A guest post from Sally Hoffmann
Every good day begins with a good breakfast. Every bad morning can be fixed by a great breakfast!
This morning, I awoke to a wonderful smell drifting through my open bedroom doorway. Led by my nose, I followed the scent to the kitchen and was greeted by fresh crepes frying on the griddle. I cannot describe the feeling that washed over me as I sat and began to eat. The delicious aroma coming from the kitchen was a heavenly wake up call, and after eating such a wonderful breakfast, I was ready to face the day!
Crepes can be eaten in countless ways, depending on personal preference. I adore crepes with fruits. This morning I feasted on Nutella and banana crepes, a delight I discovered this past summer in Paris. Crepes can also be spread with other fixings, anything you may be in the mood for!
Here is my mom’s recipe:

If you are interested in a grown up version of this recipe pour an once of Cointreau over the crepes after you placed it on a plate. Crepes can also be sprinkled with grated cheese and maybe some thin slices of ham for a more hearty version.
The crepes can be made on a griddle or in a non-stick frying pan.
I love to use my raclette grill with the reversible grill top to make crepes. It allows me to bake them while everybody sits around the table. You can buy one at RacletteCorner
