Just tonight I finished off some heavy cream that I froze last week before my trip. I used some of it on Sunday, in my coffee... it was kinda weird in how it separated. I used the rest of it tonight, in some scrambled eggs.

So, I got a quart of heavy cream a few weeks ago, and the stuff turned fast. Way faster than what I'm used to. Setting aside the argument over whether I should be eating it at all, what do you all think I can use it for? Is sour cream just cream... (more)

I usually drink at least a half-pint or more a day. My favorite brand is Evan's Farmhouse from upstate. The cream comes from grassfed Jersey cows, so it's almost a pale yellow color, and very rich and sweet. There's no nutritional info on the... (more)
If you drop 1/2 of those cups for a few weeks you will create a small calorie (fat) deficit in your diet and it will likely help you to drop the belly fat a bit faster. Otherwise, drink as much as you want!
This may not need it's own question but I am pretty excited that after 37 years I have discovered heavy cream. I've had a milk allergy since I was born (both mucus producing and stomach issues). I was pretty much fine with skim milk (excess... (more)
