    Michelle Snider, Major Jourmalism

    Gee, that’s tough! Pecan pie because it reminds me of my grandma. I love the sweet gooiness of the pie, and how my grandma would cook for us every time we came to visit.

    Derek Gonzales

    My favorite holiday dish? Does it have to be a dish? Oh man, that’s so hard! Eggnog. It just gives off this festive feeling of Christmas. You need eggnog with Christmas.

    Katie Graham, Major History instructor

    Oh wow! My favorite holiday dish. My mothers stuffing. What you eat is also about preparation at Thanksgiving. I remember we pulled apart the bread. we didn’t use any old bread.being with my mother and pulling apart the bread, wonderful shells,big pot, Dutch oven. I like the way it tastes. Nobody’s stuffing is as good as my mother’s.

    Kerrion Hadnot, major business

    I have to go with smothered pork chops, candy yams, the lil’ bread, macaroni and cheese, and cabbage. It just feels like home, I’ve been eating it ever since I was young.

    Kalja Mores, Major Kajia mores African American Woman’s studies

    Mac and cheese, because of all the different combinations of cheeses they put in it. It’s not from the box. It’s from scratch. When my grandma cooks, it’s really good.
