The last big holiday of the season is upon us, so it's time for another menu guide (see previous here and here). New Year's Eve is a little different because people tend to focus on cocktails and finger foods rather than a large meal. However, this year my boyfriend and I are staying in and having a private celebration that's still full of decadence and over-indulgence (and yes, I'll still be wearing my sequined dress and heels). I've got you covered whether you're hosting a large party or something more intimate so that you won't be hungry when the clock strikes twelve.
