“If you kiss on the first date and it's not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it's better to hold out and not kiss for a long time. I am a strong believer in kissing being very intimate, and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else.”

"I think probably trying to please too many people. Sometimes I get so caught up in making other people happy that I just sort of forget about making myself happy and you obviously need to make yourself happy."

Happy Week-end bloggers. I bring you one of my top 12 favorite movies & one of my favorite treats. I hope you enjoy!
Amélie is a shy waitress in a Montmartre café. After returning a long-lost childhood treasure to a former occupant of her apartment, and seeing the effect it has on him, she decides to set out on a mission to make others happy and in the meantime pursues a quirky guy who collects discarded photo booth pictures.
Amélie's Amaretto Crème Brulee
* 2 cups heavy whipping cream
* 2 tablespoons Amaretto
* 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
* 4 large egg yolks
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 4 ot 6 tablespoons for topping
* sliced almonds, lightly toasted, optional
* fresh mint, optional
Preheat oven to 350°.
In a saucepan, bring cream, Amaretto, and almond extract to a boil.
Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks with 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Slowly whisk the hot cream into the egg yolk mixture until well blended. Place 6 to 8 shallow individual 6- to 8-ounce baking dishes in a large baking or roasting pan. Pour cream mixture into the baking dishes. Pour boiling water into the baking dish to about halfway up the small baking dishes. Carefully place the pan in the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the centers barely move. You may have to adjust baking time, depending on the size/depth of the baking dishes.
Cool the creme brulee then chill for about 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
Sprinkle each creme brulee with 2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar. Carefully torch to melt the sugar, moving and taking care not to burn. Or, place under the broiler, turning and watching very closely, until sugar turns a darker brown, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. A cooking torch is good to have if you make this often. You have much more control on melting the sugar, which forms the famous crust.

Suddenly, actress Christina Hendricks' size-12, hourglass-figure is the hottest bod on TV and her character's return to the ad firm is about the happiest piece of news going on the much-talked-about series.
Hendricks, who struggled for years to find work in Hollywood, is now a fought-over cover girl and the new archetype for sexy women on TV.
A British government official recognized Hendricks for having the healthy shapeliness that young girls and women should aspire to and, in May, she was voted the "sexiest woman alive" by female readers of Esquire.
BIG RED: Christina Hendricks turns heads as "Mad Men's" Joan but it took years.
It's a little overwhelming, says the 35-year-old actress.
"I've never quite felt like I fitted in," she told British GQ in the magazine's upcoming issue.
"It's as if I was invisible before 'Mad Men.' Now people come up and say: 'God, I love the show, I'm so-and-so,' and I'm like, 'I know, I had dinner with you three years ago.' "
Before "Mad Men," Hendricks was told to lose weight in order to get roles -- something she was reluctant to do because she was perfectly happy with her non-Hollywood standard size.
Now, hearing that she's got the body that other women desire comes as a surprise.
"It's such a compliment, because of all those times I had agents who were like, 'You have to lose some weight,' and all of a sudden, people are celebrating it," she told Health magazine.
"It's like: 'Oh, thank you! Thank you for letting me be me.' "
Fashion designers haven't been as quick to accept Hendricks' body type.
Hendricks, who's most often seen on-set in form-flattering '60s garb, has had a harder time than other starlets when it comes to finding red carpet-worthy, figure-hugging evening dresses.
"It is difficult come awards season, and I need to find a gown to walk down the red carpet in, and there are only size zeros and size twos available," she told Glamour.
"Then it becomes downright annoying because all these designers are saying, 'We love 'Mad Men,' we love Christina, but we won't make her a dress.' "
Perhaps that's why she's so comfortable in Joan's skin.
"It's fun to play a woman who's so sure of herself, who walks around with incredible posture and her chin up," Hendricks told GQ.
"When you put on the girdle and the long-line bra and the pencil skirt and the sweater, you just start walking a different way. That's just how it is. And when you take it all off, Joan just disappears."
