I am making creme brulee tonight... wish me luck

K and I aren't very romantic people. We both realists with very sarcastic personalities. But that doesn't mean there is no romance. Well tonight we are celebrating Valentine's Day. This is somewhat of a first for us because usually my birthday and v-day are combined into one celebration. Apparently if two holidays fall with in six days of each other they are celebrated as one, hmmm I wonder who made up that rule?

Well K is making dinner tonight, but it's going to be a surprise- fun! Well I'm in charge of dessert. I can bake a mean cupcake or cookie but I thought I would spice it up a little. So I'm making creme brulee. Creme brulee is the greatest dessert ever, even better than Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon Bun Ice cream (amazing).

This is the part about the creme brulee that scares K a little.

The Torch. Oh yes I get to play with fire. If you know me you can envision me in my kitchen now: torch in one hand, glass of wine in other hand. K says something funny I turn and almost light counter top on fire maybe even melt the formica a little.
I have a tendency to forget I'm holding something when I hear something funny or want to add to conversation. I once dropped a whole thing of scrambled eggs on the floor because I was holding the pan and turned really quickly to respond to something on the TV and gently tossed them out onto the floor. It was lovely.

So ladies and gentlemen wish me luck and hopefully I won't be blogging tomorrow about my melted kitchen.


  1. ooh good luck! i've made it before and it turned out really well! and the torching part is fun too! have a great night!

  2. Haha, good luck!! Creme brulee is delicious!!

  3. Ugh, I can totally relate to the holiday/birthday rule - 2 days before Christmas just makes me CRAZY! It's always like: here's your Christmas/birthday present. WHAT?! While I'm subjected to getting a friend a Christmas AND a b-day gift, they get totally cop-out with the combination gift.

    Hope your treat was delicious!

  4. I'm not brave enough to use a torch! Hope it went well!!
