Happy Mardi Gras!  To celebrate, make some crepes.  This is something that sounds difficult and is impressive to guests, but is actually very simple to make.  The batter is sturdy enough to not break apart when you flip it in a pan.  This crepe recipe is perfect as a dessert or a fancy breakfast.  Serve with fresh fruit, cream, a bit of chocolate, cinnamon & sugar, etc.  I didn't actually make these today but that doesn't mean you shouldn't!  Bon appetit!

Sweet Crepes
(serves 8)

4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/3 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

      In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, flour sugar and salt until smooth.
     Heat a medium-sized skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Grease pan with a small amount of butter or oil applied with a brush or paper towel. Using a serving spoon or small ladle, spoon about 3 tablespoons crepe batter into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes on a side, or until golden brown. Serve immediately with toppings of choice.
