Experimenting With Crepes

Kyle and I have been wanting to experiment with crepes for some time now and we finally got the chance the other night. When we were in TX we went to a little cafe that served crepes stuffed with spinach and cheese. We wanted to go with that same feel.
I was in charge of the filling so I started sautéing chicken, spinach, and mushrooms with some minced garlic. 
Meanwhile, Kyle mixed up some crepe mix. We used a Williams Sonoma mix since we wanted to get the cooking part down first before we try making our own mix.
Kyle started out by putting a little butter in the skillet and let it melt before pouring in the mix.
It cooks really really fast so it required constant attention.
Kyle loves that I was taking his picture. hehe
Perfect flip!
Once they were all cooked I started stuffing them.
They turned out really good for our first time.
I think what I will do differently next time is to warm them in the microwave or oven to melt the cheese after they are stuffed. While  we were cooking each crape we would place them in the oven on a low temp. But they cooled really fast once I started stuffing them.
For dessert we filled them with peanut butter and melted chocolate!! Oh man, I'm hooked now!!
Hope you all enjoy!
