A student's family was kind enough to have Dena and I over for dinner this past spring, and I brought desert: Werther's butter cream creme brule, one of my original concoctions. A few weeks later, Matt's family gave us a new set of ramikins for future brules, so I was creating this notebook page (like last year's page: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/450852612669578705/ for him) when I got stung by a bee. I hope Matt enjoys that I'm still writing about him!
