What a fun, easy and fancy dessert to eat in minutes. I love having extras in the frig for a quick treat! Pam
1 1/2 c hard white wheat flour
1/8 t. salt
5 eggs (we use 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites)
2 c milk (soy works well)
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c butter melted (Smart Balance is good)
1 t. vanilla
Combine all ingredients and mix well with a blender or whisk.
Heat a large skillet to medium (I use a 12" for large crepes), lightly grease, pour about 1/4 cup in the middle, depending on size of pan and spread thinly with a spatula or a crepe stick. Do this quickly as it will begin to cook immediately and can be hard to spread otherwise. The crepes can be very thin as the egg mixture is very strong. Cook about 1 min. on each side.
Filling: endless ideas! We enjoy plain Greek yoghurt with strawberries and on the top, light whipped cream drizzled with Hershey's chocolate syrup. YUM!
These crepes are also yummy all by themselves. Cook a little longer until crisp and they're similar to some European cookies.
Carrot Veggie Marinade from Pam
(This is great to sprinkle on a salad or into sandwiches or eat alone. Prepare the night before)
2 lbs. sliced carrots
2 sliced onions
1 sliced green, red or yellow pepper
1 cup celery
1 can tomato soup
3/4 c. vinegar
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil
1 tsp. worstershire sauce
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
Steam veggies about 6 mins. Combine remaining ingredients and cook in saucepan about 8 mins. Marinate veggies in sauce overnight. Eat cold or warm.

(This is such a refreshing & healthy drink I'm going to keep a pitcher of it in the frig all summer!)
1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
5 cups water
Wash limes, cut ends off, quarter and cut out the white stuff in the middle. Do not take the skin off! Put the limes, milk and 5 cups of water in blender. Blend but don't blend too much or it'll get a tart taste. Strain the juice into a jar. You may add sugar to your liking, although I like it without any extra sugar.
Optional: put 1 cup juice back in the blender with 5 ice cubes for a more cool, refreshing and slushy drink.
