My most cherished family holiday recipe is my grandmother's Italian Thanksgiving stuffing. Growing up Italian, nothing was "traditional" at Thanksgiving... especially this stuffing. It is my favorite holiday dish, and I look forward to making it every year.
A Thanksgiving in my family would not be complete without my Nonnie's cranberry sauce — a homemade cranberry sauce spiked with lots of horseradish. It sounds strange, but it is the perfect complement to your Thanksgiving table. I make two versions each year: one with the horseradish and one without for the kids.
Each and every Christmas, I make batch after batch of my mom’s English toffee (which I’ve been making with her for more than 25 years!). I've seen a lot of toffee recipes over the years, but mine works so well for me that I hesitate to try a new one.
