What's tasty, delicious, looks good, and VERY EASY to prepare for a New Years Eve party? Going with a whole bunch of regular meat eaters and trying to think of a few good dishes to bring. Any suggestion guys??! Thanks in advance!

what kitchen toys do you have at yur disposal? Do you have a dehydrator?:confused: .... blender? food processor??
.... oh... and are you wanting to take food to share -- for everybody (and if so - how many people are we talking about) -- or is this just going to be your menu for the evening?

I have a blender, food processor and dehydrator. Anything simple yet beautiful and delicious I can make? I think about 10-15 are coming, not everyone is confirmed. We're all sharing so I would need to make some for everyone. It's a get together at someone's house, but I am also thinking about having a party at my own place soon too, so any idea are welcome! Thanks!

Alissa's enchiladas are very simple and even my carnivore friends looove them. You can make several a bit smaller but not teeny - and arrange them on a tray -- I love to serve mine with chopped lettuce sprinkled across the top with some cashew sour creme (a dollop) then add some chopped tomatoes, maybe a tiny bit of guacamole or sliced avo - it's quite festive and beautiful... and soooo delicious too...
the other thing I love to serve at parties is the spicy tacos - although that's a bit more work but -- you can just put out the tortillas, the spicy rawco meat and all the condiments and people can make their own tacos....
for desserts - nothing beats Alissas cannoli's ... beautiful and easy...
have fun! :D

for christmas I made spicy stuffed mushrooms for myself and my bro's vegan gf. I used the spicy taco meat recipe (use the banana search to find it). I stuffed the mushroom caps with it (the small ones, not portabellas). I put a dab of guac and some salsa on top. I bought the fresh guac and salsa at WFs so there wasn't much work, maybe 15 minutes total? I had to fight my very SAD bro to keep his grubby mitts off my plate! LOL!

That sounds sooooo good! Thanks Starfire and Zaphirah so much for responding. I'm running with no time to do any research and your experience was definitely appreciated!

I remember taking Alissa's enchilada's to my parents house....my SAD eatin' mom asked me to leave the leftovers! She loved my meal more than hers!! I think I will make these for New Years; with some walnut taco meat, dehydrated veggies....YUMMO....even some guacamole and fresh salsa!!! Sounds like a winner to me.
Starfire: which dessert recipe are you talking about? I like the crepes, and I think it's the cannoli's I haven't tried....are they made out of sprouted wheat or something (I think I was scared of them!) Am I missing something?? I'll give them a try
