I cannot cook pancakes

On a skillet. DH got me a griddle a few years ago and I use it quite a bit for many things, including pancakes. But I have become a part time weekend caretaker for my grandma and she doesn't have a griddle. She no longer can cook (she tries to get away with it, but has dementia and other health problems, so it isn't safe). So I make all the meals. The last couple weekends I made pancakes, it was a disaster! Today I went a different route and baked them. Good decision....they were delicious and she loved them. Coming from someone who spent a majority of her life in the kitchen taking care of others, that's quite a compliment. :) So, what can YOU not make well? Is there a dish that you avoid making?

I used to suck at spaghetti of all things. It just tasted gross. The noodles were always wrong. And I couldn't make bratwurst. I always hated them because they were slimy and grey and didn't taste good. Turns out you aren't actually supposed to boil them. I was always taught to do that, lol.

For pancakes I found a fool proof recipe that is fantastic. They turn out fluffy and delicious every time!

It's on all recipes.com and called 'fluffy pancake recipe'. It's got over 7000 excellent reviews.

pork chops.

And for some reason everytime my mother in law uses my oven it rebels on her at least once. It refuses to make brownies for her but mine always come out perfect.

Haha! I cannot cook pancakes on a griddle. I can use a cast-iron skillet very readily though. lol

I am not good at pancakes at all! My dd still likes them. I also have trouble with an over easy egg. I most always break the yoke.
