Recipe Roundup: New Years Eve

by | Dec 27, 2018 | Recipes | 0 comments

A few weeks ago I introduced you to something I was going to do on the website, called Recipe Roundup.

While I love to cook, they are not always my own recipes. I have a few people I consistently follow that have tried and true recipes that match my style of eating. One thing I plan to do on this website is share some of my favorite products and recipes. There isn’t much point to me in wasting time re-creating the wheel. Instead, I hope you will find me as a valuable resource, who helps you filter and test out products and recipes.

In honor of the various holidays and celebrations throughout the year, I will share a few of our family’s favorite recipes that will hopefully help you plan your event.

New Year’s Eve Recipe Roundup

  1. Apricot Zingers
  2. Beef Queso Dip
  3. Sausage Balls (I used less cheese)
  4. Gluten Free Breadsticks (you can skip the almonds and serve with your favorite marinara sauce)
  5. Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus – see below
  6. Fruit Tray with Creamy Lemon Dip (I cut honey to ⅛ cup)
  7. Charcuterie Board – see below
  8. Almond Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies
  9. Dry Farm Bubbles


Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 slice prosciutto per 2-4 asparagus spears
  • 2-3 ounces cream cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  • Working with one slice of prosciutto at a time, cut in half. Add small smear of cream cheese to each half slice and then wrap prosciutto around 1-2 asparagus spears (depending on size and thickness). 
  • Repeat with remaining asparagus and prosciutto. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. 


Prosciutto should be very thinly sliced. You could substitute very thin slices of ham as well. Cream cheese easier to spread if at room temperature. 


Ideas for a Charcuterie Board

  • Paleovalley turkey or beef meat sticks (use code EMBRACEWELLNESS15 for 15% off)
  • Cheese – couple regular and spreadable varieties
  • Simple mills crackers 
  • All things pickled: peppadew peppers, asparagus, olives
  • Jarred roasted red peppers
  • Spreads: olive tapenade, jam
  • Cucumbers
  • Nuts
  • Fruit: grapes, apples

I will be snuggled up on the couch, or quite frankly probably in bed, but for all you out celebrating this New Years Eve, hopefully you found some inspiration for your get together! Have a safe New Years Eve, however you choose to spend it!
