Cranberry Stuffing Balls
Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a different stuffing this year, you'll find these balls are both tasty and easy to prepare.
Cooking has been a favorite pastime of mine since my husband and I retired (I used to operate a beauty salon). We had 80 acres and kept 2-1/2 of them to build our new country home on.
