Vanilla Crepes
Y-U-M-M-Y! I love this recipe. It is so easy to make. Definately a crowd pleaser. I got lots of oooh's and aaah's. I used the recipe portions as listed. I did add 3 whole eggs as others recommended. Also, added a little more milk to thin out. I added a little at a time to desired consistency. For me - it was kind of like a medium/heavy cream consistency. Everything else the same. It was a little lumpy but did not affect the outcome at all. I used a 9" skillet over medium heat. About every three I would spray with PAM. I poured a small amount in pan then moved around so that mix would spread all along the bottom. I would wait until ends would curl up a little. Turning them with a spatula was very awkward for me. Since the pan had PAM - I was able to pick the edge up with my finger and actually turn it over with my hands. Almost like a super thin tortilla. Very fast and easy. For the filling someone recommended a very simple receipe - I doubled it and this is what it was 8 oz cream cheese, 1 cup confectioners sugar & 2 teaspoons of vanilla. I actually popped the cream cheese in the microwave for about 1 minute. Then added the sugar and vanilla. I also added a little heavy cream to make it easier to stir. It was a little thicker than cake frosting. It was very easy to put the filling on the crepe. For the top - I cut about 1 1/2 lbs of fresh strawberries.

Nat and Darcy's Amazing Eggplant Lasagna
I've never made eggplant lasagna before. I made this along with a regular lasagne since I was feeding Meat eaters and Veg's. I have to say I did not have very much of this -just a taste. It was decent. It was very easy to prepare. The veg's raved about it and really enjoyed it. It was all gone so I guess it was pretty good!

Grilled Fish Steaks
I made this for a group of 15. It came out excellent. Also very easy. I had to make this more affordable so I used Tilapia. I put them directly on the grill and turned the fillets very carefully. Worked out well. Everyone loved the flavor. I made it with "Marinated Barbequed Vegetables SUBMITTED BY: Stackhawkley". The recipes are very similar so the veggies were a great compliment to the fish. I also served it with Wild Rice. Perfect for a nice outdoor summer meal. I prepared and marinated while the kids were in school. By the time we were ready to eat, everything went smoothly, easy and fast. All the kids loved it too!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
