Do you bake year round or only for the holidays?

Every year when I'm making cookies/brownies/etc I always say I'll do more through the year because of how stupid simple it is, but I never seem to get around to it. I'll make bread, and I'll do birthday cakes, but we never seem to find excuses to do cookies.

  • I never do it cause I'm REALLY the worst cook ever!! I do try to get better but I just can't! And no one ever encourages me to try harder because they prefer not to eat my food lol!!

    Anyway, my mom lives on our block and she's the one who bakes. And she does it year round. My daughter loves my mom's cookies and they both bake them almost every week!! My dd is my mom's little helper!!

  • oh sure, i bake all the time. there's always something at school to bring goodies for. i enjoy baking/decorating/etc, so when i get bored, out come the flours, pans and measuring cups. i'd enjoy being a baker, i think..especially coming up with creative ideas to do new or old, tried and true recipes. my dh is a sweet-aholic, so nothing ever goes to waste. i bring things to the salon, to the neighbors/friends..i just love baking..can't keep or eat it all, so i share.

  • I do all year around. Maybe not so much in the summertime though because of how hot it makes the house.

  • WE do it year round. I used to own a bakery so we hardly ever purchase store bought. My kids are all teens and they are the ones doing it now.

  • We bake all year round. Mmm Hmmmm. Yummy. I'll take any excuse to whip up some cookies or try out a new cake recipe. I love baking.

    salexander, he he he, funny! My honey is a big man, so I say "never come between a fat man and his baked goods."

  • Believe it or not, I bake all year round and very little through the holidays. Backwards huh?

  • I do bake but not often. WHen there is a need, a special ocasion,whatever, I would rather bake my own desserts,cookies,etc. than buy store bought which are usually less healthy than home made.
