Speaking of winners...
My 12 year old son has been experimenting with recipes. In our house the challenge is to make food as yummy as possible while still trying to keep it on the healthy side. He successfully made whole grain, sugar free cream puffs using agave as the sweetener and whole white wheat flour. (We grind it ourselves and I prefer the white to the red wheat--it is lighter in flavor and body).
The dusting on top is powdered fructose (with a little corn starch added) we ground up in my awesome Blendtec blender. The chocolate on top is made of grain sweetened chocolate chips melted with a little cream. Not gonna lie-- it was a delicious success and even my junk foodie friends liked them! (=
It is important to have food like this on hand sometimes. Like right now when I'm getting a mountain of corrections from my very talented and insightful editor...who will stop at nothing to help me get my get book into tip top shape.
It can really be discouraging to see all of the things that need work. And if I didn't LOVE writing and if I didn't believe in my characters and story I might just question--What was I thinking? What made me think I could write at all?
At this point it is just work...but I have to see it through. Not finishing and giving my story the attention it deserves is not an option. Too much invested now. So pass the cream puffs...I'm goin' in.
