    Maple Creme Brulee

    January 7th, 2015

    So I was making my usual egg white pizza lunch (don’t ask) and had a thought: “Wait a minute.” (This deep and insightful thought came to me because I remembered I had whipping cream in the fridge, which I usually don’t.) “I could seriously make creme brûlée right now if I saved these yolks.” Seriously.
