Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Carving pumpkins may get the Halloween spotlight, but it’s roasting the seeds inside that’s become our favorite treat.

When I make smoked ham for dinner, everyone in the family is very excited.

It is a comforting meal that is served simply with good, warm, crusty bread, ideally on cold autumn or winter nights by the fire!
