I’ll make any excuse to have ‘cake’ for breakfast– here’s my take on a classic.

Red Velvet Crepes (Makes about 24, 8″ crepes) Ingredients: – 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour - 1 teaspoon baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon baking soda - 1/4 teaspoon salt - 3 tablespoons sugar - 2 cups butter milk - 1 1/4 cup whole or lowfat milk - 1 large egg - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract - 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder, sifted - 1 tablespoon red food color gel - 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted + 2 tablespoons cooking oil (for pan) *Update: Because the buttermilk lends to the acidity of this batter, do not substitute the baking soda for extra baking powder.

If you add more baking powder, and omit the baking soda, you’ll end up with a heavy and dense crepe. In order to activate the baking soda, it requires an acidic substance, which the buttermilk provides. Directions: For the Mascarpone Filling:1. For Chocolate Ganche Sauce1. 2. 3. 4.

Real Food. Recipe for Health: Concentrate on seasons greetings rather than eatings |... The road to good health has led you deep into the holidays — no doubt that it can be a challenge to maintain healthful eating habits during the Christmas season when there are so many festive events involving food. But there are many tips to follow that make it easier to make healthful food choices. First, be realistic. This is not the best time for most people to attempt losing weight.
