S'il Vous Plait

Jen got an awesome gift card to a crepe making class at our favorite crepe place.  I was lucky enough to get to go with her.  We had so much fun laughing and cooking and best of all, eating.  The owner of the shop taught us and she made it look so easy.  It was much harder than I thought.

My first crepe was my savory one, which was really sweet and savory, my favorite, it was Chevre and fig jam.  Seriously one of the best things I've ever eaten.  I know goat cheese seems weird but the soury saltiness of it...mmm...I just love it.  My sweet crepe was brown sugar and cream cheese with lime juice squeezed over it, kind of like key lime pie.  I am drooling just thinking about it.  I've been thinking about crepes ever since, I always do after I eat there.  I wish there was a crepe place closer to me so I could go all the time.

I've been looking at crepe makers and pans and spreaders online and I finally decided to try it on my own.  I made Alton Brown's crepe recipe and cooked them in my cast iron skillet.  It was difficult.

The first one just ripped, the second one was a little less ripped and the third one was decent but a bit too thick.  I need one of those spreaders.  I had just a tiny bit of batter left (I decreased by a third) so I made a little mini crepe.  It was delicious.  I filled it was mini marshmallows and nutella. Yum yum yum.

Crepes are so happy, like a little food smile.

The Plymouth Coffee Bean serves crepes. I have not tried them yet, but they look pretty darn good. And I have a crepe pan you can borrow if you want to try it out!
