How to catch a man

When I was in grad school, I decided I was going to learn how to make crepes on a whim. I figured it would be something quirky that guys would remember about me years later -- remember that girl who made crepes? I wonder what she is up to now...

The hubby and I recently had the opportunity to stay over night at a local beach hotel. It was a much needed getaway, and we got to explore an area that neither of us had visited before. The next morning, we ate at a local crepe place.

Do you remember when I used to make crepes? I asked.

He didn't. Granted, I think I only made them for him once or twice. After all -- I knew early on that I had this one -- hook, line and sinker. I still think the crepes had something to do with it :)

Easy crepes

1 c. all purpose flour
1 tbls. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. milk
4 eggs
3 tbls. butter, melted

1. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients. Blend about 30 seconds.
2. Let batter sit 15 minutes
3. Heat nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat with butter. Add 1/3 c. batter to pan and tilt pan to evenly distribute batter to a thin layer. Cook 2 minutes.
4. Loosen edges of crepe with rubber spatula and flip. Cook one more minute.
5. Remove crepe from pan and fold over sweet or savory toppings.

Yum! I've never mad crepes.The first time my husband came to my apartment when we met (still friends at that point) I made him a chicken and rice dish that he to this day calls ricearonicacciatore. Yes, one word just like that. I hope that is not what hooked him as I remember it being awful. :)
