This is the new home for the Improv Challenge, a monthly party where everyone takes the same two assigned ingredients and lets their imaginations run wild. It doesn't matter what other ingredients we use, whether we make something savory or sweet. Please make sure these are New-to-Your-Blog recipes, not links to things you have already published.
There is no obligation to participate every month. Once you sign up with me, you will receive a monthly email reminding you of the reveal date and the ingredients for that month as well as a code for the link party. If you have too many things going on that month, you do nothing. If you choose to participate, I need you to send me the title of your post along with the name of your blog before the reveal date. That tells me to approve you for the party. Think of me as the 6'6" doorman outside the club. I keep the spammers out and the party on theme. Anyone can play along, but I have to know beforehand that they are participating. You will continue to receive monthly emails from me until you tell me otherwise. If you want out for good, I will take you off the email list, no questions asked.
We will post every third Thursday of each month at 9am Eastern Time.

New Members: If you are interested in participating in the Improve Challenge I need you to join the Improv Challenge Yahoo Group ( http://groups.yahoo.com/group/inprov_challenge/) We are now so big that I cannot send out emails through my yahoo address.
Step One: Make a new-to-your- blog recipe using the two assigned ingredients
Step Two: All posts must include a link to this blog. You can use the Improv Button code found on my FAQS page or simply mention and link to the site. Your post cannot be accepted by the blog hop without the link.
Step Three: Attach the blog hop code at the bottom of your post. I will have sent you the code or a link to the code in your monthly email.
Step Four: Set your post to publish on the designated reveal date at 9am Eastern Time.
If you have any questions or problems, feel free to email me. I may not have the answers immediately if it's a technical problem.
