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. :)
