After a loooooong hiatus, I'm back! I needed to focus on work and family for a little while, but I missed my food blogging. So I jumped in with both feet and joined the newest TWD group. I really loved being a part of the original Tuesdays With Dorie (Greenspan) group, and this one is probably going to be just as delicious. Maybe a bit more difficult, but I'm still excited.
We are following Dorie's book, Baking with Julia, published in the mid-90's. I bought my copy used, from Amazon, and it came from a Goodwill shop in California, with "Rosie's Cookbook" written in the cover. I wonder who Rosie is, and I hope she knows her cookbook is being brought back to life!
I've never made popovers before, because I always assumed that you needed the popover pan. FALSE! YOU DON'T! Dorie told me so. You can just use a muffin pan, spacing out the batter to every other tin. Ta-da! Fresh hot popovers on Saturday morning. Loved by husbands and toddlers alike. Try them yourself, using the recipe posted here!
These were good - but not great. I think I'd add something more to the batter next time, maybe a pinch more salt or even a bit of sugar. I guess they are supposed to be a vehicle for butter/jam/clotted cream, but I would like them to have a little more flavor as a stand-alone treat. Lots of fun to get back into it, though, and look out for MORE Dorie/Julia deliciousness!
