Homemade French Crepes.

This weekend I made one of the most delicious and easiest recipes for breakfast: French Crepes! Honestly, you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already so you should give it a try. And if I can do it, so can you!

(You will need: 1 cup of flour, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, a half cup of milk, and a pinch of salt. The filling can consist of your favorite fruits and jams or my favorite, Nutella!)

(In a large bowl, whisk the flour and eggs together)

(Slowly whisk in the milk, a half cup of water, salt, and melted butter until you get a smooth consistency)

(Pour the batter in a lightly buttered pan over medium high heat in quarter cup increments. The thinner the pour, the better)

(After 2 minutes flip over your crepe and cook for another 30 seconds)

(Fold in half and serve when warm)

You can also get creative for breakfast and scramble eggs with cheese and serve in your crepe. For dinner, I have made Pesto Parmesan Chicken crepes. It’s one of the simplest things to cook and it always impresses people because it looks fancier than it is. These crepes take literally 2 minutes and 30 seconds to cook, it doesn’t get better than that!

On a beautiful afternoon in the Bay Area, the best thing to do is eat berries, read a magazine, and lay out on the lawn. Why not do it in style?

Nylon Magazine

(Brittany and I both love Nylon magazine, it’s got a lot of fashion tips we would never think of)

The weather has been really warm lately and we are definitely trying to soak it up because it will be Winter before you know it!

Berry Full.

IMG_8812While shooting for the blog a few weekends ago, Chels and I knew we needed to grab some snacks to take with us outdoors because we get real cranky without anything to eat for too long.  Chelsea had this great idea to throw some berries in a few glasses to bring with us so we could put them on the ground and know bugs weren’t going to get to them.  Then we realized these would be great party favors, table decorators, or even just a good way to display some healthy snacks.  Since it’s the season of ripe fruit, why not put some out for your friends/guests to enjoy!?

This was an easy, accidental find but a great one at that!  Surprise yourself or a friend with a healthy snack and fun wine glass to take home 😀
