Getting Ready for a Potluck – Big Summer Style

By Kristen Mercure

Who doesn’t love a potluck?

It’s the trifecta of good things: Friends, mingling, and great food – the signature items that you bring plus a slew of dishes you’d have never thought to make yourself.  A buffet of creativity that you get to enjoy with your best buds.  Win, win, win all around.


Those are just some of the reasons why we’re excitedly packing our bags for this weekend’s Big Summer Potluck, an annual gathering of food lovers put on by The Ivory Hut and Three Many Cooks.  It’s three days jam-packed with schmoozing with old and new friends, workshops galore, and of course, dishes from some of the best cooks around – the hosts and attendees!  Some of our very own K-Cup® Ambassadors will even be on the ground, taking the weekend in for all its foodie worth and sharing the K-Cup® love.

So, what does a coffee company bring to a potluck?  We do have a lot of spectacular recipes using Green Mountain Coffee® varieties thanks to Bluebonnets & Brownies, so we have some options.

But let’s be honest: when it’s 8 AM on Saturday and you’re in need of a revelation, what do you want?  Coffee – hot and caffeinated.  When it’s 3 PM in the summer after a full day of inspiring workshops, what do you need? Coffee – cool and creamy.  Iced, hot, and creatively mixed (we’re talking to you, K-Cup®  Mixologists!) we’ll be bringing a pallet of Green Mountain Coffee® K-Cup® packs for Big Summer Potluck guests to enjoy throughout the day.

If you can’t make it to Big Summer Potluck, don’t worry!  Follow the weekend activity on Twitter with hasttag #bsp3 and have your own potluck at home! What’s your go-to potluck dish?  Wild Mountain Blueberry™ Pound Cake is a showstopper with crowds!
