Change is good,  I know I am always saying this. As I have gotten older, I have really embraced this saying. Why? Because I had to accept change in my life.

So many things are different than what I thought or even what I was taught. I mean I am from Pittsburgh, I didn’t even know I was speaking another language until I moved to Cleveland.  I had to change how I say certain words.

Even though it may sound foreign to me to say a word a certain way. I had to adapt my speech. I had no choice if I wanted people to understand me.

Every day I feel change around me lately. Maybe because I am very close to having a dream and a life-changing event. I have hinted about on here. No, I still am not saying what it is, there were many things that have delayed it already, and I do not want to curse it anymore then it already has been.

Why all this dealing with change talk? In June, was my 10 year anniversary of moving to Cleveland. I can’t believe I been here this long. I know I have said this before, but I really do not belong here. I do not fit in. I stayed because my job and the friends I have met, If things do go as planned with my life event, then come this time next year, I will be moving back home to Pittsburgh, where I belong.

I know I have said this before, but I really do not belong here. I do not fit in. I stayed because my job and the friends I have met. If things do go as planned with my life event, then come this time next year, I will be moving back home to Pittsburgh, where I belong.

Change is never easy, and moving back home means starting over again. I have been with my job 10 years, so I am able to take my pension with me, which is good. I got to do this one step at a time, first let’s do the life-changing event, which with luck will happen in September. From there I can plan my move back home. I have a year to get all figured out.

Part the planning is, I know I will most likely find only part-time work in phlebotomy, it harder to find full-time off the bat. I have been a phlebotomist for 17 years, I just know this, I saw it both in Pittsburgh and here in Cleveland. I need full-time, so part the plan is to really revitalize and make Seduction all that can be. So can help supplement me when I am not making as much as I was when I was full-time. Or at least help until I can get full-time.

Yes, change is coming to Seduction. I, in all honesty, do not make much money on here in a month. I make enough for gas for my car let’s say. So first up is the template is getting design change which is in progress, there are flaws in this one that actually prevent me from earning and also it a bit heavy and just needs some new life breathed into it.

Plus, as you may have noticed in the last few posts I added a collage image. This is for Pinterest actually. I have been reading up on Pinterest for food bloggers and these collage photos do better on it as well as bigger photos. So I am doing this. Yes, change is good, and change is necessary so can go on and get what you truly desire.

As you also know, I am a contributor to Parade Magazine’s Community Table.  I have had slideshows on it, exclusive recipes, as well as some my older recipes, have been republished on it. You can see all that I have done on my profile page over on Community Table. I have 2 posts I want to do for them, which means I need to have a series going here on Seduction, in order to do the posts.

The First post is Gourmet Burgers. I have come up with 7 burgers, this one is #3 in the series. The first two:

Goat Cheese Stuff Burgers With Roasted Garlic Truffle Oil Mayonnaise is a French inspire gourmet burger that is full of flavor. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.

Canadian Poutine Burger is a burger with Canada influence! A mushroom and onion stuffed Angus burger with gravy, fries, and cheddar cheese. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.

and Canadian Poutine Burger.

Still to come is The Pittsburgh Pierogi Burger, The Philly Burger, The Californian Burger, and The NY Beer Braised Onion Burger. I have been putting previews of these burgers on Instagram, so some of you may have seen them.  They will be posted on here throughout this week.

Red wine goes so well with beef. I admit I have a wine obsession. After I made the red wine mushrooms for the Goat Cheese Stuff Burgers With Roasted Garlic Truffle Oil Mayonnaise, the idea came to me to make a The Red Wine Burger. The Red Wine glaze was wonderful on the Red Wine Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes, so why not.

And why not indeed, this The Red Wine Burger came out so good, all because of that red wine sauce. It is what makes this burger. Trust me you will love it!

    That burger does look quite tasty.. I don't think there's any way I could fit that into my current 1930 calorie per day budget though!

    I know your other post mentioned scheduling posts and whatnot. I can highly recommend HootSuite. Until I started getting down and dirty with scripting, I used HootSuite to schedule future posts. It also has some nifty analytics built in so you can see who's clicking and where they're doing it. I can't really offer any insight into the Pinterest thing, though I can understand its importance in your space.
