Popovers, also referred to as Yorkshire Pudding, are a great accompaniment to a juicy roast beef or steak dinner. Key things to making great popovers are to make sure the oil in the pan is hot before pouring the batter in, and no peeking while popovers are baking. Rising high in the pan, crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside is what you are looking for in the perfect popover. Time to invest in a Nordic Ware Popover pan so I can get those really high popovers!

I'm on a quest to add more Superfoods to my diet, so I figure why not start with breakfast. Incorporating them into my 1st meal of the day gets me energized and tends to make me feel like I'm starting the day off on the right foot. We don't usually think of things like Avocado and Kale to eat for breakfast but "why not".

I love when different celebrations throughout the year put one on a search for new recipes. Browsing through many Irish recipes for St Patrick's Day I came across this one from Edible Ireland. There are a variety of recipes for Colcannon, some using cabbage or parsnips, but the most traditional uses Kale. Kale is an amazing super food and adds great flavour to this potato dish.

Macarons seem to have become very popular lately. Once only found in specialty bakeshops, you can now buy them at most local grocery stores. More people are eating gluten free and this is one little baked treat that fits into a gluten free diet. Macarons are made with ground almonds, egg whites, and sugar. With such a simple list of ingredients how can the task of making them be so daunting most people won't even try?

This is a quick and simple recipe to perk up your potatoes. These roast potatoes go very well with grilled steak or oven roasted chicken. I used red and white baby new potatoes in this recipe, but any kind of potato will work.

I have always loved the look of Springerle Cookies. The cookie molds are true works of art. The craftsmanship that goes into every detail of the mold is exquisite. I bought my heart shaped cookie mold from House on the Hill. These are not quick and easy cookies to make, but the time you take is rewarded with cookies that everyone will rave about.
