breakfast time!

I tend to go through phases when it comes to what I eat for breakfast. Recently it's been crepes! I had always wanted to make them but never had a recipe until I checked out the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living and found the perfect Crepes 101 recipe. This means that in the past week I have consumed far too much Nutella, since that is my favorite crepe topping, combined with a little bit of shredded coconut. Soooooo good. I'm now searching for more savory fillings to try out. Apples with brie cheese has been one delicious suggestion...

I have honey on the brain lately... A few weeks ago I read Robin Mckinley's wonderful new book entitled Chalice. I have always been a fan of her books but this might be one of my favorites and I highly recommend it. Her characters are vivid and her descriptions are lush, which is why it left me craving something sweet. I even went so far as to research beekeeping before I remembered that I'm actually scared of bees! If you want more info about the plot please check out the link above. I hope you enjoy these honey-related links and images as much as I do.
