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.

Lemon Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

These lemony appetizers are easy to make and terribly addictive. Blanching the bacon ahead of time allows it to cook thoroughly on the grill - without overcooking the scallops. Lime juice also makes for a great appetizer in place of the lemon juice if desired.

2 pounds sea scallops
1/4 cup olive oil
Freshly squeezed juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
10 slices bacon

If using wooden skewers, place them in water to soak. Combine the scallops, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl or plastic bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. While the scallops are marinating, prepare the bacon. Cut each slice of bacon into three pieces. Blanch the bacon in boiling water to parcook it for three minutes. Drain the bacon well and set aside. Wrap a piece of bacon around each scallop and place on the soaked skewers or metal skewers, reserving the marinade. Grill over medium heat, turning and basting frequently with the marinade until golden brown and the scallops are cooked through.

Makes 6 servings.
