Reviewed Old-Fashioned Sweet Potato Pie

Forgot to say that I used evaporated milk instead of the 1 cup milk. I didn't know you could make a sweet potato pie without evaporated milk. :)

Funny how one of the reviews threw me off, and I used nutmeg rather than cinnamon. Anyway, it's still good. Watching the video, Paula used a frozen pie shell. These are about 8.25 inches, not 9, and so she didn't use all of the filling. That might have baked in 35 minutes, but mine took 55, and I see some people are baking them for longer. It shouldn't...

This recipe leaves out the half teaspoon of salt that Alton adds AFTER the oats have been cooked with the 3 cups of water. He adds the salt then, and then the milk mixture. The point in the show is that petrosans won't come out of the oats and create a creamy mixture if the salt is added at first. So wait until the oats are creamy to add it. I don"

I really debated about giving this a 4 because it deserves a 5 and a 3. The 5 would be for ease, good directions, creativeness. The 3 would be for being low on the taste scale. I have to admit I did not use homemade chicken stock, which would have been better. I also used pre-cut bagged butternut squash. And I did not have creme fraiche. So I wil...

Mar 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow Tyler - really good recipe! I cook a lot but didn't really know how to make scallopped potatoes. Just for 2 people, I used four yellow potatoes, about a cup of cream (heated in microwave), shaker parmesan, dried thyme, fresh garlic, a little hot paprika, salt and pepper. Then when it was basically done, I added about 1.5 cups (5oz) of shredde...

I made half the recipe. Used only the rum I soaked the raisins in, which was fine, but it could have used more without being too much. Since I used less rum, I used a little more orange juice but it still wasn't as thin as what Ina made on TV and the lady fingers, though moist, could have been soaked a few seconds longer and not been too moist. It...

Reviewed Pie Crust

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made for a sweet potato pie. Turned out great. Love having a flaky crust on the bottom. I used sea salt and enjoyed the undissolved granules. Used lard and butter, both of which had been in the freezer about an hour. I cut the butter into smallish pieces before putting it in the freezer. Didn't have a spritzer bottle, so used a pastry brush, used...
