  • Phlebotomist

I’m a phlebotomist by day. I have been one for 18 years and my specialty is hard sticks. I can get those really tiny veins with one poke with little discomfort. I got sensitive fingertips that I can feel veins when others can’t, it is a gift I have.

So, sometimes because I am in demand a lot, I feel I live in my scrubs. Its part of working in medical, your laundry is 90% scrubs and 10% other clothes. Trust me scrubs are not as flattering like the scrubs that are worn on Grey’s Anatomy.

If I had someone Taylor a scrub set for my body, of course, they would flatter my figure. We don’t have that in real life. We get unisex scrubs that can be reversible if needed. If only real life was like Grey’s Anatomy.

  • Changes

Why bring this up? Sometimes what you see isn’t always what really is. I know sounds like a fortune cookie, what’s my point. I am all about change but I admit I think a bit of pack rat that I keep things too long, especially with Seduction in the Kitchen. I’m working on improving it, I took huge steps today with my social media accounts.

You may or may not have noticed but most my accounts: Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram all had LovelyPinkDiva as the handle. Lovely Pink Diva was a blog I had that was for women. It was this concept I had to help women remember they are a woman not just a mom, career women, etc.

It did decently but my heart wasn’t really in it. So it was disbanded. I still had the social media accounts for it. So I used those accounts for Seduction in the Kitchen because had a following and I was sentimental and liked the name. Now I feel it confuses people.

Today the LovelyPinkDiva in the handles is gone and after a lot talk and debate because I can’t fit the entire Seduction in the Kitchen as a handle it was decided:

  • Twitter: @SeductionRecipe
  • Instagram: seductionrecipes
  • Pinterest: SeductionRecipe

It is a positive change to do that and get rid the pack rat way of keeping the old stuff. Plus it good to do a little cleaning up is it not?

So getting back to the fortune cookie saying I said earlier. What you see isn’t always what it is, means you saw the name of one old blog as a handle but it wasn’t that blog it was the new one.

  • Balsamic Couscous Salad Video

As promised, I did another recipe video! I got it up on my YouTube Channel and I also have it on here. I talked to my good friend, who I know you will love, into doing quick kitchen tip videos with me. I love to really build up the YouTube Channel.  So I am thinking what I am going to do is have these kitchen tips videos on The YouTube Channel and maybe I have like Recipe Tip of the Week on here.

When I went to Texas de Brazil, which you can see a video of on my YouTube Channel, it is one the places to dine at in Cleveland. Anyway, I was there and they have this salad bar that has like 60 items on the menu, including a couscous salad, that I loved. I wanted to do it a little different. I have this hemp seed oil that was sent to me from Just Hemp Foods I really wanted to use it to make a salad, plus I am loving white balsamic vinegar, I thought these two ingredients would be good on a couscous salad.
