Pear Raisin Bread A recipe from Seduction in the KitchenI finally did it! I moved to WordPress! I can not believe I am at this point that I needed to move platforms. Both myself and Seduction in the Kitchen have grown so much in the year. To get to this point that I am, well my own brand, is amazing to me. I am now on a professional food blogger level.

Sure there is still many things need to be improved on here, like getting that DSLR camera I like to have. Which I hope to have one these days, that is when I can afford one. Till then it is just my trusty digital one I am using and just continue to improve my photography skills.

As I said I am still working on details on this new site, so if you have a suggestion on how to improve this site, please let me know. I always welcome change, as I have said many times change is good. So far I am happy with how this looks right now, but I also see that is has a huge potential to grow and develop.

I have been crazy with my day job as a phlebotomist. I am doing a special favor for work and I am working three days a week in Warren, Ohio. The good news about that is I am staying with my family in PA when I am there. Warren is close to PA, it very close in fact. So instead of seeing them once every three months, I get to see them right now on a weekly basis. Plus work is paying my mileage, so that is helping as well. The downside, I am messed up with life and living right now.

What do I mean by that? Well, I am in my car 3 hours a day, 3 days a week. It is a lot of time being in the car, in fact, my nice new apartment, I am not living it, I feel like I am living in my car. It is ok, it only until January I have to do this, plus the extra money is nice that I am getting, it helping me pay off the furniture I bought.

So in the travels between Cleveland, Warren, and PA. I am managing to make some recipes. Like this one, the pear raisin bread. I made it at my parent’s house when I was there one the times. I like apple, but pear I think sometimes gets overlooked in the Fall. Well, pumpkin does kind of overshadow everything, still, people forget that pear can make for a nice dessert and can be used in place of the apple. That was what I did with this recipe, I used pear instead of apple for a nice, light quick bread recipe.
