Recipe News: Dressing recipes worthy of a permanent place at your table

When the Pilgrims and American Indians sat down together, no doubt someone asked the following:

"Do you call it stuffing or dressing?"

Regardless of the name, stuffing has been around since even before the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth.

The predecessor was forcemeat, a dense mix of ground meat and spices that the Europeans were fond of using to fill the empty cavities of a bird. Stuffing was popular during the Renaissance because cooks liked to debone the bird and then plump it up with stuffing to hold its shape, writes Andrew Smith, author of the Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink, on the Oxford University Web site.

The term dressing is thought to have entered the lexicon during the Victorian era as a more genteel way of saying stuffing; dressing is still preferred by those ladies and gents of the South.

Includes recipes for:

  • Gene Amole's Stuffing

  • Turkey With 7-Grain Bread and Squash Stuffing

  • Corn Bread Chorizo Stuffing

  • Bread Stuffing With Pears, Bacon and Pecans

  • Wild Rice and Corn Bread Stuffing

Recipe News: Test Kitchen: 'Schedule friendly' recipes great for games

What a great season! The air has a hint of briskness, the leaves are beginning to show their glorious fall colors and college football makes for exciting Saturdays as well as a few Friday evenings. Whether you tailgate at the game or watch from the living room on the TV, all sorts of great tastes from the grill will ensure enthusiastic fans have lots of energy to cheer their team.

There are many terrific foods to select; they can be fancy or simple but, most of all, they must taste great while not interfering with kick-off time. That's why the Sweet and Tangy Ribs featured today are perfect for a tight schedule. By pre-baking the ribs and making the sauce a day ahead of game day, the grill time is significantly reduced. Feel free to use your favorite recipe or jarred barbecue sauce; either will work nicely. These ribs are hearty and laden with sauce so be sure to have lots of napkins. Also, include a big bowl of coleslaw to accompany the ribs.
