OK babes here is the recipe for turkey gravy made with pan dripping that I did a video on but deleted several clips by accident (I seriously teared up when this happened because I cooked a freakin turkey JUST to get those beautiful drippings to make that video) Ok breathe Monique…this too shall pass. Anyway, I told you fine folks that I would have it
Growing up, a holiday meal just wasn’t quiet the same without a pan of these southern baked candied yams. Whenever we’d have new people over for Sunday dinner they’d always comment on how delicious the candied yams were. Everybody wanted to know “the secret”.

***UPDATED RECIPE #1*** I created this post in 2009 but updated it with a video. I’ve also update the recipe and you can find that here. If you’ve ever wondered how to make a flavorful, homemade Southern Cornbread dressing, then let me share with you my grandmother’s recipe. This dressing is usually the ONLY dressing I will eat. It is moist, full of that soul
For some reason I was in the mood to make a pumpkin pie that was 100% fresh and homemade. Now, we love cooking from scratch down here in the south, but folks will whip out a can of Libby’s without even thinking twice. Even those who swear they never cook from cans.
