‘Picnics, Potlucks, and Porch Parties’

    If you are stuck in a rut when it comes to recipes for outdoor entertaining, let Aimee Broussard liven things up with fun ideas from her new cookbook, “Picnics, Potlucks & Porch Parties.”
    Broussard puts her own twist on traditional fare to make dishes more flavorful, attractive and festive. (Wait til you see what she does with Mason jars.) She offers 150 recipes for beverages, appetizers, barbecue and grilling, breakfast and brunch, main dishes, sides, slow cooking, seafood, sweets and more. There are tips and ingredient variations throughout the book, menu plans and clever suggestions for no-mess, no-fuss cooking and serving. (Tin Foil Shrimp Boil omits the need for a large pot of boiling water.)
    Broussard’s recipes are easy to prepare with common ingredients. Her instructions are detailed enough for beginning cooks, and the color photographs will inspire rave-worthy presentations.
    A native of Louisiana, Broussard is a food blogger and author who has been featured in Taste of Home magazine and other publications, and has co-hosted several Taste of Home Cooking School shows, where she prepared her Honey Garlic Party Meatballs. In May, she appeared on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David” TV show to introduce her new cookbook.
    “Picnics, Potlucks & Porch Parties” is published by Quail Ridge Press, a member of Southern Pine Electric Power Association. The 224-page softcover book is available in stores for $24.95. To order, call 800-343-1583 or go to quailridge.com.
