I have challenged myself to baking for 365 days straight - I started on January 27, 2011. Join me each day as I use a different recipe either handed down through family, given to me by friends, borrowed from a website or from one of my many cookbooks. This Créme Brulée recipe is from Day 20 taken from Alton Brown at www.foodnetwork.com.

I am all over this gorgeous tart. First of all, anything with blueberries *and* blackberries scores mega bonus points in my books, and since moving down to Mexico I have become a big fan of limes, so the lime curd filling in a buttery tart crust - well that just seals the deal!
