Crazy for Crepes

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

I woke up this morning thinking.. MmMmmmmMMm WAFFLES... But  somehow, my waffle idea turned into.. MmMmMmmMmmmmMMM CREPES...?

Ohhh boy am I in trouble...  Because everyone knows that Crepes are plain Jane until you have...

Which just so happened to be the PERFECT storm...

And what's even worse, I drenched it with Maple Syrup?!?!!!  ...and can't live without powdered sugar!!!

The guilt has sunken in...  I ate two of those Bad Boys and it's not even lunch-time yet...  OOPSIE!!  Guess it's kinda late for Santa to take back his gifts, because it's already open!!

Dessert Crepes (should have known from the name.....)

Ingredients (makes 4)

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • (I added a little bit of vanilla extract too)


Directions


  1. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, flour sugar and salt until smooth.
  2. Heat a medium-sized skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Grease pan with a small amount of butter or oil applied with a brush or paper towel. Using a serving spoon or small ladle, spoon about 3 tablespoons crepe batter into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes on a side, or until golden brown. Serve immediately.


It didn't come out thin, like the ones you buy at the Crepe-making stores, but it's thick enough to be handled and swaddled in goodness... and tasty too!!

January marks the start of my diet... So it kinda justifies me eating junk-food until then... riiiight????  Merry Christmas to all and to all a good dessert!! ...for breakfast!!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street... Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house... In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the w

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.   Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for
