Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee is a very rich, dainty custard type dessert that you'll want to have only for special occasions.
Jared had us wake up before 7 a.m. on Tues. Sept. 2 and make creme brulee with him before he had to go to work. Jared, I, and Gracie helped make it. I think it turned out well for our first time. I still like cheesecake, or my all time favorite - a great cookie, better, I think. We did different variations like plain, orange and nutmeg, raspberries and dark chocolate, orange and dark chocolate. My favorite was the orange peel with dark chocolate while Jared liked the orange and nutmeg better. Overall, it turned out well and it was fun for something quite different to eat. It is definately a once in a while type dish.
Here is the link to the recipe we used: Creme Brulee at

Wow, I have an eerie story to tell about this. I was just looking around at some blogs, and was looking at a profile whose random question was "if you were a wrestler, what would your finishing move be?" and he said "the creme brulee." I clicked directly from his page to my home page, which has Reader on it, and saw your post here. How weird!

I've never had creme brulee and I'm not sure I'm a fan - it's caramel-based, right? Not sure and it's way too early to go look at the recipe (I'm tired this morning). ;)

That looks way good! I will have to try it when I am feeling up to do something different.
