"THIS DRESSING, baked separately from the turkey, is simply delicious. The secret is to prepare the corn bread first, let it cool and then crumble it to form the 'base' for the rest of the ingredients. My father always added oysters to give the dressing a special flavor."

I made this recipe over 45 years ago for the first pheasant I ever roasted—it was a special dinner I prepared to thank a wonderful sister and brother-in-law for all of their help when we bought our first home. To this day, it's a favorite with our friends and family when they come to visit.

Sunday afternoons were frequently a time for family gatherings. While the uncles played cards, the aunts prepared wonderful German treats such as this red cabbage. Oftentimes there wasn't enough room for everyone at the dining table, so the grown-ups and babies ate first. My cousins and I would hang around waiting for our turn, hoping there'd be plenty of food left.
