crepe crêpes



Its time for the long awaited crêpe post, funny part is that if I showed the clock the entire process took about an hour, thats right only one hour but days and days of procastination, and then over two hours to format and post, the longest part was making the video 'ready'. You can use any filling you like from nutella to tuna they are the perfect vehicle for whatever it is that drives you. Once again it is a crew of 1 (me) chief, cook and videographer and I dont have the luxury of multiple takes, what you see is what you get. All that being said I think it came out ok. Did I mention that trying to cook and document simultaneously is not easy? (that is code for please ignore my little mistakes, and the wound on my thumb from a couple days ago) OK just checking.



Its a little longer than my previous videoes but this one had to be in order to get the crucial info in there, I hurried.

Here are some 'outakes' of which I have few.


'Few' isnt that funny. I have many. Look how macerated the mint is, why you might ask - it is because it came from the freezer where I had saved it for just this occassion not thinking it would look so....'macerated' not good. Eggs, seems ok but what is that 'fleck' on the edge...that 'particle' on the sink ledge....and the ribs - well I posted outakes of the ribs as the good stuff and these are the ones I didnt use or couldnt since I had not made them yet....I kept making ribs all night -the snack- was the beginning and these are cold from the fridge - leftovers.

'nuff said' I cant even remember my own ingredients.
I need to fire me since I am my own worst critic.

These look so simple...I think I ight have to try it...esp. with the gorgonzola, which you totally turned me on to.

beth: liar...really you have that plate? I only have one and I just got it at a thrift store only two days ago..I also got a matching little bowl - a monkey dish - you know the small, small one...this is like the twilight zone...

these are more than simple... drizzle the liquid hersheys over the sweet ones..even the gorgonzola one it is even better...I forgot...or make your own chocolate sauce if you are ambitious

Nice video! You gotta send these tapes you're making to the Food Network- I think they'd give you an audition!

Claudia said...

* drools * Dude, you rock. You can feed me any day. Preferably nude. But that's a negotiable term, just sayin'. ;)

doggybloggy said...

buffalo: thanks...believe me the thought has crossed my mind...

claudia: whos nude?

Claudia said...

I think Buf is right, you SO should submit your tape to the FN (not nude though, save that for me!). :)

doggybloggy said...

I think naked chef has been played out already...

dog: bread crumbs and onion aint gonna help my salmon, ok? it is just disgusting...no matter if it's pale or not!!!

doggybloggy said...

debbyd: :]p

Emiline said...

What was that beeping?

Good video. I liked it. The crepes looked really good. They were nice and thin. I always get em' too thick when I make them. Then they're more like pancakes.

Dana said...

I never even considered Gorgonzola and honey, but it really should be a wonderful combination, although I'm still drooling over the seafood crepe. The one thing I miss living in the Midwest is fresh seafood.

doggybloggy said...

emiline: the microwave...... beep..beep beep

you have to beat the eggs in to submission...lightly beaten and they fluff....

dana: it 'should' and it is (gorgonzola) and I bet this isnt the first time you did or did not 'consider' but all that aside fresh is relative...

I get super fresh and when it isnt I get all cranky...then I 'project'on the 'vendors' but all they get is whats 'delivered' so it does go round and round

Kitt said...

What's your address? I'll be right over.

pinknest said...

fantastic! the crepe video is here. what are all the funny noises in the background? i haven't had a seafood crepe before!

doggybloggy said...

kitt: NYC

pinknest: lego star wars on gamecube...funny that you 'spotted' them

Bina said...

Wow, you make it look so easy! So how high do I have to have the heat on the stove, and how long on the first side do you fry the crepe???

My God, it just looks so good.

Anette said...

You know, when I make pancakes here in Norway (one of my sons favourite)they look like your crepes, thin and big, not thick and small like your pancakes. We have blueberry/strawberry/applejam inside them. I serve tomatoe or pea soup, and we eat that before or after the pancakes. (or like I do, I eat the pancakes and the soup together. (salt and sweet)one spoon of soup, then one bite of pancake. We eat this for dinner, a popular dish for the young Norwegian population!

doggybloggy said...

bina: medium high heat and they cook for only about 3 minutes total

anette: that is interesting to know - yeah our 'pancakes' are a lot more fluffy..

debbyd said...

you've got groupies.

gorgonzola is perfect cheese. It needs hardly anything to compliment it. Honey is a good one and chopped walnuts. I actually make a sauce with all 3 + a tiny dash of cayenne pepper and drizzle over pasta and i make a bruschetta with all 3 too :)

doggybloggy said...

debbyd: you are right about gorgonzola only problem is I am allergic to walnuts....my one food weakness...

Tanya Kristine said...

hey meat sandwich...dont have time to watch your video but had to call you that ; )

will watchey later.

Tanya Kristine said...

oh and you're probably not allergic to walnuts but instead the coating. try soaking them for 24 hours in water (changing the water in the beginning every 2 hours) and you will be AMAZED at the flavor...

doggybloggy said...

tk: are you sure about the soaking thing..I have never heard that..

Tanya Kristine said...

why is the milk brown?

Tanya Kristine said...

and yes...try it with just one nut. but eat it in the emergency room just in case.

doggybloggy said...

TK: canned milk for the crepes and browned butter with cream for the seafood part...we dont ususlly have milk around but we do have canned milk.

the walnut thing gives me an itchy tongue...I never eat past the itchy feeling so I dont think the emergency room is necessary...thanks for the tip...I will try it.

I haven't visited your site in a while. I love this video. I always get so hungry every time I stop by for a visit.

Joy said...

I used to cook when I was married and when my son was still at home. Since I've been living by myself, not so much. I eat out a lot and cook what's easy and quick. You're inspiring me to take it up again. I'll invite friends over to enjoy it with me.

I'm coming back here often and will check out the archives to read and watch the how-to's. Those crepes look delicious - all of them!

I like your voice, too.

Debby said...

i guess itchy tongue is better than hairy tongue. eww i've heard the walnut thing too tk shares. i have no nut problems
