  1. This was by far the best stuffing I have ever eaten! I made it with the Apricot-glazed turkey for Thanksgiving. My mother loved it, as did everyone else! The flavors were perfect to go with turkey! Everyone asked that I please make this stuffing every year, so I just may do that! Thanks!
  2. this was a nice change from traditional stuffing. I served it with an apricot glazed turkey and it was a wonderful combination.


Hello! I am a thirty-nine year old mom with two children. I am originally from Xenia, Ohio where I have lived longer than anywhere, but have lived in many different places. Ohio is one of my favorite states...I love the different seasons here! I love to remodel and decorate homes, when I have the time, and of course, I'm very passionate about cooking!! There is a long line of great cooks in my family and I am trying to put together a cookbook for them, from recipes they've shared with me. I have no favorite cookbook...I love picking up new (even better...very old) ones from yard sales, Ebay, Amazon, or wherever I find a good book with a good deal! Love the Food Network and my favs to watch, when I have the time, are Giada De Lorentis & Tyler Florence.
