Crepes

Have you ever had the chance to use a crepe pan? I just tried one out because I got it for my birthday! Who knew you really needed a special pan?

Instead of making them in the morning, I had them at night for a little dessert after dinner! I didn’t have any berries, so I spread jam on the crepes and sprinkled powdered sugar on them. Very tasty! And actually this could be a breakfast crepe, too!

Frankly, I attempted to make crepes before but without any success. In fact, the last time I had crepes, I was 16 on the day my family moved back to Iowa. The hotel where we stayed that last night in Georgia was near a restaurant noted for great breakfast food! So the morning we headed to Iowa I ate wonderfully delicious berry and cream crepes!

To honor luscious morning crepes, check out “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” sung by Ray Charles with The Count Basie Orchestra. I love this arrangement!
