    My father grew up having dessert every day. My mother solved that by giving it to him in his lunch. We only had it on special occasions. If there were fresh berries my mother made pies. She was a wonderful baker. My husband and I rarely have dessert at home, but love it out, once in a while. I often make it for our community pot luck. Have to try out some of the wonderful recipes I have seen on here!

    Dessert is not a regular part of our daily life, but I do make and serve something when we have company. Even if it's the kids and grands. I used to do a lot of baking, but we would have something later in the evening or whenever, not right after a meal. Now, because of various issues, we watch our diets more closely.

    We don't serve dessert unless its a holiday. But I do bake cookies often and we keep frozen snacks in the freezer. They are mostly for my husband.

    My father, in his mid 80's, comes to my house for dinner every Sunday - so on Sunday I make dessert because he likes it. Other than that, a square of chocolate in the evening is all I generally want.

    With company, always, but, we don't have company as much as we used to. No family nearby. Mr. Stitchnripper and I enjoy a cookie or a tiny sweet along with decaf tea later in the evening.
