Don't worry ... I wouldn't leave you hanging. Below are all the best recipes from my dinner party on Friday. The main course of fish and veggies was excellent, but I don't have much to share. Just roasted veggies, and baked fish - I didn't doctor them up too much.

Orange Creme Brulee
6 lg egg yolks
7 T sugar
2 1/4 cup whipping cream
2 T Grand Marnier
2 t vanilla
1 t grated orange zest
Preheat oven to 325. Whisk yolks and sugar until pale yellow. Bring cream to a simmer. Gradually whisk hot cream into yolk mixture. Add the rest of the ingredients. Don't over mix. Divide among 6 ramekins. Arrange in a 9x13 pan, and pour boiling water in the pan up to half way up the ramekins. Bake until gently set - about 25 minutes. Cool and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Cover lightly with sugar and torch before serving.
This dinner party was definitely the highlight of my weekend. I needed some therapeutic cooking, and got just that. A whole days worth! Now back to the books for a couple more weeks.
