2016 is almost over. For many, it was a success and one to be proud of. But for just as many, it’s a year we’d rather forget than dwell on. If this New Year you’re hoping for a bit of luck to springboard you into 2017, why not indulge your superstitious side with some foods said to bring luck?

First up, this Southern Black Eyed Peas dish using left-over smoked turkey. The beans are meant to resemble coins, bringing luck in wealth. Next up are some Meaty Collard Greens which are said to resemble money, bringing luck in wealth as well. Finish off the evening with cake, but not just any cake. A ring-shaped cake, symbolizing coming full circle, is what should be on your buffet table when the clock strikes midnight. Try this simple, but beautiful, Vanilla Bundt Cake with Icing to ring in the new year with an optimistic heart. Happy New Year, from ours to yours.
