T-minus 6 days and counting!!

As turkey day quickly comes bounding around the weekend's corner it is time to dig through the recipe books and boxes to find yummy favorites! 

Here are a few favorites and finds!

Corn Bread Stuffing

This is one recipe that mom makes every year.  I don't actually eat it but there usually is not any left!
This recipe is tweaked from the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book from about the 70's.

1/2 lb bacon (8 to 10 slices)
1/4 cup of drippings kept in reserve
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 chopped onion
1/2 cup water
3 cups coarse corn bread crumbs
3 cups fine toast crumbs
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
2 cups chicken or turkey broth

Make before hand your cornbread according to the mix instructions. We use Jiffy and add about 1 tablespoon sugar to the mix. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In skillet cook the bacon until crisp; drain, reserving the drippings.  Crumble bacon and set aside.  To skillet, add celery, onion, and water.  Cover and cook until barely tender, about 7 minutes. 

Combine bacon, reserved drippings, vegetable mixture, corn bread crumbs, toast crumbs, sage, broth and toss well.  Bake covered in a casserole pan for 30 minutes.  Makes 8 servings or enough stuffing for a 8 lb turkey. 

A recipe find!

One of my favorite things is looking though my mom's recipe box.  It is so much fun to see who recipes came from and their handwriting.  So I was excited to find this recipe from our grandmother!

I love her stationary! 


  1. I love the old recipe from Granny Dee! Have you made them or are you going to make them for Thanksgiving?

    1. I have not got the chance to make them yet. I did not know about the recipe until just the other day! I don't know with all the other baking going on if I will have time to try it out next week. If you do let me know how it goes.

  2. Thanks for the recipes! The stuffing looks good!
    Love the recipe, the stationary it too cute!
