Hi guys! Happy almost New Year! I hope you’re all enjoying this awesome holiday season! I’m in snowy Tahoe and craving one of those sugar-crusted popovers in the above photo. There’s something about skiing in the mountains all day that doesn’t make me feel so guilty about eating treats like sugar-crusted popovers and french fries! 😉
So most of you know that I’m a HUGE FAN of popovers! I mean I make them 2 times a week, if not more. I even have 5 popover recipes on my blog, plus an instructional video, so you could really say that I’m a bit obsessed with these quirky and tasty little guys! If you haven’t made them yet, then you’re in for a treat! Popovers are one of the easiest recipes to whip up, (trust me, watch my video to see how easy they are) and only require 5 simple ingredients. Yes, you heard me right, 5 simple ingredients; eggs, milk, butter, salt and flour. That’s it folks!
SO, since I love popovers so much, I decided to purchase one of my FAVORITE popover pans as a fun giveaway to get one of you started, and hopefully hooked on making these bad boys! My budget is a bit tight as I’m in school full-time, so I could only purchase one pan for the giveaway, but I just couldn’t resist it when I saw this cute little lonely pan sitting in the store. It looked at me and said, “please give me a home,” so that’s what I’m doing, I’m going to give this popover pan a new home to one of you!
This popover pan from Nordic Ware is the best. It may cost more than the normal popover pan, but it makes the perfect puffed up popover, and the bonus is that your popovers won’t stick to the pan. The pan is made of cast iron, so it cooks the popovers up evenly. I’ve had mine for 5 years now and I use it at least once a week, if not more, and it’s still looks brand new.
I’m doing this giveaway for FUN, because I really appreciate all of you who continue to read my blog and make my recipes, so I’m not going to ask any of you to follow me or like me on any form of social media. I’ve always been about growing this blog organically, so I’ve never been one to ask for followers or likes, as that seems slick to me!
All you have to do to get qualified for the giveaway is to leave your name and what you want to see from this blog in the new year. The new year is all about fresh beginnings, so I’m open to your ideas and suggestions! Just leave your ideas in a comment below the post.

In case I haven’t enticed you enough about how awesome popovers are, I’m going to show you some mouthwatering photos of 5 of my popover recipes, just to get you in the popover spirit!
Here’s our favorite classic popover recipe. This recipe only requires 5 simple ingredients! We pair these popovers with just about anything, as they go with just about anything! My kids even love them for breakfast with some jam or Nutella inside. They also love them cold, as a snack for school.
Sugar-crusted popovers! These are a sweeter version of the traditional popover. They’re a cross between cinnamon toast, a sugar and cinnamon donut and a popover. Make these for breakfast or brunch and your family will thank you!
Try these rosemary and sea salt popovers. These are my kid’s new favorite savory popover! AMAZING!
We love serving these rosemary and sea salt popovers with rosemary skillet chicken.
Or a bowl of weeknight chicken soup.
We also love these lemon thyme popovers.
Oranges are in season now, so why not make a batch of orange popovers?
My popover video is also super helpful and shows you just how easy it is to whip up a batch of popovers. Making a batch of popovers is literally a 35 minute process from start to finish!
I know most of you might be out of town, or just running around, so I’m going to give you all until Friday, January 8th to enter the giveaway. I’m also going to go “Old School” and have Eli draw the name from a bowl. I will record him picking the name out of the bowl and post it on my Instagram account on Saturday, January 9th! I will also announce the name of the winner on this blog on Saturday, January 9th as well!
Have a happy and safe New Year!
xoxo, Jacquelyn, Zoe and Eli
