There is very little that I love more than a Saturday brunch with my husband. I always try to do something fun and especially delicious on Saturday mornings. Usually, the morning is a little slower and more relaxed, so I have time to make things like crepes. I’ll admit, I love crepes, they’re similar to pancakes, but the fluffy and light flavor is different. They also open up a whole world of possibilities when it comes to filling them. My favorite filling is fresh fruit or yogurt topped with a homemade fruit sauce. You can also fill them with scrambled eggs, meat, cheese or just about anything else you can imagine. And a word to the wise — your first crepe will probably be a mess. Mine first one always is, no matter how much I make them. After the first one, they’ll turn out perfect and delicious.
