WATCH: Jamie Geller’s Ballroom Blintzes

These 5-ingredient crêpes are a must-add to your repertoire. Once you can make a crêpe, you can make ANYTHING! Seriously, breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snacks can all start with this humble, paper-thin pancake. I’ll show you how easy crêpe making is and how creative you can get with the fillings. From Classic Cheese Blintzes (MY FAVE! I’m a sucker for the oldies but goodies) to Caesar Salad Blintzes to Ice Cream Blintzes… need I go on? Wait, maybe I will… Can’t leave without telling you my manicurist stuffs her crêpes with chopped meat and then fries them! What? YES! YUM!

Jamie Geller is the only best-selling cookbook author who wants to get you out of the kitchen — not because she doesn’t love food, but because she has tons to do. As “The Bride Who Knew Nothing” Jamie found her niche specializing in fast, fresh, family recipes. Now the “Queen of Kosher” (CBS) and the “Jewish Rachael Ray” (New York Times), she’s the creative force behind and “JOY of KOSHER With Jamie Geller” magazine. Jamie and her hubby live in Israel with their six super kids, who give her plenty of reasons to get out of the kitchen — quickly. Check out her new book, ”JOY of KOSHER: Fast, Fresh Family Recipes.”
