  1. It’s funny how little things can be so different from country to country – I never would have thought of having crepes for dinner, but now I think I’m going to have to try it! And I love how you added the spinach. Does it impact the taste much? Of course, even if it did, it still sounds delicious to me!

  2. You are a genius!!!!!! I am definitely trying on my 6-yr old! I love your healthy approach to European dishes. I know how hard it is to come up with a recipe that will be healthy and taste good too. Thank you for your hard work!

  3. You are very sweet!!!! I am really glad that I found your site. I love your recipes and have many of them marked to make it for later. My little one and I have been very sick for over a month. No appetite, lots of tea with honey and ginger, and warm milk with honey. The flu this year has been bad. I was also having a lot of dizziness and have been feeling weak to a point of exhaustion. I just thought that it was sleep deprivation but it turned out that my body is dangerously low in iron. So, as we’re slowly recovering. Your pictures look so good and appetizing that my little one agreed for me to make your smoothie and these pancakes for her. 🙂 Double yes, since it has a lot of spinach (iron). Thank you again for your hard work!
