popover to Austin

Austin, TX postcard mural

I’ve been in Austin, Texas all weekend, visiting Marissa. Actually, not just Austin, but Waco and Round Top too. So this week, along with the recipes from more than a week ago from our Easter supper, there will be a bit of Texas thrown into the mix.

The silo sign

Our first adventure was hopping in the car and driving to Waco, TX so that we could visit and shop at the Magnolia Market Silos.

You know, Magnolia Market, as in Joanna and Chip Gaines from the ever-so-popular Fixer Upper on HGTV.

It was raining when we arrived, but it cleared up as the day went on.

We were nice and dry in shopping heaven, so the rain didn’t bother us anyhow!

Here I am with my two little bags of purchases. I couldn’t go too crazy, since I flew to Austin, I could only buy as much as I could get in my suitcase.

Magnolia Market Garden Shop

That’s OK, maybe I’ll drive the next time. By then this sweet little Garden Shop will be open along with the Magnolia Bakery, which should be opening in the next month or so.

After all, a girl needs goals!

cheddar popover recipe

Stir in cheddar cheese and set aside.

Place two 6-cup popover pans in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove pans and, quickly, brush the cups with the melted butter.

pop in the oven

Evenly divide the batter between the popover cups and return the pans to the oven. Bake until popovers are puffed over pan rims and are a lovely golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Cut a small slit into the top of each popover to release steam; return to the oven and bake for 10 more minutes.


Serve immediately with butter and/or jam.
