Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 17

Back on Track Last time I hit a bump in the road (or rather the railroad tracks).  However, the Victorian locomotive is back on schedule and running at full steam. John W. Howell gave us the very first set of “things” to guide the plot of this pantser serial.  Happily later he sent a second set of three, which … More Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers: Episode 17

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. And yes — I heard the commotion when I left our three suspects of ill-doing hanging in midair (literally) and basically you along with them. I’m just wicked that way… I really can’t help myself. I sincerely … More Three Ingredients II – 18: Conclusion – Sweet Potato, Wimberries, Worcestershire Sauce

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 – 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
