When it comes to the holidays, there is no better dessert topping than real whipped cream.  But when I make something, I want it to be fuss-free.  And usually, with whipped cream, it will separate after a short time.  One year by chance, I discovered that by adding honey to whipped cream, it becomes stabilized and won’t separate.  Here’s the trick:  Add one teaspoon of honey for each cup of whipping cream.  Whip and sweeten and you normally would (I use powdered sugar) and your whipped cream won’t separate.




Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
