I know this post is about pumpkin pie, but I'm intrigued by the turnips.> I just bought some macomber turnips at Russo's and think I'll use your recipe to roast them with shallots and apples. That sounds delicious!

Pie? Did someone say pie? You know my love and devotion for anything pie, right? And let's see...two children under the age of 4 1/2 - I am all about the canned pumpkin puree and pre-made pie crust. Bring it on!

no cinnamon? boyfriend and i are intrigued. if for some reason we have a need for more sweets around, we'll give this one a shot... we love pumpkin pie. he is partial to the "cooking for engineers" recipe... haha

Tammy forgot the secret ingredient: I like to add some fresh grated nutmeg in addition to the 1/2 teaspoon of dried stuff (maybe a couple pinches worth). This may make it more "spicy" than some like, but to me it makes it perfect. Thankk goodness I have a wife who has such things in the house - I would never even recognize "real" nutmeg on the street.

Funny...my kids all love pumpkin pie too. It's gone by breakfast the next morning. My husband makes it too, because he knows it's the only way he'll get one. I always want something chocolate (even for Thanksgiving).

Since I am the only one in my house who likes pumpkin pie, I never make it. But I might need to try this one at Christmas...are your kids available to strong arm, er, convince mine to try it (lest I end up eating the whole thing)?

Secret midnight pie is the best pie.

Whoops! Tammy DID include the fresh nutmeg, but it was in sneaky italics, the font enhancement that taunts me with its specialness.

Husband: Yes, I specialize in font trickery. And I agree that secret midnight pie is significantly better than the alternative: morning-after empty pie dish littered with crumbs.

Word Nerd: My kids are definitely available for peer pressure purposes, but I think you'll be surprised at how easy it is to eat the whole thing yourself.

Karen: Breakfast pie is second only to secret midnight pie. My husband used to always make them in twos: one for us and one for him only.

Emma: Nope, no cinnamon. See what you think (though I'm sure the Cooking for Engineers recipe is great, too).

Amy: Awesome. I'm a crust snob, but I guess Husband's pie wouldn't be Husband's pie if it had my crust, now would it? And I'm fine with canned pumpkin.

Julia: The turnip recipe is a good one. It turns turnip-haters into less vehement turnip-haters. I love Macombers, too!
