New Year’s Appetizers

new years appetizers

Wow, I can’t believe it is almost 2016!  I am sure all of you are gearing up for your New Year’s celebration.  We always have lots of appetizers on New Year’s Eve and then chili on New Year’s Day.  It is a fun time of year.  One more calorie filled celebration before we start anew in January and change our lives, right?  Seriously though, it is nice to have one time of year where you are not as worried about your waistline.  I have put together some delicious appetizer recipes, in case you are looking for something to add to your New Year’s Eve menu.  Happy New Year and I hope everyone has a great end to 2015.

    I am always looking for “munchies” in the freezer section of the market. Now, I will be trying out some of these appetizers.(the easiest ones, because I am baking, broiling, roasting -challenged!) I’m pretty good with a microwave, though! Thanks, Antonia!

      That’s awesome Claremary! I hope you get a chance to try some of them out. You are very funny! All of the dips are super easy to make, with my hummus and cheese dips being the easiest 🙂
