"The best recipe there ever was. It can’t be Christmas without it. 1 gallon of apple juice (100% apple juice) ½ gallon of pineapple juice 1 cinnamon stick 5 clove pieces ½ t. nutmeg 1 orange, sliced juice of 1 lemon ½ c. sugar Combine all ingredients in a big pot on the stove and simmer for 2-3 hours. Or in a large crock pot for 2 hours on high, then turn to low or ‘keep warm’ and can be left on all day. (Favorite method is in the crock pot.) Recipe from Helen Robinson of Canyon, Texas"
Ham & Cheese Pretzel Bites. More fussiness to do from scratch, but yay, homemade pretzel dough. Tip: if it's not a dairy-based pretzel dough, the same boil-then-bake process with a water-based dough (like Trader Joe's prefab pizza dough, hint hint) becomes BAGEL. Bagels and pretzels are first cousins -- so you can snack in the family without spending a day in the kitchen.

Wine Jello Shots; because real women are classy when they are being trashy ;) use 2 pkgs of jello and substitue your favorite sweet wine for the cold water. Let boiling water and gelatin cool before adding the wine. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish, chill until set. Run a knife around edge of dish and invert onto a cutting board, trim edges, cut into 1 1/4-inch squares. Enjoy!
