With a to-do list longer than Santa's, you may not have time to stop and smell the mistletoe.

After a meal of slow food done fast, indulge in this festive dessert, almost too decadent to enjoy alone. The eggnog crème brulee is a balance of texture between a thick layer of brittle, caramelized raw sugar and a creamy, spiced custard. The holiday dish will remind you of an ice-skating rink, with a pleasant boozy filling just underneath the surface. Served with a shortbread cookie, the dessert puts a seasonal spin on traditional crème brulee, adding in a vanilla-spiced mix of eggs and brandy to combine confection and spirit.

Richly sweet and indulgent, the eggnog crème brulee is quite the guilty pleasure -- and isn't that what the holidays are all about?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
