Paula, I love your show, cooking has always been big in my family having 3 children and a husband with 4 men in the house they were big eaters. I recently loss my oldest son at the age of 24, in 2007. He was a Sheriff Deputy and a volunteer fireman. He died in his own house fire. I loss all reasons for going on. I didnt celebrate holidays, I didnt cook anymore, I just found it hard to go on. My other children tried to help me, and they did.. But I took a leave of absence from my work, afew years later, I started watching your show, the love you have for cooking and your family helped me so much. I found apart of me that I thought was lost forever. You are a wonderful person, and I so enjoy your show and will continue to watch it. Thank you Paula you helped me more than you know..I love all your receipes..

My Mom has made this stuffing every year since I can remember! She puts spinach in it, and it's my favorite part of Thanksgiving!

This was the best dressing that I've ever made. I omitted the oysters and added chicken instead and it was still GOOD!!! Thanks Mrs. Paula!

question? amt. of chicken stock? Paula's exact recipe listed on the Food Network website lists only 2 cups of chicken stock...I am "assuming" it is 2 cups vs 7 cups as listed below...am fixing this recipe for Thanksgiving...can't wait to try it...my husband loves oyster dressing..and I know Paula's recipe will be the best! I'll review later.
