In way of update: The next fear on my list was originally “make an entire meal by myself.” After my mom asked me if I wanted to make the rolls this year for Thanksgiving dinner, I changed my mind. The new fear is: “Bring a few things of my own for Thanksgiving dinner.” It’s something I’ve never done before, and I’m excited! But I need your help.
I will be making rolls, macaroni and cheese, and a dessert. But the kind of dessert is up to you. I have narrowed it down to three, and I need every reader to vote! If you are not a regular reader, the poll is still open to you as well. The poll will close a week from today on November 15, and I will announce the winning dessert then. If for some reason the poll I embedded does not show up, vote by commenting with your choice.
Here are the choices:
Almost-Famous Pumpkin Cheesecake: Some of the ingredients that make this dessert unique are cloves, cinnamon, sour cream, and ginger.
Fun facts: Originally featured in Food Network Magazine, Almost-Famous Pumpkin Cheesecake is sure to please.
Level of difficulty*: Intermediate.
Croissant Bread Pudding: The most unique ingredient in this dish is, of course, the croissants.
Fun facts: I have never had bread pudding before. It would be fun to make, but probably even more fun to taste!
