Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
"Move the meal. Changing the setting is a wonderful way to elevate an ordinary meal. Add a few sparkling lights and move your meal under the stars. Or set up an impromptu table in front of the fireplace. You don’t have to have a lot of space to make the setting interesting. Sometimes just turning down the lights and lighting a few candles can set the perfect tone."
