What is your biggest frustration with cooking?

Hi,
I've been cooking for several years now, and am just curious: what is YOUR biggest frustration with cooking?

Thanks,
Yongho

Welcome to DC.
I've been cooking so many years that nearly all of my early frustrations have been eliminated, with the exception of baking. I won't even try making bread. For one thing it doesn't interest me, and since I can buy good bread I don't need to. I bake very few sweets and it must be a simple recipe that's hard to screw up. Baking just frustrates me in general. On the other hand, it's easy to avoid, and on the plus side I don't need the useless carbs/calories. I generally find "cooking" a pleasure, but can get frustrated with distractions, like hubby in the kitchen.

Haven't mastered the art of carmelizing onions! ;)

Currently my biggest frustration is wanting more counter space...

but when I arrive in New Albany IN and my new house, that will be eliminated. :)

Hi Yongho. Welcome to DC. I too have no frustration with cooking. I don't do much baking because hubby is diabetic. You will find that those of us that have been cooking 30 years or more. Let very little bother us ,

I gave up on baking after having only a 50% success rate on cookies. I just don't have the precision or patience. A bag of cookies can be $1 or $2 and last me a week or two when I have the urge, plus, no mess to clean up.

Space. My kitchen fairly small and cramped. I also find myself cutting corners to use less dishes since we don't have an electric dishwasher, which sometimes causes problems. If I cook big, I have to clean big. It's difficult to clean as I go as I'm usually battling a toddler in the process.

Thanks Kayelle!
I'm looking for ways to help people who already cook for themselves.
I've taught my friends how to cook and they love it so far!
I'm just curious about what kinds of cooking/food preparation troubles other people who cook very often have, so I can help them if needed.

So many recipes, so few meals in a day
