129 New Year’s Eve Recipes

129 New Year's Eve Recipes - Everything from appetizers, snacks, main dishes and dessert! | browneyedbaker.com

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to ring in 2015 and even crazier to think that any day now we are going to to become parents!

Are you a “stay in and bang pots and pans” type of New Year’s Eve partier, or do you prefer to go out on the town? We are definitely stay-in folks, opting for cozy and quiet New Year’s Eves instead of wild and raucous ones (even when I’m not almost ten months pregnant!). If you’re of our ilk and are planning to spend your New Year’s Eve at home with friends and family, you’re going to need food! I’ve rounded up some of the best party and get-together recipes on the site, as well as some nice dinners and desserts in case you’re planning a more special meal for two or four.
