Herbes de Provence popovers
I love getting gifts that I never expect, things that seem everyday, but you never seem to buy for yourself. One of my bday treats was a tin of herbes de provence, an amazing mixture of dried herbs and lavender that I had been meaning to add to my go-to spices. Over the weekend I tested out the blend on some roasted veggies (um, those were definitely the highlight of my lunch the other day), but in the spirit of the approaching day of feasting, I thought a recipe that was a bit more special was called for. I decided to go with popovers, the bronzed airy poufs that break open to reveal a spongy eggy bread. I used a recipe for parmesan popovers
that didn't require a special pan and could be blended with one switch of the blender. Twenty five minutes later, the kitchen smelled sweet with a touch of savory as I picked out the warm bread. The extra pops will definitely be another welcome addition to tomorrow's leftovers
