Hi, lovely friends! Happy Monday!

Wanna talk about keepin’ it classy? Over the weekend, I went to a gathering of sorts. I was all dolled up – I got my hair did, my makeup done… I was bringin’ it!

Then I had a bottle of wine…

All class went out the window. icon wink Red Wine Creme Brulee + KitchenAid Stand Mixer Giveaway!

How was your weekend?!

But. This. This Red Wine Creme Brulee = classy. And elegant, and creamy, and rich, and hot dang, delicious! Goodness gracious, this was SO GOOD!

You know, I make creme brulee kind of often… we like it. Especially me. I like creamy desserts. I say no to cupcakes and cookies, but never, have I ever EVER said no to creamy, decadent desserts.

Whatever you do, PUHLEASE do not dismiss this dessert as something that might be complicated… it’s not! If you know how to whisk egg yolks, and pour heavy cream in a saucepan, you’re set. Just don’t pour the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks all at once, unless you want scrambled eggs for dessert, instead of creme brulee.

In case you’re wondering what hubby and I will be enjoying on Valentine’s Day for dessert, it won’t be this. Only because we already enjoyed it last weekend. I’m thinking about making that French Silk Tart – it’s been a while.

But YOU! You should totally make it and enjoy it with your other half.  It’s slightly tangy, it’s perfectly sweet, and it brings a lovely romantic touch.

Also. It’s naturally gluten-free! So, for those that have been asking me about gluten-free desserts, TA-DA! Here you go!
Also? How do you feel about a KitchenAid Stand Mixer?! Because I’m kind of giving one away! WOOOOT! A few of my bloggy friends and I are sponsoring this giveaway – if you have a moment, please scroll down and pay them a visit by clicking on their links!

    I’ll be spending the day with my kids then have a nice dinner with them & my hubby. Our anniversary is one week before Valentine’s Day so we tend to put more focus on that than Valentine’s Day :-)

    I plan on spending the day with my little girls because my husband has to work.

    I have no plans for Valentine’s Day. I will probably make some sugar cookies for my kids and grandkids loaded with sprinkles.

    Fun afternoon with the kids and then maybe a movie in bed with the hubby. Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck everyone.

    I do not celebrate the man-made tradition called valentine’s day, but I celebrate every day which Jehovah God has given me – joyfully and with much gratitude!

    I don’t really have any plans at the moment, but definitely will spend some time reflecting on and being thankful for all of the loved ones in my life~

    Oh my. Red wine crème brulee, talk about my kind of heaven! I’ve always been partial to it, but the addition of red wine is seriously making me swoon. AND the pictures are SO gorgeous!

    I love creme brulee and one of these days I WILL buy a torch as the broiler method is more miss than hit for me.
