Nutmeg in baked potatoes. I was trying to make Otik’s Spiced potatoes from the Dragon Lance novels , but didn’t have the recipe.

I once put cinnamon instead of chili powder into four pounds of chili I was making for the freezer. We were poor then so we ate it all winter.

I once had a spice bottle of red pepper flakes spill as I was shaking them into a dish (the little plastic piece with the holes fell off and the entire bottle emptied). Needless to say, the dish was ruined.

Cookie making in a college apartment. My roommate and I confused the canisters and mistook the milk powder for the flour. The results were essentially super lacy cookies, tasty but really odd.

I made chicken stock with way, way too much salt. I’d invested the time and couldn’t bare to waste it. I froze it in quart bags, thinking I could water it down and use it for making rice or other non-soup uses.

But I didn’t label them, they looked like all the other stock. So for months it was Russian roulette when I defrosted a bag.
