Konriko Wild Pecan Rice & Dried Cranberry Dressing / Stuffing

I found this wonderful recipe on the back of a box of Konriko Wild Pecan Rice a few years ago and now it's a favorite Thanksgiving Stuffing at our house. The original recipe calls for chicken livers, but I leave them out to save on the calories, but if you want to try them you could probably use the turkey liver instead. The nutritional info calculation doesn't include the livers.

I use Vidalia onions, but scallions would probably be tasty, too. I've seen variations on this recipe on the Internet with leaks and bacon instead of onions and chicken liver.

This recipe is unique in that it uses fresh thyme and sage, which give it that traditional Thanksgiving flavor.

Mediterranean Baked Cod with tomatoes and peppers

I found this recipe on Cooks.Com -- Mediterranean Baked Cod. I added a red, yellow & orange pepper and used more cod. I also used Italian seasoning instead of the seasonings listed in the ingredients and also used italian seasoned panko. I also used fat free feta and fat free grated parmesan topping, but the recipe builder didn't have them as an option, so the calories will be less than what is listed.

Mashed Carrots and Turnips (aka Rutabagas)

This is a dish that my mother in law used to make years ago when I was first married. I think it's an old English recipe and it was one of her family's traditional Thanksgiving recipes. It's very simple and very good! The first time I tried to make it, she told that it used carrots and turnips, so I made it with carrots and turnips. YUCK!!! It turned out that turnip is the old New England name for a RUTABAGA. Once I made it with rutabagas it was delicious -- I have never had a Thanksgiving without this recipe for the past 32 years. It's amazingly simple and if you've never had it you won't believe how amazingly delicious it is! It goes so well with turkey and stuffing!!
