Mother's Day Crepes

Sunday, May 9, 2010
Let me start by saying, I love my mom=) Yupp Mommy you're pretty awesome. She's kinda my bff, like for realz. We're super tight and share so much. Especially our love of food. If I didn't have her in my life, my passion for food would be ka-put! She's helped me to blossom my dreams in the kitchen and seriously always puts up with my temperamental nature. When recipes go astray, she helps me reign them back in and look on the bright side. Plus, she'll eat ANYTHING I make. I can't say that for everyone else in my family... We both share this love of food and that's a bond I really don't get to form with others. We are connoisseurs, gourmands, hungry women, who love food, but most importantly each other.


So for my mommy, I asked her what she wanted for her Mother's Day breakfast. Of course I already knew. Strawberries. DUHHHHH. And crepes. Beautiful, light, delicate crepes.

I got up early and went to work on these babies. I made them all first, then called my mom down to start eating. They were DA BOMB! Unfortunately for me, my sister hadn't woken up yet, and my mom and I had finished off the whole batch, so I had to make a whole other batch for her. Grrr... but now I'm a crepe master, and she loved loved them!


Basic & Delicious Crepes
found here

1 cup all-purpose flour2 eggs
1/2 cup milk1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
* I actually just put it all in a blender. It's easier for cleaning up and pouring into the pan. Just make sure you don't have globs of flour stuck on the sides. You've got to pulse!2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
