Salt Lake City 10/10

Last weekend I visited Salt Lake City to surprise my mom for her 40th birthday!
It was a success and I'm glad that everyone involved could keep it a surprise!

While I was there, I had to hit up my absolute favorite vegan restaurant, Sages!
(previously blogged about here)

This time we went for lunch. My two Jen's got philly cheese steak subs with tempeh
and I got a grilled chick'n pesto sub. Of course to top it off, the best slice of tiramisu!

Later we attended a cookie party and it was so much fun!

The night before I left, my family got together to carve pumpkins!

My favorite part of fall is fresh baked (and salted!) pumpkin seeds, mmm...


  1. how do you bake your pumpkin seeds? i have some to bake from my pumpkin but i have never done it before! p.s i love your leg tattoos!

  2. thanks!

    so after you've carved your pumpkin, separate the seeds from the guts. put them into a colander and rinse them very well. pat dry. make a single layer of seeds on a cookie sheet and salt. bake at 325 for about 10 minutes. stir them around once during baking. (make sure to check on them, you don't want to burn them... and make sure they aren't slimy, those would be undercooked)

  3. thank you! they turned out perfect!
