Today’s #SundaySupper is all about “Food that Travels” and we are sharing with you all the amazing and delicious recipes that you could take on your next picnic or potluck!
Thank you to Marion over at Life Tastes Good for hosting today’s SundaySupper Event!
Deciding what to take to a picnic or potluck can be tricky sometimes. Whether you are taking a hot or cold dish there are challenges to getting it to your destination. Problems like how to keep it warm or how to warm it up once you arrive. If you are using a cooler to keep food cold, you have to make sure it doesn’t accidentally get waterlogged if ice melts.
This Cherry Pound Cake with Lime Glaze however is very easy to carry with you and it doesn’t have to be warm or cold! I have been known to cut it in slices and carry it in some Tupperware to keep it fresh and serve it right from the Tupperware container.
What are some of your favorite recipes to take on picnics or potlucks? Are you a casserole or salad person? Entree or dessert? I have always been a dessert person even though it is not something I eat much of. I love to bake and share it with everyone! Be sure to share in the comments section what your favorite recipes for food that travels are and before you leave be sure to check out all the recipes from other Sunday Supper Food Traveler’s this week listed after the recipe!
