Simple things you can't get right

sweetpotater | Dec 1, 2011 10:24 AM

My travails with my current loaf of no-knead bread got me thinking about should-be-easy foods I just cannot cook well. I have mastered wedding cake, Momofuku ramen, cassoulet—any number of complicated dishes. But for the life of me I can't get a boiled egg right (yes, I have tried every method you are about to recommend; I now rely on a $20 infallible egg cooker), and my pancakes are never particularly good either. I used to also burn grilled cheese on a regular basis, but I have improved at least on that front.

What are your embarrassing weak spots?
