Wrapped Up in Love

This weekend it is Mothers Day.

A time to remember Mom and thank her for all she does with a great brunch or dinner.

Last year I posted a recipe for a seafood crepe recipe that was baked casserole style in the oven. This year I am updating it to a stove top fresh made-to-order version. You can use fresh crab meat or canned.

A flat low sided style pan is best for thin even crepes.
Add a tossed garden salad and a glass of sparkling wine and you have an elegant meal fit for a queen.

Happy Mothers Day!
