10 Great Appetizer Recipes for New Years Eve 2014

As the familiar saying goes - when one chapter closes another opens. It is much like a year coming to a close in the anticipation of the New Year.  As we get closer to saying goodbye to 2014, we look forward to welcoming 2015. This time of year is a time to reflect on what accomplishments, goals and dreams were made into reality.  It is a time to be thankful, grateful and hopeful for what is to come.  It is a time to renew goals and dreams for the future.  It is a time to be with family and friends and to celebrate the moments with the people who mean the most to you.

With most celebrations, it involves food and wine or adult libations.  Since New Years Eve is only days away, I wanted to share with all of you, my faithful readers some of my favorite appetizers.  Hopefully you have already have plans for New Years Eve – whether it is an intimate night in with the one you love or a fun filled cocktail party at your home or a friends house, I have some great appetizer ideas for you.

Here is a collection of my 10 favorite appetizers I have made over the last year.  If you are in the mood for some herbaceous nuts or savory Crostini or hearty meatballs, there is something for every person’s palate.  I want to wish each and everyone of you ALL THE BEST for 2015 and may it be a year filled with spending quality time with family and friends, great health, tasty food and divine wines!


  1. wow they all look amazing. I am kicking myself for not having the time to put together a post like this on my site. Itsjust been so crazy around here lately. Anyway glad you did and you always have the most delicious recipes. I love those meatballs. Here is to a happy new year!

    1. Thank you!! You still have time to put together a post! Smile! Happy New Year to you!!!!!!

  2. I wish I could have a spread of your appetizers for dinner tonight, they all look wonderful. I'm not sure which one I'd taste first.

    1. You are welcome anytime you are in the SF Bay Area! Happy Holidays!!!

  3. You make the best appetizers, these all look so good. Happy New Year, Lisa!

  4. Dear Lisa! Happy New Year! Much health and prosperity!
    I love all these 10 ideas, and I must say, I tasted 4 of them in the past year: -) with my family . All four were big hits; we love endives and Broussel sprouts (both are the regional highlight in our geographic zone:-) so, I must learn to do varieties of things with these two ingredients). Your bog provides much inspiration to me, in this regards.

    Unfortunately, my work life got extremely hectic just before Christmas and I got no chance to post earlier:-(
    We are still recovering from what was a very stressful period... and for now enjoy an extended vacation in the South of France: -) you can guess, a lot of crustini, known here as *tartines* : -))

    All the best!

  5. P.S. Lisa, I entered my comments and feedback concerning those four recipes that became a permanent part of my repertoire of appetizers: -)
    I look forward to learning more in 2015!!


It simply makes me smile when I receive a new comment and I look forward to hearing from you!
