gojee potluck

Some of you know that I am a contributor to Gojee, a fun website featuring delicious recipes and photos from a group of incredibly talented folks. Somehow I snuck in… gojee remains one of my favorite projects to be a part of.

Along with talent, they are a group of really fun folks – they often host parties and fun events for the contributors. They recently celebrated the new year with a potluck, and for those of us who could not attend, it became a virtual potluck!

If I were able to get to New York last week, this is what I would have brought.

A party isn’t a party without fun cocktails, right? My liquor bottles in ice are always a hit.

I fashioned another fun bottle just for the event – that I’ll take to a friend’s birthday party this weekend. Birthday candles are festive for potlucks, yes?

Once the ice begins to melt, those candles can be lit…

My other contribution to the potluck – dill pickle dip – we have made this for many a party and it is always well received.

pickle dip / spread

vegan, gluten free

1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water several hours to overnight
1 cup dill pickles, chopped
3 tablespoons pickle juice
pinch onion powder

In food processor, pulse cashews for several minutes, until almost creamy. Add pickles (reserving 2 tablespoons for garnish), juice and onion powder while continuing to process until creamy. Store in refrigerator until ready to eat; serve with chips and vegetables.

Want to see what else was at the party? Starting next Thursday, January 26, you can see other potluck dishes my fellow gojee contributors shared. Go to gojee.com and enter “gojee potluck” into I Crave.  You can also follow #gojeepotluck on Twitter.

      I was SO going to make my own pita chips the last time I made this dip – that is IT – we share a brain and we need to share a bakery! 😀

    i think I told you about me and pickles…we go to together like bread and butter. Oh and I LOVE bread and butter pickles for that matter. But I digress….I’m just waiting for the day i get to have you at my potluck.

      you are SO welcome. I had a thought, didn’t know if it would be a good one… I liked it, didn’t know if anyone else would… everyone LOVES this. 😀

      sorry about that, Celina – I’d hate to keep a pregnant lady from her pickle dip! Soak cashews in water for several hours (at least 3?) to overnight.

      OR! I just thought of this… soak in pickle juice!?!? wow.

      hope you enjoy! Kristina
