Summertime Crepes

Yes, we like to think we are great connoisseurs of crepes. 
Since Brett served his mission in Paris, we sometimes have "French Nights".
Most of the time they involve his to die for, legit, French crepe recipe, strawberries, bananas, jams, and a WHOLE LOT of Nutella.
Honestly I could shovel those things into my mouth all night long. 

Last night I decided to venture out into the "savory" crepe land, which actually turned out to be quite divine.
I used a recipe from "Eating Well" (found here), but put my little spin on it (see recipe below).
DE-lish.
It turned out for a fun "Crepe Night, Date Night" with yummy summer time and sweet goodness!


French Crepe Recipe

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Milk
3 Eggs
3/4 Cup Sugar (add less sugar if making savory crepes)
2 Tsp. Salt
 2 Tsp. of  vanilla for flavor if desired

STEP ONE
Add the flour, sugar, and salt to a mixing bowl. Add eggs and mix.

STEP TWO
Add the milk to the mixture little by little while mixing.
(you can warm the milk to avoid lumps, but don't boil it).

STEP THREE
Pour batter onto hot sauce pan (butter or oil beforehand so batter does not stick).
Turn pan so batter evens out into a circular crepe. 
As edges begin to bubble, flip.
Once crepe is cooked on both sides, remove from heat.
