Oktoberfest Beer Sweet Potato Fries

 Changes, changes, I am always saying change is good. I admit I have habits I really need to break, especially with Seduction in the Kitchen. I want to build a bigger audience. I feel my site just isn’t growing. It one those things that are frustrating when comes to blogging. Blogging would be so simple if it was just written than publish a post and that be it. Trust me it would make my life so much better, but it doesn’t work that way in blogging, unfortunately. There is a ton of stuff you need to do for the post after you hit publish. One of which is you need to share the heck out of a post, which I am not good at doing. Most the reason why is because my day job keeps me very busy.

I have a plan, hopefully, I can stick to it. I know part my problem is I make a plan, then quickly just give up. It is my bad habit I need to break. My plan is as soon as I publish, I have this list I created on my computer where I am submitting my post too. I am not talking just food porn sites. I did stop submitting to those sites because I get rejected and it is frustrating. It makes you feel like your hard work is just is not worth the time. I know many food bloggers get frustrated with this too. I see them bitching about it in forums and in groups on Facebook. I know I need improvement in photography, I been improving on it. You look at how I am doing photos now compared to how I did them when I first started Seduction in the Kitchen, you see the improvement.

This list I compiled is a few food porn but also recipe submission sites that will work off my feed like Epicurious. Yes, I am going to be a publisher on Epicurious! You can see my profile here http://community.epicurious.com/user/deanna-samaan. So we will see if I can break these old habits of not submitting and build this audience!

I admit I am not a beer drinker. I do drink hard cider, so that is the closest it comes for me to have a beer. So when I have a beer recipe idea, I ask my friends, especially male friends, if they think this would work with beer. I know they all go gaga when Oktoberfest beer comes out, and I know the flavors in it is spices and pumpkin for the most part. I had this idea about soaking a potato in the beer to make

I had this idea about soaking a potato in the beer to make beer flavored fries. The more I talked to my friends about it, they thought was a good idea, but admit it needed more. Then it came to me why not use a sweet potato in an Oktoberfest beer. Suddenly my friends were like, YES, DO IT!

Now with sweet you need the spice, I needed something that would compliment these fries. I saw this balsamic vinegar that was infused with honey. I thought, what about adding that to ketchup with some pumpkin pie spice, it worked. It complimented these fries so very nicely.
