Tip of the day:

When measuring honey, coat the measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray or vegetable oil before adding the honey. The honey will slide right out.

This recipe calls for 3/4 cup of half-and-half, use 1/3 cup whole milk and 1/3 cup single cream.

I'm sure a lot of people don't kn ow what half & half is!! The method is a bit confusion when it comes to the half that you are dealing with. Seems like heart stroke on a plate :p

I'm putting up a little note on what half&half is.

sometimes I forget that it's an American prepared dairy product.
