Whether you're partying with a crowd or just one or two, all the best New Year's Eve appetizers and drinks recipes are sure to give you plenty of reasons to celebrate and ring in a brand new year!
I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one.
I think there's something in my brain that tells me that because they're small the calories don't count as much...so please don't burst my bubble.
After all, diet season is right around the corner so we can all worry about those pesky additional pounds at that point. Until then...Cheers, and HAPPY New Year! Let's Party!!
It's always a party when Monte Cristo arrives! Enjoy the video;

Below is a photo of my blue blocker computer glasses in action! I swear by them! I work at the computer for what feels like all-day, every-day, and these glasses have relieved a great deal of eye-stress and migraine problems for me.
A neurologist was the one who recommended I get myself some, and it was the best thing he could have told me to do, so now I pass that information on to you!
I hope you've found several tempting recipes you'll be interested in making this appetizing season. And, hey, don't forget "the big game" is only a few weeks away and these appetizers would score big points on that day, too.
