Recipes you can't screw up
Do you have a recipe you can't screw up? Not necessarily something easy like toast with butter or boiled water, but just something that you've done so much that you just don't mess it up. For me it's grilled chicken. I have it down to a science, I know how much charcoal to use, the marinade, and cooking time. It comes out flavorful, juicy, and perfectly done every time. Fortunately, its one of my wife's favorite meals so I have a foolproof way of getting lucky almost any day! ;-) Unforetunately there are many things I can screw up, although I almost never screw it up so bad that I have to throw it away and start over anymore. (Knock on wood). What's your no-miss recipe?
