Worry-Free Buffets for Easy Entertaining
Everyone’s Favorite Potluck
Potluck is the most traditional and easy to

jalapenos, sour kraut and veggies make wonderful
buffets. They look indulgent and satisfy even
the pickiest eaters. I like to offer Black Bean
Burgers (Morning Star Brand) for those who are
health conscious or vegetarians.
