A Pumpkin Seed Recipe Round Up & We Have a Winner

We enjoyed a nice long weekend and having the family together for a couple of nights was super special!  Someone at the gym wished me happy humpday this morning and I suddenly realized that it's Wednesday and I haven't posted on the blog this week AND we have a winner to announce.  So I'd better get to it!

The other night our teenager and his friend carved pumpkins.  I was secretly relieved because I had not planned to carve (or even purchase) a pumpkin.  Is that bad?  Anyway, he was thoughtful enough to save the seeds and I promised to make something yummy with them.  Here is a round up of some of the many recipes I've found using pumpkin seeds.  Do you have a favorite?

And now for our lucky winner...

Thanks to everyone who entered and a huge thank you to LoveFeast for sponsoring this fun giveaway!  Leigh, I will be emailing you shortly.  Congratulations!

Favorite Dinners From Pinterest

Mr. and I love to cook together and we especially enjoy trying new recipes.  Together we've managed to try what seems like of hundreds of new recipes from pinterest - some of them have become favorites.  So, if you're like me and love a good recommendation, you might like to see what we thought was a "do again".  Here goes...

Spicy Fish Tacos - If you love fish tacos as much as we do, you will love this recipe!  I've even cheated a little by purchasing fish fillets in the freezer section, cooked them accordingly, and topped them with the yummy slaw and crema.  Tip:  the crema goes on easier if you put it into a squeeze bottle.

One Pot Mexican Skillet Pasta - This dish is great for those nights when someones wants Italian and someone wants Mexican.  Sort of taco meets spaghetti.  This dish is super easy and depending on how big your family is, you might have leftovers.

The Best Homemade Meatballs - I've always made spaghetti with a recipe that is in my head.  No more!  This is my go to recipe and it really is worth the extra steps to make the meatballs.  I highly recommend using the tomato sauce recipe with it.

Kielbasa, Pepper, Onion, Potato Hash - Chop it all up and throw it in the pan.  Done!

Spinach Gorgonzola Pasta -  I realize that not everyone loves Gorgonzola.  But lawdy, if you do love it, you are sure to like this rich dish!  I would consider it the ultimate comfort food!

Now it's your turn, do you have some favorites you found on pinterest?  Please share the link in the commments.
