o I am a Libra, I like to change things up. Why? It is because we Libras are indecisive and we love to be creative.


Since I am tweaking up the design here on Seduction in the Kitchen, I felt I wanted to give new life to my logo. I felt if you name a blog with Seduction, it should have a sexy feel to it. I love that color blue, but red is sexy, don’t you agree?


Creativity is in my blood, so I am a little lucky that I can make my own logo. I went and found a cool font that I felt looked seducing. Played around with PicMonkey and VIOLA!

Change is good. I told you! The logo, not the only thing I did.


I changed up my sharing tools on here. I loved Email it, what I was using before. It was nice, I have no issues with it. If I want my engagement and SEO to improve, that is what I should use. So I switched it up.

Irish Potato Leek Soup

Samaan is actually a Syrian name. It was my ex-husband’s name. You can tell I am not Syrian.

I actually, German, Irish, and Polish. However, I am more Irish in me than anything. I mean I have auburn hair and green eyes, with fair skin. Yes, I scream “I AM IRISH.”


With the way these months and days seem to be flying by, St Patrick’s Day will be here soon. Irish food will be on everyone’s table that day. After all, everyone is Irish on March 17th.


I first tried a creamy potato leek soup at work. We used to have this small coffee shop next to the lab that would serve up a soup of the day. One day it was this Irish leek and potato soup.


The coffee shop’s irish potato and leek soup had dill in it and it was amazing. So guess who decided she needed to recreate the creamy potato leek soup? You guess right, me.


Cooking Tip:


fter working with garlic, rub your hands vigorously on your stainless steel sink for 30 seconds before washing them. It will remove the odor. – Source: FoodNetwork


Creamy Potato Leek Soup

I wanted to recreate the Irish potato soup recipe is because I wanted to embrace my Irish heritage. You have to be proud of where you came from. I am proud to be Irish as you can see.


I love heritage recipes. After all, how many Pittsburgh recipes do I have on here? There no doubt I am proud of being a native Pittsburgher.


No matter what, everyone should celebrate and be proud of their heritage. It is our different backgrounds and heritage that make us who we are. Shape us into where we are today. So enjoy a little of my heritage with this Irish potato and leek soup.

      I never froze it, but I had a few on Pinterest say they have. I did not hear complaints from them so I am assuming it did freeze well
