Crepe Expectations

I love crepe, but mainly, the IDEA of crepe. A flat sheet of pastry (I guess you can call a crepe a pastry...right?), filled with all kind of wonderful flavors? But for some reason, it's one of the hardest things to get right! Usually, they overfill it, use out of season fruits (Are you sure this is a strawberry? Are you sure it's not A LEMON?!?!), and ladle it with too much sauce so it becomes all drippy. So I kept ordering crepes because they LOOK and sound so enticing but always ended up disappointed. UNTIL one day, I went to Japan (sounds like I just decided to take a plane there but no, I'm sure my parents did some planning) and had the most delightful crepe! It was bananas and cream. And then the second time of my crepe epiphany was when I was in downtown and ate at this really popular crepe place and I loved it! Downside was that it's far from my house (Scarborough, BOOOOO!!!!), shit overpriced, and they did not put enough fillings!

So I decided to make my own a year later. Yea, that chronology makes sense.

I had my Nutella and bananas and went wild~

A crepe, Alton Brown's recipe, I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

Generous amount of Nutella.

Bananas! (Do not quote Doctor Who again! Do not quote Doctor Who again!)

Yea, it kinda looks like a burrito...
