10 Days of Holiday Baking with Event Garde - Day 10: Christmas Crepes 

On the tenth day of holiday baking Event Garde team member Kate Pojeta shares with us her family’s traditional Christmas breakfast recipe. 

“Christmas morning YES PLEASE... These were only ever made Christmas morning growing up. As I grew up, I learned these were basically crepes but here’s our family recipe for what we called Polytsincas,” Kate Pojeta. 


  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

Once all ingredients are well blended in a mixer or blender, spray a low-heated pan with non-stick spray. Pour enough batter that it is just shy of filling the entire round pan, then swirl the pan a bit to thin out the batter and completely cover the bottom of the pan. As it cooks up, you’ll be able to flip it so the other side cooks. Second side needs even less time. After it's done, serve up on a plate and fill with fruit and cool whip. We serve ours with blueberries and strawberries (frozen, then thawed), sliced fresh bananas, and cool whip. 

Kate shares, “We’ve experimented with Nutella, cooked apples and cinnamon, and other creative fillings but always default to the berries and bananas!”

Recipe makes enough for approximately 2-4 people.

Opening the Door to Volunteers

Recently, an association pro began a Collaborate discussion with the question “are associations seeking a reduction of volunteers interested in board or officer positions?” Volunteer burn-out is real and for many associations, we saw that with increasing clarity in the past 18-months. But not all responding said yes. What’s the difference between associations struggling and those succeeding?

2022: A Year of Voice, Listening, & Possibility

As we come into 2022, we find a populace that is tired. It feels like 2021, while different, was in some ways a continuation of 2020. Successful associations in the coming year will not just need adaptive systems and differentiated value – they will need to demonstrate an incredible, authentic depth of care for humanity.  Lowell Aplebaum shares a few 2022 predictions that can bring this into focus.
