Do You Buy Food From Catalogs?

I’m always tempted by my favorite kitchen store's food selection — especially during the holiday season when I see more goodies to choose from than usual. Still, in this economy, it's hard fro me to imagine shelling out a lot of money for marshmallows, cookies, or cakes when I can make many of the offerings myself. What about you?

No, but now I am interested to shop around. I hear a ton of great things about the food from QVC.

Some stuffs from Williams Sonoma and Neiman Marcus look great and would make amazing gifts.

Only Perfect Endings Cupcakes from Williams-Sonoma. We buy them once or twice a year; so delicious and worth every penny. :drool:

Never, but not because I can make them myself. Just because I don't really have the cash. I never end up making anything I see in a catalog.

Never, instead I just stare and drool......

I said never but not because I can make it cheaper, but because I live in Canada, so most the places won't ship here and if they do it costs a fortune.

Am I "stealing" if I see it in the catalogue and copy it for gifts? I confess that's what I did when I saw some of the food gifts offered by Crate and Barrel and others. I about fainted when I saw their prices for peppermint bark, shortbread, and chocolate-coverd pretzels. Mine might not be as pretty as theirs, but the food is still very tasty. ;)

But.. if you're buying it for someone else, you're still buying it. :P

No way. I can do it better myself, and fresh is always better than processed and packaged.

i wish that you had another option. for me, it's not one of those answers. i never buy stuff for myself, but i've ordered stuff as a gift for the holidays for someone else :) i think that sometimes things like that make for nice presents when you want to send something, but you don't want to send flowers

I love baking too much, it would ruin my fun to have something delivered.

I can't justify the shipping and handling they always charge. I can spend WAY less than that on gas and ingredients combined. So yeah, I never order any food through the mail.

Yeah, I can make everything myself too, it might not be as pretty, but I know it's yummy and I know what's in it.

I've never ordered food from a catalog. In general I don't order from catalogs. Everything is online these days!

I learned a long time ago from Swiss Colony that those pictures are a little *ahem* overstated in size. Without seeing something in person, I'm just not good at judging how much I'm actually getting for the price.

Nope. But I do eat them with my eyes. :D I never buy stuff from a catalogs to beginwith.. even though I always have 5 coming in every month. :p
