Christmas music is no longer on the radio 24 hours a day, Santa has come and gone, gifts have been opened, food you've spent hours making has been consumed with family and friends, and you're starting to think about taking those Christmas decorations down. Hold that thought! New Years Eve 2012 is just a few days away. It's time to hit the grocery store and heat up those ovens because the second cooking marathon of the holiday season is about to begin.
I'm hosting our NYE celebration with a few close friends this year so I've been carefully pondering my menu and punch recipe for the past few days. Here's what I'll be serving; recipes to follow in the next few days as the prep begins.
Rosemary infused white bean dip
Crab & artichoke dip
Cranberry walnut brie tartlets
and to drink: Champagne Punch
