Whether your New Year’s festivities include planning a big cocktail party or hosting a simple dinner, odds are you’ll want something to feed your guests over the hours as they count down to 2013. Here are 25 easy-to-make little dishes to choose from — they’re not recipes really, but ideas you can adapt to make your own. No matter whether you’re planning fancy hors d’oeuvres or are looking for some simple nibbles to keep the natives from getting restless as the clock winds down, we should have you covered. Many can be prepared hours — even a day or two — in advance. A couple — the jumbo shrimp and quick-pickled carrots — require a day or so of marinating. At least one, the baked brie, needs a little oven love before the guests arrive. Nothing complicated, just a little planning.
