Reviewed apple pie with leaf lard crust

Apr 6, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is the best apple pie I have ever made. I thought it was fantastic. The only problem I had was I accidentally used too much shortening. I did not have lard. I also made a mistake and put the butter in the pie crust mixture which of course I had lots of shortening and butter in the dough but I added some extra flour and it was rich, buttery and...

These are good, quick and easy but I guess I prefer a more yeasty type dinner roll. These are very convenient but I prefer more of a bread-like taste.

I don't know of anywhere around my city where I can buy prime. A chuck roast is an inexpensive cut of meat. So did everyone buy prime or choice?

This is the best meatloaf recipe. I won't make any other kind. Way too much salt. Flavor is wonderful. Holds together perfectly when sliced. I will be making this again.

I didn't have a problem with the vinegar and foil. Foil was intact when I removed the roast.

I made this today. I honestly did not see any difference between this recipe and just preparing it in a roasting pan, covered, with the same ingredients. I did not taste the vinegar at all. I might try this recipe one more time but in a roaster. Sorry, but I just wasn't impressed.

Very moist meatloaf. Love the flavor but way too much salt and I used kosher.

I used kosher salt and it still was too salty.

I am just not that sure if this is my favorite meatloaf. It was ok. I thought it was easy to put together, not a lot of work. The food processor made it easy. Not a big fan of cumin so thought I would tone that down if I made it again. It held up nicely, didn't fall apart. I liked the veggies. Haven't ruled this one in or out yet, will probably tr"

I just don't think I'm a big Cumen fan. It was overpowering. I liked all the veggies, easy to throw together. I liked the croutons. It had a little heat but I didn't think it was that hot. I guess for my taste, I would cut back on the Cumen. I might try this recipe again. I'm not sure. It held together nicely for me but it took a couple hours to b"

I liked this, but it was a little tart and I prefer tart to sweet. I think it could have a little more pineapple juice. I used the can juice and it worked fine. I like the flavor of alcohol but it did seem to overwhelm the flavor so probably would add lots of ice or more pineapple juice. It would be perfect as a slushy drink. I used the white tiqu"

I felt it lacked a lot of flavor. I followed the recipe exactly, very moist, but I feel it needs something else. I guess it is personal taste that dictates what we like. Nothing wrong with the recipe just needs something else. Not sure what it needs. ""

Just didn't care for it. Couldn't distinguish the different vegetables, not much flavor. Would not make it again.

In my opinion, I thought it was like eating sloppy joes with a little too much ketchup. Just wasn't that crazy about it. My husband liked it so I guess that is all that matters.
