Spicy Lentil Soup with Buttered Bread by Joy the Baker
So, I hear lentils are a really, really, ridiculously lucky food. So, I should eat it on New Year’s, right? In my opinion, lentils are the new black, and they just might be my new bff, so yes I plan on eating them. However, finding them on New Year’s Day in my family’s kitchen is going to be pretty much impossible. Never gonna happen. Not unless there is a slab of butter involved. Maybe I could get them to try this hearty bowl of lentils with chicken sausage and an array of spices. Plus, there is a generous helping of Parmesan cheese on top which is a sacred vessel in my family. Served with a loaf of crusty, hot, buttered bread, this dish is a winner. Remember, lentils…the new black.
Coffee Glazed Donuts by Epicurious
Donuts are lucky. Looks like I will be eating here for the New Year. Just give me a glazed cake donut and I am set. You already know how I feel about coffee, so you can just imagine my excitement as I tried to wrap my brain around a donut actually glazed with coffee. O mah be-jeezus! I have died and gone to heaven. Serve these on New Years morning with your fave cup of Joe. It is the best way to begin the New Year. I promise.
Champagne Cupcakes by Eat Live Run
Champagne is by far my drink of choice. And I am not just talking about one New Year’s. Hell, I drink champagne every chance I get. Every day is a celebration for me so why not celebrate with a glass of champagne. Not only is there champagne in the cupcakes, but it is in the frosting too! No way! Butter + champagne =double win!

Bacon Jam by See You in the Morn
It’s that simple. Do I need to say more? I think so. This jam definitely needs to be talked up. Holy bacon on toast is all I have to say. Or in this case, Lard + carbs, say no more. Just pass the bread.
Grape Faux-caccia by Minimally Invasive
Grapes are lucky. I love grapes. This “bread” is gluten free, so naturally you know how I feel. This recipe is definitely what’s up. My advice: eat some grapes, embedded in some warm bread, feel lucky, and sleep well at night. Amen.
