We love appetizers!! so tonight, I decided to just prepare “smallbites”  coz hubby is not really hungry(he had late lunch at the office)…I made Dates wrapped in priciutto ( Giada de laurentii recipe), roasted garlic,potato wedges, and the star of the night Crab legs(tasty but expensive).

not so sexy legs,but fresh!LOL

dates with goat cheese and mascarpone cheese,will wrap it with prosciutto later!
roasted garlic and bread

creme brulee

I’ve always wanted to make creme brulee but for whatever reason I didnt! So last Vday Hubby and I had dinner at Pearl bar and dining( Bellevue square) and for dessert I ordered their mocha creme brulee and it was so good that I promised myself I’m gonna make this at home! Off we went to the grocery store and home depot to get the necessary “gadget”, hello blowtorch!!!

The Inspiration
so excited to try other creme brulee recipe!
so expensive,next time i will just use vanilla extract
eggs and sugar mixture
cream and vanilla bean mixture
mixing the cream gradually to the egg mixture
getting ready for the oven!
looks so yummy already..need to be patient coz will take a while to cool them then 4-5 hours to chill in the ref!
almost there! sprinkle sugar..
so excited to do this! lol
little messy! but we are happy with the result!

We are happy with the result of our first creme brulee making adventure! I cannot wait to try other recipes like the coffee creme brulee and triple chocolate creme brulee!

Hubby wanted to repair his Bose headphones(thanks to Riley!!) so were off to Bellevue Square and decided to stop at Z’Tejas for a quick lunch! We are not “lunch” people so we only got appetizers.  We like it that way:)
