This morning I awoke from the late night movie my daughter and I stayed up watching, with a desire for something special. My wife is in town at her mothers overnight so she can save us some money at a special garage sale early this morning, so it's just daughter and dad. Good bonding time for both of us. I decided to whip up a quick batch of popovers or Yorkshire pudding as some call them. We usually have them with dinner but I recall hearing they are good with jam also. Here are my results.
After two frightening hydro bills, I decided that I needed to investigate more energy efficient methods for baking small items. Typically I would heat up my full-sized conventional oven to bake a crust for cheesecake which would take 10-15 minutes after preheating for probably 15-20 minutes. I still intend to use my large oven for bread, but I suspect many other things could be done more economically in a counter-top oven.
