But what are the processes actually at work, and how can you refine them? We take a closer look at the science of cream. More

Peaches n' Cream Mousse Pie

Wintertime can wear out its welcome right about now, still months away from the growing season for berries and stone fruit. When I pine for the flavors of warmer months, I turn to frozen fruit to satisfy my cravings.

Chocolate Cream Pie

When I was a kid, my father used to go out of his way to stop at a bakery in Portsmouth, NH that sold a very unusual chocolate cream pie. The pudding filling was extra light, looser than most (in a good way) and cradled in a flaky, all butter crust. I've done my best to re-create this delight from my childhood, as the bakery is long gone. Those expecting clean lines when slicing will be disappointed, but for people who love pudding, this is a fantastic treat. More

How To Make Flavored Whipped Cream

One extra easy way to add a new touch is to serve flavored whipped cream with your pie.

Without a gourd in sight, I sulked for a week from having missed a proper Halloween pumpkin carving, so I've been determined to not let pumpkin pie season pass me by too. After locating a grocery store that specializes in ingredients for displaced expats such as myself, I snatched up the last few cans of pumpkin puree and got to work. More

Use Cashews to Make Vegan Whipped Cream

Looking for a vegan or non-dairy substitute for whipped cream? Forget about all that artificial stuff. It turns out that cashews do the trick just fine! I had been hearing about this stuff for years. The internet is awash with different recipes and techniques, but after testing a bunch, here's the winner. More

Cashew Cream

I prepared this recipe using a traditional home blender. After 2 to 3 minutes of blending the texture was fairly smooth with hardly any grit. A heavy duty or professional blender (like a Vitamix) will produce an even smoother texture and do it in a little less time as well. More

Cakespy: Eton Mess

Sort of like the love child of Pavlova and Trifle, this confection, consisting of crushed meringue cookies, freshly whipped cream and sugar-coated berries (usually strawberries) takes its name from the venerable Eton College, where it is traditionally served at the school's annual cricket game against Winchester College.
