Blueberry Yogurt Crepes–w/ honey & orange juice instead of sugar

Blueberry Crepes

Blueberry Crepes

Crepes

1 1/3 cups milk
3/4 cup flour
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon lemon zest (grated peel of a lemon)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend all of the above in a blender. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Put a small amount of butter to coat, and pour 1/3 cup batter into pan. Be SURE to let cook enough. Don’t be afraid. The batter will look like my picture, and then will flip easily. Everyone’s first one is undercooked:)

Filling

1 pint blueberries
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup of orange juice
Cook until berries start to break down (about 3 minutes)
Then add a mixture of 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch and 1/2 Tablespoon of cold water to stiffen.

Building
Crepes + Filling + Plain Greek Yogurt (about 2 cups)

You should get about 6+ crepes. Get a spatula and spread a layer of the yogurt on each. This is to taste, so if you like a lot of yogurt, have at. Put 1/4 cup filling for each crepe. Fold them the short way first, and roll. Dust each crepe with powdered sugar and a teaspoon of blueb erry sauce on top for decoration. I put each one in the microwave for about 10 seconds to get them all to be the same temperature.
Enjoy! Bon appetit.

Strawberry Season

ericstrawberryStrawberry season is/was short this year in North Carolina. Lots of rainy, cool days made it that the strawberries were not able to be picked until May 20th at our favorite strawberry farm, McAdams Farm in Efland, NC. We picked 3 gallons of berries, and Eric was very evil in smushing (yes, that is a word:) berries on me. I retaliated, of course, to defend my honor. We were “red in the face” when we got home.
Last night we made some amazing strawberry daiquiris. Recipe to follow. Later will be strawberry ice cream.

Strawberry Daiquiris

4 cups cut strawberries
1 cup rum
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup lime juice
Put all in the blender and add 2+ cups ice (individual taste). Whirl, and taste test. Drink hearty, me laddies and lassies! Strawberry Fields Forever!
