We always look forward to big feasts every November and December.  At Taylor Morrison, we enjoy each region’s special holiday food traditions. This year, why not try a few at your own gathering?


In honor of the folks who live in our new homes in Sacramento, Bay Area and Southern California locations, we suggest Sourdough Stuffing With Kale, Dates and Turkey Sausage.1 This laid back recipe features some of the Golden State’s most popular ingredients.
