  1. I loved all things about this episode. Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. To me, Thanksgiving means family. I love the traditions of the food and the togetherness. My family definitely has a very traditional menu for Thanksgiving but over the years we have certainly put new twists on those recipes. Oddly enough, even though I disagree, my sister LOVES green bean casserole but she does make it 100% from scratch and is a much healthier version. We also have multiple kinds of stuffing…because why not!? My dad makes a recipe that has been used in the family for who knows how long, but it is a sausage/mushroom stuffing with a secret ingredient of applesauce. My husband makes a crab stuffing and is not allowed to show up without it. Then there is my sister and I who must have a box of StoveTop…and yes our family questions our judgement when there are two other scratch-made stuffings available. Love the podcast! Cannot wait for the next episode!

    • You had me at mushroom stuffing! Your Thanksgiving table sounds amazing and there’s nothing like tradition through your tastebuds!
