Dirty Kitchen Secrets

The social news site has been ablaze with one user's response to the question: "What's your secret that could literally ruin your life if it came out?"

Take a look at the net's most popular response:

I had to laugh -- because I do a similar fake! 

My signature dish is one I learned from my father -- a cheesey rice and vegetable dish, made by adding ingredients from a box of Near East rice pilaf.

However, I REGULARLY pass it off as a risotto! 


What are your dirty kitchen secrets? I'd love to hear!!


  1. Sometimes, I'll order in delivery. Then if my friends ask, I'll say it's DiGiorno. I can't confess to them that my cooking skills are so limited I have to order in pizza because I can't even heat it properly myself.

  2. I make a pretty decent shepherd's pie. The mashed potatoes on top come from a box.

    I used to make a pretty decent non-dairy chocolate pie. The main ingredient (and pretty much only ingredient) was Nasoya Silken Style Creations Non-Dairy Silken Tofu - Dark Chocolate. The pie got rave reviews. Unfortunately, the local grocery stores stopped selling this product and since I couldn't figure out an alternate way to make the chocolate filling, I stopped making the pie.

    Also, growing up, my mom used very little fat when cooking to make everything healthier, e.g. using cooking spray instead of butter or oil, using low-fat mayonnaise. If my mom knew how much butter/oil/margarine/mayonnaise I use when I cook now....well, I can't imagine her reaction!
