30 Minute Meals: Rice & Beans with Sausage

I used to enjoy spending time in the kitchen, trying new recipes, and creating fabulous dinners.

True confessions: I've never cooked a Thanksgiving dinner. I've always gone to my mom's or my mother-in-law's, and in recent years we've been going to my sister-in-law's house for Thanksgiving dinner, but this year I'm going to be cooking! Of course I had to call my mom and ask her for all the family recipes so I can make it taste like home. My favorite part of her Thanksgiving meal is her herbed bread stuffing.
