Who doesn’t love a church potluck? I mean, sure, it can be stressful sometimes to decide what to bring, but there’s just something comforting and wonderful about the homemade secret-recipe hot-dishes mingling with box of store-bought donuts being passed off as desserts (ahem, not that I’ve ever done that or anything…).
