New Years Eve Menu

2022 is almost upon us and we need an epic New Years Eve menu to celebrate the new year!

Going out on New Years Eve is MAJORLY overrated so I’m thrilled to not even consider it this year. It’s all about hosting a little soiree at home and this year it’s just me, Thomas, Poppy and a few very close friends. I’ll be cooking up a storm so obviously I’ve rounded up a bunch of great bites and drinks to make it the best and easiest night if you’re planning to do the same. Lots of dishes can be made ahead, some require no actual cooking and they are exactly what you want to be eating while you ring in the new year!!

Savory things:


Parmesan Arancini from (@whatsgabycookin)

Thyme and Garlic Baked Camembert

Cheesy Artichoke Dip 

Brie Stuffed Mushrooms

Loaded Guacamole

Cheese Board

Jalapeño Bacon Loaded Potatoes

Loaded Hummus

Fried Ravioli

Garlic Wedge Fries

Crudité Bar

Hot Caprese Dip

    How do you get all that done before a party and have it ready on time?! This is something i seriously struggle with as a hostess! We’re away for NYE but I want to have a New Years party after we get back just to make all these recipes haha

    I love your info but would like more enter ideas with healthy veggies. I’ve so overdosed on sweets and carbs.
    Trader Joe’s is the best!

  21. Ann L Sanders

    I adore your blog and all your recipes.
    Never a flop and easily adaptable to a Vegan lifestyle. Thanks Gabby!

    NYE is best at home!!!! For so many years my husband (now passed away) we enjoyed so much being home to see the new year in. You get to have anything you want and make it so special. Whether it is just the two of you or family & children included of any age (we had many age ranges) it is just fabulous and adorable while at home. So special for you allowing us to see all of the wonderful recipes you share with us. Will be making lots and saving the others for another beautiful occasion to make. Thanks so very much Gaby…. Happy New Year to you & your family
