Little Things: Whipped Cream

Yesterday my husband and I had a wonderful Easter - sunrise service and breakfast with my parents, then we lazily drove back to the cities to have dinner with the in-laws and hang out. And there was no wintry mix, it was sunny! (except the dark foggy drive to church in the morning was a little creepy) Later this week I'll have a couple of photos up for the different things I made. 

But one of the best things I did yesterday was reintroduce real whipped cream to my husband's family. Decadent, delicious and addicting - real whipped cream is soooo much better than anything you can buy at the store. Plus it is super duper easy. Just remember: 1 to 1 to 1. 

Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream + 1 cup powdered sugar + 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until thick.


If it's not a special occasion, you might want to cut the sugar by 1/2 but a couple times of year I recommend going all out. Like Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving and anytime you make a Tres Leches cake.

Just remember: 1 cup to 1 cup to 1 teaspoon - you're done. 

Any more or any less and you can prove to children why they need to learn math.
