Breakfast Crepes

Good Morning!

My Saturday is off to a great start, how about yours? It's almost noon but I'm still in my PJs, sipping on a soothing cup of coffee and full from a sinfully delicious breakfast. 

Here's the quick and easy recipe for delicious breakfast crepes, my way!


In a blender crack three eggs, add 3/4 cup of cold water, 1 cup of milk, 3 tbsp of melted butter, 1 heaping cup of flour and a tsp of almond extract. If you feel the batter is too thick, add a touch of milk.

See? How easy is that.

Blend the mixture well and let it sit in the fridge for as long as you can. An hour in the fridge will allow the bubbles to escape and strengthen the batter so it won't crack while cooking. The batter will keep in the fridge up to 48 hours, so this is a great breakfast to prepare in advance of a busy weekend!

In a butter coated, nonstick frying pan on high, pour just enough batter for a thin, even layer. It won't take long to cook through, and when you can easily move it around the pan it's ready to flip. At this point the crepe is ready, so a few seconds on the flipped side is enough.

Roll and fill with toppings of your choice, but sugared strawberries, whipped cream and maple syrup is where it's at.

It's Written In Stone.

I visited her grave yesterday for the first time in a long time. It was August 8th, her Birthday, and I had spent the entire day thinking about her and working up the courage to pay her a little visit. It's hard for me to go there, but I knew it would be a good place to be alone with my thoughts and a safe place to talk out loud.

Standing over her grave, I thought about all the things we would have in common if she was still here. Her being twenty-three and me twenty-six, I know we'd be the best of friends - no different than before. I thought about how she would celebrate her big day and knew it would start with Eggo Waffles soaked in syrup while she watched A Baby Story, A Wedding Story and then What Not To Wear. She would have come up to our pool or gone down to the beach where she'd sit with her favorite book, a bag of Munchies and a cold can of Nestea. She'd be listening to her favorite music in her van and dreading any kind of party Mom was planning because she h…

Mornings. The Struggle Is Real.

He wakes up before his alarm clock and instantly rises to his feet. He doesn't wait for the alarm just so he can hit the snooze button three times, or stretch, rub his eyes or take a few minutes to process that it is now morning. He jumps out of bed. No matter how little sleep he had he appears rested, energized and ready to tackle the day. He lets OB out for a pee, throws the lazy dog back into our bed and hops in the shower. He makes a trip downstairs to freshen his clothes in the dryer and comes back upstairs to iron his outfit. He may pack himself a lunch, make a cup of coffee, and may even sit in front of the television with a bowl of cereal.


For the life of me I have tried to rise and shine, but I just can't. I have even set the alarm on my tablet to wake me with a motivational message. Good morning, Rachel. It's a new day! Get up, make coffee, exercise! I have prepared a lunch the night before, gone to bed early, set out clothes, pre-set the coffee pot to brew…

Our Kitchen Makeover - Before & After

What I am about to say, I say with great certainty. If you and your spouse can get through a major home renovation project, you can get through just about anything.

Back in early November we set out to create the kitchen of our dreams. I had pinned enough ideas to design ten kitchens combined, all the materials were purchased, the job was quoted and within our budget, and finally all the more important home projects were behind us. This took having to accept that insulating our basement and installing an energy efficient heating system was more important than new cabinets and more counter space - which wasn't particularly easy for me. 

The goal was bigger and brighter. The original kitchen had only one tight corner you could work on, a low hanging microwave and one sink. It consisted of thirty year old hardwood floors that were scuffed and damaged by water among other spills, oak cabinets that aged to an unpleasant shade of yellow, warped laminate counter-top with a dated wood de…
