The L.A. Times test kitchen: You snooze, you lose

October 22, 2009 | 10:40 am

Times test kitchen manager Noelle Carter is testing key lime recipes this week. And you know what that means, right?

Key lime pie!

I was out of the office when Noelle made the first pie. She decided to test it again, and I decided to make it my business to be there for the next one. At one point, I sidled up to the fridge to take a look at the pie in all its golden meringue glory. Noelle said she'd put it out just as soon as it finished setting up. So, I waited. And waited. And waited.

And then I made the mistake of getting on the phone for an interview.

And this is what I found when I walked back into the test kitchen.
