What We’re Loving: Dishes for a New Year’s Eve Dinner Party


No Comments


I love going out on New Year’s Eve – partaking in champagne, revelry, noisemakers … did I mention champagne? My husband and I have stayed home for the past two years, however, and that has been pretty great, as well. Hosting a New Year’s fete in our home allows us to spend meaningful time with friends, eat great food, and no one has to stand out in the cold fighting for a cab at the end of the night.

Now that we have our daughter, dining in on New Year’s Eve may be the new normal for us. And with these great recipes, my menu will be set for the next few years at least!

Try this Grill-Roasted Chicken for a unique spin on a classic. {from The Year in Food}


Seared Lamb Chops with Olive Chimichurri and A Warm Mushroom Salad are guaranteed to impress your guests. {from Tartlette}


Cod with Miso Butter Baked in Parchment is simple and delicious. {from Broad Appetite}


Winter Herb Pasta with Roasted Vegetables is great for vegetarians and carnivores alike! {from Not Without Salt}


Mussels with Shallots and Beer are the perfect casual fare for a crowd. {from Dinner Was Delicious}
