    • My hubby had a knee replacement last week and I wanted to welcome him home from the hospital with his favorite crème brûlée. I tried yours for the first time because I just didn't have a lot of time. It came out fantastic and won't make it any other way again. I could have made it with my eyes closed. Well, not really but it seemed like it because it was so easy yet so delicious. Thank you for the great get well treat!
