Ooh La La!

This morning I decided to try and make French crepes for breakfast. I was a little worried as I don't have a crepe pan. I used Omid's big wok/saute pan instead. It worked surprisingly well. If I had known crepes were this easy to make, I would have made them years ago. Oh well. This is our new breakfast favorite. Nas' crepes were full of butter & powdered sugar, while Matty filled his with strawberry jam (compliments of Laurel) and whipped cream. The recipe said it would yield 14-16 5" crepes, where mine yielded 4- 11" inch crepes (because of the large pan I used).
First try - not so good.

Second try - I liked this one much better.

Third try

Fourth try.

Tres magnifique!
