The Most Hilarious Soul Food Fails

Soul food fails that won't leave you asking for a second helping.

Happy Southern Food Heritage Day! Celebrate today with heaping helpings of macaroni and cheese, cornbread, and sweet potato pie. Soul food has become a staple of our dinner tables, but not everyone can exactly throw it down in the kitchen. Making stick-to-your-ribs smothered pork or cakes like Ms. Patti is way harder than it looks. Celebrities and home chefs alike deal with overcooked green beans, undercooked fried chicken and other failed dishes. These hilarious soul food moments will have you leaving without asking for seconds.

Kim Kardashian's Soul Food Sunday

Kim Kardashian is known for a lot of things but cooking ain't one of them. The reality star-who we've never seen cook anything more than packaged noodles on television-tried her hand at soul food as part of her "Soul Food Sunday" dinner party. One look at the bland, dry plate above and she was mercilessly dragged. 

Cooking With Kylie


Bad cooking skills seem to run in the family. When Kylie Jenner tried to cook soul food for her boyfriend, she didn't fare any better than big sister Kim. Poor Tyga couldn't stomach half the plate.

What's Eating Martha?

Martha Stewart has made a career out of making things good. Somehow, the domestic goddess found a way to ruin a wedge salad with the worst photography ever. Here's the offensive salad with a side of soup. Try not to get grossed out.

Healthy Mac


Mac N' Cheese by @cara_schrock 💛 Dairy-free, soy-free & gluten-free! Recipe: Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups yellow potatoes, peeled and diced (about 2 medium potatoes) 1 cup carrot, chopped 1/4 cup yellow onion, diced 2 cups water plus another 1/4 cup, divided 1/2 cup coconut milk, full-fat preferred 1/2 cup raw cashews, pre-soaked in water for 20+ minutes to soften 1/4 cup nutritional yeast 1 tbs ground flax seed, optional 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, optional smoked paprika powder for garnishing, optional 1 bag of gluten free pasta or pasta of choice . Cheese Sauce: Makes a little over 4 cups Simmer the potato, carrot and onion in a covered pan with 2 cups of water for 20 minutes. Soak cashews while vegetables simmer. After 20 minutes, pour the veggies and their water into your blender. Drain and rinse the cashews and add them to the blender, along with the nutritional yeast, turmeric, sea salt, garlic powder (if using), coconut milk and the remaining 1/4 cup of water. Blend on high until the sauce is creamy and smooth, if a thinner consistency is preferred, add more coconut milk or water, a tablespoon at a time and blend again. If a cheesier taste is preferred, add another cup of nutritional yeast. Set sauce aside. . Pasta: Cook pasta according to package, drain and rinse with cold water Return pasta to the pan over low heat and pour in the desired amount of cheese sauce and let cook, stirring frequently, until warmed throughout. Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with smoked paprika #letscookvegan

We get that soul food isn't the healthiest cuisine. Mac and cheese has a ton of calories but it's the real cheese and butter that makes the dish so rich and creamy. If you're cooking with mac and cheese with ingredients like butternut squash and cashews, it's not really mac and cheese. 


Vegans need love too but some dishes just go too far in the swaps department. This "vegan fried chicken" looks like a mutant from a lab. We'll just fill up on bread. Thanks.


Devil Eggs

Every home cook deals with food fails. Here's the unholy result when deviled eggs are kept boiling a tad too long. 


Lies and Pies

Soul food is about cooking from your heart, not buying someone else's pies. Khloe Kardashian learned the hard way when she showed off picture-perfect pies that she claimed were homemade. Too bad they looked an awful lot like those sold in a famous Los Angeles bakery.
