I do love family traditions, especially related to cooking. In our family, there is one. It’s Sunday pancakes (precisely crepes, because i prefer thin pancakes). I can just wait for the weekend to decide what kind of pancakes to cook. And I want to share one of my favourites recipes of crepes. Today’s crepes are stuffed with chestnut mushrooms and blue cheese. They taste so delicate and smells amazingly thanks to blue-cheese.
I advise you to make the batter at the evening before, and in the morning only to bake crepes and put the filling, so you can sleep a little longer)
