Strawberry Crepes
Story and Photos by Alexandro Gonzalez

With such a fast-paced environment around us, it seems almost impossible to slow down and enjoy life the old way.

Sophomore marketing major Sarah Nasr of Denton, Texas, knows the importance of taking a well-deserved break.

Nasr enjoys cooking, baking, and anything involving the culinary arts.

Nasr has been involved in crepe making for five years now.

She’s somewhat of a self proclaimed expert.
“Whenever I have time to make crepes, I make them, whenever I don’t have time, then I still make crepes.

This system works for me,” she says.

Nasr has always been fond of a good recipe, which she knows to be true of St. Mary’s and their ‘recipe‘ for success.

The learning environment and Marianist community is what drove her to pick this university.
“This was the right fit for me, I knew adapting would take no time,” she says.

Nasr’s traveling experiences throughout Europe have been important in exposing her to different cultures and foods.

She loves trying new things, but her all time favorite is homemade Italian pizza.

“It tastes like nothing from the U.S. there’s something about it that makes it special,” she says.

Since her time Italy, Nasr has picked up a lot of Italian dishes, which she says are her favorite to make, everything from pastas to cannolis.

While in France, she noticed how popular and delicious the crepe and developed an obsession to recreate that dish, while adding her own magic touch.

“This dish is so special to me because it brings back so many memories I experienced with the people I love,” she says.

“This dish can be eaten at any time of the day,” Nasr concludes.

Crepes Ingredients

  • 1 c all-purpose flour (about 4 1/2 ounces)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/2 c water
  • 2 tsp butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • whip cream (as much as desired)
  • strawberries (as much as desired)

Directions
Put together flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Combine milk, water, melted butter, and eggs in a blender. Add the flour mixture to milk mixture, and process until smooth. Heat a pan or skillet over medium heat. Pour a scant 1/4 cup batter into pan; quickly tilt pan in all directions so batter covers pan with a thin film. Cook about 1 minute. Carefully lift the edge of the crepe with a spatula to test for doneness. The crepe is ready to turn when it can be shaken loose from the pan and the underside is lightly browned. Turn crepe over, and cook for 30 seconds or until center is set. Add strawberries inside the crepe and finish off with whip cream. Makes 8 servings.
