Birthday Wishes

Is it too early to start making my birthday wish list?

Both of these found by first wanting this bag:

That Mt. Hood blanket is AWESOME.

"Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish"

Please check out and listen to something.
Try out Matthieu Ricard, Rebecca Saxe, or listen to Dolby + Garniez play "La Vie en Rose".

Great stuff.

I came across a recipe for "Sunday Morning Crepes" and decided to give it a try (on a Saturday).
First I went to market to get some supplies...

Then I started on the batter, which is EASY! You just plop some of it down on a griddle or pan (lightly oiled) and they take about 1 minute on each side. I would recommend using a pan instead of a griddle, to get a nice circular shape - but I might have had such a rough time because our griddle pops up in the middle, making for strange shaped crepes.

Then you simply put on some jam, jelly, fruit (whatever it is you'd like) and ta-dahh!

Saturday Morning Crepes

I'm making broccoli casserole right now. I'm not sure if I'll even like it! Something about the word casserole usually makes me think "ew" but maybe this is another dish that with age, I'm learning to enjoy.
We'll see!

Cooking with Katie

I got a fantastic vintage recipe card holder and the highlight of my night was writing up the index card recipes to put in it.

Oh, the little things.
