     It’s fun when the gang has guests sleepover!  When the kids were little, sleepovers were very carefully planned.  They tended to be full-blown productions, loud and chaotic.  Now that my kids are college-aged, they tend to be much more sedate, usually because it was a late night or a night of indulgence and I insist they not drive home.  Either way, I like to feed whoever stays the night with us and my favorite way to do that is with a Crepe Bar.  Crepes are really simple to make and if you set out a few extra ingredients, your guests can customize their breakfast!  36598405_10212621973210376_8746434386993348608_n

  The recipe is a basic one, you can find anywhere on the internet, reproduced here for your use.

                                       Crepes

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1/2 t. vanilla

   Mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth.  Spray small fry pan with oil or melt a pinch of butter.  Heat.  Pour scant 1/4 cup batter into pan and swirl with wrist until batter coats pan evenly.  Cook about two minutes, flip and cook the other side quickly.  Place finished crepe on a plate and cover with a clean dish towel until ready to serve.  Add favorite fillings and toppings.

You can make these right as the gang is waking up and by the time they are all finished, the kids are up and eating and you can polish one off yourself.  Also, leftovers, if there are any, keep nicely in the fridge for a few days.

Happy hosting!
