How do you tell someone their cooking is awful?

I know this is silly but I have a friend who does not cook well but she always wants to cook for me. I made the mistake of telling her I enjoyed her food a lot and I got stuck in a pattern of her asking me over once a week now to eat dinner. I am not sure how to tell her without hurting her feelings! 😩 😩

Hmm, I am not sure what I would do!

I would feel terrible saying something. Maybe instead of telling her, offer to cook with her. Get her to try some better spices and cooking methods to improve what she is making for you.

If you don't say anything, you will be stuck in a cycle of always lying to your friend. It is best to come clean about it and just say you didn't want to hurt her feelings but you feel even worse for lying. She might take it to heart and be upset but it is better to be honest with her if she means something to you.

I agree about just telling them. If I was in the same position I think I would hesitate like you are but I would ultimately tell them. It is better to told a hard truth than an easy lie!
