top chef

one of the great surprise lessons of marriage has been that the kitchen is just not as scary a place as i thought.

i always just assumed i was not very good at cooking but it turns out that i can make my mom's recipes and they taste just as delicious and i can figure out what to substitute for shallots (because i can't quite figure out what those are) and i can make recipes that use double boilers and sifters and all kinds of other things that used to send me running for the hills/chipotle.

and tonight we conquered the fanciest kitchen adventure yet: creme brulee.

because turns out even wielding a torch isn't as scary and hard as you think.
