Potluck perfection

Potluck dinner party

They’re an unlikely pair, to be sure, but lifestyle mogul Martha Stewart and hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg’s variety cooking show, Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party on VH1, speaks to the very essence of a potluck — friends and family sharing a meal where everyone contributes a dish, creating a feast.

The intimate gatherings are a come-as-you-are, no-fuss, no-stress way to celebrate togetherness in all seasons.

Whether you’re hosting a potluck or attending one as a guest, it’s always best to plan and prepare. At the end of the night, what everyone will remember more than the pies, the punch or the party itself, is perhaps the most important thing of all: the people.

Here are some of our favorite potluck-friendly recipes!
