For treats..
I like a pretzal with a rolo on top and baked in the oven till it melts.. sweat & salty at the same time.

you can throw them in the freezer, to save for later.

Easiest cobbler ever. I made some for my boss at work to try and win brownie points because I want to switch companies. I put 2 bags of frozen peaches in a pan, cover it with a box of yellow cake mix, then pour two 7.5 oz cans of sierra mist over the top. 350 till the top is Brown. I usually open the oven about half way through and pour another can of sierra mist on the dry spots of the cake mix. Eat it warm.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake. Sooo much better than plain old pumpkin pie!

For the vegetables, I do roasted veggies.

Cut up any root veggie you like (carrot, potatoe, rutabaga are good. ) and even Brussels sprouts and Asparagus work well, beleive it or not.

Toss in olive oil , salt and spices of your choosing. Put in large flat pan so only one layer thick. Bake in very hot over (400 , 450 degrees F) 10 minutes, open door and stir them around, another 10 minutes.

Add English chestnuts chopped up before baking. The chestnuts are to die for!

Ugh, Thanksgiving dinner - the reason why I have to own cute "fat pants"

The one thing I am required to make for every family meal is deviled eggs but I don't measure anything so that one's tough to share. Waldorf salad is a must, brined turkey, roasted asparagus, and the million other things everyone brings lol.

I am not a fan of pumpkin so I've tried a ton of pie recipes and have one that I do like. It's easy and super good. Emeril's bourbon pumpkin chiffon, yummmmm!

Sides-
Honey Curried Carrots-
Steam or boil sliced carrots until they are cooked to your liking.
Toss them in a hot skillet with some butter and a drizzle of honey.
Stir and swirl around until honey and butter are melted and mixed well.
Add a pinch of curry powder. (Careful, curry can be strong.)
Stir to distribute, then put in a dish to serve.

No real measurements here as it is all up to how much you like each of the ingredients, but combined together gives the carrots a nice sweet savory, but decidedly different, taste.

Cheesy Potatoes-
Make regular mashed potatoes however you normally like them.
While hot, stir in shredded cheese and mix until melted.
(You may need to add some extra butter or cream if they become too thick.)
The type and amount of cheese is up to you. I personally believe one can never have too much cheesy goodness.
It looks nice if you put in into a casserole dish, sprinkle the top with a little extra cheese and parika, then brown the top in the oven.

Ssert-
I make an awesome spiced apple pie from scratch, but it is far too much for me to remember right now, so my favorite standby holiday dessert is-
Cherry Crunch

Cherry Crunch Recipe - Food.com - 25703

Both are pretty much the same, but the reviews have some great ideas on different fruit fillings.
This is super easy and I've made it with just about every fruit or fruit filling (canned or from scratch) that you can think of.
You can make an adult version with a spirited fruit filling, or a mild one for younger eaters with just fresh berries or sliced pears in a simple sauce.

Thanks for the ideas everyone, keep em coming.

Tiny, I love roasted veg too, but I've never been able to get them as good as my Mum does. It would appear from what you said that I do not have my oven hot enough.

Yep. 450 is good. When they are done, I put some water in the bottom of the Corningware pan (the glass kind) , just a few tablespoons, scrape it around and get that yummy carmelized flavor off and poor it over the veggies. OR add it to the gravy to bring out complex and sweet flavors. But don't just wash that flavor down the sink.
