Blueberry-Lemon Crepes (THM S)
In the words of Rachael Ray, "This one is a perfect BBLD." In Rach-lingo, a BBLD is a meal that can serve as breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Well, this meal fits that description almost to a T. This is more of a breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dessert. The one thing you may find weird about this recipe is the use of Meyer lemons. What the heck are they? They're sweeter than a regular lemon - think of a cross between a mandarin and a lemon. You can, of course, use regular lemons if you can't find Meyers. If you do, add a touch of orange extract to take some of the bitterness off the lemon.
Another ingredient that may throw you off is mascarpone cheese. Mascarpone is very common in Italian cooking - it's a soft, naturally sweet cheese. It's basically the Italian version of cream cheese. You can find it in the specialty cheese case of nearly any grocery store (even Trader Joe's has it!). You can use cream cheese with a touch of cream as a replacement for mascarpone, if you can't find it or already have cream cheese on hand. You'll need to sweeten it up more, and soften it beforehand, but otherwise it's the same preparation.
The filling possibilities are endless! Mascarpone and any type of berries, chocolate, whipped cream, peaches, bananas, kiwi, you name it you can crepe it.
Top with whipped cream and berries, a drizzle of chocolate, or just stuff it straight into your mouth without all the ceremony. ^_^
