My favorite recipe is my grandfather's snowball cookies. He made them every year, and now I make them for my dad. -- Jessica

My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is sweet potato casserole. I love it! I'm not sure why we never make it outside of Thanksgiving (probably all the butter, sugar, and marshmallows). -- Cait

I LOVE corn casserole -- I make it every Thanksgiving (and many other times throughout the year)!! YUM!! -- Sara Phillips

I LOVE Paula's pumpkin gooey butter cake. It is always a huge hit at my Thanksgiving dinner. -- Tammy

I love homemade mashed potatoes!! They are so easy to make, but so good!! They are made with lots of sour cream and butter. -- Summer

I love, love, love stuffing. I could just eat a plate of that, especially with extra onions. -- Andrea Bilec

I actually prefer my mom's seafood gumbo to any traditional Thanksgiving recipes, but a close second would be my recently deceased sister's cornbread dressing ... I unfortunately do not have the recipe, as she never wrote anything down. This will be my first holiday without her. -- Dede

I can't pick just one favorite. Are you kidding? I LOVE my mom's giblet gravy, my mother-in-law's cranberry salad, and my own sweet potato casserole. I can't have Thanksgiving without any of them. :0) -- Michelle M

I stay in touch with Momlogic via Facebook, and I just registered for the newsletter. The recipe I can't live without for Thanksgiving is my grandma's Sweet Potato Pie -- it consists of sugar and spice and everything nice. -- Tiffany Jackson

The one recipe I can't live without on Thanksgiving is my Grandma's homemade pear pie. It has pears and raisins and cloves and cinnamon and nutmeg, and is delicious with vanilla ice cream on top. -- Tracy Hill

My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is Sage and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes! -- Mary Ellen

My mother's dumplings. Oh my. -- Peggy

Oyster stuffing is my favorite, with green bean casserole coming in a close second! -- Diane Burke

Every holiday I make ether pumpkin cookies or pumpkin bread. It’s like having my Grandmother there even though she’s been gone for years. My family swarms me at the door, especially my cousin waiting with her hand out for her very own special batch of goodies. It’s nice to hear every person who tastes them say “this reminds me of Grandma Thelma.” Great to know I can keep her in our hearts with one of her recipes.

My favorite Thanksgiving recipe that I can’t live without is my mom’s mashed potatoes. She makes them with extra lumps and lots of flavor so they taste so good.

My favorite recipes for Thanksgiving are my grandmothers mashed potatoes and my aunts pie called Carlie Prides Sweet Potato Pie. No one can ever make them the way they do. Even if you have the recipe, they just don’t tast the same if someone else makes them if you know what I mean.
