My mom always made the best southern dressing for Thanksgiving. It was light and soft and moist. It's made from a combination of homemade cornbread and bought white bread, and it always made our turkey day. The only thing I've changed a bit is the addition of a couple of turkey wings into the chicken broth, but otherwise this is Mom's famous dressing. You only got it at Thanksgiving. Or if you were dead. Once a deacon in her church said he was afraid his family might prematurely do him in to acquire Mrs. Carolyn's dressing. So far no humans have been harmed in the making of this recipe, but you never know.
This is my first recipe here. It's not really a recipe per se yet, more like an essay. I was asked by some friends for this recipe, as I'd given it to a few people last year and--well--word seems to have gotten around. I'm going to throw it up as is, and this Thanksgiving I'll try to write down exact amounts. As it stands now this is more of a well-fleshed-out outline, but hopefully it'll be a good enough guide for people to get started until I can come back to it.
