What a better way to return to your blog after months of absence! Since my last post from August my life changed beyond believe! Tom set a beautiful ring on my finger and we announced my pregnancy! Our little girl is on her way and we are so excited to welcome her on April next year.
During the last months I had to get used to with living life totally different of what I know. All the changes of my body and well known morning sickness really stop me from cooking and blogging. The biggest craving was, and still is -gummy bears and fresh watermelon slices, and there isn`t much to blog about it 🙂 But being 6 months pregnant now, I am finally ready to return with some delicious recipes.
My come back recipe are these crepes Suzette! Thin as a lace and soaked in delicious orange sauce, they can give great start of your morning. The preparation might take some time, but the result will surprise you and your loved ones. While Tom was dusting our new garden I managed to make everything ready and have few snaps before we can dig in. It took me longer than I expected, but waking up at 7am definitely did the job, so we had enough time to have the garden clean, cats entertained and the breakfast photographed and eaten.
For the recipe I did my search here and there in Internet. But again I end up changing everything as per my liking and still keeping the original recipe and taste. Try this crepes next weekend and let me know how did they go.
