Granny Lois was one of the best cooks in town. Everyone loved this recipe and she always made it for the church suppers. Everytime we talk about this recipe we laugh. The first time my daughter Karen made this, she did not know you had to bake the cornbread first, so you can imagine the mess she ended up with...we laugh every Thanksgiving over Karen's special dressing. Granny Lois wrote the recipe down for me before she passed away, but her writing was so hard to read, age had made her hands tremble and shake, but luckily, Karen still had the recipe written in younger days, so it is with joy that I share her wonderful recipe. Eat and enjoy !

Thanksgiving day is almost here.....I am lazy when it comes to this recipe...Just open a can of whole cranberry sauce, add a jar of orange marmalade, and stir it together. No fuss, quick and easy...you can add some chopped pecans to it as well...what is left over makes great topping for hot biscuits in the morning...
