Savory Green Chard Blintz

Chard Blintz

The chard adds a unique spin and ups the health factor of the classic Jewish comfort food dish, the potato blintz. In place of chard, you can use any green of substance. You can even use frozen spinach, just make sure to defrost and squeeze out all extra liquid.


Coffee Crêpe Cake

Coffee Crêpe Cake

The French call this a “mille crêpe,” implying that it has a thousand layers, like a “mille feuille,” the French name for the Napoleon dessert. Don’t worry: you will only have to make about 25 crêpes, but that will take some time. This cake has a velvety-smooth texture, and is definitely worth the time and effort. I like to make the crêpes and pastry cream one day, and then assemble the cake the next. If you do not like coffee flavor, you can omit it and have vanilla cream instead.
