Pumpkin Seeds at Home

After Halloween we’re left with pumpkins of all sizes here and there. Here’s a simple pumpkin seed recipe. Everyone at home loves this pumpkin seeds recipe.


– Pumpkin seeds

– 1 tsp of butter

– 1 pinch of salt


– Heat up oven at 345 F.

– Take the pumpkin seeds out of a pumpkin. Wash them throughly and place on a round baking pan or big plate where you can spread them out well. Let them air dry for about 4-6 hours or overnight.

Heat the butter until it melts and add the salt. Mix well. Add the seeds to the butter mixture. Cover a baking pan with a baking sheet. Place the seeds on the pan making sure they are well spread appart.

– Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until seeds are brown.

– Enjoy! 🙂


Blue Moose Pizza – Vail, CO


The Blue Moose Pizza. An inviting, fun, family friendly place with delicious pizza. We were driving on Colorado’s I-70, passing through Vail, on our way to Aspen.

The stop was more than we could ask for. This is a place I’d recommend anyone, specially families. Fresh home-made pizza dough, light sauces, abundant mouth-watering flavor. We ordered the traditional flavors my family loves: Hawaiian, pepperoni, black olives and beef. However, the menu is full of other wild awesome combinations.

The staff is friendly, bathrooms are extremely clean. The place is decorated beautifully. I loved the decor, especially the lamps.


They feature a blue moose sculpture which is sure to attract your attention too. Nowadays their blue moose is wearing its Christmas gear. 🙂 


The waiter told us a fun story about the decoration of the place. For their grand opening, the owner invited his kid’s 2nd grade class to draw moose paintings which today still decorate the walls all across the place.

Tables are covered with huge blank paper and buckets of crayola. My kids immediately worked hard to leave their very own artwork legacy.

 Located at the heart of Lionshead Village, the huge glass windows offer a view of  the village skating rink and a magnificent panorama of Vail ski enthusiasts.
