No-Bake Chocolate Pomegranate Fudge Tart

These no-bake decadent desserts are definitely the way to go.  I recall making a couple in the summer time when I didn’t have to turn the oven on at all, and what a treat they were.  Now ’tis the season, and everywhere you look, flashes of red and green adorn the landscape – from christmas trees with red and green baubles to tables, from christmas sweaters to baked goods.  Today, I’m presenting a no-bake fudge tart with stunning red arils from the pomegranate.  These ruby red fruit that appear around Thanksgiving/Christmas time pack a mighty punch and have anti-oxidant properties and are a good source of vitamin A, C and E.  You can even eat the seeds, they burst in your mouth!


Oven Cooked Beef Pot Roast

He must have had some brownie points stashed away somewhere for me to have even entertained the idea of a succulent and mouthwatering beef pot roast that particular evening.   If you have been an ardent follower of Safari of the Mind, you will know that I’m talking about my husband, Bert.  It’s not very often that I cook a beef pot roast these days, but don’t get me wrong, we both love it, but for health reasons I try to limit our beef intake.  You should have seen his expression when I pulled this out of the oven!  I can’t tell you how moist and flavorful this one pot wonder was.  The prep work didn’t take too long either, and then, wham, boom, bang in the oven it went with all those flavors, perfuming the entire house.  I literally threw splashes of red wine in the pot without measuring, and wow, this was a winner!  Inexpensive cuts of beef are best for pot roasts.
