Inaugurate the new year with a very special meal. Martha's puffy pancakes are a cross between popovers and crepes; they hold their shape for about fifteen minutes, so serve them immediately. Poached eggs take on an appropriate elegance when served with smoked salmon and dill bearnaise. Paper collars allow you to bake tall blueberry muffins with no batter runover. Vanilla hot chocolate, served in oversize cafe au lait cups, is the perfect antidote to a chilly New Year's morning.
