Fancy Crepes....I love those little, thin pancakes!

Usually when I am watching the Food Network, the Hubby isn't paying attention. However, the other day we were eating lunch and Brunch with Bobby was on. 

Bobby Flay was making crepes and the Hubby decided that those looked good. He said, "can we have that for dinner?" I'm like sure.

I have never had crepes before. Sweet or savory, I had no idea what to expect, but they turned out to be easier than I imagined and they were really yummy!

I call them my "fancy" crepes, because when you go out to a restaurant they cost a ton to get! It's like wow is that thing filled with cash? They may look fancy, but they are really easy to make and you probably have it all at home already!



My "Fancy" Crepes

3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon of salt
pinch of pepper (leave this out if you are making these sweet!)
3/4 cup of milk
2 Tablespoons of water
3 eggs
3 Tablespoons of butter, melted and cooled

I threw the eggs, milk, water, melted butter, and salt all in the blender. Once these were blended together, I added my all purpose flour and blended again. I allowed the batter to rest while I prepared the filling.

Now the filling part is where you heart can go crazy! I made savory crepes, so I added Monterrey Jack cheese, ham, and caramelized onions.

If savory isn't your style, you could make sweet crepes with Nutella and strawberries, cheesecake filling, bananas, and so much more! 

But for our crepes, I cut up strips of ham, shredded my cheese, and caramelized my onions with a little bit of butter.

I admit it, I messed up my first try at cooking the crepes, but after that I was on a roll!

The process is simple once you get going!

I sprayed a small non-stick skillet with cooking spray and poured a small amount of batter in the middle and swirled the pan around. This is key, you want to get a thin layer on the whole pan. You let it cook for about 45 seconds on medium heat, then flip it over to cook another 20 seconds and set aside. 

Just create an assembly line. 

Once you have all the crepes cooked, we take one and place it back in the skillet. Then top with your filling, then fold it up!

That's it. A fancy crepe is just a thin, little pancake stuffed with goodness!

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
