Apple Pecan Stuffing Recipe

Stuffing is just about the best invented recipe, ever! It’s so good and so filling. I’m always a bit surprised that someone could come up with stuffing in the first place, though, as it seems like such a strange concoction. I won’t complain, though, because despite how unappealing stuffing tends to look, it’s so good you can’t keep me from going back for seconds.
