Changing of Times
You know I have been trying to clean up the SEO on Seduction in the Kitchen. I put SEO on the backburner so I can work on my recipe cards. I discovered many errors and the Google Search Console told me that there are 350 cards that are missing info.
It is because when I switched cards at one time the recipes got jumbled. Most the cards are easy fixes and take less than 30 seconds to fix. Others it has a little more, but no more than 1 minute to do the fixes.
What is funny is as I go through the cards on the posts, as I see how I have changed. Just the little things like how I wrote recipes originally to just life events that have happened. Then there is the, what in the hell was I thinking moments I come across as well. Times changed and so did I.
Syrian Zucchini Bake
This recipe Syrian Zucchini Bake is a weird way special to me. Why in a weird way? Well, as you know The ex-husband was from Syria.
Now wait before you go, why would you have a special recipe for an ass that was abusive? It isn’t what you think. It special because it was the first ethnic recipe I ever tried to make.
Here is a little background on this Syrian Zucchini Bake. When I was first married, I wanted to be a good wife and make her husband feel at home. Plus as you know I like learning new things.
So I thought, I like to learn some Syrian recipes. So I researched some, I came across this zucchini dish. It sounded amazing.
Well needless to say the ex would not even try the dish. Instead, I was told I lacked self-confidence in myself if I wanted to make food from his country. Yes, you read that right, he felt if I wanted to learn dishes from his country then I must be lacking in self-confidence.
So I had to eat the entire pan myself. Which was a good thing because I discovered a dish I really did like. There is just something wonderful about the combo of cheese, eggs, zucchini, and onions that give this Syrian Zucchini Bake a wonderful savory taste.
I still enjoy learning recipes from different cultures. Look at:
It is good to expand your cultural tastebuds I feel. If I should marry again, and my husband is from another country, I hope he will appreciate that I like to learn foods from his country. I want him to feel like he is at home.
