GREAT CREPERS (BAD PUN, GOOD FOOD!)

OUR ADOPTED ITALIAN MAMA AT HER COOKING SHOW

my newest toy - an electric crepe maker!

my first crepe batter - basil and sundried tomatoe!


A COOKIE ELEMENT FOR YOU - SINCE I'VE MADE YOU HUNGRY

I really should be cleaning out the rest of my kitchen cupboards. Or doing laundry. Or making up a new ArtRage lesson for my sweet husband - but today finds me making crepes. Mom gave us this little beauty over the Easter Holiday. I must confess we put a bug in her ear a long while ago, hoping she might come across one at a yard sale. Mom bought this brand new for us.

We were first introduced to this type of crepe maker through our friend Italia Grasso who has the Lake Osoyoos Guesthouse B and B here in Osoyoos. Italia is our adopted Italian Mama, and she along with her entertaining husband John are very dear to us. Italia is a fervent and passionate cook and has hosted cooking shows at a local store. Italia has even developed a way of using the crepes as pasta noodles by simply slicing the crepes into strips and tossing them with whatever topping you would normally use. This type of pasta is way healthy for you, and you can freeze it or keep it in the fridge for quite a while. If you add some color to your batter (e.g. sundried tomatoes for red, pesto for green) then you come out with a very colourful healthy dish.

My friend Alison will be coming for lunch...I will let you know how my very first batch turns out. I will be stuffing my crepes with a rice and turkey filling. In the meantime, I will return to the cupboards, lesson etc, while you have a great day!
