Lots of updates for you, first you noticed I been tinkering with the design. I am trying to give the posts a wine label look to them. I like looking elegant, yet sexy look to it.
Next, I have in a way resurrected one the very first blogs I have ever done, The Recipes Of Disney. This was a pet project from a while ago. I admit I love Disney and I love their food! So why was started, it was just a way for me to keep track of Disney recipes. Well I have not post on since 2011. Something interesting happened, somehow it was showcased on Bloglovin and a HUGE surge of people started following it. My email was bursting with 80 new followers over 2 days. So ok, I decided lets start it back up. I dusted a few things off it, still needs a bit of tinkering. Added a few new recipes I found and brought it back.
The last update I like to tell you is actually just a funny story about the last recipe I posted, the Mediterranean Lemon Shrimp and Spinach. I am on Facebook, and I post my recipes in several groups. It what most bloggers do. One recipe page on Facebook, actually featured the Bacon Pancakes. Which I was very honored to have, the same day I posted the shrimp recipe. I post in one group fine the link to the shrimp recipe. Go to my next group to post and I get a pop up from Facebook, that the link I am submitting “has been reported as an offensive and abusive material.” What??? A shrimp recipe? So I just do the main url of Seduction in the Kitchen, not the url to the post. I get the pop up again. So I try another group, same thing. Long story short, some marked my site as porn! I know it is food porn, but is not the porn they felt my blog was. So I had to write an appeal to explain why it isn’t offensive and abusive. It just really funny, one person I was talking to on Facebook said when I told them about I cant post my link, “What did the shrimp do, get a vegetarian mad?? How is a shrimp recipe abusive?” It goes to show one thing, one it makes for a great story and two, people don’t really pay attention to things and some people really need a life instead trying to be a watchdog all the time.
Ok I will not know till today if I can post links on Facebook, so we will see. I did something different with this recipe today, instead using my iPhone like I normally do. I used my regular camera. I am trying to get a photo on Food photo submission sites. First they said it was lighting issues. So I stopped using one app. Now it composition, it too tight or awkward angle or styling. so I am trying something different. One these days I going to get the right photo for them, I am determined!
Anyway, I made fresh baguette bread, which will be another post on another day, got those photos in a folder. I have an avocado that I need to use asap. I love bruschetta, how can I make it incorporating avocado? I saw a recipe about a avocado salad, that used feta. I used that as my inspiration and came up with something really wonderful. It a great change of pace from regular bruschetta.
A twist on bruschetta using avocados. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.
- baguette bread
- olive oil
- 2/3 cup feta cheese
- 2 small red tomatoes chopped
- 4 green onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic finely minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 avocados peeled, pitted and diced
- First thing to do is make your toasted bread slices for the bruschetta. Slice the bread into thin slices. Than place them on an oiled cookie sheet. and brush the side facing up with some olive oil. Heat up your oven at 350 and place them in the oven for 8 minutes, till they look lightly toasted.
- While the bread is toasting, add everything else into a bowl and give it a good stir. Take the bread out the oven, and let the slices cool slightly.
- Finally place little scoop onto each of the little bread slices and enjoy this great little treat!
