Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer – Making Heavy Cream at Home

Never run out of heavy cream again with this make your own kitchen tip!  It’s seriously one of my top fav tips ever!

OMG people have I got a killer Tuesday’s Tip for you today! So unless you’re well me, most folks never have a quart or so of heavy cream in their fridge at all times. However the other day the unthinkable happened… I ran out AND I needed some. Now there are certain things in my house I should never run out of:

♥ bacon
♥ flour
♥ sugar
♥ salt
♥ milk
♥ heavy cream

Now I’m sure your first thought is ‘what about butter?’ Well have you ever over-whipped cream?  You end up with butter. So the back-end story… as you all know Friday nights are pizza night in my house.  Well I made the “mistake” the one night making one of my creamy strawberry milk shakes. One of the key ingredients in this thing is just a few Tbl of heavy cream.  Oh no, these are not healthy in any way but dear Jesus they are epic. So with his pizza he asked for another shake (healthy, not!). As I was prepping it and went to put some cream in with the milk I saw I was out.  Like my stash fridge was missing some.  You can make it with out buuuuuuuuuut it’s not as creamy.

I made him his without and as he was drinking it he said “this is good it doesn’t taste like your usual ones. It’s not as creamy.” So the next morning I went out shopping and wouldn’t you know it, even though I had heavy cream on my list I forgot to pick it up. Annnnnnnnnd that night for his snack he wanted another shake (why this man does not get fat is beyond me but I seriously am uber jealous over his metabolism!). So I had to think fast.
This is ridiculously awesome!

Croque Madame

A “Croque Madame” sandwich sounds fancy schmancy and difficult to make but with my recipe it’s super easy to make and ridiculously delicious! Just 6 ingredients and you have a total ‘WOW’ meal!

Anytime I hear well, anything French, I think about my high school French teacher – Mrs. E. She was one of those ‘cool’ teachers in school that let you be a free spirit in class, pass notes and even ‘share’ answers. She would take our desks and put them all in a circle so we could have one large discussion. The only rule was you were not allowed to speak in English at all. Anything you said had to be in French and had to be correct. Now when you’re a Freshman you learned the important things – “can I go to the bathroom? I need to see the nurse. I don’t understand” and with that she worked with you. But by senior year you had to speak French as well as well, a native French person. Lord help you if you forgot one of those important things like “I have to go to the bathroom”. LOL

One thing Mrs. E shared with us with her love of France was her love of French foods.  We’d often have ‘French food days’ in class where we’d all pitch in and she’d bring in homemade French foods or better yet, make them in class. She’d make crepes, chocolate bread sandwiches, escargot – yes she fed high school students snails (and they rocked!) and then she made us Croque Madames.

Now if you’ve never had croque madame or even heard of one all you need to know is that they are AMAZING and you need it in your life ASAP! Now I’ll get into what goes into these beauties but when I tell you that you need one in your life/belly trust me on this.
Get your fancy schmancy on with this seriously delicious sandwich!

Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Grilled Fish Soft Tacos with Baja Cream Sauce and Butterscotch Sweet Potato Raisin Muffins!

Oh Sunday how I so wish you were Friday night.  I need about 5 straight days of a Friday nights.  What this means is I don’t have to work the next day and I have 2 straight days of not thinking. I keep telling myself…”only a few more months of this Lor, you can do this.” But it’s like it just never ends. However I keep looking on the bright side.  Soon enough this house will be done and I can actually take a break. And about the same time my critical project at work should be wrapping up which means I can maybe take a breather (in the form of a vacation).

Hold on a sec… I’m dreaming out a vacation.  It’s been a few years since we’ve taken a vacation. If I could go for 2 weeks I’d go to Italy and Paris. If I had 3 weeks… god I’ve love to go to Maldives. But if it’s for 7-10 days, I’ll head to Scottsdale. I just need sun and relaxation. But on my bucket list for sure, Maldives. God have you ever googled that place?  It truly looks like heaven on earth. It’s known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs – like over 1000 coral reefs!  Though truth be told I’ve never snorkeled and the whole process of it scares/confuses me. It doesn’t make…sense. Plus also I’d freak out totally if something ‘touched’ me in the water. My luck a piece of seaweed would just barely graze my ankle and I’d have a heart attack thinking it was jaws.  LOL


What vacation destination is on your bucket list?

Pressure Cooker Guinness Corned Beef with Cabbage, Potatoes & Carrots

All of the amazing flavors as my infamous crock pot Guinness corned beef done in just 93 minutes all thanks to the wonders of the pressure cooker!  Hands down the BEST Corned Beef  with Cabbage, Potatoes and Carrots recipe ever!

My Guinness Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe is one of the most iconic corned beef recipes on the web. Since posting it 4 years ago it’s been liked/tweeted/pinned/shared millions upon millions of times. Simply put, it’s amazing and it’s easy.  No browning, no nothing – just dump it in and walk away.  The only part where you actually had to do work on that is if you wanted to make the Guinness Reduction sauce. For this pressure cooker recipe I didn’t make the sauce only because I was exhausted from working on the flooring with Mr. Fantabulous.  But what I did do was save the liquid and put it in the fridge. I’m actually going to make another corned beef and use that liquid (once I reduce it) as almost a Guinness bbq sauce and make pulled Guinness corned beef.

Genius, huh? LOL

93 minutes to serious deliciousness!
