Ringing in the New Year in Style!

Well Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012 and we can say we’re going to do a lot of things but right now I’ve decided to just do one day at a time and be better then I was before!  Well it’s what I’m going with right now, stop giggling and just let me live in a little bliss for today .. hehe!
My friend had us over to her house for a little get together for the count down and I made a few things to share.  I can never go to a party empty handed.
I took this Apple Pie Cucake and tweaked it a bit to include Sparkling Apple Cider.  I thought it was perfect for the new year!

Then I had to make some dips. The first dip was a Weight Watcher Feta & Spinach Dip.

Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a wonderful year and many more blessings to come this new year!  What did you do for the New Year?  Did you make anything yummy?


  1. Yummy! I'm so hungry this morning, too. You're making it worse. LOL.

    Happy 2012!

  2. I shouldn't be looking at food posts since I am living on yogurt, pudding, and milkshakes right now, but everything looks delish, especially those cupcakes! Have a wonderful 2012!

  3. Your cupcakes look beautiful! I really need to try the weight watcher's hot artichoke dip. I've heard nothing but good things about that recipe. Maybe I'll put it together for our next get together.

  4. I need to try that feta & spinach dip! We tried a few healthier apps for NYE and this one would have been a great addition! Maybe for Super Bowl? Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year to you and your family. I hope it's a good one for you!

  6. Those cupcakes sound wonderful. I am just now getting rid of all of my holiday goodies so I will have to put them on the back burner for awhile.

    I fixed ham 'n' beans and cornbread for the new year. New Year's Eve I was in bed by 10:30PM.

  7. I LOVE artichoke dip! Happy new year Alexis!
    Blessings, Joanne

  8. Nope we just had junk food not yummy weight watchers food.. It looks amazing.. Have a great night..

  9. It all sounds so yummy. The muffins sound tasty and I love dips. That's a lot to bring to a party. Your a nice guest.

  10. Those dips and cupcakes look amazing! I'll have to keep the dips in mind for the Super Bowl :-)

  11. "Be better than I was before". Simple and perfect. Love it. :)

  12. Honestly you are like my mummy idol for 2012. You are so imaginative and creative with food etc. I need to be more of a domestic goddess and cook better, healthier foods (from scratch not the freezer lol).

    I went to Wales for NYE to stay with fam. Was fun but I missed having it at my house. I was glad of the break as I had hosted Christmas by myself this year and was lovely catching up with the family. Didn't like the 5 hour drive mind you lol. Take care xx

  13. wow im the same :) i cant not show up empty handed either! The dips sound wonderful darls! I was glad for 2011 to be done with altho it wasnt a "bad" yr it wasnt the best yr either in a round about way...i was and still am excited about 2012 it has been good to us so far!
