Pomegranate Mimosa

I can’t believe it’s been five years since I started this wee little blog. Through this blog I have branched out in the types of foods I cook. There have been so many new types or methods that I tried due to blogging. I baked an Opera Cake, eclairs, a Danish braid, invented (at least new to me) baby bok choy pesto, and I made my own naan. It has been so much fun trying new things, I have enjoyed sharing it all with you, even if my Grandma is my only reader 🙂

These are the top 5 most popular posts:

These cute penguin appetizers.

The best cinnamon rolls ever!

Chocolate covered toffee –perfect for Christmastime!

Gluten Free Sticky Buns

and the number 5 most popular recipe is Chicken Chimichangas 

The first recipe I posted was for an egg bake. I have this love of all things brunch, so it is very fitting that the first recipe would be brunch related. Keeping with the brunch theme I am going to share a recipe for a perfect Christmas/Holiday brunch party cocktail. Pomegranate mimosas. This time of year pomegranates are all over the grocery store produce shelves. I used both bottled pomegranate juice and pomegranate seeds as garnish. This recipe is easily halved or doubled so feel free to make a little or make a lot!

Brunch, cheer, cocktail, Giveaway, holiday, mimosa


  1. Although all of your recipe posts leave me drooling, I think those cinnamon rolls have my heart. 🙂 All your “favorite things” snacks look super yummy too! 😉

  2. Hi Jamie! All your recipes look great! I am going to pick your grandma’s homemade noodles as my favorite. They look delicious!

  3. I’ll have to go with the naan-traditional meal, because I’m a kebab fan. Actually, I like the food photography best on this site–some nice shots and thoughtful composition. Keep up the great work.

  4. Noodles and chicken looks fantastic! I have to give it a try. I’m a Jamie in the Midwest too (KC)! Thank your husband for having the courage to link your blog to reddit r/food. I’ll bookmark you and stop by again. 🙂

  5. I think the five bottles of champagne in my basement will not be enough for Christmas once I start making your pomegranate mimosas!

    Thank you to Alex for bringing your culinary skills and this site to my attention.
    (Love those penguins!)
