Creme Brulee for my Valentine's Day Dessert! Wonderful!

About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking Italian food, but mostly I go for quick and easy recipes. Once in a while I will go "all out" on a meal, but only when I have extra time (not often).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking and icing sugar cookie cutouts during Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
I can make Chicken Scampi that is better than the one you get at Olive Garden! Although, it does take almost 2 hours!
My cooking tragedies
None too horrible yet! (as I knock on wood!)

Creme Brulee
Like a lot of the other reviewers, I too used CHEFPEON's recommendations about the recipe. It turned out fantastic! My boyfriend loves the Creme Brulee that we get at Ruth's Criss Steakhouse, and it was just like it. So easy for such a fancy dessert...and it looks and tastes very impressive! Makes you look like a professional chef when you serve it!

Meringue Kisses II
I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I had to trash the batter! I whipped my egg whites until they were stiff and dry, then added the 1/4 cup sugar. After I had peaks forming, I added the secone 1/4 cup sugar and I also added 1/4 teaspoon of LorAnne's flavorings (less because they are very concentrated) and added 2 drops of food coloring. Immediately after adding those items and starting the second round of beating, it lost all shape. I beat it for 15 mins expecting it to regain the fluff but it didn't, so I added a bit more sugar and kept beating. I probably beat it for 30 mins and it never got fluffy...just runny! What went wrong???
