Reviewed Baked Sweet Potato Fries with La Boite Spice Mix

Nov 5, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I always go to Ina first when searching for a recipe on FoodNetwork and she did not disappoint me ! Only major modifications I made were to slice the sweet potatoes thinner (like regular fries), did not have coriander seeds so used 3/4t of ground, tossed everything together in a bowl before putting on the baking sheet to make sure all the sweet potatoes...

The pork smelled heavenly while cooking but even after 7+ hours in the oven, it still was not fork tender, and very greasy. The rice was ok-but was still crunchy after the stated cooking time. The accompanying beans were the highlight. They act...

Jan 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was delicious and very easy, just a little time consuming. I used 9 boneless chicken thighs instead of cut-up whole chickens. I was trying to use up a large bag of peeled garlic before it went bad so this was a perfect fit. I kept the sauce measurements the same (used regular brandy as I did not have cognac) and had a lot left over, but...
