About Me

I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

Hot popovers saved the dreary rainy winter day and helped me turn the corner of a miserable cold.  Nothing like hot popovers and a hearty soup when you're puny and the weather is just awful.  I managed to put together Hearty Tuscan White Bean Soup (2/16/2012) in a crock pot and crawl back in bed for a few hours before a command performance to see grandson and cousins visit Santa.  It was worth the effort to see the little people dressed up sitting in Santa's lap.  The pictures should be great. 

I knew I'd enjoy those hot popovers and soup when I got home.  True comfort food. I'm headed back to bed and hope for better tomorrow.

Spray a popover tin or Pyrex cups with PAM and heat in oven to 425 degrees.  While oven heats, in a blender or food processor:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 room temp large eggs
1 1/4 cups whole milk
3 tbls neutral oil
3/4 tsp salt

Process or blend on high until batter is smooth.  Pour 3/4 of the way up into hot popover tin.
Return popover tin or cups to hot oven and bake 30 mins.  Serve immediately with butter.
