I don’t normally cook with heavy cream. It’s something I buy for special occasions or a particular recipe, and because I don’t cook with it often, I always, always, always have some leftover.
It seems like every time I open the fridge, it’s staring at me in the face just begging me to use it up. I get so flustered I just shut the door quickly and forget about what I needed in the first place. It’s a vicious cycle! With an eye toward being budget conscious (heavy cream is expensive), I set out to find recipes that can use it up.
When putting together this recipe round up, it was clear to me that heavy cream has so many uses in both sweet and savory dishes, that there’s no reason it should sit unused in the fridge.
