At the market this weekend Flour Child Bakery will have a new addition to their pie menu… Vanilla Bean Honey Pie by the slice as well as whole 9-inch pies… and free sample. Look other fall favorites including Pumpkin, Maple Bourbon Pecan, Sweet Potato, and Salted Caramel Apple Pies.

My Vegan Sweet Tooth will have Chicken Burgers as a regular at the market.


The second annual Hampton Roads VegFest takes place today at Chesapeake City Park in Chesapeake from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 8. In addition to lots of restaurant and other vendors, OBFM fave My Vegan Sweet Tooth will host a pie-eating contest where 15 contestants go fork-to-fork in scarfing down an entire (every crumb counts) vegan peanut butter-chocolate mousse pie for top honors and prizes.

How do fish always know what they weigh? … Because they take their scale with them everywhere they go!

Don’t throw away those pumpkin seeds – use them like you do a nut (or sunflower seed) for snacking out of hand or in recipes, from baked goods to granola. You can also use them to top soups and salads, and, if you change up the seasoning to sugar, on desserts.  Here’s how to make them:


Preheat the oven to 325F. Mix the 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds with 1 tablespoon canola oil and 1 teaspoon sea salt in a small bowl. Transfer the mixture to a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring every 5-7 minutes and watching to make sure the seeds do not burn. Allow to cool before eating. Yields 1 cup.

You can also use my homemade Pumpkin Spice mix on the seeds; it was featured in a previous newsletter or you can email me for the recipe at PatrickEvansHylton@gmail.com
