It’s coming up fast now… That month of the year that everyone gets busy finding easy and festive recipes to please the entire family.. or the ultimate recipe for a nice evening with friends. Have you got your Christmas already planned out or are you still waiting for Thanksgiving to happen? Or as here in the Netherlands Sinterklaas… We don’t have kids so Sinterklaas kind of passes us by each year even though we have been celebrating our own version of it for more than ten years now with friends. We call it Sinterkerst (kind of like a mix of Sinterklaas and Santa so to speak)

I will try – in the coming period running up to Christmas – to serve you delicious, easy and festive meals for some december inspiration. Some – like this one – are from the old archives. I made this dish all the way back in 2011. And I can still remember how much I liked it! (and yes that picture is also taken in 2011. Need I say more?) It’s ideal to start a festive evening of. And pomegranate will always be one of my favorite fruits. It is so pretty and that lovely red color goes so well with the december month. The recipe is literally done in a few minutes. Perfect for an evening without stress!

  1. An oldie, but a goodie! Lovely way to use pomegranate seeds — and their flavor just works with goat cheese. Thanks.
