Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are a family tradition for a lot of families in the fall, especially around Halloween. If you carve Jack-0-Lanterns, why not clean off the seeds and roast up those seeds. But did you know you can do more than just put some melted butter and salt on them? One of my favorite variations is the Garlic Parmesan Pumpkin seeds, though you have to be careful...this variation is easy to burn. I do it almost every time for some reason. I always end up burning like a third of my seeds.
Ingredient: Garlic powder
Stir-Fry is always tasty, but this one comes with a bit of a fruity twist! When we got back from GenCon, we were excited to talk about all the games we saw and played. Of course we ate a lot of food there too...but we didn't make any of it. So, we picked a few recipes with a common theme - dragon fruit - because GenCon always uses images of a dragon. It's kind of their mascot.
Conventions keep you on your feet and busy for long periods of time, sometimes a lot longer than you're used to. It's important to make sure you eat and stay hydrated! Snack mixes are great to eat to give you a boost until your next meal time, and they don't make a mess on your fingers while you play the games! This is a more traditional, healthy snack mix that you can put into plastic bags and tuck into your bag at the convention.
