Jacob’s Ladder

I made this quilt for my oldest daughter.  It took me 3 years to complete because I hand quilted it and wouldn’t work on it in the summer.  It was just too hot on my lap.

Signs in Flagstaff, AZ

If you haven’t already figured it out, I have a thing for signs.  But only for unusual signs or old ones on the sides of buildings.  Your run-of-the-mill sign doesn’t make the cut.  Here are a few from my town.

Crepes for breakfast

I found such a good (and easy) crepe recipe.  I found it on the top 10 list for 2010 on AllRecipes.com.  It was submitted by JennyC819.  If you want to go there then click here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Basic-Crepes/Detail.aspx or you can just read on.

Basic Crepes

  • 1 C. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C. milk
  • 1/2 C. water
  • 2 Tbl. butter, melted

Mix flour and salt in mixing bowl.  Whisk eggs, add milk and water.  Gradually add wet ingredients to flour (I use an electric hand mixer) until combined.  Add butter and beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled frying pan (I like my 10″ Calphalon non stick pan) over medium high heat.  Pour batter onto hot pan, tilting the pan with a circular motion so the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the edges start lifting off the pan and it no longer sticks when the pan is lightly jiggled from side to side.  Flip it over and cook the other side for just 10 seconds or so.  Overcooking can cause it to become rubbery.

Serve hot with whatever filling you desire.

We filled our breakfast crepes with slightly sweetened sliced strawberries and blueberries and then topped with whipped cream.

Moved to WordPress

I started a blog back in May of 2010 on Blogspot but I decided I like WordPress better.  More flexibility.  It even allowed me to import the posts from my other blog into this one.  Cool!
