Take a risk
Sometimes you need to take risks in life. I learned this lesson from a very good friend of mine. Without a risk, you never know what you can accomplish.
Writing a blog, talking about things online, that is a risk. However, it is a risk I wanted to take. At one point you have to take a risk and not worry what other people think.
That is in a small way why I write this recipe blog. I woke up one day and say, I don’t care what people think I am just going to write this. And I am going to write it how I want.
Yes, I may get a little personal, but I am human. I want to inspire you. So, me talking about my triumphs and failures helps you in some way then that is part my goal for this blog.
What Others Think
I talk a lot about how change is good. One change that is good is realizing what others think isn’t important. That is hard to do I know.
Although I will admit the one area personally I care what others think of me is my weight, especially when it comes to guys. I think it is because I have had many men tell me I am perfect for them, personality wise. They do enjoy my company.
However, they have an issue with my weight. It has got to the point now I finally have come to terms I will never be a size 2. I will always have curves, but I do for the most part hate my size and it is due to this rejection I get from men.
So I started a project on Instagram called #pinkdivadiet. It helps me realize I have many people supporting me in my weight loss battle. I have gotten so many praises on it.
Yes, it a risk publishing photos of me losing weight. Yes, it might be embarrassing. Yes, it takes guts.
It is a risk I am willing to take. If I can help one other person like themselves and encourage them to make a healthy lifestyle change, then it is well worth this risk. You never know until you take the risk.

One of my very good friends, I mentioned him here a few times, Richard, my GBF, is a huge foodie. I will bounce ideas off him when comes to recipes. Like me, he is trying to lose weight himself.
Reinvent Recipe for Fried Pickles
We went out to chat and have some salads. I told him I love to try and reinvent the fried pickle. He said to me, “You can always do what I do, but a lot of work.”
He suggested the makings of the Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Fried Pickles. What he said to do was to take a whole pickle, hollow it out, stuff it with cream cheese. Then batter it, wrap in bacon, and deep fry it.
Yeah, that is a ton of work for a Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Fried Pickle! Another friend was over helping me with my apartment redecoration. I offered him something to eat and I bounced the idea of Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Fried Pickles to him as well.

I offered to make them and asked if he would tell me how they are. Why? I did not ruin this diet with Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Fried Pickles!
He said yes. The newly fried pickle I created was a hit with him. He asked if could make more and took to share with some friends. I got huge praises from his friends as well.
Bacon Wraps With Cream Cheese
So the Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Fried Pickles was born. I did my GBF’s idea of cream cheese in the pickle but I simplified it using stackers pickles instead of hollowing out a pickle. People thought they were pretty amazing. I was told I reinvented the fried pickle, just like I did with the BBQ Fried Mushrooms.
A new twist on fried pickles, stuff them with cream cheese and wrap them in bacon. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.
- 1 jar of dill pickles (stackers)
- 1 tub of onion and chive cream cheese
- 1 lb of bacon
- 5 tablespoons flour
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- First, you want drain the pickles out the jar, with a paper towel kind of dry them off. Try to get as much of the pickle juice off them. This will help keep the batter on the pickle. Then spread on some the cream cheese onto half the pickles. After the cream cheese is on them. Top them with the other half the pickles. Your making a pickle sandwich in a way. Much easier then hollowing out a pickle.
- Next, combine the flour, egg, and milk to make a batter. Coat the pickles as best as you can in the batter. If the pickles still very wet it will slide off like the above photo shows. But as long as a little bit on it, it will be ok, do not panic.
- Next it will get a bit messy your hands, but want wrap the bacon around the battered pickle sandwich. It takes about 2-3 slices of bacon to get them all nice and wrapped up. Place the bacon bundle pickles on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake them in a pre heated 350F degree oven. Yes I baked these. I just thought that would work better then frying them in hot oil. Plus. I didn’t feel like playing with hot grease. Bake them for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Keep checking on them, I like very crispy bacon, so why bake them as long as I did.
- Take out the oven, let cool and then ENJOY!
