i'm over sugar: juicer giveaway

*if you're new here, i'm doing a series on cutting out sugar and how it was a heart issue for me.

here is part 1 of the series that explains what the heart is behind all this and what my symptoms of crappiness were.
here is the second part: 8 steps to steps to stop feeling like crap
-----------


if you're ever needing a little pick me up and motivation to continue on the #imoversugar quest, i would highly suggest watching Fat ,Sick &Nearly Dead. it's on netflix if you have this magic. we just got net flix last month and i'm pretty sure the Lord was like, oh hey, this is isn't a coincidence that you have 15 food documentaries at your disposal and i'm asking you to cut out sugar. now..watch some documentaries about health just so you know what you're doing to your body. 

ELLL OHH ELLL, God.

awkward silence. fine. i'm going to watch them all and cry at the crazy stories of lives devastated by bad food. stupid food!

and what i loved from this documentary was the general knowledge i gained about macro and micro nutrients. you can watch a little snippet here that is super helpful. they were saying that you can these magical micro nutrients best through juicing, as it's almost impossible to get mass amounts through actually eating the fruits and veggies. you'd have to eat all day long and most of us don't want to nor can we. i mean, there are lots of things that you'll feel like you should and shouldn't do...but we can't do them all. remember to keep it simple. for these next 6 weeks, focus on sugar out and nutrients in. juicing is a great way to do that, but not the only way.





and so that leads me to this!!

  1. Yes to giving up sugar!!! And yes to juices...I had a delightful concoction at a friend's house the other day: juiced red bell peppers, carrots, ginger and cayenne pepper. It sure woke me up :) Would love to win the juicer so I can recreate the Molotov's cocktail at home.

  2. I watched that documentary, so interesting!

    I tried to make sweet potato mole once with chocolate and cinnamon, it turned out so gross. Chocolate and savory needs to be left to the experts :)

  3. I once made a cake for a friend's birthday that looked like someone had already chewed it up and spit it out after I iced it. So now I'm so over sugar!

  4. I absolutely butchered an attempt to make hot cross buns for easter. They never rose and came out flat and dense. My husband kindly offered to eat them all week to cheer me up.

  5. I could take up a week telling you times I've messed up a new recipe, but I'll leave it at the worst I've ever done: SPAGHETTI. I left the sauce on, bubbling, and forgot to stir for like 45 minutes. I just laughed, went to get Chickfila, and said, "Welcome to marriage, babe!" to my brand new husband. He's stuck by my terrible cooking for 5 whole years! :)

  6. um, Pioneer Woman's Mac and Cheese. I cooked 4 lbs. of macaroni instead of 4 cups. YES it was ridiculous. and hilarious.

  7. one time i made cake and swapped the water and oil requirements. i mean, it was so tasty. not.

  8. What a fun giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win.

    For the record, I can't cook a baked potato well to save my life. It could be in the oven one hour or eight... it always turns out hard! Uggg.

  9. I attempted to make spaghetti with meatballs and ended up with spaghetti with meatsauce. Not a single meatball held its shape!!

  10. Last winter, my husband and I were going snowboarding for the day. We put some BBQ beef in the crockpot so it would be all yummy by the time we got home. When we got home, we found our BBQ beef burned into the crockpot, unedible. We didn't add enough water apparently. Oops, so sad...

  11. WANT. NEED. a juicer!
    i tried to make a spinach/banana/mango/strawberry/soy milk/protein powder smoothie with my hand blender… no good.
    would love to explore with a new juicer!!

  12. The very first time that I made bacon I added grease to the pan... because, you know, you always have to add grease when frying things so they don't stick. So much grease was splattering out of the pan I'm surprised that I didn't start a fire! LOL. Lesson learned!

  13. Once I spent the best part of a day making a deep dish pizza for my chicago lovin husband. The dough was beautiful and the sauce was fresh but I managed to burn the onions that went in the sauce and literally made the entire thing taste disgusting. I have since redeemed myself, but we will never forget it. womp womp. My husband and I start "no sugar April" today in hopes of changing our lifestyle. Thanks for the added inspiration!

  14. Oh where do I begin! I once used 1/4 cups of salt (instead of 1/4 teaspoon) in cornbread, and just recently dumped a bunch of flour on an apple pie instead of combining it with butter. Yikes..

    ReplyDelete
  15. this giveaway better not be an april fool's joke, jami! :) for some crazy reason i made a buffalo chicken recipe that you make in the crockpot. i was new to the crockpot ways so i confidently tossed all of the ingredients in the crock pot, waited patiently ALL DAY LONG as dinner cooked. it was time to taste the gloriousness, so i set the table, portioned out dinner, sat down delighted at how easy this dinner was. i took my first bite and IT WAS AWFUL! so salty and spicy and just disgusting. we tossed the entire contents of the crockpot and went to plan b. ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  16. YES!! I want a juicer soooo bad!
    Here's my flopped recipe. http://www.hungryrunnergirl.com/2013/02/16325.html
    I actually thought that it was good, but my 4 year old son and my husband didn't care for it at all. They said that it tasted too healthy!

    Mission accomplished! I really want to try it again - I think its worth the fight:)

  17. Rolls. I've attempted many times and it NEVER fails they turn out TERRIBLE.

  18. Any kind of yeast bread - don't know what it is, but they never rise for me!

  19. oh there are so many "meals ruined my beth stories". i'm just not an excellent cook. the most recent is that i was cooking a dinner for my family and my sick friends family in the crock pot...all day. we are talking about a pretty good amount of food here because i was feeding two families. someone talked me in to using one of those stupid plastic liners for the crock pot. dumb. i opened it up to stir it that evening and could just smell plastic. being kind of crazy about plastic i couldn't bear to feed this plastic smelling chicken to my family or my friends. so i ordered us both a pizza and called it a night.

  20. So last summer my husband and I watched Forks over Knives and to my pleasant purprise he asked me to start cooking more vegan meals for us. I love to cook and saw this as a challenge, but I knew I had to make truly yummy meals or he wouldn't stick to it. Well anyways, one of the WORST meals I have ever made was trying stir fry with spaghetti squash instead of chow main noodles. It. was. terrible. I knew it smelled like wet dog before setting it before him on the table, but when both of us gagged while trying to eat it, we HAD to throw it out. haha I think it was some weird mix between the soy sauce and the squash? Bleck. Seriously, terrible. haha We laugh about it often though. :)

  21. Would love a juicer! I made a pasta recipe with balsamic and spinach... yuck would not make again!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have always wanted a juicer! So many fun juice recipes out there! I butchered a recipe for homemade cinnamon rolls. They didn't rise & were so hard I am pretty sure they could have been a weapon!

    ReplyDelete
  23. loved that doc!! love you, and thanks for this chance.

    nothing exciting, but years ago the first time i ever made chicken fettuccini alfredo, i used some random recipe online. followed it exactly. super terrible, no flavor, glumpy and weird. now, i only make recipes that people i know have tried and loved. i'm snobby like that.

    there were two girls behind me in line at the market recently:
    "what's the ketchup for?"
    "bloody marys!"
    "omg, i love those!!!!"

    they could enter this giveaway, because i'm pretty sure that didn't turn out as hoped.

  24. Homemade Mac and Cheese. I know. Shouldn't be hard, but everytime I try, it's NASTY! I've given up and just buy Annies.

    Just starting on our i'm over sugar journey..would LOVE a juicer!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My first crockpot make-ahead meal (and last so far): Teriyaki Chicken. I think the recipe duplicated the teriyaki sauce when it should have been water. We had to throw the entire thing out.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I tried to make an enchilada bake without using cheese and used this "cheezee" sauce from a vegan cookbook...GROSS! At least I tried though, ha. I would LOVE a juicer! My hubby is obsessed with "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead."

    ReplyDelete
  27. first time i ever attempted to make dinner for my husband i did not cook the chicken long enough. nothing like sitting down and taking a big bite of raw orange chicken!

    ReplyDelete
  28. When I first started cooking, all of my recipes came from the back of Campbell's soup cans. Not only were they terrible for me, but they also tasted awful!

  29. I've had a couple of risotto incidents that have left me not wanting to finish my dinner. But now we're trying to eat clean anyway - so risotto doesn't quite fit the bill. :)

  30. {new follower here!} Where do I begin? It seems I have trouble with desserts - I added too much nutmeg to a homemade apple pie, forgot to bake the crust for a rhubarb pie, and shrank gluten free pineapple cupcakes (GF baking is a challenge in itself, so I feel that one isn't totally my fault).

    I used to juice all the time as my MIL lent me her juicer and have been having withdrawals since I had to return it to her! Love this series you are doing and look forward to hearing more!

  31. I just made Sweet Potato Carrot Cakes for dinner the other night. My amazing will-eat-anything-you-make husband threw up in his throat. I thought I followed the recipe...

  32. For Thanksgiving a couple of years ago, my sister and I were in charge of dessert. My sister whipped up a gorgeous Martha Stewart apple pie, and I struggled to successfully create a pumpkin pie. It tasted delicious, except for the first bite I took to "test it" and realized I had somehow baked a piece of glass into it. GLASS. IN THE PIE.

  33. I once tried to make snickerdoodles, but had a dumb-moment when I read that I needed two 3/4s cups of flour instead of 2 AND 3/4s cups of flour. The cookies were a little...more like crackers.

    I would love to get into juicing and would really LOVE to make my own salsa!

    ReplyDelete
  34. um, whaaaaat! this would be the hugest blessing everrrr for my family. we used to juice when I was little, but our juicer broke, and after staying at my grandparents last weekend, I was introduced to juicing again from my aunt and I AM HOOKED. better than any sugary treat, fo sho.

    let's see. I made some of the best ever sweet and sour chicken (that took, oh, I don't know, two hours to make), and promptly burned it at the end. I made gluten free apple pie and cooked it too long -- burned yet again. I made chicken on the grill! and burned them. so I guess I can cook alright until it gets to burning things. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I tried to make an Apple pie. It tasted great but was all watery/runny.....not really servable to others, but still edible :)

  36. I spent hours working on my mom's beef stew and it turned out awful! Ends up she takes a whole day to make this one soup, saying that time was the key. And time I didn't have :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. we tried some dish that involved a lot of shredded carrots. perhaps it was a thai dish? anyway, in my head, it tasted really, really good. and then i took the first bite. it was all i could do to not spit it back out. our three year old DID spit it back out. failed dish for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I tried to make baked macaroni one time (sounds easy right? haha!). well i ended up scalding the milk when i was prepping the cheese and stuff. what a mess. ruined the pot and all!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ah, what have I butchered? I made a beef and broccoli stir fry a few weeks ago. Marinated that beef for multiple hours, as directed. I even took a picture of how it glistened in the bowl... and sent it to those for whom I was preparing. My friends came over and watched my kids and ate it while I was out with another one of my kids. They said,"Thanks for dinner. Mmmm, we love beef!" I warmed up what was leftover and the beef was nasty and leathery. Mmm, good, ole beef and a FAIL!

  40. Now that I live in Colorado, the whole altitude thing messes up EVERYTHING. My roommate and I made cookies the other day for Easter (Yeah, no sugar beginning this morning is going to be rough...) all of our cut outs either bloated and ended up looking like oompa loompa's or dried out and looked like a crispy, half burnt, nasty dog treat.

    Back to the drawing table to figure out how to bake properly up here!!!

  41. The very first meal I ever cooked as a married woman ::

    Logan and I were spending out honeymoon painting and cleaning our new rent house and we'd spent nearly every penny we owned on the supplies. Then we remembered that we needed to eat. Logan had always mentioned how much he loved biscuits and gravy, so this seemed like a cheap, fast option that I could actually do. Everything was going fine until I went to salt and pepper the gravy and the pepper lid came off into the pot. I tried spooning it out, watering it down with more milk, but nothing worked. I just had about a gallon of inedible gravy. Too bad it was our only food and we had to eat it anyway. I kept thinking how cliche it was to botch my first meal as a married woman. We laughed so hard at the supper table that night. :)

  42. Mufongo. No, it's not a cuss word. Its smashed fried plantains. I didn't let the plantains ripen enough and I ended up with a hot greasy mess.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I butchered granola. Was making it so we could stop buying store bought granola and I could make the yummy goodness myself at home. But the dang oatmeal wouldn't get crunchy. So I cranked up the heat, and left the kitchen. Came back 10 minutes later to crispy crittered (blackened) granola crunchies. My Hubs, bless his heart is still eating it!

  44. Homemade spaghetti sauce! Totally burned and not edible at all.

    Just found your blog-thanks for all of your honestly.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've curdled frosting, cake batter and cookie dough. I've burned bacon and pudding (scrubbing that pan for weeks!), and granola. For every success I have, there's usually I time I wasn't paying attention and messed something up. It's great fun :D

    ReplyDelete
  46. When I was first married I found a recipe involving chicken and dijoib mustard.. and I forget what else. I was so excited when I was making it, it was simple and easy. My husband took his first bite he said: "this tastes like feet!" No whenever something is made and it doesn't turn out quite right we call it foot chicken.. oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  47. So many butchers over the years. It all began with muffins in junior high. The recipe called for 3/4 cups sugar, not 3-4 cups. It wasn't giving me the option.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Anything and everything with beef. It is my nemesis. I think I need to try beef jerky, then at least I can say I was trying to make hard, chewy, over salted meat.

    I would love the juicer. Don't get me wrong, we are crazy blessed, but this is the kind of luxury we would not afford on our own without a few months of saving and no surprise home/car repairs, if my son stopped growing and if my husband would designate a difference between work pants and WORK pants.

  49. Paleo Chili....it had a can of pumpkin in it....not sure if that's what did it or not....but oh my goodness it was so nasty...... still sad over the food wasted in that one!

    ReplyDelete
  50. um, yeah!
    sign me up.
    meals butchered?
    oh my...
    lemme think of a good one.
    when i accidentally put my slow cooker on high instead of low and left for the day.
    my poor pork tenderloin... all dried up and burnt.
    sooo gross!
    lesson learned... make sure the dial is set to LOW if you're leaving the house for 12 hours!!
    oy!

  51. My almost-two-year-old daughter does not eat fruits and vegetable very much, so I sneak them in. A lot of times, it's easy and she loves it (like using V8 vegetable juice in pancakes instead of milk). And yesterday...well, the pumpkin/avocado pancakes were a flop :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Since I'm a college student, my meals aren't usually that fancy, but the best recipe mess up I've had was when I attempted to make angel food cake from a box. All you have to do is add water and I added too much and mixed it for too long. My family tried to be nice, but it was practically sweating after it finished baking. It was pretty awful. :)

  53. Phil Staples is my hero. I really want a juicer so I can run down the street in my goal shirt. Preferably in slow motion.

    One time (two months ago) we had a Soup Day at work. Since I had recently cut out sugar and was eating mostly paleo, I decided to enlighten my co-workers with a delicious, clean butternut squash soup. Being the procrastinator I am, I waited until 9 pm the night before to start the process...with a crock-pot recipe I'd never tried before. After getting up a few times during the night to add some ingredients, puree the soup, and dumping a wrongful amount of ginger into it, I took it to work with me...and was utterly humiliated after trying it. There were some sweet souls who said, "Nahhhh, it can't be that bad!" and took a small portion to try. They tried to hide the disgust but their faces were excruciating. It was horrible. One kind old soul ended up giving me some cooking advice, at which time I unplugged my crock-pot and hid it behind the paper towel roll. No more soup days for me.

  54. i am a senior in college and just discovered a love for cooking about 2 years ago! my meals throughout the school year are provided by the cafeteria, but when i'm home or want to make something, i like to try new recipes. recently, i was trying one of my favorite recipes, spinach and black bean brownies (found from the nato's blog!). i had been raving to all my friends about how wonderful they were! we didn't have a small enough pan, so me and a friend tried to put foil and whatever we had to make the pan custom-size. bad idea. don't try it at home! brownie batter leaked all into the 'closed off' section and the brownies ended up not cooking thoroughly enough. it was like liquid spinach and black beans....that was warm....ew. i still need to redeem myself before graduation!! LOL.

  55. I cannot make hummus. I've tried numerous times and it just never comes out right. :(

  56. Crockpot Chicken Parmesan....it smelled SO DELICIOUS while it was cooking. It tasted AWFUL. Actually, it tasted like burned mush. So disappointing.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The blender I'm using for smoothies just isn't cutting it. Would so love this!!!! When don't I mess up a meal? But I try...My most recent was a recipe I saw on Pinterest. I decided to try and make homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. The recipe said it was the "easiest" recipe out there. Well maybe for some :) Anyway my vegetables were not cooked through and my egg noodles were all mushy. I couldn't bring myself to throw it though. So I freezed portions and have been the only one eating it :(

    ReplyDelete
  58. I just ordered a juicer last night, but I'd be happy to return it if I win this, much nicer, juicer! I make a carrot, sweet potato soup but last time changed the stock and it was quite gross, when usually it's my kids favorite. :(

    ReplyDelete
  59. Haha well I hate eggs... and mayonaise. So deviled eggs (how could they be good with a name so evil right?) are one of my least favorite creations and the name doesn't help at all. Anyway, everyone else in my family loves them, so I whipped up a batch made with love for them to enjoy. We ate our dinner when some one said "hey, where's the deviled eggs?" We had forgotten all about them and everyone was too stuffed to eat more than 3 of them. Now every time I open the fridge the devilish things are staring right at me... and I don't like it one bit.

    p.s This juicer is amazing! My in-laws own this one but in black so I have had the pleasure to use it on occasion. It rocks! I have my fingers crossed :)

  62. Yes to this juicer. I love kitchen gadgets that have more than one function! I think my very worst cooking disaster was when I was a kid and I made my mom a birthday cake. The recipe called for three teaspoons of baking soda but I only had a tablespoon. So I logically put three tablespoons of baking soda in. The cake was awful. And hilarious.

  63. I tried to make meatloaf in the crockpot when I was first married. I was sure i had seen a recipe for this somewhere, but when i couldnt find it I forged ahead making a meatloaf and leaving it in the crockpot all day. When we got home the congeled fat was all soaked into the top of the meat and even after scrapping it off it tasted horrible and we threw it out.

  64. Two years ago I attempted to make my husband an amazing, homemade dinner for Valentine's Day. No mind that fact that we had a colic-y, demanding 2 month old or that I'm just basically not a great cook. OH NO MATTER! Pioneer Woman said this chickenfriedporkchophomecookedwhateverIcan'tevenremember was easy as pie, so I tried it. Major fail. Large piece of animal still basically alive on our plates as we listened to the baby cry 2.3 seconds after laying her down. Cue the romance, baby.

    Great giveaway!! Your series is convicting me on the sugar front, yet I'm still hunched over my chai tea like it's my last. Baby steps.

  69. I lived at a ski resort in Colorado for a year after college and basically everything I tried to bake didnt turn out as planned. Cooking at altitude is not an easy task- especially if you are 22 and too lazy to do it right. Thankfully I worked at a restaurant and the boys that worked the kitchen would eat anything. Even my terrible baked goods ;)

  72. Oh I would love to have a juicer! My first step towards making healthier decisions was to cut out seasoning packets a couple of years ago. Well my first attempt at guacamole sans the season packet was disgusting! Way too salty. Luckily the chickens will eat most anything and so I did't feel like I completely wasted it!

  78. I can has juicer?! Well i'm an amazing cook and everything i cook is amazing... ish. But the funniest recipe blunder fail was executed by my husband. He got a fried fish recipe from paula dean and thought he could sub the batter with pancake mix. His own take on chicken and waffles. But what ha happen was he had the stove on too hot and burnt the outside and left the fish raw. Soo we went to Backyard Burger for dinner instead. Mad love to my Husband though. Mad love.

  79. i would love a juicer! i have a hard time eating breakfast in the morning (any thought of food before 11AM makes me feel sick!) and i've found that juice is about the only think i can manage. i'd love to be able to make my own! anyhow - i can't cook to save my life! i literally mess up anything! my biggest food fail involved easy mac. you know, you pop it in the microwave for a few minutes then BAM! you are supposed to have your meal...well, somehow when i tried to make my easy mac, i caught the microwave on fire! i'm still not sure what i did but realizing that there were flames coming out of the door of it has traumatized me for life...i recently tried to make easy mac again and i guess i overestimated the milk because it turned into soup. needless to say, my fiance is the one who does all the cooking...i just watch! ;P

  80. Blooper Recipe:
    The easiest chocolate cookies on the back of the chocolate chips bag. (sorry this is a no sugar series but it was the first recipe I thought of). Should be easy. It always worked before at my parents' house growing up in good ol' Frederick, Colorado (land of the high altitude). High altitude never occurred to me because I never seemed to have to worry about it. (maybe it's because I was a little girl growing up who was not often in the kitchen baking?) Well, I got married and moved to Lakewood, Colorado (elevation: 5,480 ft. Only 500 ft difference in elevation from Frederick). Long story short, my chocolate cookies turned to a single large, chewy sugary mess. No cookies.

    My new husband walked into the kitchen wondering what the yummy smell was and I burst into tears. That's when he pointed out the high altitude directions (in tiny fine print) at the bottom of the recipe. Face Palm.

  85. Once when I was making coconut cream pie, I doubled the recipe without putting it in a bigger pan. So... there was bubbling, boiling goo everywhere!

  86. We had a "pantry" drive at our rehearsal dinner before we got married where we obtained lots of great stuff to stock up our pantry along with some questionable items. A few weeks after we got married I woke up for church in a panic because there was a potluck that day. I scrambled to the kitchen which was fairly empty and was relieved to find this brownie package mix someone had given us. It wasn't boxed brownies...no...less work than that. I greased my pan and everything and breathed a sigh of relief as I dropped them off at the church kitchen on the way into the sanctuary. Mid sermon this group of ladies comes to FIND ME in the sanctuary to break it to me that my precious brownies were not coming off the pan. They were so fake they literally were inedible. These ladies were dramatic and certain they were going to hurt my feelings....I tried to explain that I didn't care at all and was not embarrassed, but they still treated me like the new wife who butchered brownies and apparently couldn't cook! :) I still laugh about their reaction!

  88. Just a few nights ago, I made what SHOULD have been a very simple chicken pasta thing. With white wine too...how could I fail?
    But fail I did, and I ordered Italian & drank the rest of that white wine. Boom. Win win.

  89. A couple months ago, I tried to make a broccoli rice casserole. Long story short: recipe called for instant rice, I used regular rice. It tasted like we were eating pea gravel. My husband tried to choke it down, sweet thing. And then made a run to DQ. Fail. I need this!

  90. A few nights ago I attempted Fettuccine Alfredo. I over cooked the pasta, and burnt the chicken... Epic FAIL! It was pretty terrible and ended up in the trash.

  91. Unfortunately my food disaster was as recent as YESTERDAY. My familia was invited to a potential employer's home for dinner (and a church leader was also there for dinner) and I offered to bring the dessert. I found a highly rated cake and frosting recipe on allrecipes and made it up. I tasted a little bite of the cake before I slathered it in frosting and the cake was sooo good. Wish I'd tasted the frosting. I was in such a hurry by the time I got to frosting the cake that I just dumped a load of frosting on top and made it look all pretty. At the party when I finally got my piece last I almost gagged on it. The frosting was nasty!! How do you mess up frosting?! It totally ruined the cake. And my pride. Awesome squared.

  92. I tried making a pineapple upside down cake in my new cast iron skillet. I was so excited and decided to kick it up a notch by using fresh pineapple instead of canned. It turned out horrible. Inedible. Seemed like it would be so easy to make, too!

  94. A few months back a couple of friends had a baby. Trying to be a good neighbor I made a pumpkin & smoked gouda bisque (which I have made countless times). I must have mistaken teaspoon for tablespoon of salt. I totally oversalted the soup...BAD! I didn't even want to take it, but I didn't want to show up empty handed. They were gracious and ate it anyway, or at least they said they did...liars.

  95. This hardly seems to count, but honestly I can't think of a meal that I've made that didn't work out right. I just don't cook much since Im still living at home... and when I do, I don't feel like it's usually as great as my mom could make it.

  96. i tried making my grandma's "famous" fluffy dinner rolls for easter dinner but substituted real butter for the oleo, and white whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour. not exactly what I remember, kinda more like hockey pucks but bearable. I do feel a lot better about eating 4 of them of the course of 2 days.

  97. Oooooo a juicer!! What a great giveaway!

    I seem to mess up chicken every time I make it. I'm scared of undercooked meat so I always end up cooking it until it's super tough. Totally fowl. (HAD TO.)

  98. there is a recipe on pinterest called "angel chicken" or something like that that all of my friends swear by. when i made it, instead of being chicken with a nice thick sauce, it was basically chicken soup. i have no idea what went wrong. it was tasty - but i didn't want soup!

  99. So those bean brownies you love? Yeah I had that recipe but not the instructions about BLENDING the beans before adding the brownie mix, and honey if you don't blend, then you taste the beans. My sister is still scarred from that.

  101. I used to be the go-to deviled egg maker of the family for all of our family functions...until I mistook a teaspoon of salt for a tablespoon of salt. Everyone was very kind in telling me they were yummy because they were so salty, but no. they're all liars, they were gross and wayyyy toooo salty. Since then I haven't been asked to make deviled eggs...I get it okay! There's no grace for salty deviled eggs in my family apparently.

  102. Speaking of sugar...I'm not too great with it. I once made muffins and added powdered sugar instead of flour. They were both in cute little containers and look alike to me. So, who knew that sugar turns liquid in the oven and boils all over and catches on fire and fills the entire place with smoke so that the neighbors call the fire department. Well, I do...now

  104. I once tried to make some lasagna soup (pinterest find). I didn't have Italian sausage so I decided to simply add spices to ground beef and call it good. I overestimated how much spices/herbs to add but I still added the amounts for cooking the broth. Needless to say, it was so spicy/salty/peppery that I had to add extra water and cheese to even eat it. It was tasty, but the overabundance of red pepper flakes sure did open up my sinuses! Lesson learned, taste your food as you cook it!!

  109. I made a pecan pie for my husband a few weeks ago. The inside was RUNNY, but he said it still tasted good. :) This was a true act of selflessness, because I do not like pecan pie. And this was before I surrendered sugar, so the pecan pie took the place of a potentially yummy treat for me! BUT, other than eating a few of my kids' gummy vitamins as a "treat" (haha) I've done really well for the past week! Yay! :)

  111. gluten free bread made with almond flour. and vinegar. ewww. it was nasty and i'm sorry, just does NOT compare to real bread. I am also dealing with this no sugar issue and think i'm going to have to repent an awful lot until I "get" it. Last night I ate 2 mini cupcakes just because I was in a grumpy mood.

    Baking failure since I know you like to bake Jami:

    I recently was asked to help my sister decorate and write on a homemade cookie cake for a coworker's birthday. I thought 'buttercream icing, no big deal!' Well, I DO keep butter in the house, but not regular milk these days. I thought I would just sub some coconut milk in it's place. Lesson learned: it is not the same! The icing kept separating, and I kept whipping it up. After piping it on the cake and watching it slowly separate and melt all over the cookie, I realized that it was NOT going to stay together. Happy melty/separating dyed icing happy birthday person I don't know! sorry about that sister.

  121. Unfortunately there are many I could choose from, however most recently I have messed up what was supposed to be so delicious .... homemade cinnamon rolls using alternative sweetners and flours. Bummer.. big time bummer. Saddest part was we were all looking forward to them so much that we ate them anyhow. Desperate for some sweets.

  122. What an awesome giveaway! I not to long ago messed up a recipe, I can't even remember the name, some sort of baked chicken. It was so bad I couldn't eat it! I think my husband may have suffered through half a piece. :)
    We started today on the no sugar venture to see how it helps us feel better and change. I have been so inspired by Jami's posts on here and Instagram that I finally said we can do this and we bit the bullet. :) A juicer would be awesome to win! Some person is going to be super lucky.

  123. Curry Chicken! I can't ever get the chicken to be anything but dry and the curry to taste like curry. It's a mash of cardboard and felafel batter paste flavor in our mouths. I can honestly say we've tossed our dinner and ordered Thai food delivery before due to the sucky-ness of this meal. I just can't get it right!

  125. It's probably cheating to say every single one, right? Erm. Pinterest tricked me into making some Oreo "brownies" that contained 1pkg Oreos, 1pkg marshmallows, and a whole stick of butter. It should have been HAMAZING, right? It tasted like oreo jerky. Which is not delicious.

  126. plain old mashed potatoes. it was my FIRST TIME hosting college students at my house for dinner. I tried to make it "healthy" and used fat free cream cheese and water. and i didn't have a potato ricer. it was awkward when they tried to eat around the clumps. they complemented me on the store bought peppermint ice cream for dessert!! i had my mother in law buy me a ricer for Christmas!

  127. I have been inspired by your blog to start eating with less sugar and get into this whole "green" movement. So I decided to make a green smoothie. It seemed like an easy enough task. Except that instead of turning out green it somehow turned out looking kind of like a turd smoothie. Which is unappetizing enough on its own without adding the chunks of spinach in it because I don't have a juicer (hint hint). Needless to say, try as I might, I could not finish it and had to pour it down the disposal.

  134. I made a turkey and wild rice soup once with my Dad using leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. We must have added 10X the rice to that stuff. We had to bring out two more pots and had that soup for days and days. It was like it was going to fill our house and crawl out the windows

  135. I had a pot of beef burgundy started that was ready to go into the oven, so I opened the preheated oven to find a melted plastic tea cup from my son's kitchen set. I then freaked out and grabbed some tongs to get it out, shut off the oven during my freak out, and then put my pot of beef burgundy in the oven. A couple of hours later, I checked on my beef burgundy and realized I had shut the oven off and didn't turn it back on. Fun times.

  137. i love to try new meals, so i was super happy to find a recipe for orange chicken in the crock pot. cook all day while i do errands? yes, please. not quite. i may have read the recipe wrong, or simply overcooked it-- it was absolutely inedible. horrendous! i had to let my crock soak for two days to remove all of the blackened "orange chicken" that had burned in it.

  138. i tried to make my own eggplant parmesan once. it was an emeril lagasse recipe so i thought it would be fab, as all his recipes are! it was not edible. my sweet husband (we were newly-weds at the time) tried to eat it anyway, until i finally took his plate away and tossed it. ugh. i still have no idea what i did wrong. but it sacred me from every trying it again and i have now resorted to only grilling eggplant.

  139. (First did this on my phone and it doesn't seem to have worked so trying again...:))
    THIS morning: I burned the oatmeal, forgot about my tea that was steeping FOREVER, and burned my toast, which then in my effort to save it by scraping said burnt bits off, covered my entire sink area and counter with burnt crumbs. Thankfully, the day has gotten better! :)

    This giveaway feels providential, even if I don't win! I just commented this morning on "life_edited"'s Instagram about wanting to try a juicing fast for a while, but not having the money to buy a juicer, and then saw this post from you this afternoon. Providential, indeed.

    Thanks for doing this and for sharing your heart and life with us! xxx

  140. not a good cook so let's just start by saying that. And I have to use glasses and if I don't things can go horribly wrong. I was having a Halloween party and made these delicious marshmallow type bars, but they were soooooo thick. It took peanut butter. Smooth. 8 Tablespoons. Well, yes . this is where my math went south. Wish that rhymed. I used 8 cups of smooth peanut butter. And it made a bit of a difference. They were like bricks. Peanut Butter bricks. Really. Heavy. Peanut butter bricks.

  141. wow, what a nice juicer! I can usually do pretty well on our grill, but there was a time when my mojo for the grill was gone. During one week I managed to catch 2 meals on fire...hamburgers one night, chicken on another. That obviously meant our dinner plans were completely turned upside down. We probably had cereal for dinner.

  148. For the first few years of marriage and parenthood, I basically ruined every birthday cake/dessert I tried to make. It became a running joke. Burnt icing, cakes that fell out of the pans in pieces, numerous tries on the actual party days, even cakes that read things like "Happy Birthd" because I forgot to get more colored decorating icing and ran out of what I had. Ridiculous!

    We've been on our real food journey for almost 4 years now, and haven't made it to juicing because THE PRICE OF THOSE THINGS! Goodness. :) Would love to win this!

I made a casserole dish one night that was straight off of the trusty internet called "Chicken and Biscuits". You know, the one with biscuits on top. This recipe called for 2 cups of mayo. It might as well have been called "Mayo and Biscuits". Disgust. But, being that we were newlyweds, my hubby polished off his plate! I had no idea until weeks later that he hated mayo and hated the dish! We reminisce often about my Mayo Casserole and how he would never eat it if I made it today! ps I would never make it anyway because we now eat clean food. ;)

As for a recipe that just didn't work out, there are so many I can't choose. One particular one comes to mind- it was a kiwi sangria- oh, wait, that wasn't ME that messed that up, it was someone else. I did however royally mess up a flourless brownie from scratch. I didn't have all of the ingredients but I tried to make them anyway. I often do that. Sometimes it turnes out okay...this time it did not. Maybe I will try to make my OWN kiwi sangria instead and have better results.

Well it came out like a doughy corn pudding instead of corn bread 0_o. My husband being the great guy he is ate it anyway. It had great flavor just a horrible consistency. I can finally say after 4 years of trying have gotten it to an edible state...lol. Its actually really good and easy now.

  167. Your series on giving up sugar has been awesome for me. I am a sugar addict myself, and have also recently been trying to cook more fresh and from-scratch meals for my family (less processed foods). A recent kidney problem prompted all this! Anyway, I LOVE sugar and it's difficult. So thanks for sharing your story and being an encouragement.
    So the first time I ever tried to make my own salsa (several years ago), I didn't have a recipe and tried to wing it. Also couldn't find fresh cilantro and this KS girl thought the dried up seed kind would work fine. Ah hem. Yeah that did NOT work. Thankfully I have since learned how to make fresh salsa with fresh cilantro, and it is edible.
