Meaty Spinach Crepes

Sheri Zarnick


Another farmhouse Wall recipe..those of you who follow me know the incredible story of the treasure of recipes found on an old farmhouse wall hidden behind other walls during a remodel job. Most were hand written right on the wall, others were on index cards or pieces of torn and tattered paper stuck on the wall as if used for wallpaper. I am doing my best to preserve the history I found there and with some of your help finding clues as to the origins of the cook. Thank you all for your input and encouragement along this journey.
