Budget Conscious New Year's Recipes

December 28, 2009 10:51:33 AM PST
Chef Julius Russell has put together a great menu for budget-conscious party planners. In addition to the fun party dishes, we will dress the set with NYE party favors, affordable champagne & flutes, and other decorative items. - An affordable option to Champagne is sparking wine such as Cava (Spain) and Prosecco (Italy). Both are great for mixing to make Champagne Cocktails, which stretches the serving per bottle.

- Miniatures are great all around. Sliced mini-baguettes are great substitutes for crackers and as we have here, mini-tacos allow you to serve more people for less.
