How to Get a Man in the Kitchen

One of our very favorite things to cook together is creme brulee.

I love it because it's a dish that takes total perfection to get it just right.  The ingredients have to be mixed just perfectly, the custard has to be set just right after baking.  There are a lot of variables for it to turn out well.  And I love finding ways to garnish the dish so it looks beautiful when served.

My husband loves making it for this one reason:

The cooking torch

He loves using our cooking torch to melt the sugar on the top.  What man doesn't love an excuse to have an open flame?
