Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

Richard and I made some great blueberry muffins, then decided to use the same base recipe and make up our own flavors. We made milk chocolate chip, blackberry and semi-sweet chocolate chip, and raspberry and white chocolate chip.
