desserts and world peace

Confession time. Holidays stress me out. I wish I was one of those people who could kick back and relax knowing that a day off was near.

That's not me in the slightest. In fact, it's not me before any big event, holiday or otherwise. I stress out. A lot. It's okay. It happens. It's just annoying. I tend to be a micro manager of every, single large event that I'm a part of.

Being a perfectionist certainly does not help the situation. Take Thanksgiving, I have very high hopes for this holiday. Visions of feuding family members reuniting; running toward each other in slow motion across a dreamy field with happy, uplifting music heard in the background. This should ideally happen after a taste of one of my desserts.

That's a lot of pressure. I love to bake, but how am I supposed to live up to the expectati that my desserts will eventually be the cause for world peace?

That in mind, I've been trying to figure out what desserts to take to not one, but two, Thanksgiving dinners this Thursday. I think I've finally decided on a pumpkin cheesecake with a candied pecan topping. It certainly sounds like it could be the highlight moment in a movie before they roll the credits.
