358. Recipes Contest: Julian Family’s “Roll-up Pancakes”

 Barrington attorney and father of three, John Julian, has a special skill in the kitchen.  Turns out, he’s a master at making crepes!  (Who knew?) Over the years, the process has become a favorite Julian family activity and, today, John is sharing his crepes recipe with us for our Barrington Family Recipes contest.
We’ve been collecting recipes for our contest since September.  Heinen’s grocery store in Barrington has given us seven generous gift cards to give away to seven winners in our contest which is coming to a close.  Once we reveal the remainder of our recipes this week, we’ll open in up to a vote and announce our winners by the end of 2013.

When John shared his recipe for crepes, which his kids renamed “Roll-Up Pancakes“, we asked him how they became a go-to family recipe and here’s what he had to say:
“Despite the fact I really like to cook, crepes are something that had always impressed me as something I could never pull off. Why the mystique?”
“Maybe childhood trips to that homage to crepe-making, the Magic Pan in Woodfield, made it seem like magic.
Maybe it was the 1970s commercials showing how easily a crepe could supposedly turn into a major disaster in order to sell Teflon pans. I don’t know. But when my wife and I got married, she was already well-versed in making crepes from a recipe that had been on a one-recipe-per-day calendar she once owned. She convinced me that I too could make crepes.
Over the years, Lynda and I have made crepes probably hundreds of times. We believe in getting our kids into the kitchen and this is one recipe they all know and love. As each of our three children grew, we taught them to make crepes too.
Somewhere along the way, one of our toddlers started calling them “roll-up pancakes” and that nickname has stuck. Now, it’s not unusual for them to come home from having spent the night at the home of a friend to tell us they introduced their hosts to the world of roll-up pancakes.
I love this recipe because it’s easy, fun and versatile; it binds our family in so many ways and allows us to share something with other families too.”
So, without further delay, here’s the Julian family’s beloved recipe for crepes.  (I mean “Roll-up Pancakes”) ……
