Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before!
My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.
Ever since I first tried this, I've never made another stuffing. The sausage and pecans really give it a different flavor.
Our home is on 20 acres where we have hay and horses—my husband, our two children, (8 and 6) and I ride a lot.
Whenever I serve my Corn Balls, it's just about certain someone will ask for the recipe—I've gotten more requests for it than any other I've ever tried.
I usually make them when we have company as a nice change-of-pace side dish. They're great with ham, steak or roast beef.
My husband and I have two young children, 3 and not quite 1. I grew up on a dairy farm. Today, we live on a small farm where I tend to chickens.
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.

Since my husband raises hogs and my parents produce maple syrup, this recipe's a natural for me! I usually prepare Maple Baked Beans just for us during the winter. In summer, I'll often make it for family picnics and get-togethers.
