Okay, so since it’s Valentines and my birthday month, I’m going to indulge myself and share with you all of my most favorite recipes. This week will be all of my favorite breakfasts, next will be my favorite Chocolate recipes for Valentine’s, then my favorite Dinners and favorite Desserts. I promise-you won’t want to miss a single post…these are the best of the best, the things I crave, the things I love, and you’ll want to try them all!
My all time favorite breakfast is crepes and hardly ever are the stars aligned where I have cream cheese and fresh strawberries for the ultimate filling….especially in the winter (sorry, I’m not usually in the mood to spend $2+ a pound for strawberries). So, I came up with this filling. It’s a close second in my book and actually, my husband liked it better than the fresh strawberries. It has a nice “fresh” taste with a lot of combined fruit flavors and is really easy to whip up.
4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 T. orange marmalade (don’t worry, it doesn’t taste “marmalad-ey” it just helps to give the orange flavor)
1 T. sugar
1 medium banana
1 1/2 – 2 c. freeze dried strawberries (hydrate only half and add the other as dry)
Blend ingredients in blender.
I also know, that some people are very scared of making crepes because they seem hard, or maybe at least fragile to make. So I did a quickie (and I mean quickie) video of how to do it, check it out below!
