I'm loving juicy pomegranates! They are in season now!

This beauty came home with me from the grocery store yesterday, then I used it in a sketchbook journal page with the bottle of wine. This is my homework for the final class from Joggles with Jane LaFazio.

....and below a free motion stitched collage of pomegranates with pears. [For sale on ETSY! see my link in the side bar]

Here is a link to more artisic inspirations from pomegranates! I love seeing all these wonderful, creative approaches!
Now to bake the dessert we are taking to the Thanksgiving meal and service at church tonight.
These are so easy (and no soggy crust as in pumpkin pie)!
Pumpkin Spice Bars
1, 18.25 oz pkg of spice cake mix ( or similar size cookie mix)
1 egg, 2 TBS. butter
Mix this together and spread in a 9X13 pan ( or similar). Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat 1, 8 oz. pkg. low fat cream cheese until fluffy, add 1, 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, 1, 15 ounce can of pumpkin, 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Pour over the crust. Sprinkle 1 cup chopped pecans over filling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Chill. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.

Pomegranates are so good and so good for you, too. Your paintings really capture them so beautifully.

The pumpkin bars sound delicious!! What size pkg. of cream cheese do you use?

I just fixed that in the recipe. It is 8 ounces and I use Neufchatel cheese.
Naturally lower in fat.

Oh, I DO love these--actually, I love all your work! That wine bottle is amazing--I appreciate how "tricky" watercolor can be; you've mastered it! I hope you'll link to Facebook on your blog, so your fans can share on their sites!

I am looking for a way to link to Facebook.
