Creme Brulee

If you can tear your eyes away from our messy kitchen, you will see Matt's Friday night masterpiece: a small, creamy, rich and delicious dish of creme brulee. After peeling away vanilla beans and tossing them in a jar of sugar for a week (hello, new favorite way to sweeten coffee), it was ready to be carefully whisked and folded with cream before being flambeed by my miniature craft torch to create a golden sugar crunch. It was the perfect sweet treat for our date night in. 

What can I say? He knows the key to my heart.
