Our Favorite Fall Snack: Popped Pumpkin Seeds

I can't help but share. This is our absolute favorite fall snack lately...

Popped Pumpkin Seeds


Place them on a hot pan with a bit of olive oil. 

Cover the top so you don't get fly aways. 

Pop, pop, pop!

Sprinkle with sea salt. 

Dive in with a spoon. They won't last long! 

Every time we make them we are surprised that something so simple is SO GOOD.
I think I'll go make some right now. :)


P.S. There is some hope for this blogger girl to get her act together here. :) I've been working on some posts lately. Stay tuned. 

Something fun

Our nephew comes TONIGHT from Utah. He'll be with us for a couple of months. We're super excited to host him. Danny's parents will also join us in about a week. We have one huge adventure planned.


  1. This sounds amazing! I will definitely be trying it. Miss your posts! Love the bits you've been sharing. :)

  2. Ha ha they are soooo addictive, love them though....

  3. Dried seeds or fresh?

    1. We use dried. I need to try using fresh, though - likely they'll need to bake for some time in the oven.

  4. I've been blog hopping for the past half and hour and I was so glad that I stumbled across your blog. Ever since I first heard that pumpkin seeds were high in protein, I usually keep them handy for snack time. I've never heard of popping them before, but I love the idea. I'm going to try this tonight. Thanks and have a great weekend... :)

  5. This sounds so good. Going to make this tomorrow.

  6. yay excited for more posts! Please do more food posts keep em coming!


  7. I miss your blog posts!!! It's been so long since you posted and I miss it!! :( Every day I check on your blog just to make sure I didn't miss it!

  8. I like pumpkin seeds too! It's one of my childhood snacks. Great post, thanks for sharing! :)


  9. I miss you guys! Where are you!!????

  10. So good!, but please update, I am beginning to hate pumpkin seeds, like I did IKEA :)

  11. You should get someone to post for you so we know if you are still okay. Hope you're just busy.

  12. Please post more. I don't want to take you off my bookmarks, since I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog up to this point, but it is disappointing to click on time and time again and find nothing new from you guys. Miss you!

  13. I found this blog a few weeks ago, started at the beginning and fell in love with your story, especially the "Love story" posts. I was looking forward to the engagement and then the wedding (sealing?). I never saw it. Did I miss something? I can't miss that. (first time poster) I hope all is well. I'm looking forward to the next posts - especially love story. I feel like I'm reading a novel but the last 2 chapters got ripped out Ha. Ive learned so much from you guys, thanks.
