Though cream was once a kitchen staple, its richness has deterred many cooks from pouring it with a generous hand. But it remains a wholesome, sumptuous, and indispensable addition to many dishes, both savory and sweet. For the recipes below, we used heavy cream, which has 36 percent to 40 percent milk fat, instead of whipping cream, with 30 percent to 36 percent. (Despite the nomenclature, heavy cream tends to whip up more quickly than whipping cream and holds its shape better, as fat is what stabilizes the air bubbles that give cream its loft.)

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
