Recipe for Ice

Chloe as Pippi Longstocking
My four year old daughter gave me the cutest recipe on how to *cook* ice yesterday while I was canning/preserving some black beans in my pressure cooker.  For those of you who follow me on facebook, then you may have stumbled across my many cooking/food/recipe posts.  I love the kitchen. I find cooking a science.  It's chemistry.  I love the way adding one little spice can completely change the flavor and experience of the dish.

So I experiment a lot.  :)  Especially when I find something I've missed.  Or read a recipe that uses an ingredient I'd never considered before.  I soon as I'm able, I cook that same entree the way I always have, then add the new ingredient, and watch it come alive.

I find this when I read books as well... I'll read something and if it strikes me as brilliant, the way a phrase is used or a sentence is structured, or the way dialogue is written, I implement it.  Immediately.  I love learning new ways to enhance my writing and helping my books reach another level.

I still have a lot to learn.  A whole lot.
Which is why I've posted this recipe from my daughter.  I figure this is something you all may find useful.  lol!
I LOVE it!  If I ever write a cookbook, this recipe will definitely go in it--

How to Cook Ice:

4 yr old: Mom! Look! I learned-ed how to cook ice! I did! I did! Watch, Mom! Are you watched-ing? Are you? O-Tay. See? See this? I put-ed the water into the ice thingy thing and then--look! Look! Tada! You puted-ed it in the fa-widge like this. See? By da milk, the milk makes it sooo colder, mom. Den you shut the fa-widge and dance for a long, longer time, singing some songs, den when you are done you have ice!!

See what I mean?  I think I know why my ice has been taking so long to cook, I've forgotten to sing and dance.  :)
