My mother’s popover recipe. It requires special pans and I didn’t think it would translate well for the book.
In the cookbook, you admit to going on a cooking strike after you dropped your youngest son at college. What did you eat?
That’s when I discovered rotisserie chicken. Some nights Mitt and I are honestly happy to make a bowl of oatmeal. If we don’t feel like cooking or going out, we’re happy with pancakes or an omelette.
What do you cook these days?
I’ve started cooking more fish. When the kids were younger, they didn’t like it, and here we live in Boston where it’s fabulous. We’re also on a green drink kick and very health conscious. I make three to five vegetable sides when I cook dinner now: green beans, boiled beets, roasted sweet potatoes. It’s very different than the way I cooked when the kids were young.
Is there a vegetable you don’t like?
Eggplant. Neither one of us will eat it — ever.
What’s your favorite fast-food meal?
Carl’s Jr. We get the jalapeño turkey burger. I eat it without the bread, but Mitt has the bun.
You’ll be in Utah during LDS General Conference. Will you attend any of the sessions?
No. But I’ll be watching with my grandchildren who I haven’t seen for a while. [Two of Romney’s sons still live in Utah.]
Are you catching up on any television shows you missed before the election?
During the campaign we downloaded "Downton Abbey" and "Modern Family." And even though I don’t like the way the last season [of "Downton"] ended, I can’t wait for it to start again.Next Page >
