Elegant and Sophisticated Free Printable Gift Tags

There are honestly so many things you can waste your money on during the holidays. One of those things are gift tags! Really, it is only a temporary name tag so you know which gift goes to which person. They are not something I really want to spend a lot of money on. But, I have to admit, I love to make things pretty. I love giving gifts that are beautiful even before you unwrap them. Maybe that's just me, but I think a lot of women like to give "pretty" gifts.So that is why I created these elegant and...

Sweet or Salty Pumpkin Seed Recipe! Roasting Pumpkin Seeds can be a fun activity for the kids too!
Appetizers, Food + Drink, Halloween, Holiday, Thanksgiving

Sweet & Salty: Pumpkin Seed Recipe

I had never had any interest in roasting pumpkin seeds, until my youngest came along and literally eats anything & everything "crunchy." Combine it with a fun activity to do with the kiddos?  Golden.Pumpkin Seed Recipe I adore this recipe, because you can make it salty or sweet; depending on the mood you're in!  If it were just for me?? I'd probably put a little chili powder on them, to give them a little "kick." But if kiddos are partaking in the snacking, boiling them in sugar instead of salt, and topping with cinnamon and/or brown sugar, may be more up their...
