I clean with baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar so CANNOT live without those! Organic stock, maple syrup, extra virgin olive oil and canned tomatoes seem to be on my shopping list to replenish often!

I would love to see a Whole Foods Market in or around the Hickory,NC area. All good foods and such are at least an hour away as it is now.

Dried cranberries! I use them for Vegetarian stuffing, salad, and the cookies!

Dried sage is an absolute Thanksgiving pantry necessity. It makes anything you add it to taste like Thanksgiving. Excellent addition to sweet potato dishes and mandatory in the stuffing. Great herb for the turkey or tofurky of your choice!

Brown sugar! So many delicious baked goods contain brown sugar - plus the sweet potatoes!

Thanks for the wonderful tips I love holiday cooking and healthy options for my family is a must. I would love to win the pantry stock up as we just bought a new home with a fantastic pantry, a feature. We have never had before.

Chicken stock/broth. I use it in everything! I inject it into the turkey to make it extra juicy, I use it instead of water to make the stuffing and of course, to make gravy. Chicken stock makes everything more flavorful.

My most important pantry staple is vegetable stock since I use it in so many things I make for Thanksgiving.

Our staple, that would have to be the potato. My Thanksgiving isn't complete with out lumpy thick mashed potatoes. We also use potatoes to make our dinner rolls. This year we are attempting a gluten free Thanksgiving...keep your fingers crossed for us, the potatoes will help us make it possible! :)

I would like to surprise my mother with this gift. she loves whole foods and always gets her thanksgiving meals there. She is a single mother of 4 and she is a wonderful hard working mother. this year I don't want her to cook a lot even if possible, at all. I really hope I win!!!I like the milk chocolate

For our Thanksgiving meal, I cannot do without a few staples: canned pumpkin, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and raw sugar. The whole meal would fall apart without them. I use them for dessert, hot beverages, and yams.

Cinnamon for my homemade apple pie, pumpkin pie sweet potato casserole. Plus I love cinnamon flavored coffee. I love the way it makes the house smell like the holidays.

I love fall and Thanksgiving! This year my birthday is on Thanksgiving so I get the added bonus of being with my extended family on my birthday, making it just a bit more special. I always have organic chicken broth in my pantry, I use it in my green beans and they are a big holiday hit. I also like to make a lot of baked goods for the kids this time of year - but most of those are mixes in a box, needing only oil and eggs added. So I do keep myself stocked with canola oil, and I always have extra virgin olive oil for everything else.

I can't do without chicken broth, it goes in the stuffing, the potatoes and the gravy to give everything a little more flavor!

Good chicken stock! You can use it for everything in place of water - such as in stuffing or potatoes. I prefer low sodium and low fat. Gives a great flavor to everything.

Pumpkin puree! My grandmother, Mimi, was the dearest. She made the best pumpkin pie each year and gave us the recipe before passing. Now, it serves as a reminder. It reminds us to appreciate our friends and family while they are with us, and that they are in our hearts always. That's a big job for a little puree!
