Re: GTKY: Cookout Edition

  • Either a store bought dessert or homemade pasta salad depending on how much time I have

  • @emjohn517 that looks so so good!
  • @highsteaks I ate way more of that than I care to admit  :D :D

  • Ooh this is a good one! I love getting ideas for this kind of stuff. I usually will bring a dip or a dessert. My go to dips are guacamole and pico de gallo or some other homemade salsa. For desserts, I am loving this almond sheet cake right now. https://tastesbetterfromscratch.com/almond-sheet-cake/

  • Frito and bean salad. Sounds weird, looks gross, tastes amazing! I've never found a recipe for it online the way I was taught to make it and i make it mostly to taste:

    Brown sugar baked beans
    Chopped red bell pepper
    Cherry tomatoes (halved) 
    Diced green onion
    Chopped cilantro
    Ranch dressing
    And then mix in Fritos right before serving

    I gave this the major side-eye before trying it the first time, then happily admitted I was wrong.

  • I love all you guys' ideas. I'm usually pretty simple in what I take. Chips and guacamole or a cut up fruit bowl. I do love to bake so sometimes I'll take dessert, Cannoli poke cake, cheesecake, and chocolate chip cookies are my go-to's.

  • I usually stick to cold desserts. I often make this, but double the recipe. So delicious if you like lemon: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mrfood.com/Bar-Cookies/Lemon-Refrigerator-Bites/amp

  • Usually a pasta salad.  Noodles, mini pepperoni, black olives, cucumber, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, (whatever other veggies I may have on hand), italian dressing.

  • Hmm... this is a hard one since it usually depends on what others are bringing.  For appetizers, I would probably make my spinach & artichoke dip or if I really want to impress, brown sugar bacon wrapped lil smokies.  Side dish, maybe a cold bean salad for something different (would have to find a recipe or make it up).

  • This thread is making me SO HUNGRY, and I just finished breakfast!

    @middleschoolmommy That bean salad sounds so intriguing. Mmm!
    @vrj0522 Do you have a recipe for the cannoli poke cake? I  <3 cannoli and have never had it in cake form.

    Since @pink_polkadots already chose buffalo chicken dip (my fave!) I'll go with an angel food cake with lemon glaze. It's a nice, light dessert for the summer. I only ever make angel food cake with the box mix and it always turns out really yummy. Then I poke holes in the top of the cake with a fork and pour the lemon glaze over it. The glaze is lemon juice, lemon zest, and powdered sugar.

  • My DH is a much better cook than me. He would make either baked beans or lasagna. Those are the two things he is asked to bring often.

  • Guys, you're making me hungry!  I'm going to a cookout this weekend and I'm bringing baked ziti with my family's homemade sauce and this rosa marina salad... sounds weird since it's a pasta and fruit salad but it's sooo delicious! http://www.thehungryhousewife.com/2009/07/rosa-marina-salad.html

  • yum! these sound amazing. I'd go with pasta or greek salad, or let my laziness win and bring chips and dip :) 
    highsteakstessiesmom26
  • We usually make Chamorro style pork ribs.... basically ribs marinated in soy sauce,  vinegar, and onions. They're delicious. Or I will make a dessert we want to try out. Sometimes they're disasters, but oh well!
