Could use your input on this... Please?

Here's the story.
I am having company this weekend from overseas. They are sleeping at my house and I have been cooking up a storm! I am thrilled to have them as I haven't seen them in some time and I am so happy to be returning the favor of them having hosted me on many occasions...
That being said - I made some amazing food... Like amazing.
My house smells SO good right now.
I want to enjoy myself and relax, but I don't want to make myself crazy with tracking every little taste I take of something. I would have to input every recipe (I tried four new recipes that look SO good) and then figure out how much my "taste" was....
I think it will just not be the relaxed and fun weekend I want.
That being said - I don't plan to go overboard... I will watch - I just don't want to track. Just until tomorrow night... 24 hours.
To show you just how much I want to be able to taste and still keep on track... I made deep dish chocolate chip cookies in ramekins. They are INSANE!!! Also almost 500 calories each!
So I took some batter aside and made some mini cupcakes just so I can taste without indulging in a whole one or having a "bite" of someone else's. I am PLANNING!
So... Any thoughts?
