Sentence 1

"It was as stunning as the first time she'd seen it, she realized." -From Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts

Roberts uses an absolute phrase to describe what the character realized, which in effect takes us to two time periods. The present where she realizes, and the past her first encounter.

My example:  The steak was as tender as the first time she cooked it, she tasted.
