    Grandma Mary's Crepe Recipe


    I never met Grandma Mary, but to my husband, she was a constant anchor and loving member of the household throughout his youth.  He tells me stories of how she would make him and his friends batch after batch of fresh crepes on weekend or summer mornings and they would slather butter and table sugar on them before rolling them up and eating until almost at bursting point.  My husband has so many fond memories of her love, and this is just one of the many ways she showed him through demonstration.


    I am lucky enough to have been given her crepe pan and old little crepe book, with her handwritten recipe taped onto the inside front cover.  It is delicious and I know it reminds my husband of his childhood.  He still generally only puts on butter and sugar.  I am looking forward to making the same recipe in the same pan for my children and grandchildren that Grandma Mary made for so many years.  This is one tradition that is meant to be kept on, always carrying the story with it.  It is part of my husband's, and now my own, family saga.
