Crock pot stuffing saves time on Thanksgiving Day

Between the sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and about a dozen other side dishes, something has to give. After all, you only have one set of hands and one oven. If you’re looking for ways to make Thanksgiving more manageable this year, look no further. Crock pot stuffing is a set-it-and-forget-it recipe that is easy, delicious and decadent.

It would seem most states have the basics down, since not a single state had “turkey” as the most common search. Similarly, only Illinois is still confused about how to make mashed potatoes. Most states want to know how to perfect side dishes and desserts. Casseroles, sweet potato pie and various sweets all made the list. Some states stay true to character. It seems New Yorkers love learning how to perfect the  cheesecake. South Carolinians absolutely…
