    Linda's Soulful Cornbread Dressing


    Linda Willies’ Soul Cornbread Dressing / Cornbread Stuffing with Touch Of Panamá?

    I woke up Thanksgiving morning to a smell in the house to die for. My wife was making her bi-yearly cornbread dressing. She makes it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’ve been trying to get her to do some cooking on camera for some time. She always had an excuse. The kitchen is too messy now. I don’t have any make up on. I don’t have the right clothes on.

    Anyone who’s seen my cooking video knows I don’t particularly concern myself with the aesthetics. I am engineer. Functionality, applicability, and taste is the only thing that matters. Right? Anyway I ran to my office, got the HD camera and started recording. She finally gave in, no makeup, no tidy kitchen, no designer clothes. I finally won one.

    Linda does not cook cornbread dressing with recipes at all. The picture at the beginning of the video contains all the seasoning she threw in the pot when she boiled the livers and gizzards. She also baked the turkey wings with them along with fresh onions, cilantro, garlic, parsley, and celery.
