One Thanksgiving about 10 years ago in my misguided youth, I was intent on creating a delicious and overly complicated stuffing.  I can’t remember the exact ingredients (pancetta, fresh herbs, chestnuts, and load of other items since forgotten.  Prunes, I think…).  It was a recipe that was both needlessly complicated and expensive.  The result was good, but not great.   It then occurred to me:  some things don’t need to be complicated to be great.  Take my grandma’s stuffing for instance.  It uses a handful of ingredients you probably already have on hand.  It is buttery, moist, and simply seasoned.  It’s also one of my all-time favorites — both because it’s her recipe and because it’s just plain good.
