Perfect Crepes Every Time

My wonderful 93 year old grandmother (we called her Noni) passed away peacefully over the weekend.  She was elegant and glamorous and loved to entertain.  One of her recipes that she made for my brother and I when we were kids were perfect crepes.  She would make them for breakfast and we always called them "Noni's omelets."  Her recipe is simple and you can fill them with all kinds of wonderful things.  Our favorite was plain maple syrup but my kids love strawberries and whipped cream.  So this weekend we made her specialty, remembering at the same time what a wonderful grandmother she was.

Perfect Crepes
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons sugar

Blend everything at high speed in blender.  Let stand 2 hours or overnight for best results.  If your like me and fail to plan ahead it's OK to skip the standing part.  
Heat nonstick skillet and pour batter to thinly cover the bottom.  When the edges begin to brown flip crepe and cook other side for about 30 seconds more. 
Fill crepes with strawberries, blue berries, chocolate syrup, maple syrup or anything else that sounds wonderful to you.  Enjoy!
