This is a NEW fan favorite at our house. We served it with apricot jam. It may give crepes a run for their money.

1 c milk
1 c flour
6 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbl butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
With a beater combine milk, flour, eggs & salt. In a 9X13 pan melt butter in the oven while it's preheating remove pan when butter is hot and sizzling. Pour batter immediately into hot pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve with powdered sugar, syrup or fruit on top.

Crepes on a Plate

I think one of the most amazing foods in the world is crepes. But, they always seemed so mysterious and difficult to make. I found this recipe, tweaked it to my liking, and have been eating them with nutella and strawberries for weeks.

2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and beat on high until well mixed. Cover bowl and place batter in the fridge for one hour.

Pour ½ cup of batter at a time into a medium skillet on medium heat, coated with butter. Cook each side approximately 30 seconds until done.

Homemade Pizza

Ever since I was a little kid, my favorite thing to do was to make homemade pizza with my mom. I recently came across an excellent recipe and have tweaked it to my liking. My family loves this pizza.

1 packet of yeast
3/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon pure olive oil
2 cups bread flour

Dissolve the yeast into the warm water. Add the sugar, salt, and olive oil. Mix well. Add 1 cup of the follow and using the paddle attachment blend with a stand mixer, adding remaining flour slowly until dough comes together. Switch to a dough hook and knead in the mixer for 15 minutes on medium speed. Roll dough out onto a cooking sheet. Cover with preferred sauce, cheese, toppings. Bake on the lowest rack of a pre-heated 500 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes.
