DELICIOUS recipe! My most favorite roasted seeds by far. Simple, easy to make, and came out perfectly. I used the seeds from 2 acorn squashes and cooked for 35 minutes. I wish I had more! Read More

Healthy quick snack. I literally use all of my Halloween pumpkins so nothing goes to waste. Scooping the seeds out and using them as a healthy snack works well. The recipe was quick and easy and the seeds came out delicious. I made them as hot and spicy roasted pumpkin seeds adding a little Cayenne Pepper Chili Pepper Cinnamon Nutmeg and Ginger. I used a few drops of Tabasco sauce instead of Frank's. Read More
