i also do not bake because i do not like having sweets in the house, for the simple fact that i have no self control and am liable to eat all 4 dozen cookies in one afternoon.
however, my precious husband loves sweets. now i need to explain that when we met he did not need or want dessert every night. this changed when i was pregnant with cooper. he began asking every night what was for dessert or if we had anything sweet in the house? ( i don't buy sweets either). his craving for sweets at night has remained.
for the past two sundays i have felt the urge to make cookies, maybe its that nesting urge kicking in or maybe its because it makes precious husband so happy. after all, he has been cooking, doing laundry, and cleaning since he has been off work (ok, he always cleans, but i am very thankful i don't have to). i have stuck with cookie making, last week chocolate peanut chip and this week oatmeal butterscotch chip, nothing too fancy. and they are not all the same size or color. some are a little more crisp than others. but.....i have already eaten way too many cookies for one day.
which do you prefer cooking or baking?
