I am fearful of the holiday baking as well. And it starts with Halloween. But, I am already preparing by making good choices in each recipe as much as possible. I think the portion control is what really makes the difference. I know I will splurge big time if I restrict myself, so just allowing a little makes all the difference. Of course, I say that now, well before our Christmas Cookie baking and decorating day. We will see!!

I bake A LOT!! Before I start though I make sure I have a meal or snack, then brush my teeth so I'm less likely to snack. I portion control everything, leftovers are sent on the road with bands that have stayed at my house or taken into office at my church. Out of sight out of mind =)

Thanks! The thing is, I LOVE to bake, so does my step-daughter (who said I was fun because we made Halloween cupcakes), and my two year old wants to help too. And although I love the taste, I don't love the results.

I'm also considering looking at Hungry Girl dessert recipes. I just need to experiment before I hand them out for the holidays.

Those are some awesome ideas. I personally don't cook, everything is done at my parents house and I will go help my mom but leave it all there. :) I like that. Less temptations. Plus for the most part it is sugar free so still not great for you but not as bad as some stuff is.

I think those are great goals for your holiday baking!! I'm a spoon licker too!! I bake a lot of pies and cookies because that's what I try to give out to the people we know! A lot more cookie dough gets eaten than baked in my house!! Good luck with your baking! I have faith that you will be able to do this!

It's that time again. Cold weather and upcoming holidays add up to my annual holiday baking. This normally includes tons of cookies, a pie or two and at least 3 homemade cheesecakes. It also means leftover cookies, pies and cheesecakes.

I have multiple goals this year in regards to this.

#1 NO SPOON LICKING!!! especially with my 2 year old watching. Can't start her on that habit.

#2 leftover treats are brought to work. Leaving these in the company cafeteria will guarantee a fast disappearance.

#3 smaller cookies, thinner slices of pie/cheesecake. as tasty as these are, I can't afford the calories.

#4 since each cheesecake is going to a different family dinner (parents are divorced so we get 3 Thanksgiving dinners emoticon ) leave the leftovers behind if I can
