    2. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium. Brush with a little melted butter. Add a ladle of batter and tilt pan to cover base. Cook for 1 minute, until bubbles appear. Turn crepe and cook for another minute. Repeat with remaining melted butter and batter to make four crepes.

    Made it vegetarian. Substitute the turkey with Silken tofu for a tasty tweak!  -  29 Nov 2009


    Make the most of the season's beautiful fresh asparagus! So easy & very stylish, I serve it on my Wedgewood green entree plates with red napkins to add to the Christmas theme.  -  29 Nov 2009
