Haha. Me. Normally I stick to Chocolate chip cookies every once in awhile. I’ve recently made those, fudge, snicker doodles, cinnamon-sugar cookies, and I’m making KMSull’s Pumpkin Cupcakes now! haha. Not to mention the fact I’ve been making better dinners!

ME! I want to bake cookies and fancy food and everything. Not even funny. Cooking really relaxes me though and osmetimes i have to force myself NOT to make something. Especially if i have nobody to pawn it off on.Then i just eat it and feel like a fatty =]

Yes! I always gain a few pounds in the winter for that very reason. I don’t even eat that much of what I make, I think it’s just being inside and testing little bits of everything instead of working out, etc. 

But it’s so fun to perfect recipes and experiment with baking/cooking!

I have a huge desire to bake a million things right now!  The only problem is that if I do, I will eat them all and not be able to fit into my clothes!

@Crebre-you betcha! Though it’s not that much of a secret any more. lol. Oh, I made Eggnog cookies and a vegan chocolate cake with orange glaze, too! I love watching food network when I get the channel, but that’s really rare. I think I also bake more because FI’s mom and Future Sister-In-Law are really into it and it’s rubbing off on me.

I love the feeling of satisfaction I get when people enjoy my cooking – it’s like a high! Haha. Sometimes I feel like Monica on Friends.

Oh my gosh, yes! I loooove holiday cooking and baking. I’m usually a light to moderate chef during the rest of the season, but something about the holiday season turns me into Martha Stewart.
