Seeking holiday pot luck ideas, tailored to my needs

I'm going to a pot luck. Usually, these events are full of inexpensive carbs and baked goods. I can afford to spend some cash on protein. But I also want it to be easy — I'm a decent but not terribly disciplined or exacting cook, and a lot of folks might be vegetarian. [more inside]

I am making Thanksgiving dinner for the second time. A couple of years ago, I made this sheet-pan dinner for two. But now there will be a total of three adults. Can I just increase the ingredients of this recipe by 50 percent, or do you have another suggestion?

white new england cheese

For most of my life, I’ve considered the default color of both cheddar and American cheese to be yellow. I’ve always been aware of the existence of white cheddar and white American, but those have always seemed to be variations, like green tomatoes or blue corn tortillas. But not in New England. Why?

I put an already-opened bag of kale in the freezer. Safe?

I add kale to my smoothies. Two weeks ago, I bought a big bag of kale from the grocery store and took out some of the kale to make smoothies. I put the (clipped) bag back in the refrigerator for a few days, then put the bag in the freezer so I could save it for the next batch of smoothies (later this week). I believe the kale was put in the freezer before its expiration date. Is this okay/safe? [more inside]

Freezing Egg Rolls

I'd like to make a big batch of egg rolls and freeze some of them to eat later. Do I cook them before freezing or can I freeze them raw? Or maybe I should not do this. If you've tried it, I'd love to hear about your experience.

Canned fish without the smell

I love eating canned sardines and herring as snacks, they are delicious and filling. But I can only eat them when everyone else is out of the house because my whole family thinks the smell is absolutely awful. Is there anything else that is as tasty, full of protein, and as easy, but less smelly? Restrictions: no cooking and shelf-stable. [more inside]
