pizzas & pumpkins.
What a better way to kick off Halloween weekend than with date night! Keeping things simple with Boboli's pizzas crusts, we whipped up a Buffalo Chicken - Grape, Chicken & Pesto - and a classic Cheese. Simply add the toppings, bake at 450° for about 10 minutes (until the cheese has fully melted) - and enjoy!
As for the pumpkin carving, I'm not sure if the wine helped or hurt, but no fingers were lost in the process, so I'd say it was a successful evening :)
Tips & Tricks:
Treating ourselves after pumpkin slaving, I mean carving, to some delicious Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bites!
What You'll Need:
1 can pumpkin 15 oz or 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
2 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
Mini chocolate chips
Whip it up:
Add all ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix well. Pour mixture evenly into a lined cupcake tin and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. These cupcakes must set and cool, much like a pumpkin pie. You can put them in the refrigerator to speed up the process. Once cool, add a dollop of frosting and finish him off with two mini chocolate chips.

candied pumpkin seeds.
Last, but not least - the pumpkin seeds! To deter from halloween candy, I whipped up a sweet substitute with the same spices from the pumpkin bites.
What you'll need:
Whip it up:
Wash the pumpkin seeds thoroughly using a strainer. When clean, disperse evenly on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle about 1/2c of sugar, followed by a good dusting of cinnamon, a light dusting of nutmeg, and a little pinch of ginger. Melt 1/4c of butter and drizzle over the spiced seeds. Cook the seeds at 325° for abut 15 minutes, or until they are crunchy.
