From People.com – Nicole’s Holidays in Style Collection and gluten free gingerbread cookies:

In Nicole Richie‘s world, your dining room always has to be ready for company. “On any given night, Joel will bring home some rapper to have family dinner with us,” the star says of husband Joel Madden.

For a celeb who’s into design and cooking, that means the table needs to look as good as the food tastes. And now, you can mimic Richie’s chic mixed-metal style on your wintry tablescape: The designer just launched a holiday collection with Joss & Main featuring everything from classic white dinnerware and pillar candles to spunky glasses splashed with Moroccan-style prints and miniature mercury glass trees with antique white finishes.

The beauty in the collection is that you can mix and match basically anything and still come out with an elegant table—hello, Thanksgiving, Christmas and any other time this season you need to entertain.

Richie also gave PEOPLE the recipe for her go-to holiday indulgence: “homemade gluten-free gingerbread cookies!” Just snag a bag of gluten-free flour from any grocery store and you’ll be ready to rock ‘n’ roll out that dough; cut it into your favorite shapes and soon you’ll have a batch of spicy, crunchy cookies you won’t want to share with Santa.

Pair with your favorite eggnog—another favorite Richie indulgence!

Nicole Richie’s Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies:
2½ cups gluten-free baking flour
1½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup molasses
½ cup solid shortening

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Set aside.

2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine molasses and shortening and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

3. Stir the dry ingredients into the cooled molasses/shortening mixture until a thick dough forms. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours.

4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Turn out dough onto a well-floured surface, roll to about ¼-inch thick and cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheet and bake for about 8 minutes, or slightly less if you like your gingerbread soft.
