Party Recipes, Post 1

Orange popovers – F&W

Confession – these popped beautifully, but then stuck in the tin, so all I was able to remove were the tops.  They were still a hit, but I’m not sure if the tins just didn’t get buttered enough or what.  They are incredibly easy to make, and absolutely delicious.

I doubled the recipe, and used orange extract instead of orange zest, but forgot to double the extract, so they were less brightly flavored than I would have liked.

Lavender honey Mascarpone cream – Bakewise

This didn’t actually get made, but if it had, it TOTALLY would have complimented the orange popovers.

  • 1 c heavy cream
  • 1/2 c mascarpone cheese
  • 3 tbs honey (we were going to use lavender honey)

1. Freeze beaters and bowl.  Whip cream to medium firm peaks.

2. Whisk together mascarpone and honey in separate bowl.  Fold into whipped cream.

3. Serve chilled.

Chipotle-garlic edamame – F&W

I didn’t realize until afterwards that this recipe calls for the edamame in pods, not the unshelled beans.  I don’t think it made much of a difference to anyone, and this way there weren’t any discarded shells to clean up.  Also, this recipe calls for ONE chipotle in adobo, which is clearly not how they are packaged.  So, we now have THE REST OF THE CAN sitting in the fridge, waiting for R to use it in a stew or soup.  Something to think about if you’re frugal or not a huge fan of chipotle/adobo.
