“This jasmine in the July night is a song for two strangers who meet on a street leading nowhere. Who am I after your two almond eyes? the male stranger asks. Who am I after your exile in me? the female stranger asks. Well then, let us not stir the salt of ancient seas in a remembering body. She was re-creating his warm flesh, and he, hers.” – Mahmoud Darwish, “Night That Overflows My Body.”

Straight up, Happy New Year! I’m here with a new recipe for Brown Butter Rye Crêpes with Whipped Chesnut Créme and mixed musings on meaning, intentions and fresh starts.

It seems that happiness truly does depend on a delicious breakfast… and my happiness is akin to a freshly flipped crepe straight from the pan.

For me, beurre noisette (or burnt butter) crepes are the ultimate sinful and special breakfast treat. These crepes bring sweetness to any morning and make the rest of a day seem so much more bearable.
