Chicken soup. I like chicken soup and I cook it a lot. But, no matter what you do, the drums and thighs (the best parts) have this nasty looking, nasty tasting chicken blood extravasated into the meat. I've tried "organic" (somewhat better, usually) and boneless (yuck - mystery meat) chicken parts and soaking this way & that way. Nothing consistently works. You just cross your fingers.

But I like chicken soup so I often make it. This bloody legs & thighs stuff has emerged big time in the last 15 or 20 years. The conveyer belts at the slaughter houses need to be slowed down. Charge me another buck a pound if you have to, call it "organic' if you want, but thoroughly bleed these birds for pete sakes. All it takes is gravity and just a little more time.

And, oh...potato pancakes. My favorite thing! (I'll admit...I eat them faster than I can cook them!)

But grating those taters to a pulp is such a job! Your fingers wind up a scraped up bloody mess.

But when I get a potato pancake Jones, I'll tolerate it! No other way around it.

You dislike doing that?

Fried foods and anything that takes long preparation time.

dried beans. Such a process. Soak them for 12-24 hours, rinse, simmer in pot of water for 1-2 hours, drain, store. If I had the money for a pressure cooker or instant pot it would probably help, but sometimes I give in and use canned or just eat lentils which cook much more quickly. Beans are a staple for me.

Another is homemade bread. I love it so much more than store bought, but I make it by hand and it is a lengthy process. I don't have a lot of machines in my house lol.

Did you try making NYT “ simple crusty bread” recipe? It is so easy and fast. One does need a Dutch oven- lodge is the least expensive- the best bread ever!
Dutch oven is good to have for other simple easy meals. You even can make beans in that- low and slow!

Instant pot is not that expensive now- at Walmart 3qt is $49. Other manufacturers could be less- there are now plenty of them. One still needs to soak beans though- due to anti-nutrients.

Fish. I can never seem to get it right. I love fish, but now I only buy the breaded fillets becasue they are easy to cook. Fresh or non battered fish is hard to cook well.

I'll never cook tripe again. The smell is chemical warfare. The kid wants menudo, he will have to go to a Mexican restaurant.


I don't like making green salads. All the washing, peeling, and chopping and making the salad dressing every 2-3 days. But I do it because we all like to eat them.
