So there's an episode of Friends where Monica is trying to recreate Phoebe's grandma's famous chocolate chip cookie recipe, which Phoebe pronounces Ness-lay Tool Housa (Nestle Tollhouse).

As a joke, when friends/family ask me about my recipe, I want to tell them it's Duncan Hines pronounced in a French accent. (I want to see which ones figure it out. LOL) However, since I don't speak French, I'm not quite sure how to pronounce it. I thought maybe Dune Can He Nay. Anyone have any other suggestions?

That's funny, try this:

Nun Ya Business!

Of course, my family knows my old secrets (just not my new ones)!

LOL Well, I don't mind telling people it's a doctored mix... I just wanted to try and be funny when I did it.

I understand.

Sometimes I would like to tell some people in French, Russian, Japanese or any language they wouldn't know what I was saying. Just because it's my "rotten" personality!

This is too funny! I love the episode when Phoebe does that and then finds out that it's on the chocolate chip bag! You should totally do it and I like the way you've figured out to pronounce it!

I did a wedding cake once and the grandfather came up to tell me he owned a bakery and my cake tasted wonderful. Was it an old family recipe ? I said someones. I use Dundan hines. He said well keep on using it and tell people it is your Uncle Hines old family recipe.
