“Will you stop and check on our house while we're away?

Oh, and please, pick whatever's ready in the garden.”
While my parents worked and played in fun far away places, I picked all sorts of things and had a great time experimenting with the freshest of ingredients
As I washed strawberries at the sink, I couldn't help but remember the recipe with the crepes, filling, fruit. Where was that again? Oh yes
Crepes entered my world at our swap in March when we got to meet Kate. She set out her samples, some with a savory meat filling, and others with fruit. I was hooked at first bite.
Since then, wherever we go, if they're on the men, my husband's only question is, “Which kind are you going to have?”
This crepe making business, I've decided, is an art. It takes a very non-sticky pan, and a good flipping process (which I haven't perfected)
The turnovers initially begged breakfast to me, until one afternoon around snack time I made them in a blueberry fashion.
Cottage cheese-filled them the first go around, ricotta the second. Instead of Stevia, the honey was upped just a bit. A few whole eggs thrown in.
All in all, a great snack, breakfast, or summer dessert for picnics at the park with your sweetie
