Would you be embarrassed to share a really trashy recipe?

For Thursday's big Independence Day party, one of my contributions was an Oreo Cream Pie, which my 6yo daughter begged to make after seeing it on the cover of a magazine at the supermarket checkout. It was DEVOURED and raved about. I have since received phone calls, emails, and texts asking for the recipe, both from people who had some and people who "missed out" but have heard about it. I am unashamedly telling them all about it: premade Oreo pie crust; filling of cream cheese, sugar, Cool Whip, vanilla pudding mix, and crushed Oreos; topping of more Cool Whip and more crumbled Oreos. Even shared my "secret" that the recipe called for 8 crushed Oreos, and we instead used a whole package of The Double Stuff ones. My (much more image-conscious than me, apparently) sister just said to me "I cannot BELIEVE you are admitting to people that you actually served that crap!" She seems really bothered. What, should I have pretended it was made from real whipped cream and chocolate wafers and homemade cooked custard?
