Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2015! Marin mama is back! I honestly can’t believe that it’s been over a month since I last posted. I mean I really feel like a lame food blogger! I didn’t mean to take such a long break, but life and work got in the way, and thus the blog got put on the back burner. My commitment, or should I say resolution for this upcoming year is to make the blog a priority again. I know I’ve said it before, but I’m serious this time. I really miss cooking, creating, writing and talking to you all, so this is the year that Marin mama gets launched, oh yeah! I’m not sure entirely what that means, but I have lots of ideas that I will share with you all over the next few months. I’m excited for 2015 and enthusiastic to get out in the community more and expand and grow Marin Mama Cooks!
You’re probably wondering why am I starting off the new year with a popover post when most food bloggers are focusing on healthy detoxing foods. I thought about inventing a new kale salad or some sort of quinoa dish, but honestly I just wasn’t in the mood to really create and eat anymore kale or quinoa. I’m still kale obsessed as always, but lately I’ve been craving soups, meats and carbs, and thus that’s what I’ve been cooking up. I listen to my body and my cravings, as my body is usually telling me what it needs, and right now it wants winter comfort foods!
So since I’m a bit of a carbaholic, I decided to play around with one of my favorite carbs, popovers! I love experimenting with popovers, as it actually relaxes me in a strange way. I wanted to create a slightly sweet popover for snack time, breakfast and/or brunch. I had an orange handy and thought to myself, why not try tossing in some orange zest. Verdict, the kids love them, as well as a few of their peeps that I had be the guinea pigs. These popovers have a touch of sweetness and are the perfect afternoon snack for the kiddos, or a great breakfast and/or brunch addition. Serve them up warm from the oven plain, or open them up and slather their insides with some jam or butter. Yum!
