Is making cookies from a bag (like Betty Crocker's sugar or choc. chip) qualify for homemade? Upnorth
I would have to say NO. But, that does not mean that they are not tasty and completely acceptable to serve. You could doctor them up a bit or if you are taking them to a party, put a few minutes into the presentation.
But, as with everything in life, be upfront and honest. When I get compliments on pre-made food, which just has to happen sometimes when you have kids and 3,248 other things to get done in a day (I hear all my foodie friends GASPING ), I say, "I was up all night making that". Then I say, not really, and tell them what brand it is.
As if we as women need one more thing to feel inadequate about, girl, just get that roll of dough and pop them in the oven. Remember, it is the thought that counts and the people you want to surround yourself with in this life will be perfectly happy with Betty Crocker as long as you are there with them.
