This was a very different but fabulous upside down cake.  Most of us are familiar with Pineapple Upside Down Cake which is a more coffee cake kind of cake and generally no inside filling.  It was a nice change to use nectarines instead of the usual canned pineapple slices, the   Read More ...

These were so easy and fun to make… absolutely delicious too.  I tried them with jam which is the usual topping but since the popovers reminded me of the taste of crepes I also tried it with fresh squeezed lemon juice and confectionary sugar and it was wonderful… just like   Read More ...

This was easy and so yummy … looks like you spent much more time making it than you did.  A real winner on all counts.
