Pumpkins and the Best Pumpkin Seed Recipe

First I must share the carved pumpkins: Sleeping Beauty did Dorothy and Toto from "The Wizard of Oz" and Cinderella did an Ariel pumpkin from "The Little Mermaid."  I will have some better pictures when we take them tomorrow night.  :)
Is anyone else noticing how grown up lil Sprite looks?!

I cook the pumpkin seeds every year and have tried a ton of recipes.  Here is the best recipe I have come across.  Go here or see below for the recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Seeds from  It is so easy and yummy to the tummy!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

1 1/2 Tablespoons margarine, salted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt (I just use garlic powder.)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds


Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
Combine the margarine, salt, garlic salt (OR garlic powder), Worcestershire sauce and pumpkin seeds.  Mix thoroughly and place in a shallow baking dish.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Enjoy and have a safe and fun Halloween!
