Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds

Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds

When I think of carving pumpkins, there’s always a little light bulb in my head that says- pumpkin seeds. It’s one of those extra bonuses of the season. But what to do with them?

Breaded Pork Loin Chop

More rain. Still. I kind of like it for now. It means I stay in my house all day and do homework. Which is good for me. So Matt and I went to our local Safeway and managed to pick a 6 pound pork loin for just over $10! So we’ll be having a fair … Continue reading

Ham and Cheese Pretzel Bites

I have always wanted to make pretzels. In fact, I bought yeast for it. Over 5 months ago. So I decided to make them for appetizers for the barbecue we threw. They turned out absolutely delicious and everyone said they were addictingly good. But sometimes when you make something you realize that they probably weren’t … Continue reading

Our First Barbecue

Yesterday we went to the Devil Makes Three concert in Chico and had a barbecue for some drinking and eating before the show. It was our first time having a bunch of people over and, well let’s just say it was more people than we expected in our tiny apartment. We thought we were having … Continue reading
