A Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad to wrap up 2015

A Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad to wrap up 2015

Hey there guys & girls! For this last post of the year I wanted to gift you with a special recipe. I know you will love this spicy, tangy & sweet salad that I developed recently. But before I get to that I just wanted to give a final wrap up of 2015.  (If you want the recipe & YouTube link now, just scroll down to the bottom of this post). So, that’s pretty much it, I guess. Yep, we are coming into the last week of 2015! And what a wonderful 2015 it has been! For me it has recorded the beginning of new adventures and served up some great new opportunities. The most wonderful thing is though, this year I have come to some eye opening life affirmations. When I started my teaching career (some 15 years ago) I had big goals. Goals, which I believe, with hard work I managed to achieve. I wanted to be the best teacher I can be, to secure more responsibilities, leadership roles & a good salary. I achieved all that and more and when I did I really was convinced that I was at the pinnacle of success. I had made it … or so I thought. When I decided to take a break from teaching in 2012 to pursue photography, I often wondered if I had made the right decision. I had a successful career and I gave it all up, was I crazy?

It’s been too long between posts, I know! Things have just been really hectic as we come up to the end of another year. Finalising photo shoots, the kid’s school functions, my little baby boy getting bigger and more demanding…and so the list goes on! Anyway, the timing of today’s post really couldn’t be any better as my Instagram has just (over the last day) moved into the 10k mark, which is very exciting! When I first started on Instagram, I really did so with no expectations. All I had in mind was wanting to be able to share my food photography, styling and my growing passion for cooking. It’s been just over 8 months since that first post and I still can’t believe how much it has grown and the opportunities that have come my way due to it. I am ever so grateful for all those who have been following, liking and giving such lovely feedback. Thank you all so much!! Recently, I have been experimenting with the Lebanese shortbread cookie (called ‘ghoraybeh’ in Arabic). They are sweet and soft and so ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ yummy! I have loved making & gifting them, every time adding twists to see what flavour combo would taste best. So here I have the recipe for you & for the first time I have also taken it to my You Tube channel The Lebanese Plate. It is my first cooking video and I have to admit I am not the best at moving image but if you bare with me, hopefully with time I’ll get better! Please go on over, check it out and subscribe! I hope...
