Recipes: Did you know?

 


Did you know that each of my fiction books end with recipes from the book? Yes, all of my books have a cooking or baking thread running through them.

For example: In Autumn's Wish, Cindy makes amazing peanut butter cookies! So, I added that recipe, among others at the end of the book.

 

Cindy’s Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

¾ cup peanut butter

 

 Cindy also shares her Sausage, Peppers, and Onions recipe! 


Cindy’s Sausage, Peppers and Onions


1 package of Italian sausages

1 green bell pepper

1 large onion


Chances are, if the recipe was worth mentioning in the book, it is shared with you at the end!

How Not To Die: Book review

 


 I gave this book 5 stars! 

It is loaded with valuable information and is written in a way to keep you connected. The author's personality shines through in the writing.

I have been following his plant-based plan for five weeks, and feel great! I lost weight without trying and the inflammation in my body has decreased significantly. I am still striving to hit all twelve points each day, but I know that when I get there, I will feel even better!

So many of us feel like crap and try different medications to help us feel better. I am more of a natural type person, so this style of healing (or masking) does not appeal to me. 

I highly recommend eating a plant-based diet and living a healthy way of life. You are worth it!

Writers: Let's get rid of the word very

 

 
The word, “very” rarely belongs in the vocabulary of a writer. There are other creative words that can be used in its place.

The word, “very” is an overused adjective. The word is used to emphasize the word it is describing. Often times, adjectives, such as the word, “very”, can be left out of the sentence. If you are trying to say that someone is “very hungry”, take out the word “very” and your point will still come across to the reader. 
Or, substitute the word “very” and the word it is describing with another creative word (See, I could have said “more” creative word right there, but I left out the word “more” and my point still came across properly).


Let’s take a look at some substitutions:


1.Very angry / fuming

2. Very big / gigantic or huge

3. Very clean / spotless, immaculate or spick and span

4. Very cold / freezing or Very cold / icy or hard hearted

5. Very fast / immediate

6. Very fat / large

7. Very good / suitable

8. Very happy / joyful, delighted or ecstatic

9. Very hateful / repulsive

10. Very hot / broiling

11. Very hungry / famished

12. Very loving / affectionate

13. Very mean / nasty or cruel

14. Very nice / lovely

15. Very old / ancient or antiquated

16. Very pretty / beautiful or attractive

17. Very poor / underprivileged

18. Very quiet / silent or peaceful

19. Very rude / offensive

20. Very sad / miserable

21. Very silly / ridiculous

22. Very skinny / lean or malnourished

23. Very small / miniature

24. Very smart / clever

25. Very soft / spineless

26. Very sore/ excruciating, tender or painful

27. Very strong / muscular

28. Very stupid / senseless

29. Very tasty / scrumptious

30. Very tired / exhausted

31. Very ugly / horrid
