I have some interesting tidbits to pass your way, so listen up. 

Pretty please.

~A Guidebook~

Have you heard about the Blog Guidebook?

They have lots of interesting tips for bloggers and they offer a free listing of your blog in one of their many blogging categories. And if you spread the word about their fantastic site, they'll include your button in one listing. This is a limited time offer, so hurry now!

~A Giveaway~

A very talented lady, Amy, at Eventyrhus is celebrating a fantastic milestone with a giveaway. She has reached 10,000 page views on her blog and is giving away an adorable shopping sack decorated with your choice of one of her many delightful photos. I have my choice picked out, but it wasn't easy!

Go here to see for yourself.

~A Gastronomic feat~

And the feat you ask? Gastronomic, nonetheless, you say?

After years of lackluster results, the spirits of the former farm wives roaming the old farmhouse have finally taken pity on me.

I introduce to you, mile high Yorkshire pudding or popovers as some people call them.

Just please don't tell me they're called toboggans. That could very well be the end of me.

The secret to my success?

Warm eggs.

Believe it or not.

Warm eggs? As in *just layed*? Hmmmm. have to try it!
Well they don't call them toques but, anything that resembles a biscuit is a bicuit! I will have do a post on "Southern Speak" sometime!

I already entered Amy's giveaway! I have 3 chances. Woohoo!

I think I am in the Blog Guidebook. I need to check-thanks for the reminder...something else on my to-do list. Yes, thanks :0

I love, love, love your new header! So fitting!
What do the symbols say at the top? It is Year of the Rabbit, I guess?!

Keep that toboggan on!

Being English, Yorkshire Pudding has always been a staple.......but many times it refused to PUFF time I got so mad, I threw the pan and the yorkshire pudding out the back door into a snow bank, where it wasn't found til spring.
I found a better recipe......MORE EGGS.
Worked much better. But I will now try to make sure they are warm.

I have never heard them called Yorkshire Pudding. They've always been popovers to me. But either way, they look absolutely delicious! Any chance of getting one with a cuppa tea?

Michelle said...

Wow! Those popovers look awesome.
