--Another Story--

As I was reading the egg and artichoke stories in your archive, I was reminded of my first dinner party as a newlywed. My husband and I were both working so I had planned ahead and mixed up all the ingredients for a fondue dinner. It was really the rage in the early 1970s when we were married. I raced home right after work because I had less than an hour before dinner guests were to arrive. I thought I would make a quick-set jello salad and I was moving the strawberry Jell-O concoction from the counter to the refrigerator when I dropped the dish. Jell-O went everywhere, over and under everything. I almost had the slimy mess cleanup when my husband tried breaking up a bag of ice by banging it on the counter. Sure enough, the bag broke and ice went slipping and sliding across the counters and floors. Once again, I was on the floor cleaning up. My apartment was small, so we ate our fondue dinner at the coffee table in the living area. For dessert I had a chocolate fondue to put in my new wedding gift, a ceramic fondue pot. Since I had made the fondue the day before and stored it in the refrigerator, I thought I would be so cleaver and just scoop it into the pot that was warming over the Sterno. To my surprise, the ceramic pot blew-up as I poured in the chocolate. Rich and creamy chocolate exploded all over my guests, my husband, my furniture, walls, and ceiling. Between my tears and apologies, my guests all consoled me and let me know that this was truly a memorable dinner party..... Dixie. Have you had any culinary disasters in your past on par with this one? Tell me about it. Send your story to phil@tias.com

Out of the mouth of babes and pre-teens;

We were driving home to Connecticut after a visit to the Bronx Zoo on Saturday. Several times as we were headed out of the city my husband commented that he wasn’t sure which route to take, wasn’t sure if he had taken the correct exit, and so forth. After about 10 minutes of silence, our 11-year old son piped up from the back seat, “Dad, how much longer ‘till we get home now that we are on the right route?” My husband replied, “How do you know that we are on the right route?” My son’s factual response? “Because it we weren’t on the right route, you would have swore by now.” Priceless moments!

A reader requested recipe for "Lemon Pudding Cake" . We received the following...
Lemon pudding cake

4 eggs, separated
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 medium lemons)
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
whipped cream or whipped topping

In a medium mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and light yellow, about 5 to 6 minutes. Beat in lemon juice, grated lemon peel, and melted butter. In another bowl, combine sugar, flour, and salt. Add to first mixture, alternating with the milk, beating well after each addition. The batter will be thin. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form; fold into the batter. Pour batter into a buttered 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Set baking dish in a larger pan and add very hot water (boiling or nearly boiling) to a depth of about 1 inch. Bake at 350° for 45 to 55 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm with whipped cream or whipped topping. Lemon pudding cake recipe serves 6 to 8 - Carol Thomas--Cullman, AL

10. A vintage recipe request from a reader
As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.

I've been trying to find a recipe that my mother used to fix that I just loved as a kid. It was for tomato soup, using fresh tomatoes and I remember it having small pieces of tomatoes in it. We lived in Topeka, KS and this was about in the early 40's that I remember the soup. I sure hope someone can help me find it. Bev
