The Filling or the Crust? We need your opinions!

Recent pie-related activities at Instructables HQ have incited the following question: Which do you prefer - the filling or the crust?I'm a crust girl myself, but recognize that is not the way of the world. Do you think there are cultural differences? Geographic preferences? Or perhaps just an early distaste for meringue that set me on the wrong path for life?Voice your opinions here and let the world know how you feel about pie!

What's the best (or your favorite) kind of pie? Answered

I'm a big fan of pie. Generally fruit pies are my favorite: I love fresh raspberry pie, and poached pear pie is downright classy. Of course, a friend just brought chocolate pecan pie to dinner on Saturday, served warm with vanilla ice cream. Mmmm. I'm not sure there's such thing as a bad pie.What's your favorite?

Apple Pie; how to keep the sliced apples from shriveling up?

Cooking in sugar tends to draw the moisture out of the apple and you end up with slim dried out slivers!!  I have had the same trouble if I cook carrots or sweet potatoes in the sugar! To prevent the carrots and sweet potatoes, I cook them separately and at the last minute I add the cooked sugar syrup!  But am at a loss as how to make the apples in a pie that does not shrivel up!

Play With Your Food Challenge: inquiry re: our rejected "Squash Pie" video entry

Dear Carleyy, Thank you for your email (copied below). We have carefully reviewed the instructions/regulations for the Play With Your Food Challenge contest at https://www.instructables.com/about/submit.jsp. We have scrutinized our own entry, and we are unable to see why our entry, "Squash Pie," has been rejected. We understand that the finalists have been chosen and are currently being judged. We kindly request that you review our entry. If our entry does not meet the criteria, please let us know how or why it has been rejected. While my sister and I participated in the making of our entry, it was my 10 year-old niece, Miele, who worked extremely hard on the concept for the video, the script, and the food preparation. She also edited the entire video on her own, including completing extensive research on non-copyrighted music to include. This was a self-directed project, and she was excited and proud of her achievement. We were all surprised and deeply disappointed to have been rejected without a clear explanation or reason. I have cc'd my niece and sister on this email; while I understand that you have many entries, and cannot respond to each entrant individually, we are very much hoping for a personal response, whether our entry is reconsidered or not. Thank you for your time, Becky Cook On Tue, Oct 4, 2011 at 11:57 AM, Instructables wrote: Hi beckycook, We regret to inform you that your project "squash" pie does not fit the requirements for the Play With Your Food Challenge.

How can I expand a men's pork pie hat? Answered

I just bought a men's pork pie hat that according to the website should fit my head. I ordered the XL which should be 60-61cm and should fit my head, but it didn't. Having spent $70 already on shipping, taxes and fees I would rather not spend $20 more on returning the shipping cost of returning it.

Fun Facts about Pi Day

The Pi Day Pie Contest is open until March 31st. Share a pie recipe to win a stand mixer. There's even a special judge's prize for the best pi-themed decoration. This year's Pi Day is special, because it's Pi Day ALL MONTH LONG. The third month of the fourteenth year (3/14) lasts for the duration of March, and it won't happen again for another hundred years. So get baking! Some miscellaneous Pi facts: (1) Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pie is a baked dish made of sweet or savory filling wrapped in pastry dough. They are often, but not always, circular. Expressed in terms of pie, π is the ratio of the diameter of the pan to the length of the crust. (2) Pi didn’t always have a name, much less a sweet Greek letter of its own. Contemporary use of the π symbol is thanks to mathematician William Jones, who in 1706 proposed using the letter p to indicate perimeter. Leonhard Euler, the same guy who brought you functional notation in the form of f(x), popularized π by including it in his work around 1737. Euler is responsible for many of the letters that bedevil beginning algebra students: i for the square root of -1, e for the base of the natural logarithm, and much of the notation for trigonometric functions. There is a Wikipedia page devoted to the list of things named after him, and it is enough to make an English major blanche in terror. (3) Pi Day is officially a thing, at least in the United States. In 2009, House Resolution 224 officially recognized Pi Day as a holiday on March 14th. Presumably as a kick in the pants for the education system, not as a literal example of political pork. Resolved, That the House of Representatives-- (1) supports the designation of a `Pi Day' and its celebration around the world; (2) recognizes the continuing importance of National Science Foundation's math and science education programs; and (3) encourages schools and educators to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics. (4) Pi is vaguely described in 1 Kings 7:23-26 in the King James version of the Bible. Solomon's pool should probably have been 31.4 cubits around, but he deserves some credit for getting pretty dang close. (5) Pie Day is on January 23rd, according to the American Pie Council, but they're still cool with celebrating Pi Day with pies.

can i mod a memory stick pro duo adapter (psp memory card) to instead fit a usb stick or maybe a SD card?

Im trying to find a way to modify a memory stick pro duo adapter to fit a standard usb stick or even a SD card. the reason for this is that i got ripped off on a online perches for a psp memory card adapter to fit for a MicroSDHC which i could use, but it instead it uses a micro M2 card, i do not own one of these, nor do i have the money to get one (tight on money), so i was looking around for the pinouts of the adapter and for USB and was hoping i could solder the like pinouts of the two to each other (do have proper soldering skill) so that when finished i could have a memory stick pro duo adapter that would adapt for a (preferred) usb stick, for my psp. any ideas?

Pi Calculator?

Hello all. I was at school this one day, and I asked some stupid question about Pi to my math teacher. He eventually told the class about how, when he was in school, the school got a computer, and hired a programmer to program it to calculate Pi. And it just kept on spitting out numbers. And it never stopped. NEVER! So, he would come in and look every day to see if it had figured out Pi. And all through his schooling, it didnt. I was just wondering, first of all, how would you make a program that keeps on spitting out numbers (pi) and NEVER stops? I mean, I have yet to see anything that can actually keep on calculating and NEVER EVER stop. Secondly, is there a program (.exe) that will do that? Just a simple command window that spits out numbers.. 3.14159 is what i know.. and i dont know if thats ever right! :P Anyway, I basically want something like what I described. I will put it on this old laptop I have and let it run. Probably under my desk or something. So.. yeah. Now, REPLY!! :) THANKS! :) :D :P :D :) :D :P :)
