DEAR ABBY: I had to laugh when I saw the letter from "Not Sure If I Do," who hesitated to attend a potluck wedding at which guests would be expected to pitch in and do dishes. That sounds a lot like a Quaker wedding. In my meeting house there would be no minister, no music - perhaps some wildflowers picked from a nearby field. The couple would recite vows they had written. The only cost would be the courthouse fee and whatever the couple spent (if anything) on wedding attire.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I were invited to a dinner party at a couple's home. We accepted the invitation with pleasure, only to be told afterward that it was going to be a "potluck. " When I called the hostess to ask if we could bring dessert or perhaps an appetizer, she informed me that the menu had already been planned and we were assigned a side dish neither of us had ever heard of. Then she told me she would email me the recipe. Abby, I was shocked and, frankly, offended.

Memorial Day weekend is here, and with it, all the attendant demands for potluck offerings, followed by the furious thumbing-through of cookbooks. Oh, the glory of basking in oohs, aahs, of being hounded for recipes. No one wants to be the owner of the still-brimming platter on the picnic table — the one everyone politely passes over. The "luck" in potluck comes from tried-and-true, no-fail, consistently awesome recipes. Josh Kim, owner of the Spot truck, has wowed friends and family with his grilled chicken wings, rubbed with the unlikely combination of herbes de Provence and ginger, then basted with a beer-diluted barbecue sauce.

The lamb was on the grill, the vodka was flowing, the air was thick with the acrid smell of Bulgarian cigarettes, children raced from room to room, knots of people talked and laughed, but Vasily Belov had only one thing on his mind. "What is the news from Moscow?" he asked his fellow writer Georgy Semyonov, an enormous, grizzled, gregarious man who had flown into this country only a few hours before and had just burst into the room with a storm of greetings. "Tell me. What is happening?"

If you invited the Philadelphia Eagles to a potluck Super Bowl party, chances are that veteran running back-kick returner Brian Mitchell would rustle up some smothered chicken, smoked ribs or shrimp ?touff?e. Or he might step out to the patio to deep-fry a turkey. Head coach Andy Reid and his wife, Tammy, would arrive with Western sandwiches and Mississippi mud cake. Defensive line coach Tommy Brasher would carry in a party-sized casserole dish of low-fat eggplant parmesan. And right behind him, backup quarterback A.J. Feeley would be toting several bags of takeout from Dave & Buster's.

Momi, a small, new eatery off South Street, is majoring in nostalgia foods with a '50s flavor. From its TV dinners and Ovaltine to the tables, tiles and dishes, this is a time warp to be tackled with knife and fork. Remember Rice Krispies Treats, those slightly sticky, somewhat sweet squares made from the popular crispy rice cereal and marshmallows? They set the stage here for a cast of food characters that includes Fluffernutters, Tater Tots, potluck dinners and Jello. And if you like, you can wash it all down with Tang before leaving for home, pockets filled with complementary molasses-flavored Mary Jane chewies and sticks of bubble gum. Momi (it's pronounced Mommy)

Chapters focus on brunch, salads, slaws, hot sides, casseroles, game-day favorites, slow-cooker dishes, centerpieces, and desserts. "Potluck is an old-fashioned way of cooking for a bunch of people," says Christopher Kimball, founder and editor of Cook's Country and Cook's Illustrated, who was instrumental in assembling the cookbook.

The watchword for 2009 is less , as in: getting by on less; using less expensive ingredients; eating out less often. And more home cooking. The trend will affect families at all points along the culinary spectrum. Bon Appetit magazine, for example, suggests its home cooks substitute truffle oil for more expensive truffles, while Wegmans supermarkets say sales of supplies for home baking and canning are way up. "Over the last year, we've seen increased sales of baking ingredients such as flour, even over the spring and summer when flour prices were rising dramatically," says Josephine Natale, spokeswoman for the supermarket chain.
