    Cleaning? I kid (sort of).
    Cake decorating! My mother was amazing at it and my oldest son always wants elaborate birthday cakes at which I completely fail.

    Making home made bread. My grandmother used to bake bread and I have such fond memories of hot bread out of the oven.

    Thanks for the heads up on the BlogHer contest. I will pop over there now.

    Funny how many folks have the same concerns. Knife skills seems to be everyone’s #1. And lots of general “baking” issues. Guess we’re all in the same boat!

    I have a phobia about making dough. I want to be able to bake bread and pie crust and pastries.
