    I find lately that I'm posting an awful lot about donuts, candy and cup cakes. I don't actually eat a lot of sweets but my god they taste so good that the thought of them just makes me a bit crazy... I'm craving the party in my mouth!

    I eat fairly regularly so I'm never really hungry, it's all appetite. I eat more for fuel than fun but I get obsessed with certain foods and can't get them out of my head...

    Today I'm having visions of these specialty donuts from a cafe called Dynamo Donuts
    http://www.dynamodonut.com.html
    It's driving me cuckoo right now and if given the option of a Dynamo Donut or sex.. I'd opt for the donut.
    Does foods drive anyone else crazy with desire?

    Damn you!!!

    For some reason I cant crave my own backing or cooking... I think iot is becuase I feel it is more exotic if I don't know what it is...
    Or maybe cause my cooking sucks...

    hahaha my cooking is pretty damned good, but, I think it's more then just the finished product, I love the whole process of cooking, preparing, thinking and exploring it...

    Yes…yes, I have this weird craving for Hot tamales (the candy) this and Twirlers, I can’t explain it I’ve never been a candy person but I have to have some at least a couple times a week.
    The thing is I cannot find the Hot Tamales anywhere they have diapered from the market place. I have even gone online search to find them or find out if there has been a secret recall of them.
    Until I can organize a campaign to get them back I’ve resorted to fire jelly beans—just not the same.

    Well my problem is that while I cook I am constantly thinking of the post cooking cleanup. The more I explore the more I am going to need to clean up. oops..No pun intended.

    besides a fluctuating addiction to chocolate, i rarely crave food,perhaps cheese cake now and then.

    and when i'm hungry i turn into a kitchen tasmanian devil, i just grab whatever is edible and gobble it up, no patience for cooking.

    so, yeah, not so much craving than eating compulsively

    Wow... you just sang my song. That explains my daily process to a 'T'.
    No patience, no patience whatsoever.

    On the way home I went to the candy store/confiserie around the corner from my apartment and got a ginger cup cake.. it was a little piece of heaven... *sigh*

    I crave salty snacks with trans fats.
    But, now that they've outlawed trans fats, the stupid snack manufacturers have doubled the salt content.
    Gag !
    I miss jalapeno flavored Doritos...

    Tater Tots

    They were the last vestige of white starches that I had to remove from my diet. It was and still is very hard to deny their gravity. icon_sad.gif

    About 3 or 4 times a year, I get an uncontrollable craving for donuts.
    It takes all my willpower to not break down and drive to Dunkin Donuts for a half dozen chocolate covered creme filled.

    In Boston, it's just about impossible to walk a block and not run into a Dunkin Donuts (Dunkie's as some mentally challenged locals call it.) There are five (5) in my neighborhood and five (5) within a block or two of my office. Despite all the easy access, I never go in (ok, well maybe for a ice coffee...) but the donuts don't tempt me. It's just that everything there, even the coffee, tastes like, well, donuts.

    Ok ok ok I admit it - I do eat sweets. I eat them all the time. I can't pass the simple pleasure by.

    I subscribe to Cooking Lite and bon appetit and the first things I turn to are deserts. So there I've spilled the beans about my simple pleasure. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have a piece of cake.
