Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Sautéed Fennel and Red Peppers

This crispy side dish is flavorful and very quick to make. While fennel is not one of the most popular vegetables in the United States, it is used heavily in Italian cuisine and has a delightful flavor and crunch. For those watching their waistlines it is also a great low calorie vegetable.

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 red bell peppers, cut into think strips
1 pound fennel, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
White pepper

Heat a large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and heat. Sauté the peppers, fennel, and garlic in the olive oil for 10-12 minutes. Vegetables should still be crunchy, but not soft. Add the salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.
