I have been craving Hermits for i went online (let's not talk about the 100s of cookbooks i have) and came upon this recipe on this blog..(a great blog doing all Martha Stewart's cookies before she graduates from college) I made them without the icing (less calories....right!!) They are GREAT!! I have made many Hermits and the candied ginger in these just kicked it up a notch...and , yes, the house smells wonderful!!!!

So Good!!

So this was Sunday's dinner...Roast Beef, potatoes, mushroom gravy,honey glazed baby carrots, and these popovers....I have to say was pretty darn good.....I think of myself as a good cook but i am afraid of Roast Beef...I will buy a pot roast and make a mean yankee dinner but to do a good cut roast has always intimidated me...cause i don't want to ruin it...and I like it rare to medium rare and it has not always worked out so I avoid it...BUT Sundays came out Great!!
