If you're bringing food to a potluck or to a picnic, you need to think about how well the dishes you make can travel. You want dishes that can last the hour plus car-ride and hold up - dishes that can reheat easily, that won't go bad - or better yet, foods that are actually better eaten cool or at room temperature.  These dishes are the perfect picks if you want your food to cross the finish line looking as good as the moment they left your kitchen.
