The Best Ever Skillet Cornbread Dressing

The Best Ever Skillet Cornbread Dressing

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Do the happy dance. Oh yeah. I’m sooo excited! The official wintery holiday times are kicking off TOMORROW, TOMORROW, I LOVE YA TOMORROW (someone please name that movie in the comments…) and then I can finally start singing Christmas carols, drink hot apple cider, sit by the fire place in my pajamas, and string lights all throughout my room for my next favorite month of the whole year.

But in the meantime, I am totally going to cook this incredible cornbread dressing for my Thanksgiving meal. Seriously guys, this dressing is the bomb. The recipe is from Vivian’s great grandmother (it’s a classic) and it was made by her awesome sis Anne Margaret and her mom, Mrs. Mara, so that we can share the top secret amazing recipe with youuuu.

So huddle in, and find out all you need to know about this goodness of a dressing.

Speaking of dressing, AM told me that you call it dressing if you make it on it’s own, and stuffing if it was cooked inside the turkey. Never knew that.

Fun fact on the daily.

Pomegranate Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Pom-Salad-2

I'm currently writing through big giant scoops of this scrumptious fruit salad. Poms are the bomb.

But I quickly learned that apples, pears, pomegranate seeds, walnuts, and a delicious … Read more
