I’ve had numerous disasters in the kitchen, but one stands the test of time as the funniest kitchen horror story of my “career.” It was Easter time, and I found a fun recipe in the paper for chocolate-coated cream eggs. I had no problem with the filling, but the chocolate coating just was not sticking. It kept sliding off. I eventually discovered that if I let the chocolate cool, I could pack it on by hand, rather like making a snowball. The finished eggs were attractive, with a dark gloss. After dinner, I proudly presented my special dessert. At the first bite, we discovered the problem. There was a blur in the newsprint, and rather than the intended half block of paraffin in the coating, I used half of a box. No wonder the coating wouldn’t stick! Thirty-five years later, the family still refers to this as “Lisa’s Chocolate Crayon Dessert!”
