The Stages


his morning I got up early and was shooting some photos for a recipe I am working on with my new light and a new tripod when a thought came to me. I have gone through stages of improving myself. It is funny how that happens.

Food Photography

For the longest time on Seduction in the Kitchen, it was all about improving my photography. Don’t get me wrong, I am still am wanting to improve the photography.


In fact, I am considering writing a post about food photography on a budget. Because after all I am always on a budget. I have learned some tricks and hints of what can do when cant afford a $200 tripod.

Investing in my blog

That is another conversation for another time, the $200 tripod. Food photography, well food blogging, in general, is quite an investment. Right now, my investment is in this SEO thing and less in the photography area because I am at a comfortable spot with photos for right now.


It is time to start making my investment pay off for me. Which is why I now need to do this cleanup and SEO. Time to do the business stage of food blogging. As I am always saying on Seduction in the Kitchen, change is good.

Valentine Red Velvet Cake Mix Blossoms secret to how easy they are is cake mix.

I will not lie, I could make red velvet cake from scratch, but truthfully, I rather just use a cake mix. Why? I don’t know what it is, but I have no patience for making red velvet from scratch for some reason.


Cooking Tip:


hen baking drop cookies, especially if you like chewy ones, leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes after you take the pan out of the oven. This gives the cookies a chance to firm up a bit before you slide a spatula underneath them. After 5 minutes, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling.  – Source: King Authur Flour


Thank heavens you can buy it in the mix. Which is perfect to incorporate it into cake mix cookies, the easiest cookies to make. Trust me it is!

Using Valentine Red Velvet Cake Mix to make these cookies, really does help for when you are on a budget. But how do I make this valentine’s day cookie stand out from other cookies? Crinkle cookies are one way, but what about a thumbprint type?


Being a typical Libra that can never decide on things, I decided to do both the crinkle and thumbprint. To make them say HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, I decided using a chocolate heart instead of the kisses just said, I love you so much better.


Turned out doing combining the crinkle cookie with a thumbprint/ blossom cookie was a great idea. These cake mix cookies are amazing.I balanced the sweet by using dark chocolate hearts. Plus they are easy to make, yes they are perfect Valentine’s treat to make.
