  • Feeling Sick

Pomegranate Lemon Honey Hot Toddy

I have been battling a really bad virus. I went home sick and I been basically in bed since then. So I have been living on broth and soup. I hate being sick. Trust me, I will be glad when the cold and flu season is over. I think I am at more of a risk because I am drawing blood on all these sick people. Trust me only 1/3 of people actually cover their mouths when they cough and sneeze.

I did make a nice Hot Toddy, a Pomegranate Lemon Honey Hot Toddy. It really helps with congestion. Plus just makes you feel better. I actually have the recipe published. Where? On my YouTube channel. This one those recipes I am only publishing on that channel. So sign up to subscribe to it so you can see those recipes.

  • AMP Pages

Well, I have made Seduction in the Kitchen AMP. What does that mean? Well, it this new thing with Google for faster loading mobile pages. For a change, I am one the first to make this changeover. Usually, I am one the last to make for most changes.

Like most things in the beginning stages, there are a few hiccups. One is I can’t seem to get the AMP pages to show the videos. Another is the style is pretty basic, not customized. It is being worked on. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

This Bacon Mac n Cheese Soup the first to have it. So we will see if this new collage pin does better on Pinterest than just a long pin that I have been doing.

  • Bacon Mac n Cheese Soup

There is a place to eat here in the Cleveland area called Zoup! Every day they have about 6-8 soups. The soups change every day there. They are really good. One of my favorites there is a mac n cheese soup. It is like traditional mac n cheese but in soup form.

I gave my recipe that I had to a friend. The hardest part of it is that the soup is remembering it is a soup. So it should not be real thick like mac n cheese. My friend kept forgetting that.

Actually, it was he who added the bacon to the soup. Which I think makes it even better. It is that smokey taste of bacon that brings out the cheese flavoring if you ask me.

    I could see myself being one of those people forgetting that it’s supposed to be soup and not mac and cheese! But anything that makes it possible to have my favorite comfort food in different forms is alright by me! Hope you got over your cold!
