PumpkinFest Popcorn

Salty, spicy & sweet, this popcorn is perfect for snacking while you're carving your pumpkin masterpiece tonight or watching scary movies... simply toss dried cranberries and spiced pumpkin seeds with hot popcorn and a sprinkle of salt. 

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
Spread seeds in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a spice mix of cumin, garlic salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and Chinese 5-spice powder over the seeds. Toss to make sure everything is coated and roast at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes until seeds start to brown. Keep an eye on them though - they'll go from brown to burnt really quickly!

Kind of unrelated, but I've been meaning to write to you for a bit with a DFO recommendation. Pita pizzas. We started making these when we were living in Cairo. Basically you just use pita bread as the dough, add some sauce (I like Don Pepino, it comes in a yellow can, but I don't know if it's available where you are), some cheese, and some toppings. Not really brilliant, but I like it better than subbing english muffins or bagels for the dough. More of a thin crust effect.

Love that idea - thanks! I'll go on the hunt for Don Pepino :)

BTW - where have you been, missy? miss your posts!
