Every Saturday morning, Dan and I have a tradition. We come downstairs early, brew some much needed coffee, and make a breakfast while watching cooking shows. Watching these shows give us inspiration for the week ahead and also show us some techniques to help us improve at cooking. Best of all, we love slowly waking up with beautiful, creative food to obsess over and admire. This past Saturday, we tuned into our favorite cooking show, The Kitchen. We love how inventive their dishes are and how they have so much fun experimenting with food. On this particular new episode, they featured a recipe for cornbread dressing. As they began describing the steps, our mouths immediately started to water. We were so amazed by this unique spin on a Thanksgiving staple, that we began to jot down the ingredients. Every angle of this dish they showed, and every bite that they took, made me want to reach into the television and try some. Never has a recipe done that to me before, and it was taking every bit of me to not run to the store to buy each savory item. Surprisingly I had some self control enough to wait until the next day to make it in our own kitchen. Just like I predicted, every last bite was so completely perfect!

Dan never grew up having cornbread, but on the occasion, my mother would make some for my sisters and me. We loved how it smelled when it came out of the oven, and trying to gobble it up right away. The idea of having it be the centerpiece of stuffing, made the sometimes too traditional dish seem revitalized. Suddenly, this boring dish was spruced with a delightfully fresh taste that was so irresistible to devour. It almost caused me to want this dressing to become the only way to eat it each year.

When we make a dish that is inspired by something we saw or tried, we try to make it completely our own. Either we make it easier or put a drastic spin on the ingredients, that it almost becomes a completely different meal. In this case, we made a few changes that we are fully crediting The Kitchen for this amazing inspiration. Never have we been so eager to make something we saw on television. Luckily, our take on this cornbread dressing was just as wonderful as we thought it would be. It got us dreaming about Thanksgiving and how to put a fresh spin on every traditional dish. We know that if you try this recipe, you will be just as delighted as we were. This cornbread dressing is something that you cannot miss. Even if you serve it on a not so fancy Tuesday, or bring it to a celebratory potluck, you will not be disappointed. Just try not to inhale every bite so that you can have some leftovers. Trust us, it will be a challenging feat.
