Holy Crepes: sweet and savoury

Celebrating light in the dark months of winter is definitely a priority especially if tradition says you have to eat crepes, euh yay dueh!

Under the watchful eye of my grandmas, Mémé, Maria statue and with Madonna blaring through the speakers I went about celebrating Light and Maria ( happens to be my middle name!).

For the occasion I invested in a new Le Creuset crepes pan ( thank you Stepdad Jan for your xmas  contribution 🙂 ) – and boy, does that pan make good crepes. I made about 40 or so and not one failed !

As I am craving sugar all day, every day right now (sooo bad I know) I decided on frozen raspberries, mini marshmallows, melted white chocolate and pink meringue crumbs to top my sweet crepes. yep Holy Crepes!

For my savoury crepes I added some smoked salmon with cream cheese and chives, a little Eastern European inspiration.

oh and since friends were out of town, I ate all 40 crepes by myself, yep I did, everyday for breakfast! and as a result I will be doing extra lengths in the pool but it was worth it! #NoGuilt
