Better Than Cereal Crepes

I’m fortunate to have wonderful friends that are like family to me.  I’ve known Erin since we were about 11 or 12, which is the same age that her daughter is now.  We know each other so well because we grew up together and ended up being college roommates so she is the closest thing that I have to a sister.  Luckily, we also only live about 20 minutes away now and in California that’s like being neighbors!

On most Sundays, I head over to Erin’s to go for a walk, grab brunch and chat about the past events of our week and upcoming mayhem planned for the coming week.  This particular Sunday, I came over and Erin was casually making crepes for her daughter and her two BFFs. Crepes are traditional breakfast for the kids if they have a slumber party the night before.  She said, “let me just whip up some crepes.” It was such a nonchalant statement.  Whip up some crepes?!  I always had in my head that crepes were terribly time consuming and took skill.  I was honestly a little afraid of them.  Erin happily convinced me otherwise and added “They’re better than cereal!”  No argument there!

A few years ago, she said she went in search of a recipe because she felt like eating crepes.  She tried Julia Child’s cause, don’t you have to?  For anybody that sews, we determined Julia Child was like following a dificile Vogue pattern as opposed to a Betty Crocker recipe which would be the easy McCall’s pattern. Needless to say, Betty Crocker became her go-to crepe recipe.  (Note to self: definitely have a go-to crepe recipe in your life!).

As Erin proceeded to get her mothers’ inherited Betty Crocker book out, I continued to doubt that this crepe making process would be easy.  She proved me wrong!  It was easy and fun!

Ingredients

1.5 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups milk

2 eggs

2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Erin followed the directions pretty closely, mixed flour, sugar, baking powder and salt then in her mixer added milk, eggs, butter and vanilla.  It was very similar to making pancakes but this has a much more liquid consistency.  (Similar to buttermilk or even a little thicker.)

She used a non-stick skillet, which I would highly recommend.  You should still grease the pan either with butter as Betty Crocker does or with any oil of your choice.  You need to grease in between each crepe.  Erin poured about 1/2 cup of crepe batter into the pan, then swirled the pan until the batter thinly covered the bottom of the pan.

Let the crepe completely dry on the surface.  You’re using about a medium to low flame on the stove.  Use a spatula to loosen the edges of the crepe all the way around.  Flip the crepe once it is lightly golden on the edges.

You can also try flipping it in the pan with a quick wrist motion!  Have a dog around for any failed attempts!

This recipe made about 20 crepes.  The girls filled them with Nutella and bananas but you can fill them anyway you like.

In the end, there was plenty for everyone!

  1. Proulx once said that imagination develops best in people with few resources: “If you have nothing and no place in the world, imagination is an engine of incredible power.” Her fiction is set in places with abundant natural beauty but scant shelter and less love. Her characters, with their vast reservoirs of tenderness, find that tenderness is unrequited. In Proulx’s fiction, language equals consciousness. Fierce but compassionate, colloquial yet lyrical, intimate while unsentimental, it’s a map of the protagonist’s fears, hopes, despair. We don’t get the equivalent in “Bird Cloud” — no careful articulation of inchoate urges turning into compulsion, no unflinching verbal measure of the self’s fault lines.

    In short, yes, Nile Rodgers appears here, and he seems to sound just like Nile Rodgers, or, at least, a Nile Rodgers who is mostly out of date, and the vocoder appears, and it sounds exactly like other robot-iterations of vocoder, and then there is the lyric, which you allude to above, and which is exactly as stupid as a KC and the Sunshine band lyric (and it keeps making me want to ask Why do you have to stay up all night in order to get lucky? Couldn’t you have gotten lucky at 12 or 1?), indicating that this is a song assembled entirely from hitherto-existing pseudo-musical gestures.

    Santos-Longhurst also expressed her dismay at the damage an article like GOOP’s can do. “A breast cancer diagnosis inevitably leads to women wondering what they did wrong and what they could have done to prevent it,” she said. “This is reality for all women diagnosed and their loved ones. Articles like this only fuel that and lead women to blame themselves for something that they had no control over. The amount of regret and stress that this adds on top of all the stress that comes with cancer and treatment takes a toll physically and emotionally on all involved. As for women like me who are worried about their breast cancer risk, articles like this don’t educate; they simply create more fear and offer no value.”

    So where do emotional feelings come from and what do they do? ?A growing number of scientists agree that feelings are not hard-wired innate states stored in ancient brain circuits that also control behavioral responses. ?Instead, feelings are experiences in consciousness that are assembled using attention, perception, memory and other cognitive processes. And once they are present they can indeed guide our thoughts, and even control our actions. ?But feelings don’t control what is typically called “emotional” reactions―for example, freeze-fight-flight responses, or, in “Inside Out,” Riley’s smiles and frowns. “Inside Out” was correct to emphasize that feelings can influence complex behaviors based on thoughts and memories, but wrong in implying that feelings are the cause of the more primitive reactions.
