There's the cheater's way of fixing corn on the cob, too. Microwave the corn, with the shuck on it, for 90 seconds on high. Perfectly cooked corn, and the shuck and silks just fall off. Easiest way ever to cook corn on the cob!
There are so many different cooking techniques, you couldn't list them all in an article, but I do think some of the more obvious ones were left off, like boiling, steaming, braising, etc. I would certainly have thought those techniques merited a mention, since they're simple and commonly done. I use braising a lot because it's great for cooking tougher cuts of meat so they turn out very tender and moist.
