Tiramisu Crepes – Easy and delicious Breakfast

A breakfast dish for your loved ones…

I seldom make anything that is drool worthy for breakfast. I am not a breakfast person, not even on weekends. On the other hand, my husband loves to start his day with a delicious breakfast. I have rejected almost all his request for a killer breakfast. Honestly, I get mad at him when he asks for a home cooked breakfast as it’s hard to negotiate with my brain in the morning. By the time my brain comes along my way it would be time for lunch and I’ll be seen busy experimenting in the kitchen.

Having said that, for our wedding anniversary a few weeks ago I tried to get out of my morning comfort zone. After a few moments of tug of war with my heart and brain, finally I succeeded in whipping up a delicious breakfast for my man. Seeing the tiramisu crepes on the breakfast table, he almost screamed with joy and gobbled up effortlessly. After emptying the plate he looked at me and I understood that particular look. That look meant: “It would be nice if you could make breakfast like this everyday”. And I gave the look which said “No way”. Gave him these flowers freshly plucked from my garden along with a warm hug and wished a happy wedding anniversary!
