Jyl.Ferris's picture
This is the first part of the Thanksgiving series. We start with homemade stuffing. Other videos include secrets to a moist turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie and butternut squash soup. My kids will not eat at any other relatives homes because they love my turkey and stuffing. I always have to make more than fits in the turkey. The secret is the bread. I use onion rolls or challah which are both eggy breads. When you cook for yourself you can Save Money, Eat Healthier, Live Greener and Have Fun!
