In the south we love cornbread stuffing. I have family here who moved from Oregon and we need a great bread stuffing recipe. Any ideas? Thanks!

Of course, living in the South causes me to lean in her direction, I suppose). Now, if any of Rachel Ray's cookbooks come in a spiral-bound/comb-bound, I would be more likely to try one. I usually won't buy a cookbook unless it comes that way. They are much easier to use. As to Thanksgiving, I'm sorry, but I will be using my butter. Butter to rub down the turkey prior to cooking, butter for the mashed potatos, rolls, and corn...all of my eating and most of my baking, (remember my chocolate chip cookies?), is done with butter! I don't allow margarine or any such thing in my house. It just doesn't taste right. But, if it means anything, neither I nor my family is the size of the Deen family. And, I eat alot of salads and fruit!
Your chocolate chip cookies almost got made again today! Instead I went to the store and bought supplies to make Isabella's Flan and then Momof2dfw's eclair cake I use butter too! But I saw how Paula made donuts one time.. I was waiting for the family to drop while the cameras were still rolling

I'm sorry Isabella for taking so long to get back to you. Since the server change, I've only been able to log on three times, both times before the last twenty minutes I couldn't post messages I typed. I have no idea why it's been so difficult, then miraculously I got on this evening...
For the garlic mashed potatoes, get the garlic minced first. Five cloves for sauteeing, three to just get thrown in after all is almost done raw. Get the potatoes whipped, sautee a stick of butter with the minced five cloves until the butter melts, pour it into the mashed potatoes, then throw in the raw uncooked three cloves. Whip it all up. YUM! The purpose in throwing in some raw at the end is just like when you add some cooked bacon at the last minutes with steamed green beans...otherwise the flavor is blah and leached out. This gives it some kick without being overpowering. The amount of potatoes I did that with was 5 lbs.
The pineapple squares are easy. Just preheat oven to 400F, get a cookie sheet, wrap squares of pineapple in a bacon strip and pin it through with a toothpick. Fill the tray up, stick in the oven, and wait until the bacon is thorougly cooked. It's amazingly good!

The usual: tofurky (yes, tofurky, we don't eat birds), cranberries, pumpkin pie, potatoes, gravy, etc. Probably all the same as other people with the exception of turkey, instead it will be vegetarian options.

Thank you so much. I can't wait to try this out. I will be cooking all day on Wednesday and Thursday morning then eating the rest of the day on Thursday and all day on Friday!

There were some posts about chefs. I just wanted to say that Chef Justin Wilson was my favorite (talk about clogging some arteries, if he could fry orange juice he would). I could sit and listen to him for hours. Every dish he prepared had a story to go with it. If you never tried one of his recipes get his cook book and do it. You won't be sorry. I GARONTEE IT. He is sadly missed.

I LOVED Justin Wilson!!! He was the first t.v. chef I went crazy over. As much as I really, really like Paula Deen, I loved & adored Justin!! I bought 2 of his cookbooks from his PBS show, & I even searched out & bought one of his comedy albums (lots of the same stories from his shows). I DO miss him -- alot!!

It's true, Krispy Kreme doughnuts are toothachingly, (is that a word? ), sweet, but oh boy, are those things good, when you get them hot! Fortunately, for my waistline, the closest KK is in Pensacola, which is about 20 or so miles from me. So, it's a treat to stop, once in awhile.
