Foreign Guests and the Foreigner Belt

I'm American and I live in Italy. We have friends over about once a month for dinner and I always make American/Tex-Mex food because not only is it what I do best, but its stuff that they've never tried before. If you had foreign guests in your home, what typical American dishes (or dishes from wherever you live) would you cook for your guests?

If you put on the Foreigner Belt and didn't want to be 'Cold as Ice', what would you bring as a gift to your local 'Hot Blooded' hosts from your area?

And yes... I am a child of the 80's.
