It’s hard to believe that Christmas is less than a week away and then of course New Year’s will be right on the heels of Christmas.  That means that in the next week and a half there are going to be a lot of celebrations going on.  Which means that there will be a lot of food being made!  I’m sure many of you already have a freezer full of Christmas goodies.

In addition to all of the cookies and treats, there always seems to be a need for appetizers this time of year.  We always host Christmas Eve at our house and I like to serve a few appetizers before dinner and on Christmas Day I’m usually asked to bring an appetizer to the celebration at my in-law’s house.   When New Year’s Eve rolls around, I don’t entertain very often, but we usually go to a party in our neighborhood and again, I need to have a great appetizer to bring.

I’m sure many of you are making appetizers for your celebrations as well.  If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas here is a list of 10 of my favorite appetizers.  If something looks good, just click on the link for the recipe.
