Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the fashion. I love the crisp air. I love the Holidays. From Halloween to my birthday and then Thanksgiving.

Being a wife and mother has made these holidays even more enjoyable. I used to look forward to what my mother would slave over every Thanksgiving. Delicious family meals. American traditions, laced with Portuguese culture and adaptations. Although she is still the matriarch of our clan, I am gearing up little by little to give my mom a break and start contributing more to the meal making.

Every Thanksgiving, our table is graced with my mother's Portuguese stuffing. I'm not sure of what the exact ingredients are, but I am certain that it includes chouriço and love. I'm looking to try additional fixings to accompany the bird and stuffing. If you have a recipe you'd like to share for a slam dunk you serve, send it in! Maybe we'll feature a few for our listeners to try!
