New Year's Eve is the perfect occasion to throw a party. It doesn't have to extravagant or costly, it can simply be an opportunity to get together with friends and family and eat some delicious food. To keep your menu stress-free, I suggest turning to a combination of both hot and cold appetizers and supplementing the table with foods that require no preparation at all (consider a cheese board with nuts and dried fruit). In addition, most of these appetizer recipes can be prepared in advance so come New Year's Eve, you can join the party with the rest of the guests.
