I'll be trying the Christmas rice. It sounds intriguing. Also will use Pacific Foods whole cranberry sauce as a side. Can't wait to do the shopping!

My must-have pantry item has to be boxed (or canned) chicken stock. Such a versatile item for use in soups, mashed potatoes, rice pilaf, chicken dishes. I know I should be making my own stock, but the box is just so convenient!

Breadcrumbs. They're great for topping casseroles made with leftover turkey, and as a topping for potato dishes with leftover mashed potatoes.

I can't do without nuts! Walnuts for fruit salads and cranberry nut breads, pecans for stuffing and wild rice dishes, and homemade spiced nuts for snacking. Nuts are an easy way to add a nutritious and heart-healthy element to every meal.

Whole grain bread is one of the staples of my pantry. Next to the turkey, my famous stuffing from an old family recipe is the highlight of our Thanksgiving feast. And what's better for making a midnight turkey sandwich with all the leftovers?

Chicken stock is really a must for making our homemade turkey gravy. Gravy and mashed potatoes are the ultimate comfort food during the holidays. And turkey vegetable soup, turkey pot pie, and turkey a la king couldn't be made without it. Otherwise, what would we do with all the leftover turkey?

Pecans and syrup for southern pecan pie. If I"m visiting I bring on with me, if not I bake one anyway and eat a slice with morning coffee everyday until it's gone. Treating yourself is almost as much fun as treating others.

Peanut Butter! Name me a better comfort food. Healthy (in moderation) and versatile too. Whether I grab a spoonful before my 6am spin class, mix it in my oatmeal, use it for a thai noodle dish, or spread it on toast, it's a must!

As a vegetarian I cannot live without Frontier Herb's Chicken Flavored Broth Powder. Its easy to store, super yummy and can be used in EVERYTHING - green beans, rice, stuffing, gravy, etc. You can even buy it in bulk like I do! There is also a reduced sodium version if that better suits your dietary needs.

Whole Foods Olive oil(s) are the foundation of just about anything we will be cooking over this holiday season. From savory to sweet, new explorations to traditional southern favorites, your olive oils always seem to find their way into the mix.

Cinnamon is a must. Not only at the hoidays but all year round. We use it in our oatmeal and granola, pancakes and muffins and more. Good for atabilizing blood sugar levels.
