Sunday Brunch: Popovers

There is a certain charm to something absurdly easy and impressive. That sort of thing that you can be known for whipping up on a Sunday morning to impress your friends who don't cook, and how no idea that it takes no talent at all. This thing is called a popover. It is delicious.

For popovers:

1 Tb oil or melted butter, plus more for greasing muffin pan
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup flour

For serving:
Jam, butter, honey, etc.

Heat oven to 425. Put the pan into the oven to heat while mixing the batter.

Mix the first five ingredients in a bowl until inportated. Add the flour little by little, making sure batter is smooth.

Remove pan or popover tin from oven (with care). Fill each cup 1/2 way.

Bake for 15 minutes at 425, then reduce heat to 350 for another 15 minutes.  The popovers should be golden brown and puffed up.

Makes 10-12, depending on tin.

Potatoes with White Wine and Paprika

This isn't even really a recipe, but it's delicious, and deserves to be spread around. My roommate Shayla has lately gotten me into filet mignon. The grocery store near our house will cut it to order, which sort of evens out the rediculous prices, becuase you can ask for a piece just the right size. A little salt and pepper and a good sear is all that they need. And, of course, a side.

I love me a boiled potato. You may have noticed. They are creamy and simple and good, and can take a range of flavors. This one is perfect because it works warm, or you can prepare it a day ahead and take it as a picnic or lunch. It works for one or ten. What more could you want, really?

For Potatoes:

Good quality potatoes, think four small or two medium per person
A dry white wine
Good, fruity olive oil
Hot paprika
Salt
Fresh ground pepper
Scallions, about 1/2-1 per portion

Set potatoes to boil in well-salted water. While they are boiling, chop the white and light green parts of the scallions in small rounds. When the potatoes are soft and easily pierced with a fork, drain and quickly spalsh with white wine. (Measurements are hard here--1 tablespoon or a bit more per portion? Start with less. You can always add). Follow with a glug of olive oil (again, you can always add more). Sprinkle with 1/3 teaspoon of paprika per portion, or more to taste. Add salt and pepper. Toss, taste, and add more as needed. Eat, cold, hot, or standing.
