Simple...I don't cook anything like that. It's just me and hubby, and he's pretty on-board with healthy cooking. If he doesn't like it...too bad. When he starts cooking, then he can have a say in what gets made. I imagine it will be that way with our kids, too. I guess I grew up in a family where if I didn't eat what was put in front of me (and my mom is a good cook, btw), then I didn't eat!

I have made both brownies and cookies for special occasions. On a daily basis, I don't cook anything that I can't eat. My husband and sons have started cooking the sweets however. They are considerate about keeping them out of sight and I can handle the temptation as long as I don't have to keep walking by them.

"So, does anyone else have this problem? What food drives you crazy to fix for others that you know you can not have?"

Of course! What food doesn't drive me crazy fixing it? I love any food. Mostly I have started fixing only one meal but occasionaly I will fix something for me and something for me family. Two weeks ago I fixed homemade spaghetti for my family and I had spinach quiche. I made my first and ate so I wouldn't be hungry. the smell of the spaghetti and the garlic bread nearly drove me insane. I find that most of the time I can resist it, or if it's something I like I work it into my plan. Other times like last week when AF visits I find I have a harder time resisting the urge.

I don't really cook anything I shouldn't eat. My kids are young enough to not really remember all the junky food that I used to cook

chocolate chip cookies... I love the dough and the finished product. It's so hard not to over indulge. It's a food that has a very high emotional attachment to me (childhood and all that...) so I rarely make cookies or bake any sweets anymore. When I do, I try to encourage my husband to take them with him to work, so there aren't too many in the house.

Some might wonder why I bother to bake at all anymore. Honestly, baking is one of my favorite things to do. I love how they make the house smell, I love mixing the ingredients, I love watching things rise in the oven... It's a treat just to partake in the process.
