Do/would you give baked goods as holiday gifts?



  • Yes, I usually bake and share!
  • Yes, I purchase pre-made baked goods
  • I don't consider food a gift
  • I'm not into baking
  • Other, because there's always an 'other' : )

I used to bake tons of goodies and give tins to friends and neighbors, but with dh on a low fat diet, I don't want to tempt him. It seems all the best recipes start out with at least a cup of butter.

Isn't that the truth, Jan -- butter and sugar!

HI Cindi


I don't bake much anymore. When my kids lived at home I did do a lot of baking around the holidays and would make cookies and homemade bread and take some around to my neighbors. Never lived close to my family once I got married so only would make something for the holiday after we would get to their homes.


Like Jan we now have to watch our fat intake so it takes a bit more to find those recipies that are low fat. Easier to avoid the extra calories if I just don't bake that much any more. Love it though when our Dgs comes to spend a week with us during the Christmas holiday while he visits with his dad. I can bake without having to worry about who is going to eat it all. At 7 years old he loves baked goodies and they are never sitting around tempting me for long.

Cindi, iVillage does have a couple of low fat recipes, but they sound more involved than I want to get. One even calls for yeast, rolled oats and whole wheat flour! I want fast and easy!


Oh, well, if you check epicurious, out of many banana bread
