Make Weekend Brunches More Fun with Crepes

Product reviewed: Lagrange Creativ' Crepe Makers with 3 Mould Stencils


Do you like pancakes? If your answer is yes, that means you’ll like crepes, too! The thinner, more delicate pancake is a staple on French breakfast tables and, while the batter is easy to whip up, the execution often is where crepe-making gets tough.

That’s why I was super excited to test out the electronic Lagrange crepe maker! This stand-alone crepe maker plugs into an outlet and heats up in just eight minutes. The nonstick aluminum plate makes for easy cleanup and reduces the need for excess butter or oil when cooking.

The crepe maker comes with three interchangeable silicone molds — one to make four mini-crepes, one to make one large crepe, and one to make mini-crepes in star and heart shapes, which is especially fun for kids. It also comes with a ladle for mini-crepes, a spatula and a batter spreader. You can also use the crepe maker's heated plate as a griddle for frying eggs, making pancakes and cooking bacon (since I keep kosher, I couldn’t test that part out!).

I loved the quickness and ease of using the Lagrange crepe maker and the perfectly shaped crepes I made, but I did find them hard to flip while in the mold. I found it easier to remove the molds once the crepes set, but since you can’t adjust the heat setting and crepes cook very quickly, you need to move fast. I also found the silicone molds difficult to clean. They are dishwasher safe, but there are grooves on the underside and if batter gets in those, it’s tough to get out. The griddle itself is a cinch to clean and stores easily if you have a spare shelf or deep drawer.

If you love making weekend brunch and you have the room to store it, the Lagrange crepe maker is a fun kitchen tool to have on hand!

Dairy-Free Cheesecloth Uses and Recipes

The other day I was picking up some cheesecloth from the store. At checkout the cashier asked what type of cheese I was making. "Pardon?" I responded. "What kind of cheese are you making?" she asked again. I stumbled to answer because it didn't even occur to me that that's what cheesecloth is actually used for!
Picking a Proper Pepper

Picking a Proper Pepper

I am all about this comfortable cooler weather. I die for this time of year. As much as I love Christmas and Thanksgiving, and all that festivities that go with it, fall has to be my favorite. I think my love for this time of year really comes down to the simple fact that it brings me back to my fondest childhood memories. And chili.

When I moved to the U.S., I was excited to see beautiful peaches in grocery stores...even in the winter! But then, I bit into one of those winter peaches.

Reading the WHO Report in Argentina

The World Health Organization's announcement about the link between cancer and consumption of processed meat and red meat made big news in my country, Argentina. After all, we are the nation with the second highest consumption of beef in the world.
