3 Recipes for Pumpkin Seeds

October 14, 2014 12:15 pm

Even if you make roasted pumpkin seeds every fall, there are so many different recipes for this autumn snack that you probably haven’t tried them all. Here are three unique pumpkin seed recipes that will give a new taste to one of your favorite fall foods.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds [AllRecipes]
Two hefty teaspoons of butter help to bring out the natural flavor of the pumpkin seeds in this simple, basic recipe. Whether you buy a bag of seeds from the grocery store or extract them from the pumpkin yourself, you just can’t go wrong with this fall snack.

Pumpkin Seed Pesto [Whole Foods]
Fans of pesto will adore this unique recipe, which combines the fall flavors of pumpkin seeds with the unexpected taste of cilantro pesto. Store the finished product in your refrigerator to spread on sandwiches, drizzle over pasta, or use as a topping for baked chicken.

Asparagus, Potato and Spinach Galette [Woman's Day]
Galettes are very popular because of their versatility and their beautifully rustic appearance, and this one incorporates pumpkin seeds in a way that you’ve likely never tried before. Fill the rolled pie crust with Gruyere cheese, asparagus, and Yukon gold potatoes to create a truly filling meal that’s pretty enough to serve at parties or holiday gatherings.

Burgers and Shakes Are Served With a Side of All-American Charm at Shake Shack

October 7, 2014 11:55 am

For diners who've already bitten into one of Shake Shack's juicy cheeseburgers, the fast-casual franchise needs no introduction. But for the uninitiated, here's a primer: Founded in 2004, Shake Shack was born from a single hot dog cart in Manhattan's Madison Square Park. Nowadays, the "modern-day roadside burger stand," as the restaurant puts it, boasts more than 35 Shake Shack locations worldwide.

Here in KOP, there's a Shake Shack just on the fringe of the King of Prussia Mall Plaza parking lot. Opened in 2013, the location earns the unique distinction of being one of two solar-powered Shake Shacks, but the menu offerings here are identical to what you'll find at Shake Shack locations worldwide: wax paper-wrapped burgers, griddled hot dogs, and crinkle cut fries, all of which bolster the franchise's all-American, old-school vibe by being made to-order. Dessert isn't overlooked here, either: Straws stand upright in Shake Shack's hand-spun milkshakes, while Concretes tempt a sweet tooth with spoonfuls of creamy custard blended with the diner's choice of candies, cookies, and sauces.

Shake Shack's King of Prussia location is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. The promise of draught beer and wine by the glass up the franchise's popularity; expect a wait.
