I'm trying to balance good food and good health, which for me is pretty hard. My 3 favorite food groups are butter, sugar, and carbs. But I usually choose apples over apple pie and carrots over carrot cake. Matt, however, likes "real food" (as he calls it). So that means lots of cooking for my love, which I really do enjoy doing. But making all of these tasty treats and not eating any of them gets hard after a while. So I think I've been good long enough. I've decided to treat both my boyfriend and I to celebrate 4 months together. And what better to do that with than his favorite dessert (and one of the most decadent ones I know of):
Creme Brulee <3
Yes, creme brulee as in egg yolks, heavy cream, and sugar. Definitely NOT diet food, but definitely delicious. Plus I made it in my new little yellow ramekins. I bought them at Ross for $5.50 on sale last week and couldn't wait to use them.
I used this recipe from www.seductionmeals.com ... so scandalous for a simple cream brulee haha. I mean I'm not trying to seduce my boyfriend with dessert I just wanted to make something special. The seducing is accomplished when I make this face:
|Oh yeah...you can tell he wants me right? ;)|
There ya have it...The only changes I made were dividing the mixture between 3 ramekins (dunno why it only made that many), and putting the brulee under the broiler in the oven instead of using a torch (because I don't think those are legal to have in the dorms).
