This is relevant to at least one members interests....

Landing pages are for one day (or week, or whatever). Top ten lockouts are forever. How the hell do you get to that then?

LOL - yep, I have 'a few' recipe sites.

I am not scared of those bullies at Google - they may have hundreds of phds but I have magic elves to help me :)

Interesting to see the level of residual links that are acquired by placing a link on the google.com homepage for one day

http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/uk/siteexplorer/search?p=www.google.com%2Flanding%2Fthanksgiving%2F&bwm=i&bwmf=u&bwms=p&fr2=seo-rd-se#turkey

So I get this page ranking 3 for "Thanksgiving Recipes" recipes today.  G HP link is gone, but will the residual links and domain authority keep it up there?  Maybe

> Surely these are Yorkshire puddings

Yeah, we call those popovers here. 

My mother-in-law is English and she makes Yorkshire puddings.  If there's any difference, it's that she cooks them in a pool of oil at the bottom of each tin.  Popovers are more dry.   Not that I'm Jamie Oliver or anything.

My mom always made yorkshire pudding in one big pan, not individual cups... I never saw an individual-size pudding until I went over to the UK. hehe

But popovers are always single-serving muffin-type things, afaik.

I have made Yorkshire pudding a couple times after cooking a prime rib and I just used a couple big cast iron skillets with the drippings from the meat. Awesome stuff. There are a few good things that come out of the UK.

yorkshire pudding in one big pan,

Stick in a few Cumberland sausages, and you have toad-in-the-hole.   We had it monday night :)

Ahh, but my mom's a vegetarian, and always made the pudding with butter instead of drippings... don't think she'd've gone for the sausage idea. ;) Unless she used the gawdawful vegetarian sausages she used to like.  :-X

Ah well, not as bad as oil.  A bit like using anything other than goose fat for roast potatoes.

Hey 4eyes, you getting all this?

It is how they do them in Cumbria isn't it? In a spiral.

But My local butcher does a spicyish sausage he calls Cumbrian, which is quite fat.  I am sure that is what the supermarkets do too. (yuk)

> drippings, not oil

Ah, that's surely what my mum-in-law uses then. She does use a muffin tin.
She's from Surrey.  I don't know if that makes them proper or not.   :)

Crap, is this out in the open?  she's probably reading!

All I know is that I always enjoy spending the holidays at their house because it involves crackers, mincemeat pies, and christmas pudding shipped from Marks and Spencer (they're in Connecticut now).

> "dripping" not "drippings"

excellent, I learned something today, and it's only 5:40 am.  (up with the 2 year old and the dev team in India)

> mincemeat in the US

Yes we do, though I wouldn't say it's a terribly popular dessert choice.
Certainly above your Christmas pudding on the list though.

(though I enjoy both, catapulting me straight to the top of the favorite son-in-law list)
