The Gross List

I love Pinterest just as much as the next girl. You kind of become a Pinterest snob if you were one of the "originals"... or got it before the rest of your friends did :P
  Anyway, I have had my share of cooking mishaps. When I found Pinterest, I felt like a chef or a rejuvenated Julia Childs. Maybe even Rachel Ray. There have been a few wins on the list, like 4 ingredient Garlic Chicken Parmesan and the Pumpkin Dump Cake. I can't forget Best Broccoli Ever. As expected and predicted by Ryan, there are a few things that have made it to the dreaded "What the H. E. Double Hockey Stick Is This Sh-t List." So, I present to you "The Gross List".

The Gross List
Ranch Crock Pot Pork Chops with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
Sounds good, huh? Looks amazing, right? Well, it wasn't good- and it looked like dog poop on snow.

Ranch Crock Pot Potatoes
They burned in the crock pot. They smelled like a rotten salad. They were nasty.

  Crock Pot Potato Soup
Sounds easy enough. This was thick, lumpy and gross. I think I even took a picture of this one after I made it.
The best looking thing in this picture is obviously my Fiesta bowl.

I find it funny that the majority of my cooking successes ( and I use that lightly ) have been desserts. What can I say? I love dessert! 

Lessons learned:
 Ranch+ Crock Pot= Gross
Try to cook something other than a potato. Or a frozen form of a potato.

If you run across these pins, just Say NO. Or else, your family will look like this.


  1. hahaha Everything we've tried with ranch and the crock pot we have hated too! EVERYTHING.I felt like one week we only cooked crock pot meals, all of which required cream of something and ranch..all different recipes. They ended up all tasting the same....gross

  2. Glad you shared this list because those all sounded amazing but not now.
