I keep the sweets to a minimum at my house; we generally don't have dessert after dinner unless it's fruit. Borrowing a tactic straight from the first lady's playbook, I have been known to respond to the question "Can I have pie?" with "Didn't you have pie last night?" To help keep my own consumption down on the baked goods we make together, since my willpower is not the strongest and I have no trouble reaching the cookie jar, I try to share the leftovers with neighbors.
