-Kelly Ring's mother's CORNBREAD DRESSING: "This will be a difficult Holiday, the first one without my parents. But I'm trying to focus on all the blessings and one of them is my mom's cooking. She was incredible and every Thanksgiving and Christmas she made this cornbread dressing! It was my dad's favorite and ours!! I've never even attempted it because I could never make it as good as my mom's. Well this year, in honor of them, I'm going to give it a try. It's from my grandmothers cookbook. Let me know if you have any advice. I'm not a great cook, so wish me luck!! Happy Thanksgiving and count your blessings!" RECIPE: https://www.facebook.com/Kelly.Ring.FOX13/posts/1101713209883555
