This is a photo of my second attempt at making Creme Brulee, which was delicious! Even less-than-perfect creme brulee is better than no creme brulee, but it's not as difficult to make as you might think. And it's quite inexpensive. For less than $4.00, I made six individual desserts. I've been reading the book, Elegantly Easy Creme Brulee : & Other Custard Desserts by Debbie Puente for helpful hints and using some free recipes I found at http://www.allrecipes.com/ . (Try the 5-Star Ghiradelli recipe there. mmmm. yummy.)
I would suggest making some and then watching one of my favorite movies, Amelie. Amelie likes creme brulee too. Watch for a taste!
