As the clock ticks closer to midnight, you've gathered those nearest and dearest to you for a soirée of epic proportions. As you know, no New Year's Party is complete without a showstopping menu. This collection of party recipes, from cocktails to desserts, features all the ideas you need to put together a dinner or buffet that will surely impress your guests. Make your picks, add a classic favorite or two, and then ring in the new year with delicious bites and boozy sips.

Port of Call Punch

The muddling technique draws complex flavors from the lemon, making the beverage floral, bracing, and irresistible. A sprinkling of grated nutmeg on top adds a warm, soothing, fragrant layer to the punch, which is remarkably complex-flavored despite having only 6 ingredients. Ruby port has spent less time cask-aging than tawny port, and so is a little sweeter and fruitier, perfect in this recipe. This drink has a lower alcohol content than standard cocktails, a great quality in a punch that's meant to refresh as much as relax.

Glazed Cocktail Meatballs

These mini meatballs are perfect for holiday parties and tailgating. We made them healthier by forgoing sodium-heavy ingredients like the usual ketchup and chili sauce and including whole-grain bulgur in place of breadcrumbs. You can also serve a larger portion of these meatballs for weeknight dinner. To up the kid-friendly factor, omit the ground red pepper in the glaze and serve with mashed potatoes (à la Swedish meatballs). For a tangier glaze, substitute cranberry sauce for the grape jelly.

Foolproof Cheese Fondue

Fondue is forever tied to the kitschy themed parties of the 1960s and 70s, but the dish is worth reviving: It's a casual, fun way to entertain. Nutritionally, fondue is a great way to stretch the calorie and saturated fat content of rich cheeses over several servings without losing any melty goodness. We add evaporated milk to make the base even creamier with fewer calories and less saturated fat. Guests will keep coming back for more. Any Gruyère works wonderfully here, but the aged kind has a bigger, nuttier flavor. While a double boiler is used in many recipes, you'll need a heavy saucepan and direct heat here to activate the cornstarch and thicken the fondue. Serve with tart, crisp apples and crusty whole-grain bread.

Mini Raspberry Cheesecakes

We had the greatest success using a pan with 2 1/2-ounce cups, such as Chicago Metallic's 12-Well Mini Cheesecake Pan ($25). This pan has removable bottoms (similar to a tart pan) so that you simply push each cheesecake up to remove it. You can also bake them in a standard muffin tin; line it with foil liners for easier removal.

Grilled Chicken Skewers With Wasabi Mayo

A kicking dipping sauce adds amped up fun and flavor. Serve with Orzo with Snap Peas, Cilantro, and Peanuts for a complete meal with 46g of protein. If you use wood skewers on the outdoor grill, be sure to soak them in water before grilling to avoid burning. Make a few extra skewers to add chicken to lunches and salads the next day. The wasabi mayo adds bold flavor to simply seasoned grilled chicken and pairs well with the sweetness of honey and tang of rice vinegar. The mayo can be saved and served alongside roasted vegetables, skirt steak, or fresh grilled fish.

Lemon-Gin Sparkling Cocktails

Loosely based on the French 75, a classic cocktail of gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar, this welcoming beverage uses lemonade concentrate as a shortcut. Be sure to allow the concentrate to thaw ahead of time. You'll use almost a whole bottle of Champagne; the rest goes into the dessert. If time allows, you can use a quick simple syrup with lemon juice: Combine 3 tablespoons each of sugar, lemon juice, and water; microwave for 1 minute, and cool.

Tricolored Beet Tart

Start your holiday meal with a simple yet gorgeous beet tart, topped off with tangy goat cheese, crunchy hazelnuts, and flaky sea salt. Par-bake the crust to get a lovely raised edge (what forms the shell of your tart) and ensure that the bottom will be cooked through. If you or your guests are not beet fans, substitute sweet potatoes: Wrap 4 (4-ounce) sweet potatoes in parchment paper, and microwave at HIGH 3 minutes. Then cool, peel, and slice. You can also sub feta for goat cheese and pecans or walnuts for hazelnuts.

Bourbon-Pecan Tassies

Think of these tasty little tassies as your own personal pecan pie. They're both salty and sweet, with a hit of oaky bourbon. Whole-grain rye flour adds the perfect touch of sour to the shortbread-like crust, while toasted pecans do double duty in the crust and in the maple-splashed filling. As if that weren't enough to jingle your bell, we drizzle warm bittersweet chocolate over each bite to ensure maximum satisfaction.

Pink Grapefruit and Lychee Cocktail

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner

Pink grapefruit, a popular winter fruit, stars in this pretty beverage. Look for canned lychee fruit, which has a delicately sweet flavor, in the ethnic food aisle at the supermarket or at Asian groceries. Use the leftover lychees in a fruit salad.

Caramelized Leek and Spinach Dip

Beautifully caramelized leeks and onions cannot be rushed; resist the urge to crank up the heat. Leeks become especially silky and sweet when left to cook awhile. If they start to stick to the bottom of the pan, add a tablespoon or two of water, and stir (the liquid will evaporate during cooking). Instead of bread or crackers, serve the dip with an array of vegetables, such as baby carrots, endive leaves, radishes, diagonally sliced cucumber, and mini sweet bell peppers for a bit of freshness, color, and crunch. You'll also save calories and room for the rest of the meal.

• • Gluten-Free Tip: Many dairy products are gluten free, but some contain additives with gluten. Read the labels carefully. When in doubt, seek out products that are specifically labeled gluten free.

Peppermint Cheesecake Brownies

These moist bars feature the seasonal pairing of peppermint and chocolate. They're sure to be a hit with everyone—children included—at your holiday party.

Kale, Mushroom, and Bacon Pita Pizzas

Individual Kale, Mushroom, and Bacon Pita Pizzas couldn’t be easier or more delicious, especially with a creamy rosemary-garlic white bean spread as the base. If you think pitas are destined only for topping or dipping, think again: once toasted and blended, they add depth to the classic Spanish red pepper sauce in Kale and Mushroom Quinoa with Romesco.

The New Essentials:

Whole-Wheat Pitas - Not just for stuffing, pitas are an instant pizza base and your all-purpose bread for breadcrumbs.

Sliced Cremini Mushrooms - Meaty, no-prep mushrooms add richness and earthiness to gravies, sautés, and stir-fries.

Vanilla-Fig Champagne Sparkler

The festive combo of cinnamon, vanilla, and figs make a tasty way to welcome the New Year, but this fantastic flavor trio will also keep you celebrating all fall and winter. Cheers!

Mini Cheese Balls

Save 108 calories, 7g sat fat, and 69mg sodium per serving over a traditional cheese ball. Almond milk cream cheese is delicately nutty, with a buttery-rich texture and zero grams of sat fat. Find it at Whole Foods stores nationwide. You can substitute 1⁄3-less-fat cream cheese, which adds 1.6g sat fat to each serving.

Red Velvet Beet Cupcakes

Elegant and rich, this supermoist pillow of chocolate cake gets its color and texture from the vibrant-red, naturally sweet beet. There’s nothing artificial about this dramatically hued holiday treat coated in a dense cloud of creamy white frosting. We purée the tender beet root with buttermilk and vanilla to create a luscious cream that not only adds a light, velvety texture to the cupcake but also allows us to use less sugar, oil, and butter in the batter, saving fat and hundreds of calories. You simply can’t “beet” it.

Sesame-Soy Nut and Pretzel Mix

If any one dish is devoured quickly and constantly (usually by the fistful) throughout the holiday, it’s snack mix. Consisting of salty nuts, pretzels, and cereal doused with a Worcestershire and butter, this innocent munchie racks up sodium and calories quickly. Our healthier version gives you all the salt, crunch, and bold spices of the original with the addition of whole-grain popcorn, toasty whole-wheat cereal, and spicy wasabi peas. The peas inspired an Asian track with toasty sesame oil and reduced-sodium soy sauce, cashews, and pungent ground ginger.

Winter Sangria

Sweet clementines shine during cold winter months. Make the most of them in this festive, spiced sangria. Opt for a fruit-forward, higher acidity variety of red wine, such as grenache or tempranillo.

Goat Cheese Cheesecake Bites

Who says goat cheese is only for savory food. Creamy and luscious, goat cheese makes for the perfect ingredient in a thick, decadent cheesecake dessert. Mixed with Greek yogurt and a touch of powdered sugar, this adorable cheesecake bites are the perfect solution for using up leftover goat cheese. Topped with fruit preserves and served in pre-made mini-phyllo shells, this cute, crowd-pleasing dessert is ready in minutes.

Avocado Chicken Salad

Fresh, tasty, and delicious is how this 5-star Avocado Chicken Salad is commonly described. Mrs. Hartzell raves, “So delicious and easy! I could seriously eat this every day!” You’re not alone. We could, too. This particular recipe uses vinaigrette instead of mayonnaise but doesn’t lose its creamy texture, thanks to avocado. Salsa and fresh cilantro give this chicken salad its south-of-the-border flavors. So, instead of layering over a bed of greens, serve with tortilla chips for scooping and an added crunch.

Hasseltots with Crème Fraîche and Caviar

Photo: Hector Manuel Sanchez

This two-bite, no-fork-required appetizer is perfect for parties where guests will be juggling drinks and nibbles. Choose a sustainable, budget-friendly roe. Depending on what kind you choose, it can be affordable or break the bank. Make note of the origin to be sure you aren't buying caviar or roe from endangered fishing areas or species. We suggest Classic American White Sturgeon Caviar ($85/oz.), Paddlefish Caviar ($44/oz.), Salmon Roe ($8/oz.), and Masago ($5/oz.). Store opened caviar on ice, and use within one to two days. In a pinch, sour cream can stand in for the crème fraîche.

Mini Vegan Gingerbread Cakes

Gingerbread is the ultimate holiday treat. Sweetness and spice combine for a flavorful dessert that makes the whole house smell like Christmas. These mini bundt cakes are perfect for guests, with everyone getting their own individual treat. For extra hosting flair, wait to dust them with powdered sugar until they're presented on the dining table. The best part? Each of these totally vegan cakes comes in just under 200 calories.

Almond Butter Chocolate Truffles

Store-bought chocolates fall short compared to these homemade peanut butter and chocolate truffles. Made with almond butter and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, you can add any toppings you like, such as coconut, chopped nuts, cocoa powder, or dried fruit. For only 6 grams of sugar per serving, the options are plentiful.

Pear and Pomegranate Bellini

Raise your glass to good friends and family while knocking back this fruity holiday cocktail. Cheers!

Tangy Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Classic lemon squares can contain up to 36 grams of sugar per piece. By putting a tangy cheesecake spin on ours, we’ve cut the sugar down to only 6 grams per pop. Your sweet tooth will agree that these bars are good enough to enjoy year-round.

Mac and Cheese Bites

Feed a hungry crowd these all-star, feel-good favorites at your next party. Nothing is as comforting as melty, creamy, cheesy, comforting macaroni and cheese. Be still our hearts.

Chocolate-Chestnut Cream Bites

Allow yourself to be seduced by the nutty-sweet aroma of freshly roasted chestnuts, a true seasonal treasure. The flavor is rich and faintly sweet, with hints of caramel. Try our picture-perfect phyllo dough poppers. For an elegant presentation, spoon the filling into a piping bag, and then fill the shells.

Cider Sangria

White wine may eventually lose its flavor after uncorking, but why waste it? Here, we perk up leftover wine with sparkling apple-cranberry cider and add fresh apples, pears, and grapes for an autumn-themed spin on the popular drink.

10 Recipes for the Perfect New Year's Eve Party

We tend to think that the best New Year&rsquos Eve party is the one you host yourself&mdashunless, of course, you&rsquore partial to ride-share surge pricing and muscling your way through the bar for a $15 vodka soda. Wouldn&rsquot you rather spend the night surrounded by your own personal A-list, sipping on your preferred bottle of bubbly, and dancing to your favorite tunes of the year? To help round out your celebratory soirée, we&rsquove gathered 10 recipes for festive appetizers fit for ringing in a new decade.

The buttery, slightly acidic dough in this recipe is a versatile base for any tart topping, but 2014 Best Chef: Northwest winner Naomi Pomeroy recommends slow-roasted tomatoes and a soft, fragrant cheese.

These walnut and herb&ndashfilled bites, called badrigiani in their native Georgia, will give your vegan guests yet another reason to celebrate this NYE (and even the omnivores will have to admit they&rsquore pretty darn tasty).

Chefs Boot Camp alum and 2019 Best Chef: Southwest winner Charleen Badman utilizes store-bought wonton wrappers, a highly seasoned lamb filling, and exceedingly bright condiments for these crowd-pleasing dumplings.

No hors d&rsquooeuvre spread is complete without some variation on deviled eggs. This time of year, we prefer these beet-dyed morsels with seasonally appropriate sweet-potato chips, courtesy of Chefs Boot Camp alum Janine Booth.

This #WasteNot recipe from Paul Fehribach of Chicago&rsquos Big Jones transforms leftover fish and rice into a deeply satisfying app. Serve with aïoli or rémoulade for bonus points.

Pimento Cheese Hand Pies (pictured above)

I mean, how hard do we really need to sell these? With a traditional pie crust and homemade pimento cheese, 2019 Outstanding Chef winner Ashley Christensen has crafted what might be the perfect bite.

The North African&ndashinspired spice mix on these skewers pairs delectably with a cooling raisin&ndashcucumber raita. Omit the couscous to turn them into a perfectly passable hors d&rsquooeuvre.

These classic potstickers from 2018 Best Chef: Northeast winner Karen Akunowicz are pretty much a guaranteed hit. Make sure to steal a couple out of the pan for yourself, since they&rsquore not likely to last long once they hit the table.

And of course, we couldn&rsquot forget about dessert! What happens when two perfect confections join forces? Make these just-sweet-enough, marshmallow-filled morsels to find out.

Here&rsquos one for the savory-toothed dessert naysayers. Five-time James Beard Award winner Dorie Greenspan whips the Japanese spice blend into a classic French meringue for this perfectly balanced treat.

Beer Dip

  • 3 (8 ounce) packages of softened cream cheese
  • 1 package of Dry mix - Ranch Dressing (like Hidden Valley)
  • 1/2 -3/4 can of beer for 3 packages of cream cheese (I used Sam Adam's Boston Lager, you want a full bodied lager for flavor)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (preferably finely grated)
  • Bacon bits (optional garnish)

To start, mix the cream cheese, dressing and beer in a large bowl until you reach your desired creamy consistency. Next, mix in 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese. Once blended, transfer into a serving dish and top with the remainder of the cheese.

At this point you can either serve it, or place in the refrigerator overnight. I prefer to let it sit overnight so the flavors are more pronounced. Prior to serving, garnish with the bacon bits. This recipe serves 12. Enjoy with pretzels or Frito scoops!

11 New Year’s Eve Plant-Based Party Recipes

It’s time to celebrate that brand new golden year just around the corner with a festive, plant-powered party! Enjoy some of my sparkliest, prettiest, plant-based recipes perfect for your holiday celebration with my New Year’s Eve Plant-Based Party Recipes.

11 New Year’s Eve Plant-Based Party Recipes

If you’re looking for a light, herbal cocktail—I’ve got your number with this aromatic champagne sparkler. It’s the perfect drink to showcase for New Year’s. And with less than 100 calories per serving, you’ll feel indulged without the indulgence.

I’m sharing the perfect traditional recipe to “healthify” your festive party. Pâté is a traditional spread made from animal liver, butter, mayo and spices. I took this idea and turned it into a healthy, completely plant-based (vegan) version in my Eggplant Pecan Pâté, which calls upon some of the same classic flavors—mustard, thyme, allspice—to create a savory, creamy spread that works wonderfully well as a party appetizer.

I love adding a new twist to hummus. And this green pea hummus is just the thing. The addition of peas adds a warm, spring green flair to this classic hummus. Not to mention the addition of more fiber, protein, and phytochemicals found in those petite peas. Making your own homemade hummus is a cinch—just throw these 6 ingredients (not including pantry staples) into the blender or food processor, and whiz them up to make creamy, delicious hummus in no time.

Are you in love with this plant-powered dish as much as I am? I still remember the first time I tasted Buffalo Cauliflower in a cool, trendy restaurant in Silver Lake a few years ago. And ever since then it’s been popping up on restaurant menus all over the place. Unfortunately, many of those Buffalo Cauliflower dishes at restaurants (as well as the Internet) are hardly healthy. I did some research on how to make this divine, spicy dish, and discovered that many classic recipes are loaded down with butter and oils. So, I created a lighter, oven-baked version in this Healthy Buffalo Cauliflower with Ranch Dip recipe, that’s still rich in flavor, I promise! Make a batch and watch these babies disappear!

Completely plant-based (vegan), the soup is quick and easy to make. Just roast the squash in the oven or on a grill, sauté the veggies and herbs in a pot with broth, and then whiz it all up in a blender. Garnish with crunchy, nutty hazelnuts, fresh herbs, balsamic vinegar, and EVOO to make the soup really sing. And, if you have a smoker, try smoking the squash to add a hint of sweet-smokiness to the soup.

Here’s a fun, hearty twist on a classic tabbouleh. Whip up this recipe as a rustic side dish for your party menu. Make it gluten-free by substituting a gluten-free grain.

A German-style potato salad is simple, tangy and served warm. I added a pop of brightness with the addition of another root vegetable—beets. This easy, wholesome German Potato Beet Salad is the perfect complement to your party table.

If you’re trying to shine the light on plant foods this holiday, try making a plant-based entrée alternative. One of my favorite options is veggie “meatballs”—savory little balls filled with the goodness of beans, grains, vegetables, and herbs. These crispy veggie balls are filled with the earthy, holiday flavors of golden beets, white beans, sage, and hazelnuts. Serve them with this easy, plant-based almond crema dip flavored with cranberries and sage.

This recipe for Sage White Bean Veggie Balls with Pomegranate Mandarin Sauce is perfect for your New Year’s Eve appetizer platter. These little veggie ball disappear so quickly—even my carnivore friends snatch them up. If you have extras, you can freeze them for later on. The sauce, made with pomegranate and mandarin orange, is just the perfect amount of sweet and tart, offering a wonderful accompaniment for the earthy flavors of the veggie balls.

Who doesn’t love roasted Brussels sprouts these days? These cruciferous veggies have gone from hated to adored over the past couple of years. And the chief reason is the discovery that these petit choux (small cabbages) roast up so nicely. This easy winter roasted recipe calls upon maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, cranberries, hazelnuts, red onions, and rosemary to really bring on the flavor. These Maple and Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts will be one of your favorite dishes at your holiday party.

These easy Tollhouse Pan Cookies are completely plant-based. Just pat the dough into a baking sheet and slice them into irregular squares for a simple, delicious treat. They’re super served warm fresh out of the oven!
