One, it's really hard to bake for a home of two people. Especially a home of two people who like to lead relatively healthy lives. Even lower fat recipes aren't, really. And a lot of times, lower fat doesn't taste 100% great.
Two, some things (pies, cakes, tarts - really anything that isn't portioned in a smaller size) are hard to share with other people. It's easy enough to make a batch of cookies or cupcakes and bring half of the treats into the office. But it's less easy to do that with a fruit pie, you know?
Three, I lack willpower in a major way. It begins while I'm actually doing the baking (ie, I eat the equivalent of about 3-4 servings worth of batter). And then after they're actually baked? Even though it's easy to bring half a batch of cookies to work - it's also
And so even though Fall beckons me to pull out the sugar and flour, I try to resist the temptation as much as I can. Although yesterday I did make some banana/oat/craisin muffins that are pretty awes (as shown in the picture).
Do you guys ever get the itch to bake? If so, how do you avoid becoming 100 lbs overweight in the process?
