Like every other young man in his twenties, Tom was looking for his niche in life....a career. When the founder of The Kitchen Place, Alec Osvath, required major heart surgery, Tom Detty stepped up to the plate to help out. That was over 25 years ago. Since then, Tom has been serving builders and homeowners with his kitchen expertise.

Over time, I learned every aspect of the kitchen business, from field measuring, to layout, to installations. It has become a very nice career for me.

Tom's Favorite Recipe

Hungarian Crepes

The entire Osvath family is crazy about crepes. This recipe is in honor of Alec and Betty Osvath, who shared this recipe with many friends and family.

Combine and mix in bowl:

8 Eggs

1 Tbsp Sugar

1 Tsp Vanilla

1/2 Tsp Salt

Add in the following ingredients and mix together:

1 Cup Milk

1 Cup Flour

Next, add the following

4 Tbsp Butter

Pour in a greased, flat skillet and cook until a tender brown. Or, if you have a crepe maker, simply dip the surface into the batter.

Garnish with home made whip cream, strawberries, bananas, blueberries or kiwis. As an yummy option, coat the inside of the crepe with vanilla pudding.

Irresistible!
