Nordic Ware popover pan giveaway

Hi guys! Happy almost New Year! I hope you’re all enjoying this awesome holiday season! I’m in snowy Tahoe and craving one of those sugar-crusted popovers in the above photo. There’s something about skiing in the mountains all day that doesn’t make me feel so guilty about eating treats like sugar-crusted popovers and french fries! ūüėČ So most of you know that I’m a HUGE FAN¬†of popovers! I mean I make them¬†2 times a week, if not more. I even have 5 popover recipes on my blog, plus an instructional video, so you could really say that I’m a bit obsessed with these quirky and tasty little guys! ¬†If you haven’t made them yet, then you’re in for a treat! …

Hi peeps! Guess what? I’m finally posting another video for the blog! ¬†Yippee! ¬†Gosh, I can’t believe that it’s been 2 years since I posted my¬†lacinato kale salad video tutorial. Oops, Marin mama has been slacking in the video making department, sorry!¬†Hopefully it won’t take me 2 more years to get another one out! For those of you that follow my blog, you know that I’m pretty much obsessed with kale and popovers. ¬†I have 20 kale recipes on my blog (wow, I guess I really am obsessed) and a mere 6 popover recipes, so maybe I’m a tad more obsessed with kale than popovers, but I still love popovers! ¬†My friends actually tell me that when I open my …

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 …

Happy Sunday everyone! ¬†My gosh, I can’t believe that it’s been a little over 2 weeks since I’ve posted a recipe for you all. ¬†I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of opening up my blog and looking at that picture of rosemary chicken. ¬†Don’t get me wrong, I love that chicken recipe and have been making it tons, but I’m tired of looking at it everyday, so I decided to get up early (I’m writing this at 5:00 on Sunday) and get a fresh post out to you all. ¬†I’m hoping that with the new time change I’ll be able to get out more recipes, as there will finally be some light to photograph with come dinner time. …

popovers with rosemary and sea salt

We’re a total popover loving family. We love the traditional popovers, sugar-crusted popovers and now these rosemary and sea salt popovers. Popovers are my carb of choice because they’re SO easy to make up and require a few simple pantry ingredients. ¬†They may look all fancy and formal with their big puffy tops and seem difficult to make, but let me tell you, they’re one of the easiest recipes to make. They even have an exact cooking time which makes them even easier to make up. I came up with the idea for these popovers after Zoe showed me a picture of some dinner rolls topped with rosemary and sea salt. The rolls look fabulous, and I’m going to give …

sugar-crusted popovers

Sugar-crusted popovers what can I say! These popovers are THE BOMB,¬†and one of my kids favorite breakfast treats (I’ll admit, they’re one of my favorite treats as well)!¬† They’re sugar crusted goodness on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside. They’re a cross between cinnamon toast, a sugar and cinnamon donut and a popover. These popovers are more like a breakfast/brunch treat, or can even be qualified as a dessert, because they’re that tasty! ¬†I mean look at those bad boys! ¬†They bake up huge and look super fancy and complicated, but they’re really so simple to make. ¬†Friends and loved ones will be impressed and thank you immensly when you serve up a batch of these! I …

I just love fall. The air starts to get crisp and the nights get shorter, I crave afternoon chai tea, comfort food, a fire in the fireplace and my big soft blanket to nestle in. ¬†One of my family’s favorite comfort foods is popovers. ¬†When you come by my house and start smelling these in the oven, then you know fall is here.¬†Popovers are a bit funny! I mean look at them, they each have their own unique appearance. It’s like they’re having a competition to see who can rise the highest or popover the most. Get it, popover? ¬†I seriously crack myself up sometimes! Popovers seem like they would be difficut to make, but let me tell you, they’re …
