I'm not much of a baker, but one year decided to make an Easter braided bread. The recipe was from one of The Frugal Gourmet cookbooks, which I had (and still do) have good luck with, generally. Now, I'm repeating, I don't really bake. I got to some point in the recipe and it said, "now add the xxxxxx." I went back and re-read the ingredients list. My husband and I were working together, and we went back and forth and back and forth, and could not find that ingredient listed. When you're a beginner, baking is more science than art. We'd already gotten to that point, and called everyone we knew who might have baked that bread, and it turned out OK, but we never tried that one again!

After all the years of cooking, I get tired of coming up with menus and sometimes I just don't want to cook. But I don't want to eat out so much either. I suppose that is a good reason to have a freezer full of dishes that I make when I do have the urge to cook.

For me it is food snobbery.

It drives me mad when someone says they enjoy something and someone feels the need to say how trashy it is, declare "yuck" or make faces to show disgust because it isn't the "finest of french food" or using expensive ingredients.

Oh, and I don't do cakes well.

I am 100% in agreement with you on this.

Currently my biggest frustration is wanting more counter space...
The lack of counterspace (and storage space) at the farm drives me crazy...as does the lack of a dishwasher. This kitchen was NOT designed by someone who liked to cook from scratch.

This is me too, so to help compensate I use more pre-made things like dressing, powders and sauces. Yes, sad but true. However you do become a little more creative in finding multiple uses for everyday items that may appear to be one dimensional.
