Horizon Hit: Young Moms! Pretend Soup


I have a passion for young moms and their kids because that was such a sweet time (oh, but busy) in our lives. Fleeting and Precious. There was this easy book I turned to again and again with my girls in the kitchen for fun easy recipes. I’m going to share my favorite recipe from there with you, but you just have to get this book (I’m thrilled it’s still around) for your kitchen staple (yes, Jessica, Rebecca, Amy, Morgan, Lauren, Onalise, Jennifer (I hope there are more of you out there, those are my most recents contacts ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m thinking about you!) And grand moms too ๐Ÿ™‚

So here is our favorite: Pg. 26. . . Popover Recipe: Pretend Soup by Mollie Katzen and Ann Henderson (I love how they provide easy picture directions kids can follow!) ย This post is dedicated to you ย moms with the desire and purpose to home school.

about 2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
extra butter, jam, honey or maple syrup for the popovers

1. Preheat oven to 375F, and melt butter
2. “Paint” the insides of 12 muffins cups with melted butter
3. Break eggs into the mixing bowl.
4. Add milk and beat well.
5. Add flour and salt and whisk until reasonably well blended- it doesn’t have to be perfect. Little hands are so appropriate ๐Ÿ™‚
6. Use a 1/4 cup measure with a handle to pour batter into each muffin cup.
They should be 1/2 to 2/3 full.
7. Bake 20 minutes without opening the oven.
8. Remove muffins form the pan and prick with a flak to let the steam escape. Spread insides with butter and/or jam, honey, etc.
Yield: 1 dozen

So yummy warm on a cool Fall afternoon after school. And Oh, the math they can learn in the kitchen. When I picked up our book, it is still sticky from little hands. I have no intention of wiping it down. I like the traces of jammy fingers ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Can’t wait to try them, Tracey Becca. You Mom made the best popovers, and Toby still talks about them I may surprise him with these. You are in our constant prayers and thoughts.

  2. Im not a young mom but Cole loves to help in the kitchen. Looks like a great cookbook. Getting him involved in cooking may help to increase his vegetable intake.
