Holiday Bash on a Budget

If you decide to have a potluck meal, your work will be much simpler than if you're cooking a full dinner all on your own. However, you should coordinate the menu with your guests. (You don't want a table filled with nothing but salads!) Once you have a sense of what people are bringing, you can prepare a few complementary dishes. Your kids will enjoy helping you in the kitchen. Children are often especially willing to help prepare desserts. Choose from some of the following recipes to create a hearty winter feast.
