September Potluck!

It's Potluck time again!

Sadly, this is our last Potluck with Mark Bittman, so pull out that Bittman recipe you have been saving to try, or maybe you want to remake a previous Bittman favorite. Either way...

Get ready for our September Potluck!

Anything goes for a Potluck dish, as long as it is a Bittman recipe of course!

Post your Potluck creation by Sunday, September 26th and don't forget to link up your post with Mr. Linky below. Remember to leave a comment when you link up, so don't miss seeing your fab creation. New to IHCC and not sure about how the whole deal works? Just check out the Welcome post for all of the info.

Speaking of fab food, if you didn't get a chance to check out all the cheesy-goodness for last week's "Say Cheese!" theme, go back and take a look at what cheesy delights everyone selected to make.

It is going to be hard to say goodbye to Mark Bittman next week, and I am sure everyone has already checked out the poll results for our newest cook, starting in October, but just in is Giada De Laurentiis. It was a close race between Giada and Lidia Bastianich, with Giada taking an early lead, then Lidia coming from behind and dominating the votes until the eleventh hour when Giada jumped ahead and won the popular vote. Such drama! ;-) With four great cooks/chefs, it was really a no-lose situation, and of course we can put Lidia up for another vote later on. We will be posting October's themes soon, and also giving IHCC a bit of a facelift to welcome Giada, including adding some links to her website and sources for her recipes. So get ready!

See you all at the Potluck with your best Bittman dish!

Yay! finally a chef that I don't have to buy any new books for! I already have all of GIada's.

Great post! I am going to miss Bitty, I am surprised how much I enjoyed getting to know him.
Welcome Giada! Looking forward to a delicious fall and winter with you. ;-)

Kim said...

Great post, Deb! Bittman was an awesome choice and I have enjoyed picking from his huge variety of recipes over the last 6 months. On the other hand, I'm really excited to cook with Giada. There are so many of her recipes that I've been wanting to try:)

Heather S-G said...

Hmmmm...what to make, what to make?? And Giada. {a big...nah, not really...} woo.hoo. Hopefully she'll grow on me. ;)

Sadly, we have had too much going on in our house for Mr. Bittman. Will definitely be back for Giada!

Couscous & Consciousness said...

I'm going to miss cooking with Bitty, even though for one reason or another I have missed several weeks. Looking forward to cooking with Giada, and finishing off with Bittman with the potluck this week.

NKP said...

Good morning! My pasta with herbed ricotta and dried cherries is up!

Joanna said...

My quiche is up. And I am with you, Heather! I used to love Giada, but just wait til I show you guys some of the FoodTV Humor blog stuff I've been reading. SOOO funny! I was hoping for Lidia, but I can play nice!

Deb in Hawaii said...

Just posted Bittman's Sesame Shrimp Toasts and Egg Drop Soup. Both from Kitchen Express and together a nice light meal. ;-)

Hi everyone! I am sad to see Bittman go as you know I love him so! (i sound like dr. suess!) I am linking up his corny bacon cornbread this week for the pot luck. Also, I do a tackling bittman theme every thursday and I spoke to heather about doing a monthly link up. If anyone is interested in participating, that would be great! WE can do challenges if you like, and we can also rotate hosts or share hosting. Lemme know! Welcome to Giada next month. I have not cooked her before, but have watched her show. It shall be a new experience! :) Alex@amoderatelife

Couscous & Consciousness said...

Hi everyone - I just posted Gabrielle's "Sticky" Lemon Squares - very sticky, gooey, lemony and heavenly.

Looking forward to cooking with Giada next week and beginning a new journey with you all :-)
