what's for breakfast? crepes

Crepes… ohhhh Crepes!!

If you don’t have crepes on your list of REGULAR meals, you really need to try them out.

SUPER easy, HEALTHY, and SOOOO good!

This is the recipe that I use… (always doubled)

1 cup flour (I use whole wheat)

2 eggs

½ cup milk

½ cup water


2 Tb melted butter

Powdered sugar (optional if you want to make them sweeter).

Mix it all together.

Heat up your frying pan and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.

(Don’t use butter because it burns really fast and makes the crepes blackish on the bottom.)

Put about ¼ cup of the batter in the pan and tilt the pan a bit to make the crepe larger.

Then just wait, the edges will get all cooked and they are VERY EASY to flip.

I usually chop up some apples and fry them in a different frying pan with some juice or concentrate, cinnamon, nutmeg and powdered sugar.

And, I cut up some fresh strawberries, if we have them, at drizzle them with sugar so they get saucy. MMMMMM.

And, we LOVE whip cream. Either homemade or from the spray bottle.

This is probably our FAVORITE Sunday morning tradition.

Try em… You’ll be changed forever.

Bytheway, love the halloween faces--I played on picnik with the halloween stuff for my birthday and loved it, but I haven't gone premium, you did, yah? so fun!!

We love crepes and have them every year on Christmas morning. We like to use fresh fruit, pudding and whipped cream and drizzle chocolate syrup over the top. Not quite as healthy as yours but oh-so-yummy. I just might have to make them for breakfast today :)

I did make my new Halloween banner in Picnik. It's a free photo-editing program www.picnik.com. Nope, I didn't go premium, i just used the free part. to make it fit my blog title spot, i had to resize it to 1175 bites or something like that.

and, my two column layout is just Mimima Stretch under the template part of blogspot. it wasn't hard, but it did mess up all my stuff.
