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.

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.
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.
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.
