About this time every year my friends with gardens are trying desperately to get rid of their bumper crop of squash…which I gladly will take off their hands (I have some roasting with red peppers even as I am typing this).

Here is an easy going Sunday DIY – how to make crepes – which is one of those incredibly versatile foods you can make for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks depending on what you fill them with! In the start-up I worked for in Dallas, one of our co-workers – Michael – used to make them for us once in awhile. They were amazing!
You can put fruit in them (as in the picture) – or ham and cheese; carnitas; peanut butter and jam – whatever you want to – I am particularly fond of sauteed mushrooms & swiss cheese in my crepes; or nutella and whipped cream.
