I save all things I hate to cook for eating out and enjoy them all the more being served.

Same here, in a perfect world I would eat fish frequently but as it is I do eat it out as a treat on occasion.

Also agree about salads but when I do make them I eat them for all my lunch and dinners, also sometimes for breakfast.

Anything that requires standing over it. I can do a lot of prep work and I don't mind so much, but standing over a hot stove, stirring and tending, is not my cup of tea.

If beans are important to you, you need a pressure cooker. Here is an inexpensive model on Amazon.

Or, perhaps a family member has one they donít want. Be resourceful. Get the thing you need!

Liver all types or any offal.

not a fan of cooking fish except shrimp and crab. I'd rather go out to eat and have it. It stinks up the whole house and it bothers me.

I hate having to work with raw meat, like shaping hamburger patties, meatloaf, chicken (like crab) cakes. It's cold and greasy, and... it's raw meat. (No offense, provider animal.)

I hate grating cheese. Last night I grated TWO POUNDS of cheese.

I don't like to chop up heads of broccoli or cauliflower because of all the crumbs I have to clean off the cutting board.

Would wearing gloves help?

I also eat a lot of beans-----great northern and pinto. But I don't need to soak them. I put them on a hotplate in a big pot, that takes 1 hour to heat to boiling temperature and then simmer them for 105 minutes and they're thoroughly cooked. I put the pot in a sink with cold water and stir them for 30 minutes to cool them. Then I toss in two trays of ice cubes, which bring them to the right level of juiciness, as well as cool them some more. Then I put them in the freezer compartment for 90 minutes and when I put them in the main refrigerator, they don't heat everything else inside. They keep better, when they're cooled rapidly.

The part that really annoys me, is having to spend so much time picking the culls out of the white beans. The pinto beans don't seem to have very many of them. Split green peas never seem to have any culls.

Yep. I don't do complicated recipes. Thus, I don't make pizza anymore.
