Expecting special guests? Of all the pancakes in the world, crepes are the ones that always say party to us. They take a while to pull together—fun in the kitchen!—but we were wanting to celebrate the release of The Christie Curse this month and we celebrate with food.
Of course, these crepes don’t need to be saved for special events or parties. Aren’t you special enough?
During this long winter MJ was looking for recipes with lots of lemon in them and these lemon crepes are fairly light and delicious enough for fussy eaters. Hubby is not a fussy eater so he was just over the moon. Have we mentioned how happy he is that Victoria Abbott is back at Mystery Lovers Kitchen? Doesn’t even mind doing heaps of dishes.
So here’s a treat two ways, but you can use your favorite fillings in these crepes and be a hero on the home front.
It’s always good to have options and it makes life easier.These aren’t diet fare by any means, although the recipe has been lightened up quite a bit. The lemon keeps the flavor.
Add parsley, salt and pepper and chicken. Stir in enough Béchamel sauce to make a creamy mixture.
And we also hope you enjoy The Christie Curse, the first in the new book collector series from Berkley is hot off the presses and getting great reviews. Of course, recipes are included!
Victoria Abbott is Victoria Maffini and Mary Jane Maffini. You can visit MJ at www.maryjanemaffini.com
