Katie Erickson is my March #FPP from Illinois. I sent her a box of goodies from Tennessee! I had the pleasure of being in the south part of her state, last spring, cruising down a small stretch of the Historic Route 66! She blogs over at Sweetness Hunter. Check out her sweet treats!
The #FPP who was matched to me simply thrilled my soul! Johanne Beaudoin (a French-Canadian) was born and raised in Quebec, traveled to Viriginia as an AuPair (nanny) and married Mr. Wonderful - It's true, Virginia is for Lovers!
Jo and I share a love for both food and our French heritage. Perhaps you can imagine my anticipation of the arrival of Jo's box. And, then it did: Homemade Choco Chip Cookies, Chocolove bars, fudge and some highly addictive Saffron Jasmine Rice that I could eat every single day of the year!
Included with the Pure Maple Syrup was a copy of her mother's Quebec recipe for Crêpes! I feel like I am one of the family who received the coveted secret recipe!
Waiting until the extended Easter weekend when the family was home, the griddle begged for attention. I ladeled a thin layer of batter and followed her instructions. Just as the edges began to crisp, I flipped the crêpe... Voilà!
Feeling confident I strutted my culinary stuff by filling a couple of the crêpes with fromage de chèvre avec du miel (goat cheese with honey) and drizzled the others with the maple syrup. I'm fairly certain my soul sang...en français!
I encourage you to follow Jo's passion for writing about food at Hungry Quebbie.
Oh! Be sure to sign up for #FoodiePenPals at The Lean Green Bean before the 5th to participate and just maybe you'll be lucky to be matched with Johanne Beaudoin as a #FPP in the coming month!
