After a brief cooking/blogging break to visit our families in the Houston area for the long Easter weekend, I’m back! Just because I didn’t do any cooking over the past few days, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t eat well...quite the contrary! Michael and I had some fun food adventures, and I documented them all so I could share them with you in here. We visited an authentic French creperie in my tiny hometown of Alvin, enjoyed handmade old-fashioned malts and straight-from-the-candy-
kitchen saltwater taffy at LaKing’s Confectionary in Galveston, and we wrapped up our Easter visit with a three-course brunch at Brennan’s Houston...complete with live jazz, the Easter Bunny, and adorable baby bunnies in the courtyard.
We visited my parents for lunch on Saturday at Ooh La La, a crepe shop that opened recently in Alvin, my hometown. My Dad made a special phone call a few weeks back to tell me about how good these crepes were...both sweet and savory. I knew I had to visit during our next trip home, because I love crepes...but I never make them at home. We started out with the Celeste, a savory crepe containing prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, herb de provence, and olive oil.
They crepes were made to order and served fresh and warm...such a great combo of flavors! We opted for two dessert crepes to share: Tarte au Pommes (apples, brown sugar, caramel, and butter) and PB avec du Chocolat (peanut butter chocolate chip). Both were totally amazing...the apple crepe was like apple pie’s French cousin, and the PB-choc chip tasted like a melted Reese’s cup.
