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 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.

sugar-crusted popovers

Set your weary eyes on these puppies.  Amazing!  They taste as good as they look, or should I say better than they look, as they look kind of weird.  These popovers are crusty on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside.  This popover is more like a breakfast treat or it can even be qualified as a dessert.  It’s a cross between cinnamon toast, a sugar and cinnamon donut and a popover.   I came across this recipe at the hair salon, of all places, while my highlights were processing.  I had 20 minutes to kill, so I started pursuing my iPad for some fun popover recipes I could try, when I stumbled across this page: Wow, are you …

Popovers with fresh thyme and gruyere cheese

Here is great addition to the basic popover recipe that I posted last month.  I am giving full credit to my friend, Amanda Baker (aka theBaker mama), for her twist on the traditional popover.  She decided to add fresh thyme and gruyere cheese to her popovers one day and texted me a photo.  My mouth was watering just looking at the photo, so I knew I was going to have to make them soon.   John was making some orange glazed ham and sautéed spinach with shallots for dinner so we decided these popovers would be the perfect compliment to the meal.   Needless to say, they were delicious! Note:  Popovers are best when served warm.   Popovers with fresh thyme …

popovers

I just love fall.  When 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, …
