Before I met Kate, I'd never eaten a crepe

Now, wherever I go, if they're on the menu, that's what I order
The only question being, Whatever to fill them with?
They made their debut appearance at our food swap in March – Food From Around the World
I was lucky enough to bring home one of each. A sweet and a savory. I ate them at each of my meals the next couple of days until they were gone
True story; they were THAT good
The thing about it is, they're quite simple, ingredient-wise. A thin batter similar to that of a pancake and nothing complicated in the filling
Let's just say; I've developed a healthy reverence for this crepe making business. It's all about technique. A feel for the batter, prepping the pan, so they don't stick. Not to mention the flip
Good heavens, the flip
If you ever lucky enough to come to a swap where she brings them, you're in for a real treat!

(ps: Love her idea of a crepe party! Note to self, talk to my husband. A housewarming party with good friends, crepes, and wine?)
