The Season's Best Small Bites

The holiday entertaining season is in full swing! I love getting together with friends to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s – not only because I get to see people I love, but because there’s always plenty of nibbles.

Parties featuring small bites instead of full meals make for a relaxed atmosphere and allow for a wide variety of foods. There’s always something to make every palate happy, and the small portions make it easy to visit with friends instead of being stuck at a table for a five-course dinner.
