Mango Crepes

"This is one of Pete Luckett's recipes. He is the owner of Pete's Frootique here in Halifax and his recipes are usually very good. Have not tried it yet but want to post it for safe keeping. It does not state the number of servings so I am guessing at 4. Also feel that fresh peaches could be subtituted for the mango. Preparation time does not include chilling in the fridge."

This is a wonderful site. Must say this before I start. I was born in Northern Ireland and came to Canada in 1956. I started baking at a very early age and my mother was always supportive (even tho she probably did not have time). By the time I was 12 I was competing in local fairs and won quite a few ribbons. Later in my teens I added cooking (French style) to my hobbies and still prefer this style of cooking. Now we spend 6 months of the year in Southern Portugal and have learned a lot about the Portuguese cuisine. Do prefer the Norhern Portugal type of cooking, but they have the most wonderful bread in the world. I have one daughter who trained as a French chef and worked in that field for several years. Since then she has gone on to other things. <br>I don't have a favorite cookbook because I have too many to choose from. Since having the internet at my fingertips I have certainly expanded my recipe collections. I do take pride in serving good meals even for just the 2 of us. Luckily I have a husband who is a great taster and willing to try just about anything. <br>My pet peeve is to be served food on a cold plate in a restaurant. This is an absolute no-no as far as my husband and I are concerned.
