If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.

Let's talk food! We all have those favorites during the holidays that we don't get any other time of the year, or if we do, rarely. We have the traditional Thanksgiving feast, turkey and dressing, gravy and mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and fruit salad, yams, sweet pickles, pumpkin and pecan pies. But for my family, their special is my homemade dressing, which I always stuff the turkey with. Last year I made a huge cake pan of it for the party at my daughter's work, and it was requested again for this year. It's not hard to make, but it can be a little time consuming, and is so worth it! The dressing I put outside the turkey, on top of the legs, is fought over because it gets dark and crisp.

Here is my recipe and it's simply called dressing. Makes enough to stuff a 12lb. Butterball turkey, and an extra bread pan.

2 loaves of long cheap bread - broken up into large bowl
1 large onion - chopped up
3 celery stalks and some of the leafy part - chopped up
1 package Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage - cooked and drained
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
2 cups more or less turkey stock made from the neck, heart, and gizzards. You boil them for a couple hours, will need to keep adding water to it. Take them out when stock is done, cut them up and feed it to the dog:) (can substitute homemade stock with turkey or chicken bouillon cubes - 2 or 3, I usually add 2 in 2 cups of water and nuke, you may need to break cube up)

Add everything together in a large bowl except the stock. When it's time for the stock don't add the whole thing at one time because you may need less than you prepared. As you begin to add stock mix ingredients thoroughly. By the time dressing is done you want it wet (not dripping) and sticking together. 

Stuff the turkey, pack it in good, and put some extra on the crevice between the legs and body. Don't worry if it gets dark and crisp when cooking. Cook the extra in an uncovered baking dish for about 1 and a half hours.

Thanks for the recipe, I love turkey and Thank you for the opportunity to enter the contest! lalapalro@ymail.com

Thanks for participating. That's almost identical to our recipe, but we don't use sausage. We make it non-fat (other than what the turkey juices add to it) by just using broth and fat free milk. Then I slather it with lots of fat laden gravy...it all balances out.

I love seeing different recipes for Thanksgiving around the holidays. In my home, we like to change things up year to year. Since I'm half Austrian we don't have "Thanksgiving" there, but we have Martinigansl on Nov 11th in honor of St. Martin. For that we make an oven-roasted goose served with a sweet/savory red cabbage (made with grated apples) and potato dumplings. It's fun being able to mix up or combine cultures, but I do love preparing a traditional American Thanksgiving with all the trimmings.

Thanks for the great giveaway! - msromanticreads(at)gmail(dot)com. Followed via GFC and email.

This looks just like the way my mom makes it. I love the way the top gets crunchy. I remember seeing Rachael Ray make hers and put it in muffin tins because people liked the way it would crisp.
I love stuffing, but this is the only time I get to have it.

Thanksgiving has always been an important holiday for our family, it was the holiday we all got together and went camping to celebrate. Once my grandparents got divorced, we stopped camping together, but we still traveled to their homes for celebrating. Now my sister tries to carry on the tradition but with do much if our family gone, it's only her family and my family. Our favorite stuffing is oyster stuffing, because that's what my grandpa made every year :)

Your stuffing recipe sounds great. We've always made ours with homemade Southern (not sweet) cornbread. I'm guessing it tastes completely different. And we make it with chicken, so it has chicken in it, rather than sausage, but I bet it would taste good with sausage, too. I might have to try it. I'm going to try your recipe, too. Thanks so much for sharing. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com
