As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones, I'm reminded how much Thanksgiving celebrations center on food--and nostalgia.
What's the one dish that's a must-have on your family's Thanksgiving menu?
For me, it's stuffing--using my grandmother's recipe (heavy on the onions, pork sausages and Bell's Poultry seasoning.) As a child, I used to help my grandmother prepare this dish, and the flavor always brings me back to those Thanksgiving dinners she hosted at her home.
