Please join me in welcoming the classy, charming and always positive Barbara Wallace to our holiday blog party today.
What do you like to make, bake or create or purchase for the holidays, Barbara?
Every year, our family celebrates Christmas morning by making crepes. It’s a fancy sounding dish that is actually pretty easy to make. The key is to have a hot pan and to watch them closely because they cook very quickly.
1 cup flour (our family uses King Arthur gluten free)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoons cooking oil
¼ teaspoon salt
Beat until blended. Heat a lightly greased 6-inch skillet. Spoon in about 2 tablespoons of batter, lift and tilt skillet to spread batter. Brown on one side only. Remove from heat.
Our family likes to eat them several ways. My husband and son fill them with jelly and roll them up. I like to drizzle mine with lemon butter and confectionary sugar like German pancakes. And my son’s girlfriend likes to fill them with Nutella. No matter what you fill them with, they taste terrific. Just don’t eat too many or you’ll be too stuffed to enjoy Christmas dinner!
Do you have a special military connection, Barbara?
I don’t have anyone serving overseas…yet…but my son is a 3rd year ROTC cadet. He’ll be commissioning in the spring of 2016, and, if he has is way, will be seeing active duty that fall. Therefore, my heart is with all the parents who have a child far away from home this holiday season. I understand the special combination of pride and worry they must be feeling.
Thanks for stopping by today, Barbara!
