by Rachel Withers


Having people over for New Years and want to show off your best #adulting skills?

We’ve compiled some of our favorite party food ideas to help you say good riddance to 2016 and ring in a delicious 2017. Auld lang YUM.


Homemade Smoke And Spice Almond Hummus – because hummus will always be there for you.



Barbecue Popcorn, Toasted Ravioli and Chocolate Krispie Nut Bites? That’s some finger-lickin’-good finger food



Why not follow that up with Sweet Potato Apples With Candied Pecans?



If you’ve got the time: tamales. Yes please.



Really impress the crew with this Apple Beet Salad With Lemon Tamari Vinaigrette, Baked Hazelnut Cheese, And Sesame Mustard.



Or go easy on yourself (it’s been a hard year) with this Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Frittata



Fried chicken. ‘Nuff said. 



Or pretend you’re in another country, any country that didn’t just elect Trump, with our 5 Delicious International Food recipes.

As you move on to dessert, could anything be more fitting for 2016 than Poop Emoji Cupcakes?

But don’t forget about the wins progressives have had in recent years (and will keep on having). Colombia, Greenland and Gibraltar all legalized same sex marriage in 2016, and Finland will see it introduced in 2017. #lovewins with these super easy rainbow jigglers.




Last but not least: start your New Years health kick early, by making sure to get your daily serving of fruit…pizza. Covered in chocolate. You deserve it.
