Generations columnist for The Herald-Palladium

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday meal to cook. Everything is from scratch, and the house smells amazing for days.

My husband always rolls his eyes as I dig into the freezer at the store to find the biggest turkey available. I love leftovers, turkey sandwiches, and we always freeze some for soup.
