One of the items on my to-do list for 2009 was to learn to make creme brulee. I'm a little late, but I finally did it this weekend.
I used this recipe, and it wasn't really all that hard. I had a butane torch from the hardware store, and it didn't work so well. It may have been user error. My brother Cary was visiting, and he did most of the sugar caramelizing using the highly dangerous and exciting lighter and butane torch technique. Yum, yum, yum! I can't be making this too often, but I will definitely make it again, it was so delicious!
I might have also started another sweater. I was using this lovely alpaca yarn for another sweater, but when I was nearly done I realized it wasn't very flattering. So I'm reusing it for a tea leaves cardigan.
I think this one will work out much better.
