Is Derick Dillard as Bad of a Cook as Wife Jill Duggar? This Instagram Post Makes Fans Think So
TLC viewers originally knew the Duggars as the oddball family with 19 children, but over the years, we’ve gotten to know the older Duggar kids quite well. From fan favorites, like Jessa and Jana, to the ones who started it all, Jim Bob and Michelle, there’s always something being discussed in Duggar world. And one of the topics that continually comes up is Jill Duggar’s controversial cooking.
There’s no doubt the Duggar family members aren’t known for their cooking skills, but Jill still shares her favorite household recipes on her blog. And fans are starting to think her husband, Derick Dillard, is equally as bad in the kitchen from this single Instagram post. Here’s why.
Jill Duggar has been slammed for her cooking in the past
With a family of 19 kids, Michelle Duggar used to share her secrets for making sure everyone got fed on a budget. This often meant their meals were full of cheap boxed and canned ingredients instead of fresh, and the children helped as much as they possibly could to get food on the table in a timely manner. While Jill may still love her family’s recipes, fans continue to slam them, as they’re often unhealthy and look seriously unappetizing.
OK! Magazine notes fans have taken to Instagram to express how much they wish Jill would give up her time in the kitchen. On a post for Easy Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken & Tortillas, one fan commented, “Jill, I love you but these processed ‘quick, easy, inexpensive’ recipes are antiquated and unhealthy. You can use real food with the same results. Please!” And her Pops’ BBQ Tuna Fish is another recipe fans love to hate. “That’s straight Prison Food!” one other Instagram follower commented.
Derick seems to love Jill’s recipes however
While fans may not be making Jill’s recipes anytime soon, it seems she does have one fan who’s always willing to indulge in her cooking — and that’s her husband, Derick. Derick’s known for making a splash on social media himself, and he has quite the following on Instagram. He’ll frequently post photos of himself enjoying some of Jill’s cuisine — though, of course, this also comes with backlash. Even when Derick is trying to be supportive of his wife’s cooking skills, fans can’t get past all of the canned and cream-based products she’s always adding in to dishes that may otherwise have a shot at being healthy.
On one recent post, Derick shared a new “Christmas tradition” for the Dillard family — and that’s Jill’s homemade sushi. Unfortunately, while this recipe looked fresh and healthy, it seemed many fans didn’t believe the photo that Derick added was actually his own. “That picture is stolen from another site. Show what was really made,” said one follower. And fans took a lot of issue with this steak and eggs meal he posted one weekend. “Eggs look so overdone,” added another follower.
This Instagram photo shows Derick bringing Jill an ideal Duggar breakfast
Derick hasn’t posted any culinary masterpieces on his own Instagram, so fans aren’t totally sure what he’s capable of in the kitchen. Judging from how much he loves Jill’s cooking, we do have some idea that their palates are similar. And this one Instagram post that Jill added shows what he’s whipping up for breakfast, too. We see Derick with a plate of chopped fruit as well as a bowl of fruity, sugary cereal. There was clearly no cooking required, and it seems like this sort of high-carb meal may occur regularly in the Dillard household.
Clearly Jill doesn’t mind this morning treat, however — even if it shows fans that perhaps he isn’t the best cook. “My sweet hubby @derickdillard brought me breakfast in bed. He’s the ‘bestest!'” she captioned the post. While others may hope that their own significant others would make more of a cooking effort, it seems this meal suits the Duggars just fine.
