POPOVER for some ROOS

THE last thing I saw on my computer screen last night was...
I sleep so soundly so I'm not sure but I THINK I dreamed of them
ALL NIGHT LONG..
NOW...I have NEVER claimed to be a good cook.
In fact, sometimes it is extremely HARD for me to cook or bake something 
anywhere NEAR out of the ordinary.
But, ONCE...
I made POPOVERS






 and, altho they didn't come CLOSE to the beauty popover
that KATHLEEN made...
...they tasted great, especially full of APRICOT PRESERVES..
SOOO
this morning, I tried YVONNE'S
JORDAN POND HOUSE POPOVERS
 but once again...




THEY DIDN'T RISE TO THE OCCASION..
bwaaaaaaa...
what am I doing wrong...?....





WHILE I was 'singing the blues' over my little
RISE-LESS popovers, my doorbell rang.




and sitting in my porch swing....a package.
 I was blessed enuf to win an AWESOME GIVEAWAY
Look at her adorable card...did you make this, o smart and talented one ?
OMYGOSH..
taffy....TAFFY, YA'LL...
The cutest pillow with ROOS 'n RUFFLES
RUFFLES 'n ROOS






ADORABLE little TEA TOWELS
to match the pillow...




      I'M  IN  LOVE !

OKAY, now THIS is the cutest little fellow......EVER
OOO, I love him, Shelia...
you just KNEW I would ! 
What a wonderful way to start my day...
popovers that didn't STAND TALL
but came thru with wonderful taste...
AND...a *visit* from a wonderful blogging friend that knows me well enuf
to send CANDY !!
THANKS so much, Sister Friend, Shelia...
I love it all so much.
(and, YES, that's a bite taken out of that chocolate piece..
and as soon as I snapped the photo,
I ate it and TWO more.
:)

I have found that if you do use a muffin tin for the popovers, you need to use every other one. Give a space between the popovers for heat to circulate. You also need to grease the tins. No spray! Hope this helps.

Sweet Tea said...

I can't remember the last time I ate a Popover - I thought yours looked great!

Are you the lucky blogger winning those cute hens things?!
Congratulations!

Julie Harward said...

So you are the lucky one huh?! I just loved those pretty things that Shelia made...enjoy them! :D

Michele Smith said...

YUM!!!
Lucky girl...I love that roo pillow.
Have a great day

Boo-Bah said...

OOHH, I am salivating over those popovers. I haven't made then in a long time but seeing your pictures you can bet that I will be making them soon. They are so good with strawberry preserves.

I love the pillow with the rooster and the crocheted chicken. So cute!!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Congrats on the win they look perfect at your house. I have never made popovers. I am sure mine would not do right. I am not a good baker.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

I think your popovers look yummy! What an adorable win..my favorite is the rooster pillow and the towels, to darn cute!
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

Donnie said...

My mil made fabulous popovers and she said that I needed to use a popover pan as opposed to a muffin pan because the cups were smaller and taller. I've yet to invest in one so I just make her make me some when we get together. Now I have a craving for them....lol....Loved all the sweet things Sheila sent you. That's because you are so special. Take care.

Kathleen Grace said...

All in all, itlooks like a pretty sweet day! Adorable package and tasty popovers. Once you eat 'em nobody can even tell how high they rose;>)

à la parisienne said...

I've never made popovers, but they look so fun. I'm sure my 3 year old daughter would also find them enjoyable.
Congrats on your new goodies-and that taffy looks delicious!

Thank you for your sweet comment about my Audrey Hepburn hat:)

Have a happy week,
Mandy

Shelia said...

HI BJness! I don't care what you say - I know you're a great cook because every recipe of yours I've tried turns out wonderfully! Your biscuit recipe is 'my' recipe now!
I'm so glad you like your little things I made. I was hoping the taffy wasn't melted in this hot heat. The taffy is made in a little shop downtown and when I buy it, I can't stop eating it! :)

Kathleen said...

That rain makes me feel I have to run to the Ladies Room, LOL!

Thanks for the mention.
Did you get your pans hot before you poured the batter in?
As long as they taste good, that's what matters! :)
Enjoy your gifts!

Barbara F. said...

Congrats BJ! I love your winnings, especially the crocheted little hen! I am sure your popovers tasted delish. xo,

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh, I'm so glad you won such a great prize! I just read about Yvonne's popovers and the funny thing is as I told her, our "getting very famous" fancy restaurant is now making popovers from a recipe the owners grew up eating at a restaurant in Maine. I have to check and see if it is the same recipe. I haven't tried making them yet...but you have me curious as to if I can do it.

Karie's Chic Creations said...

Oh, I am jealous! You won Sweet Shiela's adorable give-away. How lucky are you? Now I am putting in for yours. Hope I can win! Hugs friend bj. You are the sweetest, Karie

Debbie said...

I have a popover pan so I usually have good luck with mine. My particular recipe is emphatic about not turning on the oven until they go in and not touching that door until they come out.

I love popovers!!!

Always Nesting said...

Those do look soooo tasty. I've never tried to make a popover. What a sweet pot of winnings for you. The pillow cover and tea towels are simply amazing. Maybe you should think about regifting them :) Kidding, kidding.....

forgetmenot said...

I have always been of the opinion that it is how the food tastes not how it looks that makes it a success or not. I haven't made popovers in years, but I'm trying yours soon. I LOVED listening to the rainfall as I read your post. It has been a while since we've had a good rain here. Have a great day. Mickie :)

Holly said...

I think your popovers look just fine. I can't get my biscuits to rise. Great gifts fro Shelia. She's a special lady.

Theresa said...

The popovers look YUMMY as does everything you cook! GREAT gifts from this talented, sweet lady! I absolutely love that pillow and towels!

Enjoy this evening dear BJ, HUGS!

Zondra Art said...

Looks soo nice and taste, I lake it!
Greetings and kisses:)

Olive Cooper said...

I think you are a great cook! Popovers take practice...you will get it right and they taste good. The pillowcase is far too cute.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Okay this is such a wonderful post full of delights. I love that pillow and yum that taffy.

Blondie's Journal said...

I LOVE popovers but I would never attempt to make them...they look too difficult and I am afraid failure would make me stop liking them as much!! Yours LOOK good!! How did they taste with the jam?

How sweet that you won the goody box from Shelia {she is such a dear}. The pillow is darling as is the crocheted chicken. Very cute! Don't you love getting packages in the mail?!!

Have a good night, BJ!

XO,
Jane

Ralph said...

Happily, the roosters return for us to admire!

I am imagining a popover with the eggy taste, warm and served with a soft honey butter. A fine treat! I wouldn't worry about a slightly flatter popovers - warm they are excellent too!

TexWisGirl said...

well, at least the popovers tasted good! and the taffy? i wouldn't have even been able to stop and take a photo... :)

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Congrats on your win...I love that crochet roo....I saw that she was making them!!

Natasha @ Keeping the Christmas Spirit Alive, 365 said...

How exciting that you won the give away from Sheila! That cushion is so cute and looks perfect in its new home.

Best wishes and happy week,

Vee said...

What sweet gifts that came your way...just wonderful. I'd say popovers that taste great are a fantastic success.

CHERI said...

Wow...all those pics have made me sooo hungry and for something sweet. Uh oh! I feel the calories coming on. I finally got around to posting something yesterday after quite a long hiatus so hope you'll visit when you have time. I've missed reading your blog so need to catch up. Hope all is well in your world!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I know they say it's looks that matter, but not so! It's the taste!
Those popovers looked delicious!
And congratulations on winning Shelia,s beautiful giveaway!
I'm happy for you! Everything is adorable!!

Traci said...

I've never even heard of a popover! but Oh My!The look yummie! Love your Roo pillow!

Auntie said...

Dear 'BJ,' I remember a post you did, showing lots of places which go by the name of "BJ's." Stores and cafes and this and that.

Well I have a new one for you, in my post. :-)

Gentle hugs...

McKelle said...

Hey Bj, Thanks for stopping by my blog and looking at the Antique telephone table....I went to the link you left me and now I have no qualms about painting it!!! I know exactly what I'm going to do with it now! I have never had a popover but they look delicious...so do your salads in the previous post! Thank you so much!!! :)

Liz said...

BJ,
I haven't tried to make pop overs...but I CAN NOT make yeast breads! They rise ONCE, but then lie flatter than a fritter! That's why you'll only see quick breads On Crooked Creek. Believe me...I do understand!
Fondly,
Pat
P.S. Congratulations! The pillow and tea towels look darling in your home! Enjoy!
