Merry Christmas : Happy Holidays : Best Wishes and a Great Year 2014

I will probably not be blogging in the next few days (hopefully I can sneak one more post before this year is over). In any case, I wanted to say hello to my friends and wish you all a merry christmas and a happy new year and thank you all for supporting this cooking blog (that cooking blog I guess) and with whom I’ve had a blast interacting with, exchanging ideas with, talking about cooking and photography with, and learning lots and lots from.

I took this photo the other day and I’ve been wanting to use a pomegranate in some recipe just so I can share it because I really like it, but I give up (since, I’ve learned how to properly seed a pomegranate, not this “silence of the lambs” homage). The holiday colors are all in there, right? maybe not the holiday theme with reindeers and happy snowmen with carrot noses, because it does look like a crime scene instead, or maybe, just maybe it is an explosion of nostalgia over this crazy year that’s ending, and the anticipation over a new one which hopefully will be better than the last. I prefer this cheesy version.  It really was just me making a mess in the kitchen though.

  1. LMAO re silence of the lambs. I Love this photo. It’s gorgeous. Thanks for posting. It’s actually very apropos. During the Jewish New Year we eat pomegranates because the seeds symbolize renewal and good deeds. 🙂 Tonight though, I get Colombian treats. Looking forward to many more posts from you!

    1. :)!!! Thank you Amanda! I had no idea about the meaning of pomegranate in the Jewish New Year! and I’m so glad I got close with personal pomegranate symbolism hahah Colombian treats are so good! I made hallacas, they’re similar or more like a hybrid between mexican tamales and puerto rican pasteles. D-lish! Hopefully I can post about them soon!

  2. Beautiful photo, Paul! I’ve been enjoying pomegranate seeds in salads and to garnish a yummy cocktail we mixed up during the Christmas season. I hope you enjoyed a joyous Christmas with your loved ones!


    1. Thanks Allison, likewise! I hope you had a wonderful time during the holidays with all your family. I have yet to prepare something with this fruit. Can wait to get back in the kitchen soon. I’ve been packing all my things and moving to canada in a couple of weeks, so it’s pretty hectic around here now.
