So my kids love to make crepes.
Actually, Gia has been making crepes ever since she learned how to make them in one of her cooking classes with Chef Hans of The Palms Country Club. She was doing it the way he taught her with a nonstick pan and they came out pretty darn good.
I remembered how much I love crepes again when my friend and co-parent Bev came over one night for some mommy fun and brought this crepe maker in tow! This celebration was for the Mommas who put together the graduation party for the kids last year and we came together to blow off some steam after all of our hard work was completed. It was a fantastic night, where I got to learn some of my co-parents much better and where I can say we all truly enjoyed each other’s company.
Bev ended up leaving her Crepe maker by mistake because she was in a hurry to go home (but not until after we had enough fun for sure) and I have to be honest. I wanted to take the crepe maker out of the box and just experiment for a bit.
But…my mother taught me not to play with or use anything that isn’t mine…so I didn’t.
I just asked Bev about it when we saw each other again for coffee.
And she shared that if I was game…she would show me how to use that crepe maker and much MORE…
Y’all know I’m always game to learn something new in the kitchen, right?
So, flash forward to another get together with the same Mommas and a few more new ones…where Bev allowed us to play with her kitchen toys…
I have always enjoyed getting the women in my life together for learning something new. This is how the birth of Crafternoons came about.
All the Mommas were able to try out each of the appliances if they were so inclined to do so…
I’m a hands on learner…so I totally appreciated the opportunity to try something out for myself.
Everyone got in on the fun.
Mango crepes were made so easily. Through my Afternoon Bites with Bev and the Braun and Severin team, I realized that making crepes doesn’t have to be so daunting a task to pull off in my own kitchen. I enjoy going out for crepes…but as many of you know, when I try something, I also like to try and make it at home for my own family to enjoy in the comfort of our own four walls.
So one Saturday morning…I woke up a little bit earlier…and made these delicious crepes for my family. I had it all planned out and bought the ingredients the day before. I wanted to try making savory crepes as well as the sweet treats.
Making these crepes is even easier with my Braun hand mixer. I chose to use the hand mixer with 5 different attachments because I know it can be even more versatile for me in the kitchen.
Of course I look to my home making idol, when searching for a recipe. Classic Crepe Recipe care of Ms. Martha Stewart…THANKS MARTHA!
Super easy recipe where you just put everything in the bowl and mix away…
The possibilities are endless when you think of the fillings…
On this particular Saturday morning, I made ham and cheese, kani with mangoes, lettuce and Japanese mayo, and Nutella crepes as well.
Nino and the kids enjoyed ham and cheese crepes first with Nutella to follow.
I enjoyed the Kani crepes the most.
But it got me to thinking…especially because I have seen and tried these crepe cakes? Have you heard of them?
I think the next thing that will be on my list of to do’s will be to come up with a recipe on my own for a Mille Crepe Cake…
