Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

roasted pumpkin seeds

every year after halloween, i roast pumpkin seeds from our halloween pumpkins.  yesterday, i cleaned the pumpkin seeds thoroughly, and placed them on a sheet pan sprayed with olive oil.

next, i drizzle them lightly with olive oil and season with a slight amount of fine ground sea salt.  mixing with my hands to distribute the seeds evenly on the pan, the tray is ready for the oven.

bake at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes and then continue to flip with a spatula until the seeds look dry and toasty.  this process could take about 20 minutes or so, depending on the amount of seeds and how evenly they are spaced on the sheet pan.  i baked these around 25 minutes yesterday.  the seeds could also be seasoned with pepper, cinnamon or any other sweet or savory spice from the pantry.

these are a delicious fall treat to enjoy every year.
