Apple Pie Cookies is simply apple pie in a cookie, could you ask for anything more? A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.
This is a very special post, it is my 300th post! I did not even realize I was up to 300 until a few days ago. I was in the process of looking at statistics for Seduction in the Kitchen for a media kit update and I saw the 299 number for posts.
I’m amazed that I have come to this milestone. This blog started off as a way to impress a guy named Ari, I had just started dating him when I screwed up my foot and was in a cast. I thought I get back into blogging to help keep me entertained since I was on bed rest for 2 months and could show him, yes I know how to cook. The relationship didn’t last, but admit he did recently contact me. It was nice chatting with him, I told him, I owe all my success with Seduction in the Kitchen to him. A joke we have is if I ever come famous, he get a percentage of what I earn since he inspired the blog. That first attempt to impress Ari, turned into a pure passion for me, and now 300 posts later, it is amazing.
When I look back at that first post, Garlic Herb Syrian Bread and then at this post, I can not believe how far I have come when comes to photography. I also see how far I have grown as not only a blogger, but in my own life as well. I recently was sent this eBook from a top food blogger that was an interview with 30 other top bloggers and what their #1 goals are for the new year in blogging, what most them said was something I have been doing on Seduction, relate to the audience, be real in the posts.
I write in real-time, I don’t write posts months and weeks in advance, like some. I write with what is going on around me and relate to food. I put “me” into these posts. I do listen to you guys, especially when comes to my Parade posts. I do well on Parade because I hear what you want to see. So ok everyone is doing pumpkin recipes right now, but I heard from you what you want is chili recipes, I heard you wanted meatloaf recipes, I heard you want pulled pork recipes. So no I did want to do the 200th posting of a collection of pumpkin recipes, instead, I listen to you and do that for collections on Parade. So I realized, after reading this eBook, on what these top food bloggers what to work on, I ahead of the curve, because I already do that.
I have always have said this, I have always been grateful for all my fans that enjoy my recipes, like Seduction in the Kitchen, and enjoy my babbling. If it wasn’t for you, there would not be a 300th post, there would not be a Seduction in the Kitchen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything, you are what makes this blog a success.
To celebrate this milestone, you need something sweet. These cookies are sweet and perfect. I love apple pie. I usually go apple picking, but this year I didn’t, only because the weather was not good to do that this year. Not to worry, the stores have my honey crisp apples and they work for a good ole apple pie. However, I live by myself, I really don’t want to make a whole apple pie. I know I can use the leftovers to make my Pie Muffins. A cookie just sounds better for a single gal, plus the leftovers transports nicely to work for them to devour.
