I've been on pinterest a lot lately. By the way, thank you Alea at Premeditated Leftovers for suggesting that I sign up, I love it! Not only is it a great way to save recipes that I want to try, but hubs and I are making a playroom for Mimi and I have found a ton of new ideas that I am excited to try. So far, the plan is to paint the walls teal, the trim will be white, and the rest of the room will be accented with reds, pinks and either black or dark brown wooden furniture. I've pinned so many new projects that I'm excited to try, I'll remember to post pics as we go along.
Other than being on the computer all morning I've also managed to do dishes, vacuum, sweep, start laundry and finally feed my child (hubs is outside mowing with a push mower in the extreme heat and it takes hours to do, poor guy). Luckily, I love to make crepes, because it seems like I'm either making crepes or pancakes for Mimi. Since I've made them 50 billion times, I feel like I've mastered them at this point. :) So here is the delicious recipe I use. I actually came up with this by myself from trial and error, only to find out that every recipe online is exactly the same. hehehe Oh well, that's ok. And my toddler loves to mix the batter, which is a great way to keep her busy, away from the TV, and spend time in the kitchen together. I love it.
|Dishes. No, that's not all. My dishwasher|
was completely full and this was leftover!
|A great deal I found at Big Lots. $10 for the set (glass, not plastic).|
Just wanted to share it with you.
And these are the rest of the dishes I had to wash. Ahhh!!! hehe
There were a few tiny lumps, so after this pic I whisked it better.
|I fill Mimi's with chocolate and fold into squares. I just roll mine up though.|
I should have made chocolate eyes to create a little face. Next time. :)
Serving Size = Around 8 I believe?
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 cup of flour
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon or so of vanilla (optional)
- Place everything into a bowl and mix very well (use a whisk).
- I use a hard anodized pan (about a 10 inch pan) and heat it over medium heat (I don't need to add butter or oil). Also, I wait until after I finish mixing the batter to turn the stove on. This allows the batter to sit for several minutes. When it gets nice and hot, I add about 1/3 cup (or a little less) of the batter and swirl around the pan. I let it cook for a minute or so and flip, cook another minute and remove. Let them cook as long as you want though, I don't like too much brown on them, just a touch. Continue until done.
