- I’ve never had Thanksgiving stuffing quite like the recipe my mom always makes.
- There is no bread involved, but there is a ton of meat, and it’s packed with flavor.

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and for the first time in a long time, I’m not spending it at home.
That’s because I recently moved from London to New York City. The move has had its ups and downs, but the biggest challenge has been adjusting to not having most of my family close by. If you’re close to your family, you’ll know that spending a holiday without them isn’t easy. However, I’m lucky that my mom is flying out to spend Thanksgiving with me in NYC this year.
Since it’ll just be us, we’ve decided to opt for a lunch out at a restaurant rather than cooking a Thanksgiving meal. As excited as I am about there not being any cleanup for us to do, there’s nothing quite like Thanksgiving at home. Both of my parents are incredible cooks, but I will say that one of my all-time favorite Thanksgiving dishes is my mom’s Puerto Rican stuffing.
