C'est La Vie.

On this weekend last year I was visiting Paris for the very first time.

After four days of working frantically at a trade show in Frankfurt, I hopped the train through the French countryside for a weekend by myself. I had no agenda. I walked everywhere strolling down back streets, stopping at cafes for wine or coffee. I brunched in Montemarte.

I only went to one museum.

The weather was perfect for fall and I promptly fell in love with every cliche that embodies the city of light and declared Hausmann a genius in my mind. I don't know if I have ever been so enamored with a single place.

I also fell head over heels in love with Parisian crepes and unabashedly ate them every chance I could. With warm Nutella oozing out the side, what is there not to love?? This spring I'm going back and I simply can't wait. Until then, I will make these crepes whenever I have a craving for Pah-ree.

Classic Crepe Recipe:

  • Mix 1 cup flour with two eggs
  • Slowly add 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of water
  • Then add two tablespoons of melted, unsalted butter and 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • Mix well

  • Oil or butter a frying pan on medium high heat
  • Pour 1/3 cup of the batter mix on to the pan and let it spread out
  • Once one side is crispy and turning brown, flip over

  • When both sides are done, spread Nutella on half
  • Add bananas, strawberries or sugar
  • Fold and cut down the middle

  •  Close your eyes and enjoy
