Creme Brulee topped with Bananas.
I remember the first time I ever heard of creme brulee. I was 12 and watching "My Best Friends Wedding" with my Tita Annie, and Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz were talking about creme brulee and jello. Julianne Potter: Crème brûlée can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O. Kimberly Wallace: I HAVE to be Jell-O! : Julianne Potter:You're never gonna be Jell-O! LOL, ever since then I was determined to find out what this ritzy dessert was. I started ordering it in restaurants and it has been my ALL TIME favorite desert ever since. This was my first time making Creme Brulee, and (surprisingly enough) is one of the easiest desserts I've made. It just sounded so darn fancy I was too scared to even try it! Thank the heavens I did, because it was outstanding! Now i can enjoy my fave dessert anytime I want in the comfort of my own home. I found a few recipes online and adjusted them to my liking. Some cremes call for 8 yolks. As much as I Looove egg, It doesn't sit right with me eating all of those runny baby chicks. Even though I'm not a vegetarian or anything I still have a heart. :)
