Share

There is just something fun about eating festive colored food around a holiday.  What kid doesn’t love drinking green milk?  Or green pancakes for St. Patrick’s day?  If you can make the colored food naturally colored using whole foods and add some nutrition in there then win, win win!  Right?  These shamrock dippers are super simple to make and they are crispy and delicious.  A perfect snack for your little leprechauns!  See the recipe below to make the Pot O’ Gold Cheese sauce.

You will need spinach tortillas, a shamrock shape cookie cutter, and a little bit of oil.  Cut your shapes out of the tortilla.  Depending on your cutter, you might have to push firmly and wiggle it around a bit to get it to go through. You can use the extra part of the tortilla also (those parts can be for the adults :) ) Then brush with a little oil.  Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 8 minutes at 375 degrees F until crispy.  That is it!  Dip them in your cheese sauce, or you could also use hummus, or salsa.

No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
