Recipe Monday Pinterest Flop

I thought I was going to have a great crock pot chicken recipe to share with you today. But the recipe did not turn out, like I pictured or how it was pictured on Pinterest. I guess my recipe was one of those Pinterest flops. Here is what the picture looked like on Pinterest.

Looks yummy right? Looking at that picture makes my mouth water.

The ingredients that was used to make this gorgeous picture was
1 pack chicken breast tenderloins,1 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup light soy sauce. Placed in the crock pot for 6 to 8 hours. I added chunks of pineapple too.

Here's what everything looked like in the crock pot at the beginning.

After 7 hrs of cooking, here's the finished result.

This looks totally different than what was pictured. The meal was not the best. You get the hint real fast, when the hubby does not go back for seconds and your child says this is nasty through the whole meal.

Have you had a Pinterest flop? I would love to hear about it. Please leave comments about your Pinterest flop or leave comments on the Nifty Thrifty Family Facebook page ( I will pick several of the top flops and post them Saturday Dec 8, 2012.
Can't wait to hear about your Pinterest flops.


  1. I luckily have never had a flop. Most of the recipes on my blog began from a pinterest pin. They all are true to recipe.

  2. I tried that recipe too and didn't love it (and it looked nothing like the originally picture either). My biggest flop was my apple fritters

  3. I admire your bravery to try something different. It did not turn out looking too bad but I am sure it could get better with constant practice :)
    I am following you now and would love for you to follow along.
