Basic Crepes Recipe by

I love homemade stuff, especially when it comes to food!!!! A favorite is homemade jam prepared in summer for winter recipes. 

An ideal companion for any jam is crepes. Crepes are so good that there are some restaurants devoted to crepes. Crepes with honey, crepes with chocolate, crepes with jam, crepes with fresh strawberries, crepes with strawberry sauce, crepes with cream, and the list goes on and on.

Today, I want to share with you my basic crepes recipe. These crepes are good for salty and sweet garnishing plus you can prepare your crepes beforehand and freeze them for time of need. Just make sure to lay a layer of wax paper between the crepes, then wrap them well and freeze.
