Some of the best holiday cooking is the simplest

Holiday cooking and entertaining don’t have to be overly complex to impress. Here are quick, simple ways to elevate your meals for memorable experiences your friends and family will love.

Balanced seasoning.

Enhance the flavor profile of savory holiday dishes by swapping out salt and pepper and instead reaching for all-natural products such Livia’s Seasoning Salt (, a pre-blended seasoning of kosher salt, coarse-ground black pepper and garlic. For instance, it can add flair to appetizers by shaking it into the yolk mixture of deviled eggs, it can, it can season the outside of a turkey, and it can be added to stuffing and mashed potatoes.

Add pizzazz to desserts.

Give a standard dessert lineup a touch of elegance. Use fresh ginger in gingerbread cookies. Create your own crumbs for sprinkling on top of cakes. Garnish slices of pie with a mint or basil sprig or a cinnamon stick. Melt your favorite chocolate and drizzle it on anything.

Up your tablescape game.

A holiday feast is the perfect time to create a special atmosphere by breaking out your best dishes and utensils, as well as adding a few natural elements to the tablescape such as poinsettias, holly, evergreens and pine cones. Ditch the overhead lights and use candles or other warm lighting to create a soft, convivial glow.
