    Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when Erica and Lauren of HonestlyWTF launched their equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything. Each week, we'll spotlight their creative concoctions. Go ahead, try to look away — we dare you.

    Crème brûlée is one of the simplest, yet most impressive desserts you can make. It only involves a few ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry like eggs, sugar, and cream. But instead of keeping with the common vanilla, I infused the custard with Earl Grey tea, which transformed the ordinary crème brûlée into a unique custard that is silky and fragrant. Its sweet aroma is intoxicating — all thanks to the bergamot, a type of citrus that is infused in the tea. And then there’s my favorite part, the thin glassy layer of caramelized sugar that is oh-so-satisfying to crack.

    Trust me, your guests will be impressed!
