About 10 years ago while struggling through nursing school, raising my son, and workin at a nursing home I wanted to make something wonderful to take to my mother's for Thanksgiving. One of the residents at the nursing home gave me a magizine to skim through and I stumbled upon this delicious pumpkin roll recipe. It was a HUGE hit and needless to say, I have been making every year ever since.
