When not dealing with my Volvo which is feeling just fine now thank you due to an infusion of cash, I am a writer. I work with my husband. We write screenplays and I cook lunch. That deal started when we were first married and had a big kitchen table and no office so we moved the computer into the kitchen and I'd cook while we wrote. We still have the big kitchen table, but now we have an office in the house, so that's where the computers are. That's where we work, but I still cook lunch because next to writing, cooking's what I love best. This time of year is also when the Hollywood studios send screeners out for awards voting, and every day something new is arriving at the house for us to watch. The other day Julie & Julia arrived. I couldn't wait to see it. When I was a kid, Julia Child was on TV and my parents lived to watch her drop a chicken or flub something and do a last minute save. They were convinced that she was nipping from the cooking sherry and cooking half in the bag. They found it highly amusing. As for me, all I wanted to be able to do was throw a web of hot spun sugar over a broomstick set between two chairs and make a perfect cobweb for my Buche De Noel without giving myself third degree burns or turning myself into human flypaper. It never happened. When I left home to go out on my own, the first cookbook I bought was Mastering The Art Of French Cooking. I worked my way though it over the years. One of the dishes that I always served at the end of a diner party back in the day was the Pot De Creme. In fact I was so found of Chocolate Pot De Cremes that I had a lovely set of little porcelain Pot De Creme pots imported from France. Up until a few days ago when I dug them out, I hadn't used them in ages. In fact I'd forgotten thy were even there. Watching the movie inspired me to make use of them again, this time using spices and flavors that I work with every day. I thought how nice would a cardamom and saffron Pot De Creme be? Quite nice I discovered. And really pretty easy to make. Here's what I did.+
