Gratitude should be #1 on Thanksgiving, but honesty can be a lot further down on the list. Of course, I’m only talking about “Honesty” when it comes to claiming you actually cooked that dish you brought to Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s how to pull it off. Shhh.
So you brought a dish to Thanksgiving dinner and claimed you cooked it, but actually you picked it up at the store? If you don’t want the embarrassment of being caught, remember this: Perfection is the tell, especially with baked goods. If you buy a cake from a bakery, tear little pieces off the bottom and the sides to make it look like some stuck in the pan, and smear that frosting around in a haphazard way (do this to cupcakes, too).
For “Homemade Bread” if it looks a little too pro, tear it up into a few pieces and throw it in a basket.
And don’t bring Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, sure it’s delish, but the bright orange is a dead giveaway.
