Crème Brulée

It seems that for the last 2 or 3 years, I have not had time to cook. There’s always something else to do. And cooking anything worth cooking takes time. So I’ve contented myself with simple fare, and dreamed of a day when I had enough time to cook the things that I really wanted to cook.

Things like crème brulée.

As a wedding present, we got a crème brulée kit, which included recipes, ramekins, and a torch, which is a miniature flamethrower. And who doesn’t like flame throwers, that’s what I want to know.

About a week ago, I made crème brulée for the first time, and since then I’ve made it twice more. It’s simple, fun to make, and so very yummy. And I get to use a flamethrower. What’s not to like.

And we made it once with dark chocolate lining the ramekins. Mmmm. Next I want to try raspberries. And white chocolate.
