I love to try new recipes, but my advice is only one new recipe per holiday — all the rest should be old favorites. If your family is a mashed-potato bunch, make mashed potatoes. They can be done early and stay beautifully in a crock pot on low. Do as much as possible beforehand.

You will also need something to keep you going, so prepare caramel corn and cider punch ahead of time; borrow another crock pot if you have to!

Caramel Corn

• 6 quarts of popped corn
• dash salt
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup light corn syrup

1. Combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt and cook, stirring until it comes to a boil.

2. Stop stirring and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
