    More than 3 steps.
    Too much work! I will make an exception for baking though. Sweets are so much better than dinner!

    Wine! Dh and I don't drink wine very often at home (and the kind in recipes is rarely the kind i like to drink anyway) and there's no way I'm buying a whole bottle just to add 100ml to a sauce or risotto, and then throw away the rest!

    Eggs, due to my allergy. Occasionally I can work around it.

    Recipes that have numerous fresh herbs also turn me off, because they are dang expensive to buy (though I have started growing some of my own).

    Recipes that insist on the use of a food processor also turn me off. I don't have one anymore. I could probably use my stick blender with chopping attachment but...meh. I'd rather not.

    I wonder too. I know I'm not allergic as I can eat it in cakes etc, but anything eggy (fritata, quiche, baked custard) or pure egg make me involuntarily gag. I can't even be in the kitchen when DH is scrambling eggs.

    Or cans of soup. I bought a new slow cooker book and essentially it was '50 ways to cook meat in a can of soup'.

    I heard the best thing to do with this situation is freeze the left over wine to use next time you are using that recipe.
