Living in the South means you will always have cornbread dressing at every holiday dinner. Of course you can make this dish any time you have a taste for dressing. The first time I had the pleasure of eating dressing was at my sister in law's house. I got the general recipe from my Mother in law Farrie. When I would ask her how to make it, she would say: " a lil of this and a lil of that" :). It took me some time to perfect it, to the way I make it today.
