No matter how you carve, slice, steam, roast, drink it, I LOVE PUMPKIN! (Carve as in pumpkins, slice as in pie, steam as in cook, roast as in seeds, drink as in latte….)
This year I carved one pumpkin and cooked another. I wish I had taken a picture of my carved pumpkin before I fed it to the buffalo. Next year…. My other pumpkin I cooked in a way similar to how I steam squash. Scoop out the seeds and goo in the middle, peel, chunk it up, and steam it until soft. I had SO MUCH pumpkin! I used some of it for my healthy organic pumpkin brownies and some of it I used for these scrumptious whoopie pies.

Pumpkin Seeds are one of the best parts of Halloween! There’s nothing like slow roasting pumpkin seeds on a cool crisp October day while the family carves their pumpkins and decorate for the Fall. Below is my recipe for how to roast pumpkin seeds:
1. Select a pumpkin.
