In her first public appearance since becoming Mrs. Brandon Blackstock two weeks ago, Kelly Clarkson radiated cheer and joy.

Then again, she was taping a Christmas TV special.

The former American Idol winner took the stage at the Las Vegas Venetian Wednesday night, belting out songs from her Wrapped in Red album, along with a few of her greatest hits.

At one point Clarkson spoke about how attractive an audience member was. When some shouted out that she was a newly married woman, the singer replied good-naturally, "I will hit on someone and make him jealous … I'm just kidding, I love my man."

According to Trisha Yearwood, coleslaw recipes vary by region. "There are more varieties of coleslaw than there are shades of pink," she writes, jokingly.

The slimmed-down country star's favorite, though, comes from her mama, and instead of relying on sugar for sweetness, it uses salad pickles. "I think that lets the flavors of the carrots and cabbage shine through," she says.

Yearwood suggests making her dish the night before you serve it – "to let all the flavors meld together," she explains – and hopes it brings your family as many memories as it has hers.

When she learned her husband, Garth Brooks, would be singing at the April 7 Academy of Country Music Awards alongside his hero George Strait, Trisha Yearwood began searching for "arm candy" attire to wear to the Las Vegas event.

That's when she spied that dress – a form-fitting Stella McCartney column that she'd first admired on Kate Winslet in 2011. "I'd been working hard and losing inches, but I wondered, 'Can I fit into that?'" Yearwood recalls. The answer was a jaw-dropping yes. "It was tight!" says Yearwood, but "I felt confident. It was a wow dress."

Forget the candlelit dinner for two: Trisha Yearwood says she and hubby Garth Brooks plan to make their five-year anniversary celebration on Friday a family event.  

"When we got married five years ago we married the girls, so the five of us always celebrate together," she told PEOPLE at the Women of Worth Awards in New York City on Thursday.  

Yearwood is step-mom to Brooks's three teenage daughters – Taylor, August and Allie – and said the whole family has big plans for the anniversary they'll be celebrating back home in Oklahoma.  

"We're going to see Tangled," she revealed. "We all talked about it and said, 'Let's go see a movie.' We all actually really want to see it, and none of our children are young young."

The anniversary event is a bit of a prelude to their upcoming country Christmas, which Yearwood said will feature "family, home, just being together – and cooking."

When he sits down to dinner, Garth Brooks knows what he likes. "The joke in our house is, 'Add tortellini to it,' " his country-star wife, Trisha Yearwood, tells PEOPLE Country in it May issue. "That's Garth's solution to everything."

Still, that's not necessarily Yearwood's. For the Nashville favorite, mother knew best.

"When I think of recipes, I think of church napkins and notebook paper. I have a lot of mom's handwritten recipes. I cherish those." says Yearwood, who has re-teamed with her sister Beth to dish up their second cookbook, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood.

As icing on the cake, starting with the June 18 issue, Trisha is also launching a new column for PEOPLE Country – sharing recipes and personal anecdotes, and answering reader questions. (E-mail her at country@peoplemag.com.)

Trisha Yearwood knows the secret to keeping her family close: Eating together.

"When I was growing up, suppertime, as we called it, was when the family got together around the table – that was our family time," the country singer tells Redbook in its April issue. "Those dinners are some of the best memories of my childhood."

An accomplished chef and cookbook author herself – her latest book, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, arrives in stores in April – Yearwood and hubby Garth Brooks keep up the same family mealtime tradition at their Oklahoma ranch.

"Having dinner together is something Garth and I have worked at making sure we do, because it's too easy these days not to," she says. "Now we're all going to sit down and the cells are going to be turned off and there are not going to be any iPods playing into anyone's ears. It's time for family."
