Chicken Suiza Cornbread Bake
Absolutely delicious! My family devoured it and I was so happy. To think of topping our favorite corn casserole with this delightful chicken mushroom mixture is pure genius!

Salad with Artichokes
The restaurant that makes this salad is in my college town. They use iceberg lettuce cut in chunks and let the salad marinate for awhile. That's an important step. The other is the red wine vinegar. Do not subsitute or you won't have the same delicious taste. And, LOTS of pepper!

Best-Ever Cornbread-Sausage Stuffing
This is our family's favorite stuffing - I double the bread and use 2 pounds of mild pork sausage for a big turkey. We never have enough leftovers!
