How often do you use BKT and what are your customary settings?

I'm not much for over baked HDR but I do like some of the shots that I've seen where bracketing was used to slightly enhance the photo. I've been messing with my D800 settings and just thought I'd ask some of you guys that use bracketing if you'd share some of your photos, settings and procedures for shooting in bracketing mode.

I'm not sure what step increments to use and in which situations to adjust the varying degrees of steps, or which of the exposures 3, 5 or 7 is typical and for which situations.

I've been doing some searches but it gets to be a bit overwhelming at times so I thought I'd ask my Nikon family for a little guidance.
