    We have dessert most of the time. We're like Craftynell, we don't need it either.LOL I don't feel like I have had a meal if I don't have dessert. I bake a lot.

    I would LOVE to eat dessert on a daily basis!! But we do serve it especially on holidays or family gatherings. Otherwise we have ice cream or cookies on a more frequent basis.

    We like dessert. I usually make something once a week, lasts a few days and then ice cream (spicy pop corn for me) on the other days.

    We unfortunately do dessert every lunch, our big meal of the day. It can be cookies, left over Halloween candy, home made ice cream or cut up pineapple. When I grew up we seldom had dessert, once a week or so,but plain white low fat yogurt was offered as dessert. I still like things without sugar.

    I was brought up with dessert, actually it was used as a reward, if you dont clean your plate you dont get dessert. Leading to a life long emotional relationship with food. When I got married and had children I decided to have no emotions attached to food. You are hungry you eat, you are not hungry you dont eat. So my children, now young adults, can take or leave sweets, and have healthy eating habits. We always had snacks, healthy and unhealthy and they could pick and choose. I still struggle with the deep rooted, good girls clean their plates lol. What was amusing, is when the kids where little and stayed at my parents, when they came home they would ask what was for dessert. lol

    LIFE IS SHORT .... EAT DESSERT FIRST. My DH and I often eat dessert first when we are traveling because most hotels know where the best desserts are served. Growing up we rarely had sweet desserts, always a fruit but my DH grew up in a house where dessert was a must after a meal. So we now have dessert with each meal. Sometimes we eat dessert first at home but it usually a bowl of fruit with some kind of sauce or whip cream of top.

    I remember being told to eat all my food cause starving children in China (or elsewhere) would really be thankful for it. As a child I always wondered how my eating helped them! Worst of all for me was green beans. I would mix them with potatoes or anything to hide the taste. Once I pushed them under the rim of my plate. When Mom picked up the plate to wash it, there they were. I had to eat them then, with nothing else, and they were cold and awful. Never tried that again . I still don't like green beans today.

    usually only have desserts for special occasions, we don't need the extra calories. If the grandkids are coming, I will make brownies or something easy.
