Nashville, TN – What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of Thanksgiving dinner? Most people would say turkey, but running a close second is probably dressing or stuffing, specifically cornbread dressing if you have Southern roots.
A tried and true recipe that dates back generations is traditional cornbread dressing, seasoned with onion, celery and sage. To spice up the holiday table this year, add a few non-traditional ingredients to the dressing that will likely be the start of a new Thanksgiving dinner tradition.
Nashville, TN – Cranberries were seldom seen outside the holiday season and even then they were primarily served as sauce with the turkey just a few years ago. Now, sweetened, dried cranberries, along with cranberry juice and sauce, are enjoyed throughout the year. Fresh cranberries are generally available only from September to December, but you can find frozen berries all year round.
“The popularity of baked goods like cranberry muffins, scones and breads has helped us appreciate the unique, tart and tangy flavor of these little berries. Since dried and frozen products are easily accessible, we can include cranberries in our favorite recipes any time,” observed Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “However, since the harvesting season for fresh cranberries so perfectly corresponds with our holidays and the tradition is so strong, cranberries will always be a part of holiday celebrations.”
Nashville, TN – Why not get a head start on cornbread dressing this year since you wouldn’t think about having Thanksgiving dinner in the South without it.
Although cornbread dressing is simple to make, Thanksgiving morning is certain to be a busy time, so having most of the ingredients prepared in advance and waiting will save a lot of time.
Nashville, TN – Because there are no presents to buy, minimal decorations are fine and you get to eat a wonderful meal, Thanksgiving is a great holiday.
And how appropriate that the Thanksgiving dinner table is symbolic of this annual celebration.
Nashville, TN – As the days shorten and cool, those hearty soups and stews start sounding good again.
“There may be no other meal that folks look forward to more in the fall than that first big pot of chili and a skillet of hot cornbread,” observes Martha White® baking expert, Linda Carman. “Chili and cornbread are both easy to make and fun to serve on a lot of different occasions – a family supper, tailgate outing or a casual get-together with friends.”
Nashville, TN – Adding special touches to baking mixes has always been a favorite with bakers, and muffin mixes are no exception.
From simple additions to complete transformations, Martha White® Muffin Mixes provide the premeasured dry ingredients that give you a head start in creating back-to-school moments in minutes.
Nashville, TN – When farmer’s markets and road side stands abound with fresh vegetables, we rush to take advantage of the season’s bounty while it lasts.
“Southerners are so fond of fresh vegetables that all-vegetable meals are often served in the summer,” says Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “And although we can do without meat, a skillet of crisp brown cornbread is a must.”
