Julie & Julia Inspirations

I saw Julie & Julia today! It was very cute. I love how movies circled around cooking always inspire me to bake. So in honor of Julie & Julia, I made crêpes! The recipe is as follows:
(From the Joy of Cooking Dessert Book by: Irma S. Rombauer & Marion Rombauer Becker)

French Pancakes or Crêpes
Sift: 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Resift with: 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
Beat: 2 eggs
Add and beat:
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or 1/2 t grated lemon rind
*Heat your crêpe pan and add about 1/2 cup of batter; making a circular motion to spread the batter evenly. Cook until slightly brown on one side and on the other has brown speckles. ENJOY!*


  1. I know what you mean! I loved this movie so much and I had such a strong desire to cook after watching...:)

  2. I loved that movie! I saw it with my husband and he even liked it too! Meryl Streep is such a great actress. And we LOVE crepes... I think we eat it too much...hahah It's so hard not to!

  3. I looove crepes! You're definitely inspiring me to make some! I love mine with Nutella :-)

  8. I'm craving crepes now, maybe that's my dinner sorted ;)

  9. Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm glad you did - I'm really loving your blog. I love a bit of Bonnie Tyler! Holding Out for A Hero is a great song - it really gets me going when I need some energy! I also love Total Eclipse of the Heart (though have you seen the video? Weeeird!). xx

  10. Hehe yes isn't Bonnie Tyler the greatest? I should do a post about her.. without that music video. I agree with Red Boots it was kind of out there!!

  11. Oh I agree, Julie & Julia was a great movie! I left the theater wanting to throw a dinner party!

  12. Hi Jessica...can't wait to see this film. Thanks for the recipe, and for stopping by over at elenabella – so nice to discover your blog!

  13. I have yet to see this movie and I can't wait to do so!
    Thank you for the recipe. I tried crepes once and unforntunalely, they weren't grand (but I'm sure it was because the two cooks didn't really know what they were doing).


Go ahead, leave a comment! I love 'em!
