 What a game yesterday! We watched the SuperBowl as a family, and it was super fun.
My son is old enough now to enjoy the show and stay up just a little later than his regular bedtime.

Valentine’s day is fast approaching, and after being married for SO long, we don’t buy gifts anymore,
but I rather make a yummy breakfast for my love.

Are you drooling over these pictures as much as I do? I feel the goodness in my mouth as I write this post.
Crepes are one of my favorite desserts.

Especially Chocolate crepes!

A few years ago we traveled to Key West, and I will never forget that little family owned French restaurant where I had the best crepes EVAH! It was a tiny little restaurant with a huge selection of sweet and savory crepes. We are big crepes lovers in my house. I think if it was up to my boys they could grow up on crepes. :-))
They LOVE them. We usually eat them with jams, Nutella or with homemade fruit compotes.

Chocolate crepes with berry compote

 These crepes were made with special dark unsweetened cocoa and turned out dark brown.
If you use regular cocoa, not special dark, yours should be a little lighter in color.
These crepes not only would make great desserts but they would make a delicious Sunday breakfast as well.

Last year I shared the Best Crepes Recipe, and it was one of my most favorite post in 2013.
That recipe is a little different, but both recipes are great.
