Q I am hosting a New Year's Eve party and would like appetizer recipes that can be made ahead and frozen, or just made ahead of time. Any suggestions?

- Louise


An assortment of fun appetizers is a great way to start conversations and get your guests mingling and smiling. You’ll be smiling, too, because you can make these three easy appetizers a day or two before.

Together, these appetizers make a lovely assortment that guests can easily serve themselves. Assemble Sedona Appetizer Bites the day or even the week before, freeze, and then pop them into the oven before the party. Drive blue cheese lovers wild with Blue Cheese Appetizer Tart—it can easily be made a day or two ahead and refrigerated. Create a festive & delicious centerpiece with Cheese & Shallot Party Spread—assemble this spread the day before and refrigerate until party time.

With such an amazing array of appetizers, your guests are sure to be raving well before midnight!

Happy New Year,
