Using the restroom shortly after cutting up some jalepano peppers and forgetting to wash my hands.

I think my worst was when I was in junior high school. My family still talks about it! We had learned to make baked alaska. I decided I would make dinner for my brother's birthday. I made our family lasagne recipe with a salad and baked alaska for dessert. Everything went fine until dessert. Set the oven to 500 deg. while whipping the meringue and the next thing I know the oven is shooting flames and smoke out the door! The run over from the lasagne had caught fire! It took a whole container of salt to put out and lots of fans to clear the smoke. Fortunately, it didn't damage anything permanently. We ended up having the dessert as a midnight snack after cleaning the oven.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Ive had two...a from scratch pie crust that was obviously too dry...it browned nicely and tasted great but it turned to dust rather than flakes and absorbed all the juice of the pie!

the other was actually worse...used a "natural gourmet rice" for a paella (standard recipe nothing out of the ordinary) and the rice just wouldn't soften beyond a distinct crunch...never had that problem before or since.

I learned that one way to avoid kitchen disasters is to not answer the telephone.

This one is silly, but forgetting to put the lid on the blender prior to pushing the 'PUREE' button!

Something to do with an over full Fry Baby and a handful of very wet hand cut fries
