Ummmm...your secret's out.

This was delightful!

What mothers (and husbands) don't know won't hurt them, huh? Loved reading this poem, great job!

This was a lot of fun - definitely made me laugh. I had a hard time catching the rhythm of this - seemed kind of choppy, to me, anyway. Still, quite clever and fun.
Very clever and fun poem...and a great tribute to Betty, Jimmy, Debbie, and Aunt Jemima!
I really, really liked this poem. I got it! I liked the rhythm and I liked the slant end ryhming as well as the perfect end ryhming. Very nice poem!

Creative and so funny. Good work on the meter and rhyme. Well done.

This is so cute and clever. All those names never came together in my head, but you spotted a fresh idea for this assignment! I did miss "Uncle Ben," however (smile), as his name is part of our family!

The poet who doesn't cook left out my favorite Sara Lee also, Edy; and Hector Boiardi, (the guy who made Boyardee spaghetti sauce famous). lol
A thoroughly delightful poem! Well done!
MOVE OVER, MARILYN, YOU'VE GOT COMPANY!

Without the Food Network
I surely would die.
I can't make an omelet
Or bake a french fry.

My pies are pathetic
My tarts taste like fish;
No wonder my cooking
Goes in the dog's dish

If Marilyn can do it
(and she says she can),
I better learn fast
Or I won't catch a man!
