  1. Do you think cassava four would work for these? Trying to avoid wheat...


  1. Awesome! My husband has been bugging me to make crepes for dinner for months and I haven't gotten around to doing it, I finally did and they were great. The batter was so easy, I think the hardest part was letting it sit for an hour before I could start cooking, but it gave me a chance to make a nice filling with bacon, onions and mushrooms. Thanks again Bergy!
  2. This is the exact same recipe that I have been using for years and years. I was going to post my recipe one day and proceeded to check to see if there was another one like mine. Lo and behold...Bergy's is just like mine--exactly--so I didn't need to post it. I would like to say that these are delicious. The recipe makes quite a few and they freeze wonderfully. There is just my hubby and I now, so I do freeze them with wax paper between and then pop them into a zip-lock bag so we can have crepes filled with all the wonderful fillings anytime we want. When my granddaughter was little she used to take the warm crepes and sprinkle confectioners sugar on them and just eat them like that. She loved it when I made them. I had to cut her off snitching them because she would make a huge dent in the pile. Thanks Bergy!
  3. The flavor was great and these cooked up nicely. The only problem I had was my crepes came out a bit thicker than I prefer. Next time I will thin them down a bit before cooking.
  4. RSC #12 listed prepared crepes as a contest ingredient so I used this recipe to make the crepes I would need. I made a double batch one day, layered them in wax paper to separate per your suggestion, and froze in zip bags in sets of 6. They froze beautifully. Thank you for the clear instructions and sharing a tasty recipe!
  5. Super easy to make, beings it was my first time with crepes I was a little skeptical, but they turned out wonderful. Thanks!


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
