I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Feeling Guilty, Eating Richly

Hi.  I said I would post every day in February and I made it 22 days.  Not bad.  What I realized is that I don't have time every day.  Good lesson.  I also learned that while I cook food and think about food and eat food every day, I don't always have that much to say about it or pictures to show.  Ot time and energy to tell you about it.  So, good.  From now on I'll post more than I did in January and not as much as I tried to in February.  Seems like a good plan.

Now. More food talk.

I made creme bruleé.  I used Mark Bittman's recipe.  It was awesome.  There's a twist at the end... follow me through the process.

Creamy eggs:


Going in:

Coming out:


I had twice as much custard as I had room in my ramekins.  So I froze the rest in my ice cream machine. I have found my new base for ice cream.  This was incredible.

Even more so drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt.  Trust me.  It's amazing. 

I might even dare to say more amazing than this.  But not by much.


  1. If I wasn't sitting in a cubicle all day (practically) every day I seriously doubt I'd have time to post every day either. Yay mind numbing, white collar drudgery!

  2. Wow, that's a rich ice cream - not sure about that olive oil thing, but it did remind me that balsamic vinegar can sometimes be used as a dessert topping - did you torch your sugar or put it under the broiler?
