A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

This is what I love about crepes, you can almost convince yourself that they’re not  that bad for you.  A crepe…it’s so light…those calories don’t count right? And here’s what I love about crepes, they can be sweet or they can be savory and they are both delicious. The Paris Creperie is located in Coolidge Corner, a cute little shop with about 10 tables. It’s a popular place for kids to hang out after school. It has a cool neighborhood-y feel to it. It had been a while since I was last there, and they have changed things up a little bit. They made a new menu and instead of serving crepes on those aluminum pizza trays, they now have plates. There are a million different choices for crepes. You can try one of their suggested crepes or build your own.

This most recent time we went, I had the steak and cheese crepe($6.95). Steak, American cheese, scallions, and mushrooms…mmm. Now here’s the thing, crepes taste best when they are warm. It also depends on who’s making the crepes. (You can see them making crepes in their open kitchen). The savory crepe that I got was perfect. The sweet one I had for dessert had been cooked a little too long and was a little rubbery. Don’t get me wrong, I love this place. The sweet crepe of choice for me is the smores ($6.75), nutella…marshmallows…I think my mouth may be watering just writing about them. It’s the perfect amount of melty goodness, and reminds you of why you love camping (maybe the only reason you love camping). I would recommend eating the smores with a knife and fork, it gets super messy when you get into the middle of it. It’s sort of like when all your ice cream in your bowl melts and you’re left with ‘ice cream soup’.

They also have great smoothies. In the summer I’m partial to the ‘razzle dazzle’ which is apple juice, raspberries, bananas, raspberry sorbet. And when I need a chocolate fix, it’s always the Nutella Frozen Hot Chocolate:  “Our Signature Drink – Skim Milk, Nutella, Non-Fat Frozen Yogurt, Whipped Cream”. Oh my is this drink delicious, and when you get to the bottom of your cup, you always wish there was more. It’s like a Nutella shake, and seriously, who doesn’t love Nutella?
