Jan Roeder of Decatur sent me a copy of “Potluck 7,” the seventh cookbook in her Potluck series. In it she shares recipes from friends and family.

I thought I’d share a few. A couple of the recipes are very distinct, such as the Hoagie Dip – I’ve never seen one like it. The same goes for the Pineapple Dip, which is a mixture of pineapple chunks, sugar and cheddar cheese thickened with flour and topped with butter and butter-flavored crackers.
