Apple cinnamon crepes

 

Apple cinnamon crepes

Prep time: 40 min Cook time: 15 min

Ingredients:

⦁ 3 large apples, cored and peeled

⦁ 3 tablespoons brown sugar

⦁ 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Makes 4 servings

1) Chop apples into small cubes, place cubed apple slices in a medium bowl, add brown sugar and cinnamon, and toss everything together to coat chopped apples with brown sugar and cinnamon. Let the juices do their work for about 20 minutes.

2) In the meantime (or, beforehand), prepare crepes according to instructions.

3) Right before serving, heat chopped apples on medium heat in a skillet, and warm the crepes in a microwave for about 20 seconds. To serve, add chopped apples on top of the open crepe, and fold the crepe into the pocket shape. Sprinkle with powdered sugar right before serving, if desired.

How to make crepes in a regular frying pan, from scratch

Prep time: 20 min Cook time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

⦁ 2 cups milk

⦁ 1 1/3 cup flour

⦁ 1 egg

⦁ 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

⦁ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

⦁ 2 tablespoons sugar

1) Mix all those ingredients in a large bowl and whisk the mixture until lumps dissolve.

2) Heat frying pan until very hot (on high heat on stove top), spray it with oil spray and, using a soup ladle, pour small amount of batter into the frying pan as you roll the pan from side to side just enough to cover the bottom of the pan evenly with a thin layer of crepe batter. Depending on the size of your soup ladle, you could use a whole ladle-ful, or less. It also depends on the diameter of your skillet. The key is to cover the bottom of the pan with just a slightly thick layer of batter, don’t coat it too thickly. 

 3) Let this thin layer of crepe batter cook for 1,2 or 3 minutes, depending on your pan (the subsequent crepes will require much less time to cook than the first time as the pan heats up even more), then flip the crepe to the other side and let it cook for another minute on the other side. This way, you cook each crepe 1-2 minutes on each side. To flip the crepe, pick up the sides of the crepe around its circumference, gradually reaching towards the center of the crepe from all sides, until the crepe separates from the pan. How to know when it’s time to flip the crepe? When you pour the batter, it will be wet in the frying pan but gradually bubbles will be forming and batter will start to dry. When it’s all bubbles and no liquid batter – it’s time to flip!

Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Geo Thermal Heating and Cooling - Standard feature at Bailey Park 55+ Community in Benton, PA

Using geothermal heating and cooling is a great way to lower your home's operating costs and lessen your impact on the environment.  Geothermal systems leverage the fact that below about 10 feet, the Earth's temperature remains fairly constant from season to season, at about 50-56 F.  A reservoir of water in your geothermal well is used to help heat your home in the winter, and cool your home in the summer.  This simple system can save you 30-70% in heating costs and 20-50% in cooling costs.

You can also claim a tax credit for 30% of the cost of your geothermal heat pump.  Click here to read more about this federal tax incentive.

 Best of all, a geothermal heating and cooling system comes standard in all homes at Bailey Park.  That's just one of the reasons living at Bailey Park 55+ Community really is "A Wonderful Life".
