      Thanks for your reply. Do you think for most of your recipes would a 7 cup food processor with an extra large feed tube work for size vs. the 9 cup with the extra large feed tube?

      There is a $50 difference and never owning a processor I wanted your advice whether or not to spend the extra money on the 9 cup. Thanks :)

        I test all my recipes in my own kitchen using my own equipment! So any recipe that calls for a food processor wass tested in the food processor that I linked to you!

    I need to know what brand and model of food processor you used in this sweet potato biscuit video.

      This is the food processor I use! http://astore.amazon.com/weelicious-20/detail/B001413A0Q

        Would you say a 9 cup Cuisinart food processor $120 is better for most of your recipes? The 7 and 8 cup are on sale for $99. Is the extra-large feed tube also a feature that is worth the extra money for the food processor you use and recommend? Do you slices whole fruits and vegetables?

          I like the extra large feed tube for when I’m grating a ton of cheese!

    My 3Yr old made the crockpot oatmeal with me after dinner. He is staying home tomorrow from school and we are going to make these biscuits. He is going to be so excited. I wish I had a picture of his satisfied grin when he turned on that crockpot tonight.
    Do you think I could use coconut oil instead of butter in most of these recipes? I love that stuff. Thanks for the recipes :)

    Hi Catherine~

    When I made it, the dough came very sticky. I followed the recipe and I may have put a little too much sweet potato but would this have done that? Also, I didn’t pulse..just blend?? They taste good, but it was so I couldn’t use cookie cutters..

    I have to say something, and its probably going to sting a bit, but I hope you understand.
    In the video, Catherine is wearing a cheap headdress, as is her daughter. I know its to reference Pilgrims and Indians, but it is not okay. It is not okay. It is wrong.

    I am a Native American. It is incredibly disrespectful, hurtful, and ignorant for anyone who is not Native American to wear a headdress. Any kind of headdress. They are sacred to our cultures. They are not just fancy hats. When non-Natives wear them, it does not honor us or our heritage, it insults us. No matter how much respect you mean it to have, it ONLY insults us. Especially when its clearly made from cheap materials, because its obvious you wanted to make a direct Indian reference, with no understanding of what a headdress is. Wearing a headdress to honor Native Americans is like wearing blackface to honor African Americans.

    I was greatly disappointed that Catherine had her daughter wearing a headdress. Its a shame that another generation is being taught to trivialize the Indigenous Peoples of our country, and to encourage hurtful stereotypes.

    The Thanksgiving most Americans celebrate today is based on a fanciful, happy, barely true story. Trying to celebrate what actually went down around the first thanksgiving would have to include the death of hundreds of Natives (women and children), and no one wants to ruin their family meal with the truth.

    Every single day, I and other Native Americans fight for our heritage, language, self-respect, and dignity. We fight the ugly stereotypes that society refuses to let go of. Everyday our culture is stolen and turned into a cheap commodity for public consumption.
    I hope you didn’t mean to be disrespectful,and I hope you will cut out the beginning of the video, to show respect for the Native American community.
    Thank you for reading this.

      I feel terrible that you had this reaction to the video. I hear what you’re saying. There’s no disrespect to yourself or the Native American community intended when we made this. I was just trying to advocate the positive spirit of the holiday and try to get kids involved in the cooking process, especially on such a joyful holiday. Please accept my more sincere apology.
      Best,
      Catherine

      Would it be possible to sub in a different type of flour instead ? Would coconut or almond work ?

      • catherine

        July 31, 2013 at 2:20 pm

        I haven’t tested those flours, but it’s worth a try!

    I would love to make these biscuits but I can’t find the recipe. How much milk is needed?

    Can I use agave and whole wheat flour instead? If so, how much of each?

    • catherine

      November 22, 2010 at 4:07 pm

      Whole Wheat Flour is little too dense and will not allow the biscuits to be airy and light, I would go with white whole wheat and test it out or just use plain AP. You can definitely use Agave too :)
