It's Potluck time again!

Here's your chance to make one of those many Rick Bayless recipes that you have tagged but haven't fit into a theme yet.

So, what are you craving this week? 

Make any Rick Bayless recipe from one of his books or online and post it by Sunday, July 1st. Potluck means anything goes--as long as it is a Bayless recipe of course!

Don't forget to link up with Mr. Linky below so that we can all see your fabulous creation. Please remember to leave a comment after linking up so that we're sure to see your post as soon as it goes up.

If you're new to IHCC, please see our WELCOME post for all of the details to join in the fun!

And, if you happened to miss last week's Summer Salads roundup, take a minute to check out the greens, veggies and dressings that everyone made.

Summer Salads!

Is it just me, or does it feel like we are travelling a little too close to the sun this week? It is hot, hot, hot here. And I live in Canada!

Let's give ourselves a bit of a break in this heat and go for something cool and nourishing - like a salad!

Rick Bayless is the master of fresh Mexican style flavours and that goes for his salads too. You can go for a composed salad, dinner salad, or side. The choice is yours!

Pick a salad (or salad dressing) from one of Rick Bayless' recipes online or in his books, post on or by Sunday, June 24th and post to Mr. Linky below. Don't forget to leave a message in the comments to tell us about your delicious Bayless dish!

Holy Frijoles!

Beans! So versatile, so easy to use, so..... cheap! Yep, they deliver nutrition, great protein and they don't break the bank!

So how are you going to use frijoles in this week's cooking club dish?

Tangy black beans as a side for grill night?

 Hearty bean soup with rustic bread?

 As part of a delicious filling for an awesome sandwich or wrap?

Or even for dessert! 

Whip up your Frijoles (beans) dish from one of Rick Bayless' recipes and link up here with Mr. Linky on or by Sunday, June 17th.
