How often do you bake something for dessert?

Lately I've been baking cookies and brownies and so forth at least twice a week. I think dessert is something that is hard to pass up when it looks and smells so good while cooling. Don't you think so?

  • I baked 3-4 times a week when the kids were small, and my late DH loved desserts. He was used to having his mom bake and had dessert every night. Now, because I can't resist, and don't need the extra calories, and DH doesn't like sweets, it's usually just once a week or so, except for Holidays. When I have the urge to bake, I do, and then have one piece and take the rest to friends, who are very appreciative.

  • yes it is SO hard to pass up! It is my weakness, wish i didnt have such an addiction to sweets! :( i dont bake dessert that often for those reasons.

  • I am not that much of a baker so from scratch usually only holidays unless I can talk someone into bringing a pie.. But I do but bulk frozen cookie dough from the local store that I always keep on hand to bake fresh cookie for guests... I love them.. mostly because I can cook the exact amount I need and not waste any.

  • Yes, and I love sweets-they are my addiction...typically I only do a lot of baking during the holidays or a special occasion such as birthdays.

  • We usually have some sort of dessert type dish around the house like cookies, cakes, arroz con leche, pie, brownies, so on. I love baking, my family loves eating it. I love experimenting with new things I find online.

  • Not very often. Usually only on special occasions. I am avoiding eating or serving things made with sugar. Darn.

  • Usually for special occasions, like holidays, birthdays, get togethers. Usually not just for an average day, although probably once a month i make something just for the heck of it.

  • A couple times a week. I just baked a pumpkin pie on Saturday and there's still some in the fridge. I am planning to bake cupcakes and cookies this weekend for Halloween.
