Musings: Popovers

For this month’s second recipe, we’re tackling the Barefoot Contessa’s Popovers!

Make them for breakfast. Snack on one with your afternoon tea. Or serve them with this month’s other recipe: Ina’s East Hampton Clam Chowder.

We’ll be posting our popovers on Thursday, Oct. 28.

So, have you baked popovers before? Will you be adding anything special, like pumpkin spices or herbs?

I’ve chosen the 2nd recipe by default again since the originally chosen 2nd recipe for September was a repeat and I couldn’t wait for another recipe before posting this.  I thought it would be a great complement to the chowda!

Musings: Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Since we’re honoring the lazy days of summer, you have all month to make and post Ina’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake.

Will you be making it for a special occasion, like Father’s Day breakfast? Are you going to try to lighten up the recipe or change the flavor?

Spill!

June Recipe Choices + Some Small Changes

My apologies for posting June’s recipes so incredibly late!  I realize this is the day before the 2nd Thursday of the month but I’ve decided to relax the posting requirements for the summer months (through September).  I’ve also decided to close membership to new members (as of today) for the summer months (also through September).  I’d like to get the blogroll back in order and I’m going to need some time to do this…time, which seems to be escaping me these days.  If you have any questions, please let me know.
