Love Day Breakfast

In our house we do something for every holiday whether it is Valentines Day Sweets or Saint Patrick's Day fun trying to catch a leprechaun we always make it an event for our kids! This year I am going to be serving Crepes for breakfast. Last week we read a book to our kiddos called Suzette's Crepes and they really wanted to try them. Though I am not making Crepe Suzette (history and recipe here) which is much more "fancy" I will indulge their curiosity with a basic crepe filled with whipping cream and fruit. My kids may not be world travelers but they are worldly foodies!

This recipe is so simple and people always assume you went out of your way to make them or that your some kind of wiz in the kitchen...we'll just let them keep thinking that ;)
Here is what you will need, I am guessing you probably have it all in your kitchen right now!
Dry Ingredients 
1 Cup Flour
1 tsp Salt
Wet Ingredients 
2 Eggs 
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbs Melted Butter
First grease your griddle or pan and start warming it on medium heat. Also preheat your oven to it's warmer setting.
 Now start mixing the flour and eggs in a large bowl, slowly add in the milk and water, mix well. Finally add the salt and melted butter and beat the mixture until it is completely smooth. 
Pour about 1/4 Cup of the mixture on to your pan, move the pan in a circular motion to spread out the mixture so it is thin and circular. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the under side is golden then flip and repeat on the other side. As each crepe is done put on a dish in your warmed oven because crepes are a dish best served warm!
Top each crepe with whipping cream and your favorite fresh fruit (I recommend using berries) roll it up and enjoy!
