  • Blog Posts Overhaul

Well, I have been busy the last few days. I have been overhauling all the posts. Why?  Well, I discovered on some the old posts the markup, or Schema is all wrong. Truth be told I had someone do an audit on my website, and this is the suggestion given to me to do.

So why is this a big deal? It can hurt me on Google if I don’t fix it. Plus in this process, I also discovered I need to add missing info on the recipes as well. That means I am adding cook time and calorie counts to the recipes.

With that being said you will notice something new in the comment section of the posts too. There is a recipe rating. You can rate my recipes with your comments. I am asking if you rate what you think of the recipes as you comment.

Why? Well, it helps me in several ways. It lets me know what you think of the recipe. So I can give you more of what you like. Also, it helps me with Google. You see, it this Schema markup, google likes ratings apparently.

Now, you can see how the ratings look on

You will see that there is one rating for that recipe and that rating is displayed on the recipe card. I wish you could just rate it without commenting, but that isn’t available as far as I know.

One thing you might see, out of 400 recipes there is a few that is missing. It has to do with the blog post-overhaul. At one point, well the very beginning of when I started blogging, I did it all by hand.

Yes, I would just write a recipe. There was no recipe card I used. Well, those older posts that have no recipe card, I unpublished it and I put back into draft.

I got to do that so I can do the recipe properly onto the recipe card. Plus, I discovered broken links, old coding for ads that are defunct, and lots of mistakes. They really need to be fixed. Another thing too, there is a few I really like to redo photos for them. So putting them into draft will help me with that as well.

I noticed over the last few days of doing the blog post-overhaul. Those older recipes I added SEO to plus filled in the missing info on the recipe cards on them. The stats for Seduction are really climbing. So this is a good thing and will be worth all the work I have to do on all the recipes.

  • Smoked Gouda and Bacon Potato Pancakes

I remember growing up eating potato pancakes. We didn’t have them all the time but at the church fair, we would get these yummy, greasy pancakes, slathered with apple sauce and sour cream. Oh, they were so good.

Yes, I love potato pancakes. I have been wanting to create an easy potato pancake recipe for a long time. Being who I am, I have to take the potato pancake to the next level taste wise.

The answer is simple for that. That answer is adding cheese. I loved the smokiness of smoked gouda. Of course, who can resist bacon? I also added some diced red and green pepper. Why? Well honestly I had some that needed to be used up and it actually made these potato pancakes really pop with flavor.

    These potato pancakes look great – true winter comfort food! I might swap out the bacon if I make these for the holidays, but I love how crunchy and savory these sound.
