but not all squashes are pumpkins!

'sfunny... I don't like pumpkin pie, but I like savory dishes with pumpkin, just plain ole baked pumpkin, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cheesecake. I guess it's a texture thing for me, like tofu.

Now SWEET POTATO PiIE??????? You'd be talking my language!

I love pumpkin pie, muffins, bread, soup, risotto, cheesecake, ice cream. I love almost all squash. But gotta agree with ChefJune - sweet potato pie is absolutely da bomb!

When my mom was visiting everyone seemed to be talking about sweet potato pie, so she made one! Real crust and everything. It was really good. And Ron, it is very similiar to pumpkin, but not as sweet. Plus it didn't have all the spices that pumpkin pie called for, but I guess you could put them in there.

I've got a friend that used to make the most amazing sweet potato pies. I think they're silkier than pumpkin. May just have to make one - is your recipe in Feastivals??? I'm goin' to go look.

Uh-oh!! Better not let them drive until they sober up!!
Must be all that beer they keep tasting!

Last couple of times we've made pumpkin pie, it was with real pumpkin - tasted pretty much like the stuff from the can. (At least, I'm assuming that it really was pumpkin in the home canned jars that said "pumpkin" on them from the in-laws... )

The last few times people in the brew club have made pumpkin beer (And this should top any squash vs pumpkin in the can debate) - THEY DIDN'T USE ANY PUMPKIN AT ALL!!!!! (Or squash)
They cheated and just used pumpkin pie spice!

I love pumpkin ale. There's a brewery in Hayward (ca) that makes a beautiful pumpkin ale - now that I have weekends off Bob and I can go get a bunch for the fall season. A brewery that used to be local made a Christmas ale that was like drinking gingersnaps Died and gone to heaven.
