40 Down, 360 To Go

I was busy this weekend. I found out if I want to make Seduction in the Kitchen a success I need to optimize every recipe. I found this out right when I was in the middle of the SEO I been working on. So yes I have to start all over again for the 10th time on the recipes.

So with this new design, there are some elements of it I do need to add by hand to every post. So looking on the bright side, I have to go into each recipe anyway. What is my plan for all of this?

The Plan

So since I have to hand add elements. Plus I need to optimize, what is my plan? Any dream doesn’t come easy and it requires work. So these little obstacles are just bumps in my road to the bigger picture.

What is the plan to get around these bumps? Well here it is:

  1. Get an SEO Audit: The new recipe card I am using, Simple Recipe Pro offers a few SEO Audit. So After talking with them I am going to have it done. So I am not starting over again for the 100th time.
  2. Work on the posts one category at a time: The best way to tackle over 400 recipes is to do this by category. It the easiest thing to do.
  3. Create Pinterest Boards by categories: Since I need to optimize the posts anyway. That includes making a pinnable image, why not add boards that break down my recipes?
  4. Utilize the Shopping List feature on the site: There are posts I really want make over, but with over 400 posts, I forget which ones really need TLC. So I am using that new shopping list to help me keep track which ones, I want to do a makeover on! It really a nice feature and glad I installed it!

So that is my plan. I actually got the Appetizers fully done. In fact, here is the Pinterest board I created that has the appetizer recipes on it. It is called Amazing Appetizers.

So what was my inspiration behind this Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Sheppard Pie? Honestly, it was Sheppard’s pie and cheeseburger pie. I was looking at a recipe for both when I realized they could be combined in a slow cooker.

I love my slow cooker. I love making recipes in it. In fact, I think the slow cooker category is the largest one I have on Seduction in the Kitchen.

Why? Because I am a very busy person. I work full time as a phlebotomist and I also run this blog. So I love putting stuff into a slow cooker and forgetting about it. The slow cooker is a busy woman’s dream come true!

Some of my favorite slow cooker recipes I have put up on Seduction in the kitchen are:

Buttery Slow Cooker Cabbage, Pierogies, and Kielbasa are a buttery, sweet cabbage combined with pierogies and kielbasa in a slow cooker.

Slow Cooker French Onion Meatloaf is an easy meatloaf to make and is full of flavor that it will be your new favorite meatloaf.

So I have also been wanting to create a Sheppard Pie in the slow cooker for a long time. In fact was trying for a while to make one with frozen meatballs. Don’t ask, it is a disaster every time I try it.

So instead I decided that the marriage between cheeseburger pie and Sheppard’s pie would be a great way to create this Bacon Cheeseburger Sheppard Pie. Making some changes to both recipes so can adapt in a slow cooker, I made this yummy dish. The verdict, it was fantastic!

    I wouldn’t have thought you could do that in the crock pot. Good thinking!
