Crepes sound intimidating, but there is little to fear. 
They only require a few basic ingredients, and they only take a few minutes to make.
Crepes are essentially French pancakes.  (Crepe is a French word deriving from Latin crispa meaning “curled”)
The best part about crepes is the fillings.  You can fill your crepe with (almost) anything.  
Depending upon what you fill it with this traditional breakfast food can instantly become lunch, dinner or dessert.  
Ham, egg & cheese; sautéed fruit & whipped cream; salmon (it’s supposedly very good).
Whatever tickles your fancy.

Breakfast crepes for me this morning.  I have Nutella (!) and peanut butter is the perfect match.  Bananas are delicious with peanut butter … and Nutella, then again (almost) everything is delicious with Nutella.  I’m going to add some oats for texture and for healthy energy.  PeanutButterBananaNutellaOatCrepes:


2 cups milk
1 cup flour
3 eggs
1 Tsp sugar
1 Tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup melted butter

what TO DO

in a mixing bowl…
whisk eggs
add milk, whisk
add melted butter, whisk
add vanilla, sugar & flour, whisk 

hint: let the batter rest for half an hour before frying
(if you don’t have the time or the patience, that’s okay, start frying!)

in medium-size skillet over medium-low heat…
melt butter
ladle in ¼ cup batter
swirl the batter around in the skillet
(until there is a thin layer of batter covering the entire bottom) 
cook until the underside is golden brown (about 1 min)
add your filling, placing it along the center 
cook for another min & fold the sides in (wrapping the filling)

-or- cook all the crepes, placing them flat on a plate & let everyone assemble their own crepes, choosing whatever filling they would like!
