Huge Yorkshire Puddings

Yorkshire puddings with jam!

Yorkshire puddings are big, puffy popovers with a different name. The difference between the two is that popovers are usually cooked in a bit of butter or oil, while Yorkshire puddings are usually cooked in beef drippings, or meat fat that has come off of a nice roast. I find that the names are interchangeable most of the time on most menus and I tend ... Read More »

Unlike a souffle, you actually want these to fall when they come ... Read More »

Lemon Scented Popovers

I like popovers. I like the way they’re crispy on the outside and custardy on the inside. They take almost no time to make and look impressive.
