POP on Over...

When one blogs for 9 years, as I have,
one has favorite posts in their archives.

Going thru the past, I always find a post worth sharing again...
and the following is one of my very favorites.
I can remember how much fun I had, 
getting it all ready for my friends..
 Some of you might know of the battle between
A BEAUTIFUL, TALL POPOVER and MYSELF.
Now, the above popovers were as tasty as anything I've ever made....




...'specially FILLED with all that good homemade
APRICOT PRESERVES.


Not having the correct pan to make them in, I used a
regular muffin tin....

and they didn't rise very much...
or...
they rose..
and then fell in the middle...not sure which.






I buy the dried apricots in a package,
cut them with kitchen shears into little snippets,
cover with water,
add sugar,
a little vanilla,
and gently boil until the apricots become soft and falling apart...
then the syrup begins to thicken and
O HONEY
they are so so delicious.
* be sure to stir almost constantly as they thicken so they won't burn
or stick really bad to your pan. 


they were good....
MERCY, they were good and Mr. Sweet
really loved them.
BUT.......... 
I really really wanted to make some like 

 KATHLEEN'S
or.....
 



YVONNE


They are REAL cooks and I am more a SEMI-HOMEMADE type gal....
not a REAL cook at all...
but I sure would like to make just ONE batch of really pretty POPOVERS...

 AND THEN.....
the wondrous mailman arrived
at my doorstep with the most wonderful package...


SET OF 6 POPOVER PAN




And, not only the pan but a TRIED AND TRUE recipe for POPOVERS.
and...the sweet note says
"I hope this helps make your popovers a success. Please enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving, Michle"
                    ♥ ♥ ♥
 











 She told me to NOT PEEK in the oven until the full 30 minutes for cooking was finished.

 So, being the GOOD GIRL that I am, I didn't peek.....

and when the time was up....
I opened the oven and....
nearly wet down both pants legs..
they were  ♫♪  BEAUTIFUL ♪♪♫


 Now, THAT'S what I'm talkin' about...!!









 What a beauty... I am sooo impressed with my silly self...
♫♪♪
(well, OK...the wondrous pan and the fabulous recipe DID contribute to these
bloomin' beauties...:>)
THANK YOU SO MUCH, MICHLE
 ♥
Warm LEMON CURD poured over this magnificent popover
took it all RIGHT OVER THE MOON....
and what a ride !!      
 ♥♥♥   
WOO HOOOOOO

Why, I'm WALKIN' THE WALK
and
TALKIN' THE TALK....
I am feelin' MIGHTY good....
♪♪♫..."I can bake a pretty popover, Billy Boy, Billy Boy".....♫♪♪

Just take a look at that texture...
the TEXTURE of the popover was PERFECT...
.....light and airy, just the way a popover is supposed to be.

Thanks to MICHLE, I can NOW
make a popover with the big girls.
♥YAY......
 Love and blessings to all,
bj

  5. Hot-dog BJ, those really look wonderful. But I have a feeling even the flops ,before the pop-over pans probably tasted really good too. Love that tea kettle. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  12. Now those are some beautiful Popovers, BJ...I did one disastrous attempt to make popovers...for a Christmas dinner with a classic authentic British recipe...They looked more like crepes(!) Hmmm....maybe it's all about the pan??! A Fun Post!

  13. Yummy. You've brought back memories. My mother used to make this for a special breakfast. When only put butter on them. I love pop overs! What a fantastic pan what a fun present!
    Thanks for sharing.

  14. I have never made popovers, and boy do yours look great. Hmmm, might be something I should try down the road a piece.

    God bless.

  15. Yay for you!! I worked PT at Williams-Sonoma for about a year after I retired. Some of the customers left lasting memories! :) This one lady came in one day looking for a Pop Over pan. I showed them to her and secretly wished she'd buy me one! Lol!
    Seriously, she probably stayed about an hour checking it out and left without purchasing anything. The next day she returned and, yes, you're right ~ same song, 14th verse! Her visits continued throughout the week with no purchases. F-i-n-a-l-l-y, after more than a week of her visits she bought 2 pans! She returned a couple weeks later for a mix but said her recipe did well. Just one of many stories...

    Enjoy your pop-overs, apricots (Love!) and lemon curd! Have you made lemon curd? It's very easy. Have a great week!

  16. Yum! These look good. I've never made them and was under the impression that they were sort of hollow inside. At least that is what I saw in a photo once. I love learning new things at my age! lol! Have a great week!

  17. Now those are some great looking popovers. I might have to steal a recipe...
