Creme Brulee

OH, I love LOVE creme brulee! It's of one my favorite deserts, if not THE MOST favorite one. I like classic creme brulee the most, which is made wih vanilla (ohh, click on the pictures to see the vanilla seeds floating in the heavy cream) but I also make chocolate creme brulee for my husband.

Iubesc creme brulee la nebunie. Este poate cel mai favorit desert. Imi place reteta clasica de creme brulee, cea facuta cu seminte de vanilie...daca dai click pe poze, o sa vezi semintele de vanilie "innotand" in frisca lichida. Sotului meu ii place creme brulee de ciocolata. In josul paginii am atasat un video facut cand caramelizam zaharul pe deasupra si este partea mea preferata..atat ca gust cat si ca "executie" a retetei. E usor si rapid de facut: galbenusuri, zahar, frisca sau smantana stiu cum o numim noi in Romania...este pojghita  aceea de grasime de deasupra laptelui care se bate si se orneaza toturile, deci nu este vorba de ororea aceea numita "frisca vegetala"..deci, galbenusuri,zahar,frisca,vanilie sau ciocolata. Atat! Pofta buna!

My favorite part: melting the sugar into a nice caramel crunch top!

hot chicken wings

My husband loves them! He says these are the best chicken wings ever. The recipe is Pat's Famous Hot Wings. I didn't do the blue cheese deeping sauce because Joe wouln't like it... ranch would go well too instead of that blue cheese sauce. Also, I couldn't find Texa Pete's hot sauce so the first time I made them I used Tabasco habanero but they came out very spicy. The 2nd time I made them I used Frank's RedHot Wings Buffalo (not the "hot bufallo" which is spicier) sauce and they came out perfect!
