#CreamJustGotReal with @BKCreamery All Natural Extra Thick Cream #InStoreEvent #Ad

I am completely in the zone while in the kitchen. I'm not afraid to try new things, or a twist to some of my already favorite things. Ready to try something new? I know I am!

Like Thick Cream (Here is a .60 cents off Coupon for BK Creamery.) The Brooklyn Creamery has an all New, all Natural Fresh Dairy Cream similar to British Style ‘’Double Cream." The Thickness is similar to sour cream or crème fraîche but without the sour or tangy taste. It is not Ultra Pasteurized like the majority of most heavy creams. I will be attending an In-Store event at the end of the month, scroll down to find details/locations near you.

Photo Courtesy from, Check out more Delicious Recipes there.

All Ingredients are Natural: Cream, Carrageenan, Nisin. I can actually pronounce all the ingredients in the Cream. There are no Preservatives! BK Creamery is Gluten Free, Kosher, using rBST Free Milk with No Artificial Ingredients, No Added Salts/Sugars & No Carbs.

The Extra Thick Double Cream is ideal for Cooking, Spooning, and Light whipping.

  • Double Cream can be whipped to make homemade whip cream. Add any type of flavor/sweetener by mixing with cream for just a few minutes. Ex: Crushed Oreos, brown sugar cinnamon, honey, vanilla extract
  • Double Cream can be used to make a homemade spread. Whip double cream into a thick consistency (similar to butter). 
  • Leave in refrigerator overnight and enjoy a thick homemade spread. Ex: Vegetable spread, Brown sugar cinnamon spread 
  • Dollop onto fresh fruits Strawberries, peaches, blueberries 
  • Used in all types of desserts 
  • Piping, layering onto cakes 
  • Making homemade ice cream & gelato 
  • Creating delicate mousses Topping pies and other desserts

While the Extra Thick Single Cream (It's half the fat remember.) is ideal for Cooking, and Spooning.

  • Single Cream can be used to make a homemade coffee creamer – just mix with any flavoring. Ex: Vanilla extract, Peppermint oil 
  • Single Cream can make scrambled eggs creamier and thicker.

Great for Dips, Soups, Sauces, Coffee Creamer, Scrambled Eggs, Home made Whip Cream, Piping & Layering on Cakes/Deserts. Even Ice creams, and Gelatos. Or just used as a spread.

Doesn't homemade whip cream with cinnamon & sugar sound amazing? Or maybe you'd rather have shredded oreo cookies, or fresh fruits.

Since The Brooklyn Creamery are the new guys, and we need to stick together for All Natural products you can go visit  an in store sampling event at the following locations from now, til June. I will be going on May 30th, hope to see you there.

Someone with Autism loves me.

Just saying "Someone with Autism loves me," is difficult for me.  I'm not ashamed of who Sy is, I just dislike labeling him.  Sy is Sy.  He loves me, and I love him.

Sy started Early Special Ed, Pre-K last month.  He's been diagnosed with Autism by Childrens Hospital, and he has an IEP with the school system (This is why I don't blog as much as I used to.
Sy really loves going to school.  He has his own booster seat on the Bus.  Sy is hand to hand transfer  through his Aides since he's a Flight Risk.  He's adjusting better than I thought he would (I on the other hand, that's a whole different story.)  He's upset this week because of all the snow, he doesn't understand that school has been cancelled because of the weather.

Sy is the cutie in the blue jeans, and Teether in his mouth.  He is a chewer, and likes to rub things on his chin as well.  Sy has ritualistic behaviors, on top of ASD. He's also non-verbal, but learning sign language, and PECS.  

I just wanted to say, if you know a family that has a child with Autism, a few things not to say are "He will snap out of it.", "Don't worry about it, all kids go through that.", "He's just being bad, you have to discipline him more.","You just have one kid, I have three..","Be Thankful he doesn't talk..","Try this diet..",  How about just saying "He is who he is, and we love him."  Sy is Gluten, and Dairy free already.  Since going Gluten free, he makes Eye Contact, he never did that before.

We are still learning along with him.  Some days when he's walking even higher on his toes, I know that's going to be a bad day.  Other days, when he does that spin on his knee, that's almost like a triple axle - perfect balance, I know that's going to be a good day.  Sy loves Pirates, and he loves the water. Sy also likes to take different sized balloons, and let them hoover over the air purifier fan that's on the floor.  I like to call him my Professor Sy.  For people that think autistic children are stupid, They really aren't, they just see things differently than you, and I.  I wish more people would understand that.

Since today was a snow day (It was supposed to be his Picture Day!!) We have been playing with Playdoh most of the day, and practicing his "Say Cheese" face.

Sy also loves music, and to dance.  Sy is pretty awesome.   Even with the meltdowns, and trying to get him not to self hurt, he is still perfect.

The way I try to explain why Sy is "the way Sy is" is that he has too much soul for his little body to handle. It's a sensory overload.

Do you suffer from Noseblindness? Febreze has the cure! #Spon

What is Nose Blindness? Nose Blindness has two levels.  There is Odor Habituation, and Odor Adaption.  As my Puppyface started to age, 12+years, he started to smell.  I could smell it when I came home, but soon it didn't bother me.  I loved him, I'd condition myself for any smell involving him.  That would be me Odor Adaption.  

While my friends, and family would come over, and I would be embarrassed by the scent, that is Odor Habituation.  I didn't want to be known as the person that's house smelled! As long as I didn't smell it, it wasn't true, right?? Nooooo. There really was a simple solution.. To get rid of the Smell!

Gluten Free GEFU Healthy-N-Lean Review & Tryazon Party! #WheatBelly #GEFU #TRYAZON #Spon #RiceNoodles #Veggies #SalmonMiniCake #Recipes

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post through Tryazon to throw a party using GEFU.  All opinions are my guests, and my own!

(Rice Noodles, Carrots, Celery, Lime Juice.)

Recently I had the opportunity to invite a handful of friends to try out GEFU cooking utensils (  I loved the Julienne Peelers, Spiral Slicer and Lemon Juicer.  My absolute Favorite Julienne Peeler was the smaller handheld one.

For the main course, I used the Gefu Julienne Peeler on Carrots, Celery, and made Rice Noodles.  Also squeezed Lime over top with the Juicer.  Everything was extremely easy to use.  

It was also fun for the guests to use the Juicer themselves on their plates.  They had never seen anything like it before.

(Cabbage, Cucumber, Red Onions, Mango Rice Vinegar, Salt & Pepper for a Side Slaw Salad to go with the Rice Noodles, and Mini Salmon Patties.)

Everything Used,

GEFU, Spiral Slicer, #13460 (Does 2 Julienne Sizes.)

GEFU, Lemon Juicer, #12485 (Can also do Limes, and Oranges.)

GEFU, Julienne Peeler, #13660 (This one was my Absolute Favorite.)

GEFU, Julienne Slicer, #50410 (Guests Favorite.)

Check out GEFU by going here,,

Also made Mini Salmon Patties in Cotton Seed Oil for the Guests.  The Salmon Patties are just Pink Salmon, Egg, Salt, Pepper, and Srircha Sauce fried in the Cotton Seed Oil.

Have fun with it! We all thought these GEFU utensils were amazingly fun, and easy to use. Thank you so much Tryazon, and GEFU for the Party Fun.
