The better I become at it, the faster it disappears

I'm a pretty good cook but a shockingly bad baker. I think I have hot hands!

I use to get angry enough to run in front of a bus when M-i-l came to visit. First off she would ask what I was going to make???? Then when I got things going she would take a spoon or fork and start tasting using the same fork or spoon YUK then she would change the settings often times burning the food. I loved her but she drove me batty. So I prefer ya stay out of my kitchen unless ya keep mouths closed and sit on your hands.

Just sitting here thinking about it, I don't really find anything frustrating about cooking. In fact, coming home and making a meal is probably the most relaxing and satisfying part of my day.

If I have come up with something, I would say that not always being able to find the proper ingredients can be a little frustrating. I like to experiment with exotic ethnic cuisines (exotic to me anyway) and not everything is readily available at the local Safeway or Albertsons - especially spices, many of which I have to order online.

Not enough counter space and not enough room for someone else to work in the kitchen at the same time.

At the moment: not being able to make "the claw" because of an injury to my left index finger, so I am only cutting things that are easily and safely cut with a paring knife.

You must not have ever tasted chocolate chip cookies made according to the original recipe, so hot out of the oven that they burn your tongue, so limp that you cannot pick them up, and so chocolatey that licking your fingers is a given.

Sir Loin, you read my mind. If I have any frustration in the kitchen, it is that there are so many delicious dishes I would like to make, but there is neither enough time to make them all, nor to eat them all!

My biggest frustration is tools that don't do their intended job. I've learned to pay whatever it takes to get one that does the best job. That is not always the most expensive.
