Wednesday, September 30, 2020  Since I’ve been reblogging the other stops of the launch tour for “Hullaba Lulu, a Dieselpunk Adventure,” I didn’t want to leave out Olga Núñez Miret and the marvelous introduction she did at her blog.  The trouble was, WordPress.org (her platform) and WordPress.com (this one) don’t seem to get along very well.  … More Hullaba Launch!

Back to a Pug in the Kitchen — Granny Phanny & the Giant Rabbit

Update I finally got around to making Suzanne’s “Creamy Spring Turnip Soup.”  I know anything from A Pug in the Kitchen is going to be delicious, but I confess to being lukewarm about turnips.  I say that for the non-turnip lovers in the crowd.  I always take shortcuts in cooking, so I know my versions … More Back to a Pug in the Kitchen — Granny Phanny & the Giant Rabbit

Three Ingredients II – 18: Conclusion – Sweet Potato, Wimberries, Worcestershire Sauce

Welcome back everyone! Our previous chapter of this interactive culinary mystery was essentially part-1 of a 2-part finale.

Three Ingredients II – 17: Spinach, Carrots, Yogurt

Horsefeathers! This took me by surprise.

Three Ingredients II – 14: Chickpeas, Curry, Coconut Milk

Pete & Repeat Two chickpeas, Pete and Repeat were in a pod-boat. Pete fell overboard. What was left? “Repeat!” you say?  Well, alright then… Pete and Repeat were in a boat— Okay, I’m just being silly. I would have done something with “Lather, rinse and repeat” but I couldn’t come up with anything.  It took … More Three Ingredients II – 14: Chickpeas, Curry, Coconut Milk

Three Ingredients II – 13: Chickpeas, Winkles, Rice Pudding

One of the ingredients for Episode-11, red currants, caused me to add a merman to our serial.  Later I had the thought that Andrea Stephenson might like that character. You see, she has written about mythical water beings like selkies. So I am very pleased to tell you that the ingredients for this episode are from the marvelous magical … More Three Ingredients II – 13: Chickpeas, Winkles, Rice Pudding

Three Ingredients: Granny Is Angry, What Would You Do?

Granny Fanny was so angry, frustrated, and worried about Pip that she couldn’t take any more.  Granny says she’s sending our flapper home to her father! You know… I just realized that last weekend I forgot to add a “ghostly ingredient” from the Jar of Spooky Things.  But that’s beside the point.  I had an … More Three Ingredients: Granny Is Angry, What Would You Do?

Three Ingredients II – 12: Lentils, Cumin, Roast Lamb

Sanctuary The first time I remember hearing the word I was a small child watching a very old black and white film of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and it had a lasting effect on me.  Not just the movie, but the word — sanctuary, the sound of it, the meaning and the concept.  Sanctuary … More Three Ingredients II – 12: Lentils, Cumin, Roast Lamb

Three Ingredients II – 11: Red Currants, Baked Beans, Polish Sausage

Am I in an odd “place” or is it just the weather? The moon? Solar flares maybe? Could it be this week’s ghostly ingredient from the Jar of Spooky Things? I can’t define it — this odd mood, so I may as well just roll with it.  However, be warned that it might make this episode of … More Three Ingredients II – 11: Red Currants, Baked Beans, Polish Sausage

Three Ingredients II – 10: Strawberries, Avocados, Lobster

Thanks for coming back to another episode of our interactive culinary mystery serial.  The “ingredients” all of you send help make sure the story includes a multiplicity of ideas.  However, the cupboards are bare again.  Everyone is welcome to leave three food-related things in the comments. That’s what drives this pantser story — your varied ingredients. Variety … More Three Ingredients II – 10: Strawberries, Avocados, Lobster

Three Ingredients II – 9: Chanterelle Mushrooms, Gin, Trifle

Hello everyone — I’m so glad to see you again! At the end of Episode-7 Andy’s fate was unknown. Whether by design or by accident, the ghost-riders had taken him away. Then last weekend Maestro Martino sacrificed something important to him, without knowing whether or not it would return Pip’s friend. However, that segment ended … More Three Ingredients II – 9: Chanterelle Mushrooms, Gin, Trifle

Three Ingredients II – 8: Lettuce, Shrimp, Hot Peppers

The other day I sent Pip to give everyone a “heads-up” that I wasn’t sure I could do this weekend’s episode… due to the unfortunate combination of my clumsiness and lots of stairs inside and particularly (the culprits in my misadventure) outside my home… The story nagged at me though, so I’ll try to provide … More Three Ingredients II – 8: Lettuce, Shrimp, Hot Peppers

Three Ingredients II – 7: Baby Bok Choy, Barbecue Sauce, Aluminum Foil

Isn’t it just the berries when with no planning at all, things just come together? Everything about our 1920’s serial is unplanned “panster” fun — even the timing of when you all send ingredients.  So I was tickled when I learned that the next set of ingredients coincided with something important for the reader who is featured … More Three Ingredients II – 7: Baby Bok Choy, Barbecue Sauce, Aluminum Foil

Three Ingredients II – 6: Turnips, Onions, Sauerkraut

Welcome back everyone! I’m pleased to tell you that today’s ingredients were sent by a reader who hasn’t always been with us here at Teagan’s Books — Jo Robinson.

You’re Driving — Three Ingredients

Get behind the wheel! This isn’t a driverless car. Remember the Three Ingredients Serial is driven by you sending me “ingredients” (preferably three food-related things) to include in the story.  There’s no telling what road the story will take, until you send the “ingredients” that point the direction. So get your mental wheels turning.  Loosen up and let your thoughts flow wherever they may.  … More You’re Driving — Three Ingredients

Three Ingredients II – 3: Aspic, Quail, Puff Pastry

Today’s ingredients are from Suzanne at A Pug in the Kitchen. I’m so excited on her behalf, because her recipe won a Whole Foods Market contest Your Best Drink for a Crowd!

As I get to know each reader, all of you manage to become my heroes and sheroes.

Cookbook-2 Begins! Cherries, Mascarpone, Marsala

Hello and welcome back! I can’t tell you how happy I am that you’ve been patient during the past couple of weeks, while I got ready for Cookbook-2 of our Three Ingredients Serial.   The first set of “ingredients” for Cookbook-2 came from Evelyne Holingue. I guess they’re leftovers,  because I’ve been hanging onto them.  Evelyne sent them just before the … More Cookbook-2 Begins! Cherries, Mascarpone, Marsala

Three Ingredients – 24: Aubergine, Thyme, Red Pepper

 It came as a very pleasant surprise when CB sent the ingredients for today’s episode. CB is new to the blogosphere.  That information was unexpected, because I think “Better Dressed than Joe” is a great blog, with posts that are quick, evocative, and charming — and delightful sketches too. It’s not something I’d expect from a beginner. I … More Three Ingredients – 24: Aubergine, Thyme, Red Pepper

Welcome back! Can you tell that I’m excited about this episode?  The ingredients for this episode are from Willy Nilly, writer of the blog Willy Nilly To and Fro ~ The Philosophy of Inanity.  However, there’s nothing willy-nilly or disorganized about the stories and posts you’ll find there.  I hope you’ll pay a visit to Willy … More Three Ingredients – 23: Seaweed Sheets, Rice, Sesame Oil

Three Ingredients – 22: Black Olives, Mascarpone, Thyme

Hello everyone, This vintage illustration of a “Queen of the May” from a bygone day immediately made me think of Daisy, “the dainty dish” mentioned in our previous episode.
