At EatingWell we take off the week between Christmas and New Year's. The past few years I've spent this week skiing with friends in Colorado, but this year my husband and I decided to have a "stay-cation" instead, so we'll be snug at home in Vermont.
No matter where I am, my plans for this time of year always include a lot of fun with friends and plenty of good food. I like to start get-togethers right with super-easy, healthy and delicious appetizers.
Here are 10 of my favorite easy appetizers:
1. Mississippi Spiced Pecans-Yes, any spiced nut is great for an appetizer, but pecans happen to be my favorite. Plus the combo of salty and sweet and herbs in this recipe is just amazing.
2. Caviar-Stuffed New Potatoes-Look for American farmed caviar for a sustainable choice for these elegant little nuggets.
TO MAKE: Boil red potatoes; chill. Slice off one end for a base. Hollow out a small "bowl" in the other end and fill with caviar. Garnish with crème fraîcheRead More »from 10 party-perfect appetizers
