I’ve been having regular cravings for crepes, lately. Maybe it’s because they’re forbidden, in my house. For some bizarre-O reason, my husband doesn’t like crepes. And, it’s no fun making a meal that even the husband doesn’t like! Oh, but I loooooove crepes. Love, love crepes. So, recently Dan called from work, saying he was having a super busy day and probably wouldn’t be home until late, so I jumped at the chance to make this delicious crepes recipe, made from scratch! My sister and I ate crepes until we exploded. And, died. I’m just a ghost writing this.
Delicious Crepes ~ Made from Scratch
These crepes bring me back to my college days. I had a good friend, who always wanted to be a chef. Crepes were his specialty. He would make them for me, then walk a mile with the crepes and a glass of orange juice, to bring me breakfast in the morning. (We were poor, college students, without cars.) As far as I know, a crepes recipe is a crepes recipe. But, these ones were the best! They were a beautiful change from the Ramen Noodles I was having for every meal of my life. And, I’ve been making them ever since. They’re like fancy pancakes, right? And everyone loves feeling a little fancy once in a while.
