This make-ahead breakfast dish comprises of salted caramel crepes with strawberries. Prepare a night before and bake in the morning. I am a ‘make sure you eat breakfast in the morning’ kind of girl. It’s a habit ingrained in me since childhood and I always have something, even if it’s just bread dipped in my chai.

Just to give you an idea here’s what a regular…
