Beginnings carry with them excitement and anticipation mingled in with a touch of apprehension. That is how I feel about this new endeavor: both giddy and nervous. But the possibilities are endless and the potential infinite. That is the magic of a new year; a new blog.
Welcome to my little creative enclave. I hope you enjoy.
The theme for my first post is the pomegranate. The symbolic fruit best represents our wishes for a new year filled with health, blessings, and prosperity.
And what better delicacy than Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Seeds
Use 2 cups of seeds (from approximately 2 large pomegranates)
8oz. of Bittersweet or Semisweet Chocolate
(yes, your toddler may steal a few...)
1. Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper
2. In a double boiler, temper chocolate until fully melted.
3. Mix in the Pomegranate seeds
4. Drop spoonfuls onto paper. Refrigerate.
Voila! A simple treat you can present your host or serve your guests!
I wish you all a Shana Tova U'Metuka. May your upcoming year be filled with successes, accomplishments and new beginnings. And may it be as fruitful as a pomegranate.
