December's Real Simple had a great spread with easy-looking recipes and suggestions for having fun at your own party. We usually celebrate New Year's with a few, good friends in the comfort of someone's home, and we all bring food + drink to share. Some ideas...
crab and chive puffs (p. 229) were a hit at her holiday party earlier this month, and I've been looking for a fun and easy puff pastry pastry. Also tempting in the app dept. is their hot ricotta dip. Check out the entire article, which starts on page 226.
And, if you're looking for ways to dress up champagne, check out the Food Network's quick list of party cocktails.
Have a great rest of the week, and I'll see you in 2011... with party pics. I can't wait to share the joy.
Hope your new year's eve is extra bubbly!
