Here's a list of food/drinks that seemed pretty easy to cook/make to me until I tried my hand at 'em. (Maybe I should've asked my girlfriend for help)
  1. Cheese Fondue
    I don't know, does EVERYBODY (upon eating a cheese fondue for the first time) have a clear understanding about the fact that it is NOT just simple molten cheese?
  2. Lemon Iced Tea
    I did NOT expect any amount of 'heating' involved here.
  3. Pancakes
    You might ridicule me for this, but it wasn't easy the first time. The very first one tasted like...soap.
