Halloween Treats: Recipes and Crafts for the Whole Family

Here's another in the collection of Halloween cookbooks. Halloween Treats: Recipes and Crafts for the Whole Family by Donata Maggipinto offers up the usual food, fun and frights. I have already told you what a wuss-I-was for Halloween. Frankly, I am not much better now. But I just might come out from behind the chair to grab up a handful of these treats. Again, not a drop of sugar.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
2 cups pumpkin seeds (from about a 4-pound pumpkin)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1 tablespoon dried basil

Rinse seeds well in cold water, being sure you have rinsed away any fibrous strings, and pat thoroughly dry.

Transfer to a large bowl and add oil, salt, rosemary and basil, stirring well to coat seeds with oil.

Spread seeds on baking sheet in single layer.

Bake in preheated 350-degree oven until crisp and golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
Do not give them to children. They will simply spit them back at you or worse...

Here is my favorite version of Season of the Witch by Luna. It was on the I Shot Andy Warhol soundtrack.
