A Tasty Pie from The Organic Cook's Bible

I'm glad I was asked to review The Organic Cook's Bible because I ended up loving this "Pumpkin" pie made with butternut squash. If you'd like to try the recipe I used from the book, the link is here. I omitted the molasses because I didn't have any and substituted maple syrup. I also had enough filling to make one ramekin. Next time I may make all ramekins and serve at a dinner party with whipped cream.

For those who want to go organic, but don't know how, The Organic Cook's Bible is a fantastic resource. When I was asked to review it, I knew it would end up being one of my go-to books as we get a produce box from an organic farm CSA every week from June to October.  It also details how to store and prepare all the produce we receive.

Actually the book is much more than a produce guide; it also covers meat and poultry, dairy and eggs, beans and grains, and herbs and spices.

In the book, there are over 250 recipes, many contributed by leading organic chefs. 

Looking forward to a birthday dinner tomorrow evening hosted by a dear friend. Everything will be organic(except the wine)... it's the way she has been cooking for 20 years and I have learned a lot from her. 

I am joining Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm.


  1. that looks sooo good, I never thought of substituting out pumpkin, sounds like a great cookbook too! Thank you for sharing this,

  2. Crumb top!
    It looks great Debbie.I love that sever you bought.

  3. Looks so yummy, Debbie!...Christine

  4. Sounds like a great seasonal pie and a yummy cookbook Debbie:@)

  5. The pie looks so good, Debbie, and I really love your pie server, too. The cookbook sounds like a great resource and would be a pretty coffee table book, also.
    I hope you're enjoying your beautiful Fall in NY. xo

  6. Debbie, it looks so tasty. My husband loves pumpkin pie, so think I'll make this and not tell him the secret ingredient. ;-)

  7. Probably the only squash I like! It looks good! I am off sugar for 4 months now, very difficult. I will try substititinG splenda for sugar in the recipe. Going organic except for the wine is like being a little pregnant, lol! My cousin says he is a vegetarian, organic, dairy free etc. When he thinks no one is looking I see him popping things into his mouth, too funny!

  8. I love butternut squash but have never tried baking a pie with it. I'd love to see how it compares to pumpkin pie! I try to buy everything organic that's on the 'Dirty Dozen' list.

  9. Belated birthday wishes, I hope you had a lovely day with your friends. I'm going to have to try butternut squash next time I'm wanting a pumpkin pie.

  10. This looks like such a nice pie recipe to usher in the fall. Yum! Joni

  11. This looks so delicious!!! Yum! I love butternut squash!
