Do You Lick the Bowl?

Yesterday PartySugar wanted to know if you sample the food while you cook. I usually sample, and I sometimes lick the spoon! How about you? Do you lick the bowl when you're done?

I love to do it, but the thought of raw eggs in the mixture grosses me out a bit! That doesn't usually stop me for long though... hehe.

Oh yes! I love to lick the bowl, beaters, and spoon :) I especially do when I make brownies! It is just wrong not to :) I've doing that since I can remember and I will continue doing it too!!!

I have this bad habit of making a batch of brownies, eating the leftover batter, and by the time the brownies are baked, I've had my fill on rich chocolate goodness :p

I always have!!!!! Cake batter, cookie dough, icing etc. The whole raw egg thing doesnt bother me. The odds of becoming ill from a raw egg in a batter is pretty big. Im 20 and having licking bowls since I could stand and have yet to get sick

Yes and I really don't care if it's bad for me or not! I've been doing it since age 3 and haven't succumbed to anything serious so I plan on continuing because it's the reward for baking!!!!!

I can't not. I even lick the beaters, well once they're unplugged and removed. Cake batter is the best!
