte said...

I have not a clue how to make lamb anything but it didn't matter as Tessa's recipe is a breeze and this was a huge hit here. Lamb more often for sure!

Hi, I've just linked two recipes of Tessa's! Never heard of Tessa Kiros before this! The Potatoes with Egg and the Tomato Pasta is so easy to put together and so delicious! Looking forward to more of Tessa Kiros's recipes. Thank you!

Andrea at Nummy Kitchen said...

I've brought some homey banana bread to the potluck :) Can't wait to check out the other dishes this week!

luckybunny said...

I made the veal involtini I've been wanting to make :) It was great. I'm so enjoying everyone elses potluck recipes, I've got a list of them to make, everything looks/sounds so good!

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

I have garlic breath!
I mean, I made a whole Greek dinner last night from Tessa's Food from Many Greek Kitchens!
Pork souvlaki, pita, spicy feta, and yogurt on the side.
Opa!

MM said...

Natashy-that was some feast!

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Thanks so much! We really enjoyed it. ☺

Kim said...

I've had my eye on Tessa's chocolate and cranberry cookies for ages and finally got around to making them. Delicious!!

Deb in Hawaii said...

Crazy week but I managed to squeeze in some gorgeous Cranberry Sorbet. It looked so good when Sue made it last month that I had to make it for myself. ;-)

Heather Schmitt-González said...

I made some simple chicken cutlets this week. BUT, they are totally "beg-worthy". ;)

kitchen flavours said...

Natashya, that is a yummilicious plate of meal you've made! Looks so good. I've seen the pita bread over at MM's too, KIV to try!

Yvette said...

Made almond cakes for this weeks potluck, can't whait to see what everybody will cook up for next weeks theme "orange skies".

Kim said...

Natashya - Wow, that is an impressive menu! I love the idea of using pork tenderloin for making the souvlaki. Seems like it would be quicker than some of the alternatives. And, I'm pretty sure I could spoon feed myself some of that spicy feta...

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Thanks so much! It was really a great meal - and tenderloin cooks up so nice and quick and tender. ☺
