Cottage Cheese Crepes

While travelling to Alberta a couple months ago, I tried my very first cottage cheese crepes.

We had stopped at an Ukrainian restaurant for dinner, and my goodness; the food was amazing, and I knew I would try to recreate them once I got home.

The crepes at the restaurant were served with a dill sauce, so I had to make my own version to smother these cottage cheese crepes in too.

These cottage cheese crepes make a great side dish. Serve them up with sausage, cabbage rolls and maybe a bowl of borscht and voila! Ukrainian dinner!

I think it is fair to say that many of us struggle with time management.

When you add kids to the mix chaos can abound.

From finding homework or the lost left shoe there can be a million and one distractions from keeping up with your daily schedule.

I know personally we have spent half of a day looking for the right craft supply for a project that was due the following day.

Since we were going to be up late hot gluing,

I decided to whip up some muffins with the ingredients I had on hand.

When I found the poppy seeds I knew what I was going to whip up.
