Comfort food at its finest. I can’t stop eating these. So good. Sinfully good with maple syrup drizzle. Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis.
- Butter, for greasing the pan
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Two 3-to-4-ounce sweet or spicy Italian sausage links, casings removed
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup shredded smoked mozzarella (4 ounces)
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 cups milk, at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 small green onions, pale green and white parts only, finely sliced to yield 1/4 cup
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Maple syrup, for drizzling
- Special equipment: One 12-cup nonstick muffin pan, each cup about 1/2-cup capacity, or a 12-cup popover pan, each cup about 1/2-cup capacity
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Butter the muffin cups.
Heat the oil over medium heat in a medium nonstick skillet. Add the sausage and break it into 1/4-to-1/2-inch pieces using a wooden spoon. Cook until brown and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons sausage into each muffin cup. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the sausage.
Blend the eggs in a blender until frothy, about 15 seconds. Add the milk, flour, green onions, basil, salt and pepper. Blend until just incorporated. Pour the batter into the muffin cups, filling each cup to just below the rim. Bake, without opening the oven door, until puffed and golden, about 35 minutes.
Place the popovers on a platter and drizzle with maple syrup.

Received my holiday catalog this week from Nordstrom’s. Sparkly jeweled collars are what stood out to me the most. What a great way to accessorize a simple outfit throughout the holiday season.

It’s election day 2012. Did you vote? I early voted (as usual). I’m always paranoid about my vote not counting the day of. Now, nervously watching live results.

I love shifting to dark colors in the fall and wintertime not only with my wardrobe but also with cosmetics. Some of my favorite noir beauty products.

I am so jealous. Can’t say much more than that. Gorgeous type and lettering that looks so effortless. Seb Lester’s work is magnificent . Watch this video to see these illustrations in real time. Seriously, I die. Better go practice my cursive again.

Seasons change and so do the smells associated with them. I’ve used up much of my summer candles. Goodbye to fruit and floral scents. With Thanksgiving less than three weeks away, it’s time to put out the fall and winter candles. I love unique candle scents that wrap a home in flickering light, warmness, and comfort. These are some of my favorite cold-weather candles.

Nothing frightens me more than seeing dead animals hanging on the wall. To each his own but it’s definitely not my decorating style. Perhaps its too lodge-y. Maybe too traditional. I much more prefer this guy on my wall. An urban deer. One that wasn’t hurt for decor sake.
