Food blogging is not easy. There is so much competition out there, you need to make yourself stand out. Some do it with amazing photos, others it is with a social media presence. Myself I have done it with talking in real time with what going on in my life. There are pros and cons of doing that. It probably has hurt my growth on a whole.
I know if I want Seduction in the Kitchen to grow, I need to do changes. One is posting more, so I am going to commit to at least 3 recipe posts a week. I can not post every day. I do not want to schedule a month’s worth of recipes in advance either.
I know many food bloggers do this, but you read the posts and they just sound very automatic. I don’t want that. I want this blog to have a life to it. I got to figure out a good rhythm for me to do at least 3 recipe posts a week.
I got many more changes coming for Seduction in the Kitchen. I can see them in my head, but not quite sure how it is going to translate into the blog. I don’t want to go too much into it now only because I’m still figuring out the best ways that these ideas will come to be.
So that is why I’m only talking about posting to social networks and how I write Seduction in the Kitchen. I am changing up my writing style. What people like is how I encourage, like change is good. My focus will be on that, encourage the readers to try something different. In other words less soap opera/ bitching, more upbeat encouraging words. So you will be seeing changes over the next few weeks for Seduction in the Kitchen.
Bistro Blue Cheese Stuffed Meatballs Recipe
I am a meatball lover. I love meatballs and making recipes with them. I know most the meatball recipes I have here on Seduction in the Kitchen have used frozen meatballs. Which they are good, but making from scratch can be so mouthwatering.
I came up with these Bistro Blue Cheese Stuffed Meatballs after going to this “bistro” type place with a friend. The meatballs were in this tangy sauce that really made the meatballs burst with flavor. The bistro just sprinkled on the blue cheese onto their meatballs.
My thought, why not put the blue cheese inside the meatballs? That way the meat can absorb the flavor of the cheese better and still compliment the sauce. The result, a good bistro meal at home.
