Pop Over for some POP OVERS....

 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....


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
(bwaaaa, she isn't blogging anymore...:>(
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

You always make everything look and sound so good that I start drooling. I have never even attempted making popovers. I don't even think I have ever eaten one. Now you make me want to get one of those pans and try them.

Michle said...

Thank you for acknowledgement in your popover post. They do look delicious. The popovers are great when served with braised short ribs also. Thanks again Bj.

I hope you are having a wonderful week! xo Diana

Linda Chapman said...

Oh MY!!! These look SO good!!! My daughter - the oldest - Summer - could make the BEST popovers! This post brings back such good memories! I will have to ask her to make some pretty soon! It has been YEARS!!! She was a teenager back then. She is now 48. HOW did THAT happen???

Great post!! As always!

Wow! Those popovers look yummy! I am a big fan of lemon curd. Don't have it often, but love it! I am glad you are now in the big girls league when it comes to making popovers. Me...I and not even in a league, since I have never made them. Maybe one day.

R U sipping wine while you're baking?
Just asking. LOL!!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

OH MY GOODNESS! A popover pan arrived at your front door? I am so happy for you! I haven't one either..but I never make popovers..I let daughters do it..and like you..I am not a real cook. Well..to me you are a REAL cook. Semi homemade is what do too!
What a nice pan and just look how beautiful your popovers are. :)
Merry Christmas, bj!

Michelle Ridgway said...

I have always wondered what a popover is...and now I know. They look very yummy and your new test run looks great.

Sqquee said...

Those. Look. SOOO. Good!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Congrats on your beautiful popovers BJ-They look great! It always helps to have the right toy, er... TOOL for the job:@)

Having read this I am feeling hungry, time for lunch I think :)

Blondie's Journal said...

I'm happy you conquered the popover challenge!! I have never made them but I had a neighbor that made the best...she filled them with custard and I thought I was in heaven! The pans look wonderful, I have to check those out!

XO,
Jane

Sarcastic Quilter said...

You made me so hungry! Way to go on finally getting the height you've been working for. :)

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Oh how very sweet of Michle!!! You are now a Pro!!!

But know what "BJ," would these purrrrfect Pop-Overs be as sweeeeet, without the not-so-high-ones, you have made before?

Nope, betcha' not. The disappointment of not-going-high, makes the wonderssssssssss of going-high-with-the-right-pan, all the more wonderful.

Don't-cha-think? :-)

Gentle hugs,

And never better than at Christmas."

Wow, your popovers look great. I can see why Mr. Sweet likes them. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Oh, I haven't made popovers in FOREVER! When I was a teenager, whenever my parents left for the evening I would make them...or muffins...for dinner!

Jo-Lyn's Cup Cakes N' Candies said...

beautiful!!congrats on your new pan!

The French Hutch said...

Oh bj, you tickle me with your twist on stories. You should write a cookbook, it would be a bestseller!
What a sweet and thoughtful friend to send you this pan so you could make those popovers. They are drool worthy and I'm sure one taste and it's just delicious! Your photos are certainly publish worthy too.
bj, I wish your and yours a Merry Christmas.

Blessings sweet friend

(Because I can't stand to have my name misspelled, I'm trying again on Michle's.)

I love this popover story, including the "p" bit. Ha! Yay for dear blogging buddies. I want to give Michle a hug. (Now I really do want to know how she pronounces her name.)

Shay said...

Oh my goodness they look divine!

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a pop over pan (Ignorant Aussie that I am !)

Way to go on vanquishing the pop overs BJ.

Suzanne said...

That is a lovely story about receiving your popover pans. Your photos are magnificent. As it is almost lunch time here, I just wanted to grab one right off the post. Yum!

Michele Smith said...

I don't think I've ever had a popover either. They look good!

PEA said...

I didn't even know they made special pans for making popovers...I make mine in regular muffin pans so no wonder I can never make them nice and tall like that! lol I'll have to keep my eyes open for one of them pans!! Such a sweet gesture of your friend to send one to you, as well as the recipe, they sure do look scrumptious. xoxo

Michelle said...

They look absolutely delicious!

Katie said...

yes please. just drop them off at my place!

Jenn Erickson said...

Oh me, oh my! Your popovers look incredible, especially with the homemade preserves! Mmmm....
