REVIEW:
My mother used to make stuffed crepes when I was growing up and I hated them. A few years ago, a crepe restaurant opened up in the local mall. I discovered that the reason their crepes were so yummy was actually the sauce. It keeps the crepes from being too dry. I now love stuffed crepes. My children prefer the pudding stuffed crepes to the meat filled variety. I use homemade pudding to decrease the sugar content. My children love homemade pudding. It is also an easy way to use up powdered milk from our food storage.
