Making crepes is a comfort food that I've been practicing since I was in high school. Being 50% Croatian, crepes known as palačinke (pah-lah-CHEEN-keh) have been a normal non-threatening snack I'm used to making. You don't need anything fancy, just a non-stick pan and some wrist-swirling practice. Give it a shot! Even if they end up looking wonky or end up a little think...they still TASTE delicious!
Have fun~ xoxo Martina
Easy Crepe Recipe (from Alton Brown)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup flour
Oil for brushing the pan
1. Add all the wet ingredients (except the melted butter) to a blender and pulse one or two times. Add the melted butter and pulse once more.
2. Add the flour by heaping spoonful so it doesn't lump and blend for 8-10 seconds. Don't overdo the blending or the crepes will be rubbery. It's okay if there are a few little lumps in the batter, resist the urge to keep blending or whisking the sh*t out of that batter.
4. Put the batter in the fridge to come together. 30 minute minimum. If you rest it overnight and it seems reeeally thick, you can add a touch of water and whisk to thin it out.
5. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium-medium hot. Be prepared to brush with oil between each crepe.
HOT TIP: Drop a little tester batter onto the oiled pan and if it burns or puffs up into a rippled looking tent shape the pan is way too hot.
6. Oil the pan, pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the centre of the pan while swirling the pan to spread the batter out into a thin circle. If it is a weird shape...that's okay :)
HOT TIP: If the batter slides and crumples up into the corners of your pan while swirling, you added too much oil to the pan.
7. Once the batter stops moving, it is cooking. You have to wait about 45 seconds and the edges will start to peel and look crispy. You can lift the edges with your spatula and peek underneath the crepe to see if it looks super pale or if it's a light golden. Golden = you're golden to flip!
8. Flip DAT SH*T!~ Oh yeah. You pro. As it cooks on the other side you can add toppings if you want them to melt. I like my cheese melty and my sugar all melty too, but you can make a stack of crepes and just build them later.
Cook that crepe for another 30-45 seconds and once it is golden on both sides you're done!
Doing all sweet crepes? Consider adding a 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract or a smaaall squirt of honey/agave to the batter.
Savoury crepes? 1/4 tsp of salt or dried herb of your choice, rosemary is very nice.

  • Pie is better than cake. The only acceptable cake is a fancy ice cream cake with some fresh hot fudge. Or at least some with fillings.

  • I haven't listened to Down in forever! You singing it jolted me out my sleepiness. On the subject of crepes: for some reason, these were just what we'd call pancakes when I was young (pretty sure some Brits still think of these first rather than American-style pancakes). I personally drowned them in maple syrup, though lemon and sugar is considered the classic. It's just a bit of a bland option next to proper maple syrup, though!

Thank you for replying, I have been watching your videos since i was in university which was an unspeakable number of years ago and you and Simon definitely bring a lot of joy and happiness into this world!

  • Hello Simon and Martina, I hope you’re doing well in Ca-Nadia 😊! Sad to see you guys leave Japan but totally understand the unselfish reasons why, gotta be there for our loved ones! I was wanting to make a suggestion for some future videos, you guys have probably covered some of this before here and there if I recall so apologies if I’m missing any of your videos that might already exist. You guys are kind of traveling and living internal pros now so I was hopeful MHW maybe 🤔 you could make some long form tutorial videos on traveling to and from Japan 🇯🇵 in a more perhaps dry, logistical sense. If not no worries, plenty of sources out there but I think you guys have a much more real and open way of sharing what’s what about real life than many others. Thank you!

  • I hate speculating because I know that you both want your space. I have a feeling that something happened oversees and they moved back to Canada so they could stay separate with their respective families. It makes me very sad. Simon doesn’t look well. Maybe there was a mental struggle. Maybe there wasn’t. But in the end I hope that you find a way to be happy. It’s odd to see a relationship that lasted over a decade crumble in front of everyone.

  • This video made me genuinely happy to watch. Just seeing you back on camera with your cute little cat ears and positive attitude really was amazing. Cheers to Alton Brown (have you seen his recent twitter stuff, it's amazing, he's even MORE my hero now than before). Perfectly made crepes. I also loved you explaining how everything was in English and French, I didn't know that at all, I will keep that in mind. I hope that your wrists weren't too messed up after filming. I hope things are going as well as they can. Love to your family, Simon, Meemz, and your new little floof (whos name i just can't remember right now). PS I was SO STOKED when I saw you setting up the fairy garden stuff. I recently watched the video of you cleaning the little figures with my roomie, it was like ASMR cozy vibes hehe. I can't wait to see how the garden grows!

They sharpened the dull knives without telling us and I put my full force into cutting a bagel (bc the knives were always dull) and sliced neatly through my pinky finger. Cut the artery and nerves and knicked the bone. Full anime style blood squirting. Never got the feeling back in my pinky but the scarred tissue somehow hurts like hell!
