Layered Crepe Cake

A couple of weeks ago I saw this amazing pin about a layered crepe cake on Pinterest.  So, I decided I would make it for our ladies book club  night which was last night.  However, when I went on find the recipe or plan for how to make this happen it was a defective pin.  So I figured this wasn't going to be rocket science so I ventured to make it anyway.  And now I'm cataloguing my rocket science for you to copy my deliciousness and learn from my presentation mistakes!



This is the recipe I found for crepes when I first learned about a year ago so it has become my 'go-to' recipe from Little Yellow Barn.

4 eggs                 1/4 c water
1/2 c butter, melted       1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c sugar           dash of salt
1 c milk                   1 c flour

In a blender place all ingredients, except flour.  Blend.  Sprinkle in flour, blend until incorporated.  Refrigerate for at least one hour.  Remove from refrigerator and blend for about a minute.  Heat 8-inch non-stick skillet.  Butter pan (about a 1/2 tsp). Using a hot pan and Spray Oil, like Pam, works best to prevent them from sticking - although the first one always seems to stick so don't get discouraged.


You can 'store' them as you go by using wax paper between them as you go.  Each crepe cooks longer on the first side than on the second side, maybe about 3-4 minutes each.

For filling I used Mango, Blueberries, and Raspberries with Lite Cool Whip.


Then layer and layer - I used whipped cream on every layer and then rotated fruits as I went.  I also needed to press it down as I went because it was kind of lop-sided, which as you can see it still is pretty lop-sided.


Then enjoy - we got 6 servings out of a 'cake' this size.  It was delish!

Thoughts from A Color Run Volunteer

Well, we did it!  It's over and I'm back to my regular color.  All it took was some scrubbing in the shower and a big load of laundry!

So, how was it?  Well, we began looking like this:


and ended looking like this:


Yes - VERY pink!!!  It was awesome!

Now, the thoughts (play-by-play) of the day:

We began at 7am (actually an hour later than first expected).  When we arrived a few minutes early we went over to the Volunteer Registration tent (even though we were told to go to the color station first) and they were super disorganized.  Although they had a lot of volunteers, the check-in process was not amazing.  It's a place for some definite improvement on their part!  However, it was the first time in Charlotte and the only expectations were from the volunteer coordinators who hadn't experienced the run yet, so understandable.

We got to our PINK station - the first color station, where we were assigned and found out it was BLUE!  We were given instructions (only dip into…

I Look Into my Inbox and What Did I See?

I receive the weekly notes from the Catholic Match Institute since my unsuccessful dabble in Online
Dating some time ago (link) and today's included the face of one of my favorite priests. A man who helped me become the Catholic woman, for better or worse, that I am today. He is doing a series of five videos for CM through Advent. The first two are below ... I encourage you to watch them and stay tuned for the next three! Fr. Ananias, OSB - what an Advent treat!




When Others Despise You

In general I appreciate when people like me, as I think most people do. For me, it's really hard when people dislike me, even if I don't have to be around them all of the time. I get anxious thinking about the next time we will be in the same location and if I'll be able to just kindly avoid them or if there will be an awkward confrontation. There's a line in scripture about how blessed we are when others despised us because they hated Him first. Him, being Jesus, of course.

But is that always the case? Am I applying a section of scripture to a situation to which it has no relationship? Am I using a passage of scripture to make myself feel better about the actions that I'm going to take, to justify it to myself and others? Am I manipulating the Lord's words to promote my own agenda in the name of the Lord?

I wonder this regarding many things. Passages like "The Lord will fulfill His promises" in relationship to my relationship status. Did He promise t…
