HOW TO MAKE CREPES

May 6, 2014

Over the weekend we stopped into a crepe shop to celebrate our big 20 week ultrasound. (Baby is looking healthy! And our tech was lovely and did not slip at all about revealing the gender. Because we aren’t finding out.)

But man, the crepe was good. The one I ordered had white chocolate, cream cheese, and cherries. Back at home, I had a new excitement for these French treats and spent Saturday working on finding/perfecting a killer recipe. The thing with crepes is, they are slightly harder than pancakes, but much tastier (in my opinion). I love that you can load them up with anything (nutella & strawberries is my fave). And they don’t leave you with the same heaviness as a stack of pancakes. Plus, if you had house guests, wouldn’t you feel a bit happier to get to tell them you’re making crepes for breakfast rather than pancakes?

    Congrats on the pregnancy! I’m not really a crepe person- I prefer pancakes. …. However – I’m interested in trying this combo (white chocolate, cream cheese, and cherries) … sounds delicious!
