On April 26, 2010, in Savory, by satnightfoodies

Back into the test kitchen. This time it was all about the crepe. These are fun to make once you get the batter down! We started with a traditional savory batter then added some flare from there. This was a small batch and we learned a lot about making the crepe itself. It is amazing […]

On April 18, 2010, in Test Kitchen, by satnightfoodies
