I hated pumpkin as a child. In fact, I completely disliked food and mealtimes. There was wholesale rejection of vegetables, and even cubes of fried chicken could make me scorn. All that changed once I started cooking my own food. Suddenly, I was in control. There was a great sense of pride, even with disasters. Today, I am always looking to try something different with what's in my fridge. Few things have lent themselves so easily to everything from Pies and Cookies to Soups and Mains like the humble Pumpkin. Pumpkin is so versatile and delicious, and also very good for you. Pumpkin seeds are a nutritional powerhouse wrapped up in a very small package. With such impressive nutritional value and equally great taste, how could you not want to try to incorporate it in different ways in your culinary creations? Last weekend, I wanted to attempt a Stromboli. I am sharing the recipe here. Next year maybe, I'll try to carve a grinning jack O'lantern.
