Tip of the Week - Heavy Cream

Write a list BEFORE you go grocery shopping.
That's a tip I'm sure you are familiar with!

Apparently I do not heed my own advice.....
Yup, its a good thing I'm pretty.

Hence the post.
As I am sure you've guessed I needed heavy cream for a recipe and what do you know, I didn't have any in the fridge.
But eureka!  A solution!

You can make your own heavy cream substitute (although I have only tried this in a few recipes I am not sure it would stand up in a "all liquid" recipe)

Here's all you'll need:

3/4 c. milk
1/3 c. butter
(maybe a tbsp. of flour if using less than 2% milk)

In a sauce pan add milk and butter and heat. (not to boiling point)
Whisk in the flour if needed.

  1. I've been doing that all the time lately! Last week I went to the store for one thing, just one. Came home with $40 worth of groceries and NOT the one thing I went for. They need a self help group for this!

  2. I love reading about substitutes :P Sooo convenient especially for people like me who keep forgetting what to buy

  3. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already Cheers!
