I am pretty excited about a new discovery recipe for our upcoming book.  Last year we had a neighbor friend introduce us to popovers.  After recent testing I discovered it can be used for both mini popovers or the large standard size.  This is a big deal because the old recipe I used for the large popovers was ALOT of work which means I never made them.

Just before the recent International Food Bloggers Conference I took a food photography class….just to check it out….see what I could learn….did I need a new camera?…..and as I look at the detail of the cookies above…. the answer is yes ……all the nooks and crannies pop out with visible grains of sugar,  you can get so close with a macro lens.  Now I want to take pictures of everything! read more…

My renewal comes in the form of a food photography class AND I will be getting a new camera. read more…

Gluten Free Popover Recipes

by Karen

October 15, 2014 update:
As I work through recipes for our new book I made a happy discovery. The mini popover recipe in this post works well in a large popover pan too. This is the quickest way to bring some fresh gluten free bread to the table. It’s my go-to recipe for popovers now!

The mini popover recipe makes: 24 mini popovers (double the recipe for a large popover pan for 8)
Our new book version of the recipe was improved by incorporating some brown rice flour.
