Recipes from Ol' Friends & Relatives
There’s no better time to be in the kitchen than during the holidays, so I’ve asked some of my family and friends to share their favorite recipes. According to Becky Patrick, the PERFECT Thanksgiving is waking up to the smell of a baking turkey. “To prepare a turkey the old-fashioned way,” says Becky, “you must butter it, add salt and pepper and baste every 30 minutes. This makes it golden and tasty and BEAUTIFUL. You are very tired but have a beautiful bird.” Next comes the dressing. There are as many variations of dressing as there are cooks in Panola County. One of my favorites is made by Leann Marshall. Leann says her goal is to make her dressing as close to Mrs. Ruby Sue Wedgeworth’s as possible. So many recipes were submitted, there is not room to print them all, so they are all listed here.
