Remmi Smith: This dish is crazy delicious. I know in some households the only time a dressing is made is at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but dressing is a great side dish to pair with pork and chicken throughout the year. If fresh cranberries are out of season, frozen or dried works as well. The cranberries make this a beautiful dish to serve, and add a sweet and wonderful flavor. Hugs and Veggies <3 Remmi
