Hi all,

For the last little while I’ve been blogging my recipes on my main blog, gnatj.com

Some of the recipes I’ve posted are:

Sourdough bread

Chicken pie

Sausage apple bake

French onion soup

Today Aaron and I carved our very first halloween pumpkin.  There were a ton of seeds and instead of throwing them away, I roasted them.

Fresh pumpkin guts


  • Pumpkin seeds (or any squash seeds)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt



  • Preheat your oven to 140ºC and line a baking tray with tin foil
  • Rinse off any pulp or strings from your seeds
  • Pat dry with a cloth and place seeds in a bowl
  • Pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil over the seeds and sprinkle with as much salt as you like
  • Spread the seeds on the baking tray in an even layer
  • Roast seeds for about 15 – 20 minutes or until they start to pop
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!

Yummy roasted seeds

More and more I find myself experimenting with baking and cooking and then sharing the successes on my blog.

So much so that I decided to create a separate space for those successes.

I will be adding all my current posts here and I will try take as many pictures of the process and finished products too, something I have been a bit slack with.

Im also going to be having guest contributers so if you want to add a recipe please leave a comment and I will be in touch.

Happy cooking!
