I never really knew what crepe suzettes were. I have made crepes before, and I always served a strawberry jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar, Thats how I was taught.
The History is very interesting, but had a hard time copying address, Under google.
Made this past weekend!! Delish!! Love the orange flavor!!
