France's favorite ultra-thin pancake, the crêpe, is found packaged and ready to use in produce sections. Crêpes are usually promoted for use in quick fruit desserts, but they also make handy wraps to dress up simple dinners quickly. Just fold them around a savory filling and bake briefly. Typically, a package of 10 crêpes (9 in. wide; 4 oz. total) costs $4 to $5; they last for months on the shelf. Once opened, store airtight in the refrigerator for weeks. Order from Frieda's by Mail, (800) 241-1771, ext. 151, or Melissa's World Variety Produce, (800) 588-0151.
