Its no secret, I love appetizers so I wanted to share with you some of my favorite appetizers found on my blog.  Maybe you will be inspired to make one of these for your New Year’s Eve party!

I love making a meal of small bites.  I think my grandmother would have thought the same way! When we were at my Aunt Ann’s for Christmas my cousin Ryan was asking what kind of pie should he have….and I told him “do what Nanny would have done….have a tiny piece of each!”  Um, there were 3 pies and guess what?  Most of us did just that!
