they are a perfect blank canvas for a wide array of flavors. Sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, or topped with sliced strawberries, or maybe some whipped cream they could transform into a sweet breakfast treat or desserts. With a filling of sautéed veggies you have a nice light lunch. Wrapped up with cubed chicken in a casserole it could be a satisfying dinner; Or with some black beans or refried beans with cheese it could be a quesadilla style snack. With the knowledge of how to make a good crepe a whole world of endless possibilities of meals is at your finger tips.

So, how do we make 'em?
-2 eggs
-1 1/2 cups of milk
-1 cup of all-purpose (ap) flour
-2 tablespoons of melted and cooled butter
-1/2 teaspoon of salt
-In a bowl combine the eggs and beat. Add the milk, flour, butter and salt; whisk until smooth. Heat a lightly greased small skillet (6-inch). Pour 2-3 TBS of batter (just enough to cover pan) into the pan and swirl around until the entire bottom bottom of the pan is covered. Cook for 1-2 mins and flip. (To flip you may want to try out a rubber spatula. It allows you to pick up the edge of the crepe to be able to flip it over with out a bunch of tears.) There is several videos on youtube that are very helpful if you are finding yourself struggling to make them.
