Not only are you the only person in the world who doesn't like that stuff, you are the only person in the entire universe. ;-)

These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter... I go somewhere to get something and then wonder what I'm here after.

Me too. I bake them, add butter, salt & pepper.

To me - a sweet potato only needs a little bit of cinnamon. No added fattening stuff.

I used to hate pumpkin pie, sweet potato and yams! Then I got older and had a slice of pie and sweet potato pie and fell in love, and now I love anything and everything pumpkin and sweet potato! Go figure!

That's how I like fresh baked sweet potatoes too.

The salt, pepper & butter brings out the sweetness of the potato!

But I like the sweet casseroles too.

You're probably the only one, but that doesn't mean we eat those foods with brown sugar, etc. I eat sweet potatoes with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar with no butter and no brown sugar, but I'd rather eat them with brown sugar and butter any old day.

That thing with sweet potatoes and marshmallows that people have at Thanksgiving makes me wonder about their sanity.

I don't understand pumpkin pie either. It just tastes of the spices, pumpkin doesn't really taste of anything on its own.

And don't get me started about Cool Whip.

Come on everyone...I just don't like the taste of sweet potatoes and pumpkin and all the gooey stuff (marshmallows) that go with it. Don't slam me for my taste buds,,,can't help it. Give me a break. K

Hate to see sweet potatoes turned into candy! They need a bit of butter, some salt and pepper, and if I am feeling very exotic, I like to sprinkle a few toasted pecans on top...but no marshmallows or sugar! DH is huge pumpkin pie fan so I make one and it is all his.t,

If you think about it, many of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes we are used to are really nice, healthy foods gone terribly wrong with tons of butter, sugar, or other horrors! Even green beans get loaded down with sodium and greasy onions in that infernal casserole which I have never liked. Cool Whip should be banned as a non-food substance....

Kacky, I am not a fan of eating pumpkin either, however a sweet potato french fry is good.

Kacky, You asked fellow RS folks their opinion and they have responded. If you did not want an answer, should you have asked? They are just stating an opinion just like you stated a particular taste. We all are different in each, but that's ok. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

I'm with you Kacky! When I see one of those sweet potato casseroles with sugar and marshmallows I want to run a mile. Sweet potatoes are already sweet and delicious, talk about gilding the lily! lol.

As for pumpkin, I like pumpkin bread and roll but not pumpkin pie. I make one for the rest of the family but I am a pecan pie girl.

My girlfriends are all mad for the pumpkin spice coffees that are available this time of year but they are so sweet and fake to me. Give me a nonfat latte or a cup of English breakfast tea any day. Same when we go for girls night out. They all get these sweet exotic drinks which are disgusting to me. I want a nice glass of red wine! Each to their own,I guess.

I can't stand sweet potatoes and it's fortunate for me since they are top of the list of foods high in oxalates which promote kidney stones. But I DO like all the pumpkin breads and pumpkin pie and coffee cakes, etc. that we can find this time of year. But after I have a little of it, I'm done until next year at this time.

I have to be in the mood for pumpkin pie and it has to have a certain taste. I don't like the brown sugar taste. I like sweet potatoes but don't put brown sugar in them.

You would like Thanksgiving at my home. Roasted Turkey, bakes sweet potatoes, fresh brocelli, small amount of stuffing, take the turkey drippings & defat them to make a turkey broth for the stuffing.

No, you're not the only one. I hate pumpkin pie or anything pumpkin and sweet potatoes too! Yuck!!

VCamp27481320160601.176494 PostsRegistered 4/20/2006

No, you're not alone. I don't like pumpkin and I think the sweet potato casseroles smothered in brown sugar and/or syrup, sometimes with those little marshmallows on top is gross! Rachel Ray might say "Yummo" but I say "Yucko"

my husband doesn't like sweets either - which is good as he is a diabetic. He does not miss having to give up desserts at all.

No sweet potatoes for me!!!!!

I'm with you Kacky and MarthaStewardess. Have never cared for either pumpkin anything or sweet potatoes (on their own, in a casserole, any way). I really have zero sweet tooth which must be why. Don't care for carrots either (I know, there - I'm truly the only one.) I once sent a dinner in an expensive restaurant back because the unknown "vegetable of the day" was pumpkin souffle and it was "touching" my fish. Husband thought it was funny - he's used to me and knows I'm never going to eat either.
