This is my go-to list of appetizers for New Year’s Eve food and for game-day food.
On New Year’s Eve my family always serves an array of appetizers in lieu of cooking any one main dish. This is one of my very favorite traditions and I love the excuse to dig into these easy and delicious appetizers.
I feel the same excitement on Super bowl Sunday when we prepare a bunch of finger food for the big game. Although we’re twins, one major difference between Liz and I is our love for sports. We both like playing sports, but she is way more into watching sports than I am. I’m the kind of sports fan who only likes to watch the big games.
I get excited about the Super Bowl, the NBA playoffs, and other big games, mostly because I like the excitement behind a big game, and I like to throw parties and make fun food! Everyone knows the Super Bowl is all about food and appetizers!
