Remember that one person from high school who seemed to have it all—the looks, the brains, the popularity? Well, if you went to a certain high school on Long Island, New York, then the person you’d be remembering is my dad.
Voted most popular and most athletic in high school, he holds two Ivy League degrees, speaks five languages (although my family isn’t so impressed by this feat—his own dad spoke SEVEN), and is so gosh-darn friendly that you can’t help but like him, despite all of his enviable qualities.
Such an extra-special guy deserved an extra-special Father’s Day breakfast. So, that’s exactly what I made for him.
I dug out my copy of the Voluptuous Vegan cookbook and, with a few modifications, whipped up some light, airy vegan crepes fit for a king… or, at least fit for the guy who thought he had it all!
Look at those gorgeous crepes– Now he really DOES have it all!
(The whipped cream on the crepes is Redi-Whip, not Soyatoo. After all, it was his day, not mine.)
As an after-dinner treat, Daddy Dearest requested we make his favorite cake (definitely not vegan– it has mayonnaise!). I let Mom handle the baking, but the cake-decorating was done by Yours Truly.
