Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You're right.  I did hate to hear that.

Well Izzy, would you like a good recipe and you can then get all the crepes you want without leaving LA?

Absolutely!  Will you send a good cook, too?

Well, when I come I will ;-)
Seriously though, you don't need a good cook for crepes, it's very simple. Provided you don't eat the first one. It's a law of physics I guess, but the first one is ALWAYS a failure (I don't know whether it's because of the distribution of temperature or the unnevenness of the fat in the pan, but you'll notice it when you try).

Other than that, it's just about putting the right quantity into the pan, spreading it, then when it is dry enough to detach easily, change side for a short while and it's done. Then add whatever you like to it.

Mmm, there is ONE other trick though: don't confuse your salty preparation with your sweet one. It could give a rather strange taste if you were to put jam on the salty one and cheese, ham and eggs (for example) on the sweet one.
