Crepes for Everyone


Once again the French find a way to celebrate with and around food! This time with their most famous dish, CREPES!

I've mentioned before that crepes are one of the most versatile recipes in the French culinary books. You could literally eat crepes from [the time you rise!] the appéritif (appetizers), first course, main course, cheese course and dessert! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, late night snack, left overs, sweet or savory, for children, for grandparents [with or without teeth], fried, baked, stuffed, plain, cold or hot... now THAT is versatile at its height! the fact that the french have found 1001 ways to use crepes means that I'm going to serving up all kinds of recipes in varying flavors and complexities.

The ultimate crowd pleaser, I haven't met a human being who says, "Crepes?.. Buek! Can't stand the suckers!" Even the most finicky children go absolutely ga-ga over them.

And finally, the most important reason to start making crepes and incorporating them into your your meal-planning is that they are CHEAP to make and soo easy! Milk, eggs, flour, sugar... can't get more basic ingredients (except making bread) than that. Substitute any type milk, flour, granulated sugar and flour as per your preferences. What's there not to like?

Happy Groundhog Day.

Do the French have groundhog day?

According to the groundhog, there are 6 more weeks of winter.

Is the groundhog a french delicacy or more a staple food product?
