  1. Whoha, a new pic on the Foodbuzz;)
    I’ve been dreaming creme brulee last few days, actually I’ve never tried it in my life. That might change soon though


  2. Whoa! That looks so rich and delicious!! The last type of creme brulee I had was in the fall and it was a pumpkin creme brulee. I usually do not like CB, but I found when it has an additional flavor, it really is quiet good. I bet the blueberries with this stuff makes it a real gem.


  3. One of my favorite desserts ever. I was a little apprehensive about making this as I didn’t have one of those torch things, but then from you recipe I don’t need one. I can use the broiler. So now I’ll definitely be making this.
