TWD: Popovers

I'm an admin for the TWD site.  You'd think that would mean I'd remember when it was time to bake and post a new recipe.  You'd be wrong.  I happened to see that my friend Dawn of Simply Sweet put up a post on Facebook about loving the popover recipe.  And then I screamed internally.  I meant to make them with dinner.

But this recipe?  This recipe is fabulous.  I whipped it up in about two minutes (literally whipped - you make it in the blender) and got it in the oven.  There are five ingredients.  Five.  Butter.  Milk.  Flour.  Salt.  Egg.  All things I have on hand.  I don't have a popover pan, so I used my muffin tin.

These were so good.  Really good.  The Girl was almost convinced to stop reading while she was eating.  That's how good these were.  The Boy crunched on despite having his braces tightened today.  The pain was worth it.  

These are definitely going into permanent rotation.  I can see adding some savory touches and some sweet ones as well.  These could sub really well for profiteroles.  Go see Paula's and Amy's blogs for much better photos and the recipe.

TWD: Berry Galette

This is what a summer dessert should be.  Mind you, I made mine in about three minutes with dough left over from last week's berry pie.

You just roll the dough in a circle(ish), pile on berries, fold the dough over the berries, sprinkle on some sugar, and put it in the oven.  Thirty minutes later, it's ready!

Mine was pretty small because I didn't have a lot of dough.  Having said that, I think these would be perfect to make into individual servings.

Berries and ice cream - the perfect summer combination!
