Kelly’s Crepes in Ashland Oregon

Earlier this summer Kelly and Steve Sacks opened Kelly’s Crepes at the corner of A and Fourth Streets in Ashland Oregon.

Kelly’s Crepes has an outdoor kitchen, Kelly prepares the large crepes on a commercial griddle imported from France. Kelly and Steve offer affordable hot-off-the-grill crepes, both savory and sweet in a garden setting.

Some of the selections to tempt you are… Ham and Cheese, Pulled Pork, Spinach with Goat Cheese, Nutella and Banana, Raspberries with Chocolate and Strawberries and Lemon Curd. They all sound fabulous. Jean-Pierre and I are planning to visit soon to taste the delights for ourselves.

On the first Friday of every month they join Ashlands First Friday Art Walk and will be open from 5-8 pm displaying original art from local artists.

For a great deal visit on Tuesdays and get any of the crepes for a $1.00 off.

Kelly’s Crepes is open from 9 am till 2 pm Tuesdays through Saturdays.  Take a walk down A street and try something unique in Ashland.

Summer at the Blue Moon Bed and Breakfast

July 10th, 2013 by Julie

 

Everything in the Blue Moon garden is blooming, including a Yucca cactus

It is located atYUCCA the entrance to our parking lot.
I have read that after it blooms it may die
back, if you know about these plants give us some advice about what to do.

We have just planted a raised bed kitchen garden on the south side of the Cottage.
There are tomato plants and herbs to use in our breakfasts ( they are organic, no
pesticides here )We also have sown some lettuce and radish seeds, if the deer
don’t get them first we hope to serve greens on our breakfast plates
too!
