2-Ingredient Crepes – Fluffy, light and delicate Crepes made with just 2 ingredients, including all-purpose flour and carbonated water. Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, but definitely NOT taste-free!
Hi Yo! TGIF, friends!
You guys, I just read that Kurt Cobain’s daughter is like twenty-something. Oh. My. Goodness! How old AM I?!
I still remember, I think it was yesterday, when he passed away. AND I cried! Well I cried because everyone else was crying and thought that I should, too. No, I’m not heartless. I just didn’t really know of him. I only liked the Teen Spirit song. Besides, I was still on the NKOTB-train.
But, seriously, she’s in her twenties?? So ODD! I could’ve sworn she was an infant.
Anywho. We’z old… Let’s talk about something current.
Currently I am daydreaming about walking into a Pancake House, but one that’s not about Pancakes and it’s all about Crepes. So, a Crepe House. I do love pancakes, though… But not as much as Crepes.
However, today’s Crepes are brought to you by my one and only, my very beautiful country of Macedonia. THIS is how we do Crepes – flour and water. Done. We keep it reaaaaal simple.
These treats are also called Dieter’s Crepes and/or Poor Man’s Crepes. 🙂 Milk and eggs were too expensive. The struggle was real.
When we were little, my Mom used to turn out a hundred of these (I’m not exaggerating) at a time. She would then stuff them with either honey and ground walnuts, sometimes with feta cheese, OR even minced garlic and olive oil. Best stuff on Earth, I tell you. I’d lick my fingers off each and every time.
Since this is Holy Week for us, and today we celebrate Good Friday, I thought it was the perfect day to share these with you because this entire week we are on a strict, completely vegan diet and these Crepes have saved me from starvation. Not even kidding. Can’t wait to attack that Easter Feast on Sunday.
By the way, I don’t even know what to do with myself. Can’t deal. I am so hungry! *Runs into the kitchen and makes another batch*
P.S. For the record, I’m still riding the NKOTB train. The Right Stuff 4EVA!
