My family loves these crepes served for dessert, but they would also make a spectacular breakfast treat.  The subtle infusion of flavor from the orange zest really makes them special.


  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • pinch salt



Combine all ingredients in a batter bowl or large measuring cup with a spout for pouring. Whisk well, until all ingredients are very well combined. Heat a 6″ frying pan to medium-high heat. Lightly spray (only necessary before the first crepe) the pan with cooking oil and pour in enough batter to make a 6″ crepe (about 3 tablespoons of batter). Tilt pan all around to spread out batter really thin. Once crepe is browned, (about 15-20 seconds) flip over and lightly brown other side (about 10 seconds). Remove crepe from pan and set on a piece of parchment paper. Continue cooking crepes and stacking on top of each other until all the batter is used up. (You should have about 8 crepes). Don’t worry if the crepes tear or don’t look perfect. Once they’re assembled and folded up, no-one will ever notice.

Honey Mascarpone:
8 ounces mascarpone*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey
Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together until smooth and creamy. *Mascarpone is a soft Italian cheese, somewhat similar to cream cheese, and is available in most grocery stores (commonly in the dairy, cheese, or deli sections) and specialty Italian markets.

1 pound of fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced

Assemble crepes by spreading desired amount of Honey Mascarpone and sprinkling strawberries onto each crepe. Fold into fourths, dust with powdered sugar (if desired) and enjoy!

In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
