You just can’t go wrong with a popover.  My Grandmother always made these when I was a kid as a night time snack mostly, and there was never enough.  I remember the fragrant smell of them baking as it filled my house full of a wonderful aroma, leaving you salivating, in anticipation.

Homemade Chocolate Easter Eggs – My Mom's Old Fashioned Recipe!

It is time again to share one of my dear departed Mother’s recipes. I really miss her thinking about Easter! She always loved Easter. As a child I would sit with my Mom while she made home made Chocolate covered Easter Eggs for family and friends, and then some. When I got in my teens I would dress as the Easter Bunny and Mom and I would go around passing out the eggs and having a great time. There was a special feeling doing this together that I will never forget!

Here is the recipe!

5. Dip chilled eggs into chocolate mixture and put on wax paper.
