October Potluck!

It's October Potluck time, and our very first Potluck with Giada.

Time to make any recipe you choose--as long as it is a recipe by Giada De Laurentiis of course!

So if you are craving pasta, a little pre-dinner pupu (that's an appetizer here in Hawaii), a ooey-gooey dessert, a nourishing soup or salad... just find your Giada Potluck recipe and get cooking!

Make and post your October Potluck recipe by Sunday, October 24th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous Giada potluck creation! And do remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Not sure what a permalink is? Check out our Welcome post.

If you missed the Served Family Style theme last week, be sure to head on over and see all of the delicious family-pleasing dishes everyone brought!

See you at the Potluck!

Decisions, decisions!! Let the potluck begin ;) Cute Deb.

Kim said...

Looks great Deb! I know exactly what I'm making this week. Can't wait to give it a try.

NKP said...

Yes! I love it. I think I might make my potluck tonight..

pam said...

I can't believe I'm first!!! That's a miracle!

Kim said...

Just posted my Orecchiette with Mini Chicken Meatballs. I made some changes based on the reviews and it was fantastic! Can't wait to see what everyone picks to share this week:)

Deb in Hawaii said...

I went for quick and easy and made Giada's Peanut Buttter Granola Bars. Pretty tasty but messy! ;-)

Deb in Hawaii said...

Hey Kim,

I don't see the link to your pasta???

Kim said...

Thanks Deb! I must have forget to hit enter or something.

Michelle B said...

Great entries so far! Looks like I'm going to sit out this week. Extra hrs at work and prepping for an annual family shindig. A little stressed over here! Have a recipe picked out for next week though. Will not miss out on chocolate.

Bibberche said...

Grrr, my husband ate my contribution to last week's Family Style Dinner before I had a chance to take a photo!
I am not taking any chances this week!
It's hard to believe, but I have never had Pasta e Fagioli. looking forward to reading all the entries:)

Couscous & Consciousness said...

Hi everyone - I've just posted Grilled Asparagus & Rock Melon Salad - I bookmarked this recipe last summer (don't know why I didn't make it back then) and have been wanting to make it ever since. With asparagus in season here now it seemed perfect, but not good melons here yet, so not quite as good as it could have been. Will definitely make it again though.

Andrea at Nummy Kitchen said...

Just posted Butternut Squash Lasagna -- I actually started making this one for last week but didn't get it done on time. Love all of the potluck fun :)

Kelly said...

I just posted Memories of Manicotti at Midnight - my new weight loss plan. lol

Joanna said...

All linked up! Yes, another soup :) And another FNHumor link.

Kim, I almost made that pasta with the mini meatballs, but couldn't find orecchiette in my store!

Tina said...

I LOVE Potluck! Just posted Linguine with scallops and lemon oil.

Lucia from Madison said...

Late to the party but...Wow amazing dinner.

Allison said...

This was my first time participating. Clearly I did the Mr. Linky wrong. I didn't realize I had to put in the name of my dish, too. Sorry! It was Italian White Bean, Pancetta, and Tortellini Soup. I promise I'll link better next time!

NKP said...

Mmm, lasagna rolls are up!

NKP said...

Welcome Allison! We have added you to the blogroll. ☺

Nico said...

Hi, this is my first time posting here! I made Giada's Spicy Tomato Soup. Also in the post, I have my own Risotto Fritters.

Chats the Comfy Cook said...

Last week was Dorie's soup. Which was better? I certainly can't tell. Delicious.

natalia said...

Mamma mia !! I wish I could eat all the entries !

Heather S-G said...

I brought some good ol' predictable polenta this girl fights, sorry ;)

Yrene MWCAdventure said...

My post is up! Nice picks this week, but can't hardly wait for next week...Chocolate!

Kim said...

What a fantastic turnout this week! I am really enjoying all the posts!

Natashya - Your lasagna rolls are caling to me. Fresh pasta, fresh ricotta - delicious!
