Alright! Christmas is over, the pressure is off - it is almost the New Year and it is time to party!!
Finger foods, appetizers, fizzy cocktails and anything that is fun, fun, fun! We want you to get down with your bad self and whip up some party fare!

Search through Giada's recipes, from her books or online, for something fun for your finger food party. Maybe some crostini, or dips, or Bellinis and antipasti! Anything that says party to you.

Make it and post it on or by January 2nd. Link up with Mr. Linky, below, and leave a comment so we don't miss any of your fabulous party creations!

In the meantime, we hope you had a fantabulous holiday, and that Santa was good to you. And that you have had a chance to check out the wonderful Potluck creations from last week!

Need more info on Mr. Linky or on how to participate in I Heart Cooking Clubs? Please refer to the Welcome Page for more information.

Fun post Natashya--I love the black & white retro look.

I made my pupu today but want to see if I can muster up a drink to go with it. ;-)

Kim said...

Love this post! I'm ready to get down with my bad self :P

Heather S-G said...

ParTay!! I'm lovin' the retro feel, too :D

I got down with my bad self by making a fairly healthy dish. Which I guess means I'm not so bad after all!

Lyndsay Wells said...

I got her latest cookbook for Christmas so am excited to go with this one. I'm planning to do my entire New Year's eve menu a la Giada.

Deb in Hawaii said...

Just posted a pupu/drink combo--Toasted Cecchi, Almonds, and Pistachios (+ Cranberries) with Apple Cider Shandies. Both were great!

Happy New Year Everyone! ;-)

Nico said...

I made the same lemon ricotta cookies Deb made a couple of weeks ago, except I used yogurt! so good :)

Couscous & Consciousness said...

Hey everyone - sorry I haven't been around for a couple of weeks, but you can always count on me to make it to a party!! I made Cranberry & Pomegranate Bellinis - will definitely be making these again :-)

Kim said...

Sure feels good to get back in the kitchen. Just posted my artichoke and bean bruschetta.

I love the savory cheesecake Natashya. Looks wonderful!

Happy New Year Ya'll!
