Creme Brulee

A few years ago a friend of mine gave me a Creme Brulee kit, I finally opened the box and decided to make this dessert. Unfortunately I could not get the torch to work so I put it back in the stove under broiler to carmelize the sugar. As I mentioned before I’m not much of a baker but it looked easy enough. I … Read More Creme Brulee
