Breakfast crepes are always a weekend favorite!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Mix carefully until smooth.
Heat an omelette pan or similar and then add 1/4 c. of the batter, tilting until covering the pan. Let cook and remove from heat when crepe edges look crispy. Flip over and cook other side.
Shortly after the flip is when I add any ingredients that I want melted, such as chocolate or cheese. Then I fold over and finish assembling on a plate.

whenever we have guests, i think of two appetizers: potstickers (dumplings) and caprese. i don’t serve them together; they’re just terribly easy to make.
michael and i usually make caprese the traditional way with large tomato slices. on friday, we changed it up with bocconcini because i saw…
One of my favorite things to make at parties!!!
My juice today was SO delicious!
- one cup pineapple chunks
- three tiny lemons (I love lemon)
- chunk of ginger
- three handfuls of spinach
- two handfuls of white grapes
- half pound strawberries
I really loved this combo!
The perfect start to a great weekend!
Cheerful strawberry smoothie:
- 8 oz strawberries
- 2 c. milk / almond milk / coconut milk (mine is always almond; hubs uses real milk)
- 1/2 c. Greek yogurt (Fage)
- 1 tsp. sugar or agave
Blend for two minutes (I like mine very fluffy and filling). Enjoy!
NadiaCooks: cheesecakes with crusts of Teddy Grahams & honey.
Springform pan, lightly buttered. Grind up the crackers (I used cinnamon Teddy Grahams), add honey and 1 tsp. butter, and press them around the sides. Pre bake 3 minutes (I used tiny pans for individual cakes).
Mix cream cheese (2 pkgs), milk (1/4 cup), vanilla (1 tsp), eggs (4), sugar (1 cup - I used light brown) very well. Pour into center.
Bake at 350 until center jiggles slightly. Cool on rack, then chill covered 4 hours or overnight.
…the sale was so good!
I like to finish my steaks in the stove with a shallow bath of beef broth and butter to keep them from drying out.
Salt and pepper one side generously. Sear on stovetop. Right before flipping, season other side then sear.
Finish on stovetop or in oven at medium heat, 6 mins per side with extra thick cut until done
I’m a simple steak maker.
