Sundays are special in many ways. Sunday dinners at the church are one of these. Potluck Sundays is when one person offers food to all the church members. Since I was a child, I can recall that most people served fried chicken at these dinners. This is why. It is readily available at the nearby food store. It’s so easy to walk into the store and pick up a few packets of fried chicken before you walk into the church.
It is due to lacks of planning, time and ideas. Imagine if you could cook, take a little time and prepare something special and elegant for the potluck. Many people would be amazed! Others would be jealous. Almost everyone would be amazed! You have shown so much appreciation and satisfaction by offering something with such little effort and love! Wouldn’t it be great if you could do the same?
It might be tempting to grab a fried chicken sandwich from your local deli or restaurant, but it is likely that you will find the same old thing over and over again.
You can find so many easy and simple recipes through various resources.

7. Enjoy the cooking.
The mood of the cook can often determine the quality of the food. Cook the foods you love. Don’t force yourself to follow complicated recipes. It would be less helpful and more time-consuming, which would lead to a worse result for the chef. Don’t make it stressful for yourself.
8. Don’t repeat the same dish twice.
Instead of sticking with the same recipe over and over, try a different recipe each time. Even a great dish can become repetitive and boring.
9. Make a list of all your favorite recipes.
