FFWD: butter and rum crepes, plain and fancy
A good friend of mine gave me a crepe pan as a wedding gift almost 22 years ago. When I received the gift, I hope I didn't roll my eyes, because I am sure at the time I never thought I'd actually make crepes in that pan. I have to admit, I have used the pan for pancakes and French toast, but today, finally, CREPES!!! I have been waiting all week to make Dorie Greenspan's "butter and rum crepes, plain and fancy" from her cookbook Around My French Table, with the other Doristas. I have to admit, this recipe is awesome, super easy and delicious. A hint of lemon and orange in the batter is genius and the citrus honey sauce is light, sweet and silky. just the perfect combination. Until now, I have only enjoyed crepes either in French restaurants or in Paris. I'm not kidding. I have saved the batter for tomorrow so we can enjoy the crepes again.

As a side note, I am still trying to catch up with all the recipes and I made the “Roast Chicken for Les Paresseux” for dinner tonight...Delicious!
