This month, "Cooking Light" threw its first ever "Light Up the Night" bash in New York City. Some of the country's best chefs and restaurants served up gourmet bites that were delicious and healthy. We tried some of the tasty finger-foods and here are our favorites. Together they'd make the perfect menu for the beginning of fall.

Serve this light ceviche first at your party. If you don't want to use all of the coconut milk, substitute half of it for coconut water. The coconut water cuts out some of the fat without sacrificing flavor.

A store-bought crust cuts the prep time of this pizza in half. Cut it into small pieces for a cocktail party or serve it up as-is for an easy dinner.
