“super casual country folks who won’t appreciate most of the gifts I’d normally get” LOL. Welcome to my life! I’ve brought homemade goodies ranging from homemade cheesecake to tiramisu and they just never get nommed donw the way they should.

I’m bringing a pumpkin roll this year–pumpkin cake rolled up with a rich cream cheese filling inside

you could make some nuts. who doesn’t like nuts? and it’s something that can be set out to eat throughout the day, or they can save them and eat them later.

I planned to bring a pie the first time I spent Thanksgiving with his family.  I made two so that we could test one out.  It tasted HORRIBLE!!  I think I added too much of something.  We ended up grabbing a pie at the grocery store on Thanksgiving and telling them the story of my yucky pie.

@ejs4y8 – I’m bringing pumpkin roll too!!!  I just made it a few weeks ago and my husband (who had never had it) loved it so much he was raving to his parents about it.  Now they want me to bring them one!!  So funny.  Even my little brother (that swore he didn’t like pumpkin) loved it!  I’ll probably make a couple and send the leftovers home with family.  If anyone’s interested, here’s the link to my blog where I have the recipe.  It’s a definite crowd pleaser!

Pumpkin Roll Recipe

http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/detail.aspx?ID=32372

This is like, cake crack. My friend keeps making it for bake sales and it sells out notoriously. I can’t get mine to look as pretty as the photo–the cream cheese kinda gushes out a little when I make it because I don’t spread it perfectly even…..plus i end up with “cream cheese fingers” =]

And when the cake is hot, you literally just powder sugar the heck out of that towel and roll it up. When it cools completely, and you take the towel out, your cake kinda springs up into a curly-q. I’ve had one or two break on me before, but only b/c I don’t let it cool all the way and I get impatient. . =]

I say make a dessert or maybe a side dish that is loved by your family to introduce one of your family traditions.

There are so many places to get great recipes (MarthaStewart.com, FoodNetwork.com, etc).

I’m always up for something from a good bakery – maybe nice rolls or something?

I bring pumpkin cheesecake. My FI’s family was super hesitant about trying it when I first brought it 3 Thanksgivings ago, but now they request it! 🙂 We bring lots of stuff with us, but mostly because we are vegetarians and no one else in his family is, so we have to bring our own food for the most part (the Tofurkey went over well last year. Everyone loved it! 🙂
