  1. Somewhere while down an internet Rabbit hole I came across your blog it must’ve fate, smiles.
    I’m a chef, retired … while we never can retire I just make smaller meals! At a funky restaurant I was the dessert chef. I’ve literally made 100s of creme brulees. It was my sweet Mom’s favorite dessert. Your bruleed oatmeal! The best and of course it makes perfect sense!
    Love the perspective you bring. Unique and fascinating. I’m going to enjoy this journey!
