Remember This?

I am craving any and all things lemon. I made this last year in March, I think February sounds like a good month to me!If anyone see's any Myer Lemons anywhere while shopping let me know!
{Another recipe that sounds so springy and delish: Lemon Ricotta Fritters and Stawberry Curd!}

Skateboarding like a Three year old

The weather has been so nice, We have been outside playing as much as we can. Ryan and His friend Taegan decided to try some skate boarding. They improvised because standing on a skateboard is kind of scary when you are only three....
Or you can be brave and ride down head first...........
They decided that riding it down the driveway is fun, and goes pretty fast!

These are some happy kids, happy to be outside and not cooped up in the house!

And I am happy because this is the first time we have been outside with out coats in a very very very long time!

Creme Brulee

I have been wanting to make Creme Brulee, I have made it before, but it was a long time ago... I think early 2002.I had a family dinner to go to, and I was in charge of the Dessert. I knew right away that THIS was what I was going to make.

{my creme brulee, in all its glory}

Really it is not a hard dessert to make, you just have to follow instructions and have patience, and the tools.

You need:
Ramekins, Turbinado Sugar or Sugar in the Raw, and a Torch{ because the best part is breaking through the sugary crust on top! }Lots of Eggs and Heavy Cream, And Vanilla Bean.

There are lots of recipes online, and they are all pretty similar. You should go crazy and try it!

{I used the recipe from Americas Test Kitchen Family Cookbook}
