I have to admit that as much as I enjoyed the pumpkin soup I made the other day, the part I was most excited for was the crunchy gems hidden within the pumpkin. Toasted pumpkin seeds are such a delicious, addictive treat. You have to go through the work of buying and slicing (or carving!) a pumpkin in order to enjoy this seasonal snack and the extra effort makes them so special.
I used the sweet & spicy recipe on 101 cookbooks by Heidi Swanson, a woman who has come to pretty much control my diet.
