  1. My favorite side dish is pineapple casserole tied with stuffing!! I can’t wait for this dinner! (I’d love the sock book.)

  2. Rosemary, garlic, olive oil, (with a splash of apple cider vinegar) and roasted red potatoes.

    I’d love the new sock book!

  3. My most favorite side dish at Thanksgiving has got to be stuffing made with cooked sausage, onions, celery, and walnuts seasoned with Bell’s seasoning and then topped with steaming hot home made turkey gravy.

    I would love to Embellish some items!

  4. Mine is mashed potatoes and gravy… I’m such a sucker for gravy! (Can I just say “gravy” as a side dish, haha) I’d love the embellishments book- thanks so much. 🙂

  5. My favorite Thanksgivings side dish is my mom’s chestnut dressing. Sadly, haven’t had it in years and I can’t find the recipe in her collection.

  6. My favorite side dish (besides pumpkin pie of course!) is mashed potatoes. I would love to win the Favorite Socks book.

  7. That embellishment book looks interesting! Favorite side dish, Hmm.. it would have to be wild rice. In my youth it would have been that green bean hot dish with the cream of mushroom soup and the crunchy onion things on top.

  8. Stuffing, stuffed with stuffing, served on a bed of stuffing, with a crumbled stuffing topping and a stuffing garnish on the side, except that my real favorite is a second helping of stuffing. I’d prefer the Embellishments book, thanks.

  9. Cranberry orange relish, cranberry orange muffins – cranberry orange ANYTHING! Homemade of course! Embellish Me, please!

  10. Hmm, I love the turkey so much, it’s hard to pick a side. Perhaps biscuits… Yes, we’ll go with biscuits. Though my favorite side to look at is the cranberry sauce, still in the shape of can we poured it out of 🙂 I won’t eat it, but it has to be on the table, otherwise it’s not Thanksgiving. Love the sock book!

  11. My favorite side has to be mashed potatoes! And I’d love a copy of Favorite Socks. Happy planning-for-Turkey Day, everyone!

  12. Corn pudding. A new favorite dish around here!

    I’d love ’embellish me’ – I have some jeans that could use patching.

    Thank you for the contest.

  13. I LOVE baked sweet potato with butter and cinnamon.
    (when my dad was still alive NO ONE could top his stuffing)

    I would love to have the “Embellish Me” book.

  14. Our family favorite Thanksgiving side dish is sweet potato casserole which is whipped sweet potatoes topped with a brown sugar and walnut topping. Yummy!!

  15. My favorite side dish would have to be pretty much anything with butternut squash. Love it this time of year and it’s so pretty!!! (Would take either book but prefer the socks one if given a choice)

  16. That’s a really tough question. I have so many favorite sides. I guess I’d have to say my grandmother’s red cabbage.

  17. Turnip. As I child I hated it but was made to eat one spoonful every holiday dinner. My favorite dish now!

    Favorite socks would look lovely in my home.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  18. Definitely mashed potatoes….though my grandmother’s stuffing comes a close second (she puts an apple in it). I’d love the sock book.
