"Okay... Sherlock Holmes was really good. But there was one really big problem I had with it and it needs to be resolved: is Robert Downey Jr. or Jude Law the hotter of the two?"
I, or course, would choose Downey, but it is a very close competition. My mom said, "Duh...Jude Law." So I suppose this is one of the movie's questions that just cannot be answered.
Anywho..something you should know about me..I love breakfast! Especially sweet breakfasts. So I have decided to tackle the deliciousness that is called crepes.
I decided to start with this recipe from Allrecipes.com.
However, I forgot to read the directions and kind of just threw all the ingredients together, but luckily it still turned out fine. This recipe is also supposed to make 4 crepes but I used a lot more batter than called for for each crepe because the first one was so thin that it just ripped apart when I pulled it out of the pan. I suppose if I had greased it perfectly it would have came out better, but anyway I guess I just like my crepes thicker. So for me..this recipe made one super-thin broken crepe and two perfect ones.
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons butter, melted
1. Sift together flour, sugar and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs and milk together with an electric mixer. Beat in flour mixture until smooth; stir in melted butter.
2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 2 tablespoons for each crepe. Tip and rotate pan to spread batter as thinly as possible. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
I then filled my mom's with some cinnamon sugar, pecans and coconut. For mine, I sliced up a banana in thin slices (length-wise) and heated up a skillet over medium heat. I sprayed with nonstick spray and sprinkled a cinnamon sugar mixture on one side of the bananas. Then I put then into the skillet sugared side down and let them grill for a few minutes while sprinkling the other sides with more cinnamon sugar. Then I flipped them and let the other side caramelize. Then I just laid them on my crepe and folded it over. We sprinkled them with powdered sugar to be all fancy and ate with maple syrup...because quite frankly, I have an unhealthy obsession with maple syrup and would put it on ANYTHING if I could. I tell you..I'm as bad as Will Ferrell from Elf. But we won't go there, because crepes are a perfectly normal thing to put syrup on.
Enjoy these gorgeous pictures and fire up the skillet.
