Hello daydreamers! I’m Susanna. And I’m the wife of a newbie resident doctor and mom to a passionate, expressive little girl. Wet-behind-the-ears blogger and photographer. Lover of good books, the sagging-in-the-middle part of the sofa, my bed, King Arthur flour, and Saturday-morning farmer’s markets. My life is completely different from what I had planned. And while it’s taken me several years to get to this point, I like to celebrate those differences, take on the challenges of change, and live in the reality of today. {Re}visionary Life is my space to rehearse the every-day and revel in the goodness of what God has destined me for.

I’m so excited to begin contributing my love of food and photography on Pencilled Daydream. Thank you so much for having me Ashley!

The quick, lovely little recipe I’m sharing with you today was put together by a talented photographer and clean-eating advocate that I just know you will love if you take a second to go meet her. Meghan at Eat Live Make fixed these up one day, and I haven’t been able to get my mind off of them since. I mean, pomegranates, dark chocolate, and sea salt . . . what’s not to love??


Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Cups

{yields ~12 mini cups}



1 pomegranate, seeded

6-8 oz dark chocolate, melted

sea salt



Prep. Remove the arils {seeds} from your pomegranate. {No mess method demonstrated HERE.} Set up a double boiler or heat proof bowl atop a small sauce pan filled shallowly with water. Slowly bring the water to boil. Line a mini muffin pan with cupcake liners or aluminum foil.

Melt. Add your chocolate to the double boiler or bowl, making sure to reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir with rubber spatula until melted, being careful not to overheat.

Assemble. Stir a handful of pomegranate arils in with your chocolate to your preference. Spoon into cupcake liners and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Let harden in the fridge for 30 minutes or so, and try to keep from eating them all at once!


I just love the bite size perfection of the mini version, but don’t be afraid to think bigger if you want to go for a regular size muffin tin! These little cups would make a great accompaniment to the Thanksgiving celebrations don’t you think? And with all the prep involved with that day, it’s nice to have a little something sweet that takes such little effort.

Happy Thanksgiving!
