I’m practicing for when we move to South Carolina. 🙂 Ceth just accepted an internship there last week. We went from the mindset that we were staying in Idaho for at least a couple more years to “We’re moving to South Carolina!” in one phone call. It was too good of an opportunity to pass up and we are beyond excited to get to live by Ceth’s parents. We’re getting a little closer to being real adults now too. As if having a baby didn’t do that already.
So it’s been crazy busy since we found out we have to move in just a few weeks- Yes, we’re moving in a few weeks. We are going to my sister’s wedding next week in California and when we get back we will be in finals week for both of us. Then we will have one week to pack, clean, and move out! Daunting, but incredibly exciting. I have a secret love of getting rid of stuff too. Feels so good. ANYWAY, that’s an update on our lives. Even though we’ve been busy and I thought I wouldn’t have time to cook or bake, I’m still finding time to cook and bake 🙂 It’s an addiction and nothing will stop me! Plus, I’m going to have to keep up with all of the southern cooks.
What I love about crepes is that you can have them for breakfast, dinner, sweet, savory, dessert, whatever you want. They were the first meal I ever made for my husband. We’ve had crepes three times in one week. Annnndddd they were all sweet. As much as I love savory crepes we cannot get over this homemade berry syrup. It is delicious! I had it by the spoonfuls. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and have yourself some syrup tonight with some crepes on the side. That’s how I do it.
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 cup of flour
- 4 eggs
- 4 TBSP sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
Beat until it is all combined and smooth. Pour into a hot skillet in a thin layer.
Homemade Berry Syrup:
Yields around 4 cups
- 4 cups of frozen berries- I used a blended bag of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup cold water mixed with 4 TBSP of cornstarch
That’s it! Pour all of the ingredients in a pot and put on medium to high heat. Stir until thickened.
My in-laws like to make these crepes with sliced apples baked into them and they eat them like pancakes with regular sugar sprinkled on top. Honestly, give me any type of crepes and I’ll gladly eat them. So try any variation! Just promise me you’ll make this syrup because you will be so. happy.
Anyone have any tips for a California/Idaho girl moving to South Carolina? Any good Southern recipes I should have in my back pocket? Let me know!
