  • New Logo

So 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 into 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 really cool font that I felt looked seducing. Played around on 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. However, I was strongly urged to switch to social warfare. Why? Because 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. 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 that being said, 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 Irish potato soup at work. We used to have this small coffee shop next to the lab that would serve up a soup the day. One day it was this Irish Potato soup. It had dill in it and it was simply amazing. So guess who decided she needed to recreate the soup? You guess right, me.

One the reasons I wanted to recreate the Irish Potato soup is because I wanted to embrace my heritage and have Irish recipes on Seduction in the Kitchen. You have to be proud of where you came from. I am as you can see. 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 soup.

    That sounds absolutely gorgeous! We eat a lot of tattie and leek soups on my island – I should jazz it up a bit like you have!

      Jazzing it up can be really fun! I would have never thought to add dill to potato soup when I did it just works 🙂

    Your new logo looks great! And the soup sounds perfect – – warm and comforting and hearty on a cold winter night.
