CREPES WITH RICOTTA COCOA FILLING
For the crepe mix, beat the eggs in a small mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients and beat until well blended.
Spray a small skillet, crepe or omelette pan with non stick cooking spray.
Pour the crepe mixture into skillet/pan and cook on medium heat until almost cooked through.
Meanwhile, combine together the crepe filling ingredients.
Flip crepe and cook just a bit more; put filling mixture in a line down the middle and roll crepe over top and cook until done.
*You can also flip this like a pancake and top it with the ricotta filling, rather than rolling it over.
*Top with sprinkled ground cinnamon, sugar free syrup or a squirt of Redi Whip, optional.
Burrata Salad w/ Stone Fruit

2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
¼ cup almonds, chopped and toasted
1 tablespoon chopped oregano
¼ teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
