Come to your senses from the outside (with her bath salts and foot soaks), and let Sensational Seasonings nourish your insides. Give away salts, soaks and sprays as party favors, and then whip up something quick and impressive with the seasonings! Many suggestions are listed on the products themselves. Here are some more to expand your holiday parties:

  • Blend into cream cheese or soft silken tofu and serve with Arizmendi breads
  • Knead into your quiche crusts
  • Buy nuts from Winters Fruit Tree. Drizzle some olive oil and Sensational Seasonings on them and bake for a few minutes. Serve in Jeff May’s Smokin Pottery
