Christmas will be here before we know it, I have the pleasure of hosting it this year for my family and cooking for 19! I personally have never been a big stuffing fan, I think maybe because a staple ingredient is usually celery and well to be blunt I freaking HATE celery 😉 So I thought… well why not create my own stuffing with no celery…Ahhhh yes that’s my perfect world..no celery anywhere 🙂 I filled my stuffing with delicious fruit YUM! This cranberry apple & pear stuffing is really easy to make and you can just pop it all in your crock pot and 1 hour later voila… 🙂
