A New Baby and Spiced Pepitas with Cilantro Pesto (the pepitas, not the baby)

First off - we'd like to congratulate Too Many Chefs alumnus Justin (once of Bogotá, now of Switzerland) and his wife Emily on the birth of their first son, Bennet!

Second, here's an application for that cilantro pesto we made last week. We had some last night on pasta (I know, pesto on pasta - who woulda thunk it?) with a handful of toasted spiced pepitas. Delicious.

Here's the recipe for the pepitas (pumpkin seeds which have had their shells removed so only the green inner seed is left):

Spiced Pepitas

1 cup raw, unsalted pepitas
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp chili powder or cayenne
3 tablespoons lime juice

Melt the butter in the pan. When it starts to foam a bit, add the pepitas and toss well to coat.
Add the salt, cayenne and lime and toss well. Cook, stirring frequently over medium-high heat until the pepitas start to take on just a little color.

Cool and eat with your fingers or better, add some to pasta dressed with a couple of tablespoons of our cilantro pesto - s'nice!

Congratulations to Justin and the Ambassatrix! I didn't even know they were pregnant!

Thanks, chefs. The little guy has a great appetite (considering the
bland and limited menu). When can you start kids on spicy Thai food?
Six months, if you puree it, right? I will send photos, Meg.

These are extremely beneficial and even if
your car does not have one, they can be purchased at
online retail stores and even auction sites.
They always seem ready to jump to another level which we may be uncomfortable with at first,
but later we find ourselves excited about the end result
whether we admit it or not. According to Pew's Internet and American Life Project, 350 million people worldwide
belong to Facebook, one of the most popular social networking sties today.
