The pantry staple I cannot do without is cinnamon. Since my boyfriend is Mexican and I am korean, cinnamon is one of the few flavors I know I can use that we will both enjoy and be able to share with both sides of our family. Chocolate also works. :) I recently had a pantry moth invasion and haven't been able to restock my pantry after the massive cleaning.

It just would not be Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce. That brings back loving memories of Thanksgivings past. Especially love to smear it on a leftover turkey sandwich :)

Absolutely must have pumpkin puree, sweet potatoes and cinnamon. Fall harvest deliciousness.

Gluten free cornbread! I make a killer cornbread stuffing - I love it so much I have to make a triple recipe just so it can actually make it to the Thanksgiving dinner table!

What a great contest. But with just my husband and myself, our food supply stays fairly sparse, except when we load the frig with great Whole Foods products. I think I would rather donate this to a less fortunate family member or to someone in the community. Great contest. Thanks.

I can't do without 365 Organic Chicken stock-low sodium (I prefer to add if needed) as we use it in so many ways from base for gravy to cooking chestnuts and veges!

I cannot live without my favorite dessert spices at Thanksgiving -- cardamom, nutmeg, and cinnamon are my go-to spices for everything from (gluten-free) apple pies to cranberry relish. Mmmm! Can't wait for the baking season to start!

Absolutely the dried fruit (cranberries and apricots). I use apricots in a dressing, and I dip them in dark chocolate for a small goodie.

Frontier Organic Cinnamon, Organic Cloves, Organic Nutmeg and Organic Ginger help me create my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal - and not just because they make my pumpkin pie so delicious! Making the pumpkin pies the night before Thanksgiving has become a shared tradition with me and my two daughters. This year, with my oldest in her first year of college, I learned how important this tradition is. She asked me to please not make the pies without her, or Thanksgiving just wouldn't be the same. It warms my heart to know that this one simple bonding time has made a lasting impact on the lives of my daughters. And the wonderful products from Whole Foods make it just that much better!

Tea. It is the ultimate stress reliever, especially during the holidays when schedules are off, houses are fit to bursting with extra people, and especially when there are too many cooks in the kitchen! LOL!

I cant live without nuts - I find that a handful here or there can really change (and improve) the entire character of a dish, like in the streusel topping for a fruit pie or sprinkled over a salad...

This will be my first turkey, which I am going to prepare in this county. I will absolutely need the Simply Organic Roasted Turkey Gravy Mix to make it!

I just can't do without the pumpkin puree! My Grandmother's homemade pumpkin pie recipe is a hit every Thanksgiving at our house!

Cranberry sauce, the perfect sweet compliment to turkey. Not a traditional holiday meal without it!

Can't do without Imagine broth. Having celiac disease makes Thanksgiving a bit more challenging, but I want dinner to still be the traditionally "delish" meal for my family. Imagine is the best...for the best gravy, for seasoning veggies, for mashing potatoes and of course for making that fabulous gluten free cornbread stuffing :)

I think nuts, walnuts or almonds, add alot to many dishes. I add them to green beans, brussel sprouts, and stuffing.
