Here is a recipe for crepes, they can use for starters and for desserts, here is the basic recipe.


2 eggs
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup plain flour
pinch salt
30g butter

Melt butter
Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in the middle, add lightly beaten eggs, cream and milk, mix until well combined. Beat in melted butter.Put in fridge to stand for 1 hour. Heat a skillet pan and then pour a small ladle of mixture in pan, brown lightly then turn. Makes about 8 crepes.

As a dessert you can spread with cream and strawberries and roll or fold over, blend some strawberries in the blender and add a wee drop icing sugar and maybe a wee drop water, strain strawberries to remove seeds, the pour over the crepes.

As a starter you can fill them with all sorts of fillings, here an Asparagus fillng.

1 340g tin asparagus
30g butter
3/4 cup milk
3 teaspoons plain flour
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup grated cheese

It is like a white sauce.
Melt the butter add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Add milk salt peppr and mustard, stir until sauce boils and thickens. Remove from the heat and add cheese, mix until combined. Drain asparagus and cut into 1 inch lengths,stir into sauce.
Cool and then place spoonful of mixture in middle of the crepe and fold
sides in then roll up.Place in an oven proof dish cover and cook in a moderate oven for about 12 to 15 mins.
Make a fresh tomato sauce, by chopping tomatoes add a bit of butter salt and pepper, and basil. bring to the boil then simmer with lid on for 15 mins., then strain. Use ripe tomatoes to get a really nice flavour.Spoon over crepes.

Here is a nice light dessert when you are trying to keep tabs on the weight at Christmas, you use Filo pastry and the fruit of your choosing.

Fruit Baklava.

6 sheets filo pastry
1/2 cup brown sugar
60 g butter, melted
2/3 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup orange juice, srained
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
use peaches from a tin or fresh, or any other fruit you like.

Preheat the oven to 180deg.C.Use a muffin tin to make the little nests. Cut each sheet of pastry into 8 squares. Line the muffins tin with 3 layers of filo pastry, brush each piece with melted butter to help them stick together and the layer them in the tin, overlaping them at an angle.

Combine the almonds, cinnamon and half the sugar. Sprinkle over the base of the filo pastry, then place the other squares of filo brushed with butter on top of the
nuts. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place the orange juice and the sugar in a pan and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer. Halve the peaches and slice thinly, add them to the syrup and stir gently to coat the fruit. Strain the fruit and place in the pastry basket and sprinke with icing sugar. Serve with fresh cream or ice cream.
