New Year's Eve may be an over-hyped holiday, but that doesn't mean you have to give up the celebrations entirely. I'm a big believer in staying home on New Year's Eve with some good friends, a few cocktails, and some really great New Year's Eve foods. After all, you're going to need something to soak up all of the champagne.
The best part about New Year's Eve is that it's a total finger food holiday. People are dancing, playing games, watching the celebrations on TV, and writing resolutions. Who wants to cook a sit-down meal and spend hours in the kitchen? The best way to do New Year’s Eve, even if you're not throwing a party, is by whipping up some easy, delicious foods to send out the past year. You don't have to abide by a certain theme or tradition, you just need to make stuff you like. And these 11 recipes are perfect for any type of New Year's Eve gathering. There's indulgences on the list, along with some healthy versions of your favorite appetizers to keep you going until at least 12:01. At that point, you have my permission to pass out and eat the rest of these foods for breakfast the next morning. (Healthy eating resolutions start January 2, OK.)
