We maintain that it's always best to sign up for the dessert when faced with a potluck. It's the last dish of the evening, giving you leave to show up fashionably late with the most coveted part of the meal. With that said, baking in summer totally sucks. Use a few recipes from Bakeless Sweets: Pudding, Panna Cotta, Fluff, Icebox Cake & More No-Bake Desserts ($18) by Faith Durand to wow your potluck crowd instead. We're currently trying to decide what to make next: Nutella fluff (oh, yes!) or a s'mores pudding cake.
