Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


Carving pumpkins is a fun fall activity, but don’t let those delicious pumpkin seeds go to waste! Using a large spoon, scoop out the insides out and put them in a bowl of water to separate the seeds from the pulp. Pull out the seeds and place them in a colander, rinse under cold water and shake dry.

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Toss pumpkin seeds lightly in oil and a pinch of salt to taste.
  • Place seeds in a single layer on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Include the kids! This is a great way to teach children about cooking, and how fruits grow from and produce seeds.


Christina is an odd combination of a perfectionist that insists on things happening organically, or according to nature. She wants to have all the control, yet leave life up to chance, and it is a concept that she admittedly constantly struggles with. Her love for her family puts a spark in her eye that only happens with movie effects. A self proclaimed hermit, she laughs at the hypocrisy of her love for party planning. Christina’s message is the importance of slowing down, and reclaiming joy by surrounding yourself with people and things you love. "I am going to make everything around me beautiful," she says, "that will be my life."
