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
    Static
    You might ridicule me for this, but it wasn't easy the first time. The very first one tasted like...soap.
