Baking for me is a ticket to failure with weight loss.

I like to bake simple things. Breakfast cakes, brownies. I am not a cake or pie baker.

I'd much rather bake than cook, especially when it's snowing outside! Makes the house feel warm and cozy, I guess! emoticon

I usually LOVE to bake especially during the fall/winter time when its cold outside & I have time. Unfortunately this year with our crazy weather patterns along the NC coastline its just been too warm outside on the days I am actually scheduled off and would have the opportunity to do some baking. I like to give some away where me & my husband bring stuff to work for co-workers to share, my son's bus driver, mailperson, UPS & FedEx delivery guys, and then I store a bunch in our freezer to enjoy the rest of the year in moderation.

This year- just hasn't really happened for me. I only have chocolate whoopie pies in the freezer but not a whole lot of cookies, breads, and muffins.

I love to bake. I have a gluten intolerance so that helps me not eat what I am baking.

yes, but not at home. I work as a cook for an assisted living facility.

Used to bake lots from cookies, cakes, pies, breads, etc.
That is one of the many reasons I gained up to the morbidly obese category.
I no longer bake anything.
It is a critical way to slip back into old and destructive habits.
It just isn't worth taking a chance.

I bake...I eat...so I don't bake much...LOL

One thing I would love to try baking is bread. Not quick breads, but the real deal yeast breads.

I love to bake! I used to make wedding cakes, birthday cakes, pastry swans, etc. Now, I have trained two other people how to decorate and baked and gave away all my pans and supplies. Because....I eat way to much icing!

Now I satisfy my baking jones by challenging myself to bake delicious sugar free desserts. Seriously, I only have one cup of flour in my pantry, as I'm letting my less healthy items dwindle away. I have made sugar free pumpkin pie, cheese cakes and cupcakes. For icing, I use a dollop of sugar free cool whip or eat them naked.

My favorite cupcake recipe is one I got from Hungry Girl. Use a sugar free cake mix or low sugar and add 12 oz. diet soda. The possibilities are many. Lemon, chocolate, you name it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I LOVE to cook, be it baking or any other method. If only I could keep up with the dishes! emoticon emoticon
I try to be conservative about my oven use, such as: cooking more than 1 thing at a time, only using the oven at night during the Summer, leaving the door open to heat my apartment after I've turned it off. I think I use my oven about once a week.

Fall seven times. Stand up eight. -Japanese proverb

"I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are, because a could-be is a maybe that is reaching for a star.
I'd rather be a has-been than a could-have-been, because a could-have been has never been, but a has was once an are."
Milton Berle

Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.

Yes, I like to bake but I don't do much of it. I do fix cakes when I have visitors. I know how to fix pies but the crust is not that good. There are several meat dishes that I put into the oven. I can easily go a week or ten days without ever turning on my oven.

How about you? Do you like to BAKE?
