pre-made Oreo crust

Thanks for the help! I did look on the website but could not find the answer. I came here to see if anybody had actually tried this.

pre-made Oreo crust

I bought a pre-made Oreo cookie pie crust today and intended to use it with a baked cheesecake. It will be in the oven for 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Have any of you ever done this or will I be better off to make the crust from scratch?

The Alton Browncast

Thanks for taking the time to post about this. I kind of started backwards with the Ted Allen episode and really enjoyed it.

looking for gift providers

I see your profile says you are from Northern CA; I sent a gift box of Burgers bacon to a friend in Petaluma and she turned right around and re-ordered because they liked it so much.

Edited to say that I have sent gift boxes before from Burgers Smokehouse and the gifts were very well received.

Peanut butter pie recipe

I found this recipe online but have never tried it:

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...

I am not a fan of cream cheese in desserts so I will definitely add this to my recipe collection to try for a work event. Also, if you do an internet search for peanut butter custard pie, you'll come up with more options that don't have cream cheese.

Master Chef 8/21

I was wondering if the producers might have even invited the final five back after the fact to reshoot the episode with the same results that the original episode would have had. I too am curious to see if the Paula Deen shot vanishes from the episode.

Stupid move, Chow.

I noticed on the petition that somebody said they would hate to lose him over olive oil. Did I miss something? Was this cancellation somehow related to an oilve oil review??

He put it on his Twitter feed as well. This makes me very angry.

well known brands that just arent as good as in the past

Mush is the word I was looking for and it describes these very well. I ended up throwing away 5 out of the 6 donuts in the package.

I had one of the new chocolate donettes and the chocolate coating is different. I don't know how to explain it very well but the old coating almost had a snap to it when you bit into it and the snap is gone.

Monthly box of samples

Thanks! I'll go out and sit by the mailbox!

About what time of the month does the Goodies box usually arrive? I signed up last month and have yet to actually have a box arrive.

Edited to say that I meant this reply to be under the post by Becca.

Next Food Network Star Winner (2013) [SPOILERS]

I really have no idea what Guy Fieri's personal views are but I would not like to see him banned as one other poster suggested. I would prefer that viewers vote with their remote control and let the decision be made that way. I personally quit watching triple D a while back when he was in a diner with a very young chef who looked wet behind the ears and scared to death to be on tv (as I would be as well.) I guess he accidently insulted Guy and Guy jumped down his throat. I'm surprised it was not edited out but it was a turning point for me in regards to watching the show.

What's the most overpriced menu item you've seen?

This is not as bad as some of the other things mentioned but we have a diner in town that charges $6.00 if you want to sub a baked potato for the fries, It is even more than that if you want it stuffed with meat or cheese. $6 just gets you the plain jane potato.

Foods that make you sick?

Eating avocado causes my husband to double over in pain but I have no idea why. We have to be very careful when we go out for Mexican food.

POLL - Do you allow pets on your kitchen counters, are you male or female

Female, and no. I have a dog who can't reach up to the counter and cats on the counter freak me out. I worked with somebody years ago who had bunches of cats and would bring goodies (I use that term loosely) to work once-in-awhile. I can still remember the cat hairs sticking up out of those cookies like they had been rolled it.

What is the absolute worst cookbook you own. And why do you keep it?

I'm going to answer this by giving my most useless cookbook: The Fluff Cookbook which was given to me by a friend. Hello? First of all, I'm diabetic and even if I wasn't, I can't envision a scenario where I would make a Fluff and prune puree sandwich for lunch.

Forgotten Fast Foods

Back in the 80's, Long John Silver's had a shrimp salad on the menu for a short period of time and it was actually pretty good. It was mayonnaise based and probably didn't keep very well.

Food Court Wars; did anybody watch?

I watched the episode where it was Michigan comfort food vs the wraps ladies. I actually really liked the wrap concept and especially the fact that they make their own dressings. That would be a big plus for me in deciding whether or not to go in.

Next Food Network Star 7/21/13 - Spoilers

I think my biggest surprise (or let down really) for this season was Chad. When I saw the first episode, I thought he was a natural and would easily walk away with a win. His initial shine certainly faded as the weeks went on.

The American Baking Competition - Wednesdays, CBS-TV, 8pm EST

I finally watched the finale today and won't give it away either but the judges did zero in on one of my pet peeves. I absolutely hate eating a piece of cake that appears to have a nice buttercream frosting but it ends up being mostly cream cheese. Blech.

Forgotten Fast Foods

I worked at Wendy's back in the day and the salad bar was my responsibility. I can't speak for other Wendy's but it was a money loser at our store because people would come in, pay for one salad bar and two people would eat. I could not understand at the time why my manager didn't crack down but maybe he assumed that if people were hungry or had that little money, he wasn't going to embarrass them. Eventually the salad bar just went away.

Aplogies from Canada

I watched this and it does not offend me but I'm also acutely aware that when I tell people I'm from Missouri, some of them will assume that we live like this.

KFC-Customer Service-Do they care?

Interesting discussion on KFC. I like the original recipe but rarely get it because they are usually out at our local franchise. It is almost to the point where they just cook it on demand and if you are willing to wait, they will fry it fresh but if you don't want to wait, you either get the extra crispy or go somewhere else.

Things you wish you could "Untaste"?

I have to confess that my experience with pork rinds is limited to the deep fried kind that you find on the shelves of convenience stores but I was intrigued enough to try it. It was months ago and I still can't get over it.

On the menu of a mexican food restaurant I saw "pork rind taco." I wish I could re-think that decision. It was chewy like trying to eat a rubber band and the memory is not pleasant.
