What to feed omni's

A frequent question I get from readers is, "What can I take to a potluck?" or "What can I feed my tofu-fearing parents?" 

I remember the first time I had my parents over for dinner after I'd gone vegan. I was a nervous wreck all day and my mother later admitted that she almost bailed on the car ride over -- What if it was terrible?! What would she do? Try to gag it down!? Could she avoid this situation indefinitely?

Fortunately, dinner went without so much as a hiccup and my parents have come to really love and enjoy eating healthy vegan food. (I made them Veggie Biscuit Pot Pie and Corn Chowder).

I created a number of "omni-friendly" recipes in my cookbook -- recipes that are intended for mixed diet gatherings like parties or potlucks, but several recipes here on happyherbivore.com have been a smashing success at dinner parties I've thrown or attended... which brings me to today's theme.
