  • Basic Crepe Batter

    March 21, 2016

    This is a go-to crêpe batter recipe. It works with sweet or savory fillings. The crêpes can be made a day ahead of time, stacked and refrigerated or frozen for up to two weeks. After that they become crumbly, but still work. Make sure you put them in an airtight zip bag with all the air pressed out.

    February marks serious soup season in my home. I love having frozen soups for quick dinners and gifts for those in need of a “soup hug.” This is an amazingly rich and satisfying soup. You can blend it to make it all creamy delicious or leave it chunky. The grocery stores sells bread bowls, or boules, if you want to serve the soup that way. I love it just the way it is!
