There are some dishes that I'm absolutely terrified of making at home. They're scary because I'm afraid of failing. Dough (pizza, bread, pie, etc.) has always been very intimidating to me. However, I'm taking baby steps, like mastering pie dough, to overcome this fear. One recipe that I'm totally intimidated by, and not ready to face, is Boston cream pie. I made it years ago and it was a total disaster. The sponge cake was dry and crunchy, the custard didn't set, and the chocolate glaze didn't harden. Since then, I've avoided making Boston cream pie at all costs. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is frightened by certain recipes, so tell me, what dishes intimidate you?
