Ultimate Recipe Swap

This week ends in New Year’s, so it seemed appropriate that we swap recipes we enjoy this time of year. For our family we don’t do any particularly “lucky” foods. I’ve read those lists of beans and collard greens and what have you. We’ve never done that.

I guess since those weren’t things our moms made for us, we don’t know what we’re missing.

Instead, for our New Year’s Eve at home, we have a Mocktail Party. Dinner is finger foods with bubbling apple juice to drink. It’s one of our favorite meals.

Here’s what I hope to include this year:

Garlic Brie Bread
Potstickers and Sauce

Chips and Salsa
Summer Rolls
Veggies, Dips, Crackers, and Cheese

And of course we top it off with a Happy New Year Cake.

What do you serve for New Year’s?

A new schedule for URS is now available. Check it out.

  1. Never heard of collards and beans, at my house it was pork and sauerkraut. My husband doesn’t care for either, but I still make it. It’s tradition and it brings good luck for the new year. Of course, that is New Year’s Day, not New Year’s Eve. Will have to post up our Crab Cakes that we have every year.

    1. We love pork and sauerkraut! My kids would love to have that for New Year’s, but hubs is not a fan. I never knew it was a New Year’s tradition!

  2. Your Spring Rolls are so pretty and look delicious. Thank you for sharing and hosting us today, you and your family have a very Happy New Year!

  3. Your New Year’s Eve recipes look and sound really yummy! We normally have a buffet supper New Year’s Eve and the red cabbage coleslaw recipe I have linked up is one of the star dishes. Even folks who don’t like red cabbage seem to like it! Thank you for hosting, and Happy New Year to you and your family.

  4. We eat plenty at the New Years Eve party we go to. So, we have decided to forgo a dinner at home this year.
    We were talking about making a special New Year’s Day meal and having family over next year. Your meal sounds delicious!

  5. We do the same in our house, but we call it “Finger Food Fantasy” and add steamed shrimp to the mix. On New Year’s Day my husband makes Black-eyed Pea Soup. Thanks for hosting. Happy New Year!

  6. We do all finger foods on New Years Eve and my husband, who is a manager with Publix, brings buys fresh!! shrimp from the seafood guy! YUM! Big treat!

  7. You had me at “brie”… yum!! Love the pic with the cake. At first glance, I thought, “Hey, wait a minute, there’s an extra girl there…” And then I thought, “Gee, those kids look familiar…” How fun it must have been to celebrate with Crystal’s sweet family too! 🙂 (BTW, I cannot WAIT to see FishChick2 in this year’s pics… that little chickie’s personality just tickles me!)

  8. I am all about the fun at our house. This year for New Year’s Day I have decided to make a “here’s to good luck and good health for the year” dinner. Vegetarian style. All in fun. Greens, beans, grapes, “fake” sausage, cornbread and last but not least the cake. I am using your idea as a yearly mile marker, it was such a fantastic idea it had to be used!!!

  9. We have a fondue party. One year, I found a bunch of brand new fondue pots at the thrift store for $2 each and it inspired me to try it out. Now we do it every year on NYE. My kids think it’s so fun, and you’d be surprised at the variety of veggies they’ll eat if they get to dip them in cheese first! And chocolate fondue for dessert? Yes, please!

  10. I love the recipes listed here. I’ve been searching for some yummy idea’s to shake up our usual New Years celebration and I’ve found a few here! Thanks!

  11. The Chipolte Raspberry Sauce from Costco(Fischer & Wieser brand) over brie or over cream cheese and served with crackers is so good! Impressive and easy for New Year’s!
