Crepes

This post is a product of three things: 1) my 5-year old requesting crepes for breakfast 2) the realization that I didn´t have crepes on my blog combined with months and months since my last post 3) it´s Sunday🙂

I got the recipe from my baby sister when she was about six or seven. No joke. And it is the best crepes recipe I have ever tried! Simple, easy to remember and the first crepe never breaks. That´s close to a miracle in the crepe-making world. At least in mine. They taste really good, and the consistency is the perfect combination of light and moist, sweet and salty. And the best part – they work just as good for breakfast as they do for dinner or an evening meal.

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Biscotti, always

Biscotti

It is the first day of a new year, and it is close to a full year before we wipe the dust off of the various Christmas cookie recipes. These classic biscotti taste great for Christmas, but thank God it is allowed to bake (and eat) them all year! They taste great with an espresso, a cup of tea or even wine. And guess what. This must be about the only cookie recipe with zero butter or oil! But they are still amazing, so not to worry. Oh, and feel free to double the recipe.
