Expert Tips

If you have trouble finding sun-dried tomato spread or simply prefer a different flavor combination, use 1/3 cup honey mustard in its place. If you don't have bacon, 1/4 cup Bac Os® bacon flavor chips is a great substitute!

Take a break at least one hour before the guests arrive to enjoy a relaxing bath before getting dressed.
