Crepes by Suzette by Monica Wellington

I've never made crepes. In fact I think I've only eaten them once or twice on a trip to France ten years ago. When J, W, and I were at the library recently I came across a book called, Crepes by Suzette, by Monica Wellington and was inspired.

The activity here was pretty obvious; we read the book and then made crepes! Lucky for me, there was a recipe right in the book. The book itself is great. It's about a girl who has a crepe cart in Paris and we see all of the people who buy her crepes. The illustrations are what is really interesting about this book. Each person she sells crepes to corresponds to a famous painting, such as Van Gogh's The Mailman. There is a brief explanation of each painting at the end of the book.

We used the recipe in the book to make our crepes and tried a few different fillings including fresh raspberries, peanut butter, and Nutella. I highly recommend a mix of peanut butter and Nutella. YUM!
