Cranberries. I get them at Thanksgiving, then keep them in the freezer for use all year... but they still belong to Thanksgiving.

Candied Yams would be the one staple my family would not be without. It's been a tradition every Thanksgiving since our children were little and when we've eaten at someone else's house and there were no candied yams, they would say it wasn't Thanksgiving without them. I crush the yams in a baking dish and then add a little pure maple syrup and top with marshmallows from Whole Foods, because they don't have dye in them. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Canned pumpkin. I try to start early so I can make and eat as many pumpkin pies as possible until Spring!

I have to have baking powder and butter. Thanksgiving makes me want to bake more than any time of the year! Obviously, you have to have these two!

Organic Cinnamon and Nutmeg make the holidays smell just right... Baking Pumpkin is a close second.

It is hard to pinpoint a specific pantry item that creates my favorite part of Thanksgiving but I guess it would be the aroma of a pumpkin pie baking in the oven and spices flowing through the house. It reminds me of growing up and the many holicays celebrated on the farm with my grandparents and family. This year my husband and I will be sharing Thanksgiving with his family at our home and making new memories.

Cinnamon is my favorite holiday staple. It is amazing on so many dishes and very versatile from pumpkin pie to sweet potatoes. My family which is large seems to always love what is made with the tantilizing spice,

I can't do without chocolate chips because they go in holiday cookies and because nibbling on a couple of them straight from the bag helps meto de-stress while I'm cooking the big T-day feast!

I always keep organic low sodium chicken stock or vegetable stock on hand. I use it to add flavor to dishes like rice, and veggies. It also comes in handy when making new dishes with leftovers.

Spices - for the stuffing, the bird and the gravy! I start my stuffing with melted butter that I add all the yummy spices too. They make not only the stuffing and bird taste great but make the entire house smell like Thanksgiving!

Orange Jello is a must. One of my family members, that happens to be our host for Thanksgiving, does not allow admittance if I fail to show up with "Orange Fluff".

I use just about everything on this list for most of my meals. I am so happy that Whole Foods offers such an array of great and healthy items in their stores. When I purchase my fresh vegetables,fruits, fish and meats I am assured they ARE fresh and very tasty and the very best I can give my family. Whole Foods is the only store I shop at.

Organic chicken stock is an essential Thanksgiving supply, since it goes into the gravy, mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, and so much more.

Gotta have ingredients for the stuffing, of course! Since we are now a gluten-free family, looks like we'll need some gluten-free bread this year.

Our family staple for the holidays is cinnamon. From mashed sweet potatos or squash to our breakfast steel cut oats..we LOVE cinnamon. It adds such a warm and comforting feel to fall foods and it has tremendous health benefits!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
