Mmmmmm...I love New Years Eve.

Anything that has to do with eating tasty treats and drinking champagne can't be bad, right?

I've got a double whammy this week - tonight I am hosting a get-together for my friend Tara, who is visiting from LA.

And then tomorrow I am hosting New Year's Eve dinner.

I haven't even thought about what I am going to cook for Friday night yet...I believe that my brother is bringing a venison tenderloin to cook on the grill, and then there was some talk about crab legs...and I've been craving risotto...

But right now I need to focus on tonight's party.

It should be a pretty laid back, everyone-bring-an-appetizer-to-share type of evening.

I am making my Deviled Eggs (with a kick!), and Buffalo Chicken Dip. Obviously my pledge to eat healthy(er) is not working out so well.

In my defense I wanted to make dishes with some protein, since there won't be a proper dinner.

Er...yeah...that's it!

Plus I have been craving Buffalo Chicken Dip for months. 

I'll try to take some pics and put a post up about it next week.

Until then - have a SAFE and HAPPY holiday weekend.

If you are looking for something to make for your NYE party, check out the categories to your left.

I am still working on getting the printable recipe link on all the food posts, but I probably have 50% done (see the very bottom of each post and click on "Printable Recipe") are a few of my favorites that I would recommend:

In charge of the appetizer? Deviled Eggs and Buffalo Chicken Dip just not your thing?

How about:

or - if you can get your hands on some tasty tomatoes - this delicious Tomato and Basil Bruschetta!

Need a main course?

How about this elegant and delicious Chicken Parmigiana?

Feeding a crowd or on a budget?

Try this sweet and savory (and easy!) Pulled BBQ Pork with Creamy Coleslaw!

Or, why not have a FIESTA with my Spicy Shredded Chicken stuffed inside of a Tostada or Enchiladas?

Browse through the categories - there is something for everyone!

Here's to a very happy and healthy 2011!
