Guess who's coming to dinner...

Uh oh...too much salt in Dad's favorite soup. Then Aunt Anne calls to say, "Anything too spicy destroys my sense of humor." Not to mention that the expensive endive you just invested your paycheck in is way too bitter even for your adventurous palate.

Fear not: Most kitchen problems are solvable, with a little knowledge of the science behind the taste of things. Quiz your way through cooking a nice dinner for the family, and find out how you can cover the tracks of kitchen slip-ups.

What's on the menu?
Vegetable soup
