Book Review: Potluck Survival Guide, Care & Feeding of the Athletic Supporter by Cherie Kimmons


This is a cookbook full of treasured recipes and ideas for everything from cooking for game days to provide carbohydrates and protein to pick them up before the game and give them strength after the game, to meals for potlucks where you need a large quantity, to daily meals in your kitchen that children and adults both will love!

There are suggested menus, explanations of why these foods are good for active people, and little sidebars that tell you ways to change the flavors or tips on how to cook the dish.
I’m not athletic, but I found lots of recipes in the book that I can and will use – this one is a keeper!
We used to have the Seattle-Portland bike ride go through Chehalis, Washington, where I once lived. They had a spaghetti dinner with lots of water and Gatorade for the folks when they peddled into town. This cookbook offers you a whole lot of other alternatives!
And none are hard to make. This is written for Mom’s on the go and most dishes can be fixed up quickly and put in the oven, or prepared the night before for the next morning. There’s info on how to make meals that will travel with you on the way to the game.
If you have an active, busy family, this cookbook is for you. If you do potlucks, there are some great, tasty recipes for that. And, if you’re like me and in a house with two occupants, it’s still a great cookbook because it has good tasting easy recipes!
