Dear Kath,

According to Nigella Lawson you can just cut a pomegranate in half and thwack one side with a wooden spoon and the seeds fall right out. You should try that!


P.S. I think you should have your own cooking show! Your personality would be great for a food network program!

THANK YOU!!! I love pomegrantes and I have never known how to eat them…now I can buy them when I go to the grocery store, hehe. I LOVE your videos.

Thanks for posting the video! I'll be sure to pick up a pomegranate on my next trip to the grocery! :)

Thank you for being so thorough in your blogging – how-to videos, links for recipes, details. I really appreciate it. You are a great inspiration!

I’m glad you didn’t cut yourself! :)

Ha! If some one gave me a pomegranate I would have had no idea what to do with it. THANKS for the vid! Now I know!

One more thing…on your Dec 8th post, I saw you made “blueberry coffee”….what is this?! blueberry syrup? I’m so confused! Sounds interesting!

Oops, actually had a question for you–Do you think your husband would ever do a food blog? I think it tends to be a ‘female thing’ on the net, don’t you?

Do you know of any food-related blogs by men? Just curious =)

Thanks for posting the video… I’m a lefty too and sometimes it’s harder to learn how to do certain things!

I would love to do a food blog, but mine would be entirely about how to make food, with a healthy background to the whole thing. Unfortunately it would have to be more video-based, and I would need a cameraman who has the time to film!

Thank you, thank you to you all!!


I wish Nigella would do a video so I could fully understand that method. I'm not sure I get it!


The Blueberry Cobbler coffee is just a flavored kind I found at the grocery store by New England Coffee. You can see it in this post http://www.katheats.com/?p=226. It's REALLY good, especially mixed with french vanilla!


I don't know if the husband would do a blog of all of his meals, but he's definitely interested in doing something cooking. I'm not sure why it's mostly women doing the whole "here's what I ate thing." Maybe men just aren't organized enough!


I do half of the things in the world with my right hand – because it's easier (like cutting with scissors) but I still use knives with my left :(

Thanks for all of your wonderful words – I find you inspiring to put all the effort into the blog!

i found your blog through the eat like me blog and it is now one of my go to websites. the diversity of food you eat, the care you take in preparing, and your overall healthy living mindset is an inspiration. thank you for all your blogging hard work!

I think a men’s take on a food blog would be very interesting! Hey- it might inspire my boyfriend to cook more =) haha.

My first thought was that most men probably just don’t care enough about calories, nutrition, and weight issues to put the effort into this type of blog (of course that is my very stereotypical thought! hehe).

Regarding Nigella’s method of taking out the pomegranate seeds, that’s the way I was taught to do it by my grandmother. You slice off the top and bottom like you did in the video, and then quarter the pomegranate. Then, you move over to the sink (this gets a bit messy =)…), hold the quarter portion in your palm, cut side down, and take something like a meat mallet and hit the fruit on the skin side a few times. The seeds just kind of fall down in your hand and the bowl =) You might get some of the corky stuff in the bowl, which you can pick out later…
It takes less than 2 minutes to do it this way. Plus, it also preserves the juices in the bowl, which I love to spoon out while eating the seeds.
Hope this helps. Thanks for the fun video, by the way!!
