My Mom's Famous Thanksgiving Stuffing

No matter how hard I try to plan my Thanksgiving menu, I know the star of the meal will be my Mom's Famous Thanksgiving stuffing.  As a child, my brother and I duked it out on many occasions for the last delicious spoonful.  And who could blame us -- her stuffing is pure magic.

We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving -- filled with inspiration, loved ones and family traditions.
