As part of her “12 Days of Giveaways,” Ellen DeGeneres decided to do a quick review of actual Thanksgiving recipes from real cookbooks that no one should ever make, including Frozen Cheese Salad, The Shrimp Tree, White Mystery Fruit Cake, and a Candle Salad (i.e. the dirtiest looking dessert ever).
Her main tip? “Never eat anything with the word “mystery” in it.” Wise words, Ellen.
Check out her review, and please, unless you hate your family, don’t serve them candle salad.
