This might show my true food geek colors but there have actually been times in my life where I was left wishing I had some whipped cream, but lacked the necessary tools to make it (because who doesn’t wish for whipped cream while camping right?) Unfortunately I didn’t know about this crafty food hack at those times, but I’m sharing it with you today so you won’t have to be sad and cream-less like I was.

You can make perfect, delicious whipped cream with nothing more than 35% cream and a glass mason jar with a lid. All you have to do is fill the jar about half full of cream (add a sweetener like sugar or maple syrup if you like) screw the lid on tightly and shake, shake, shake! When I tried this it took about three minutes of shaking for a reasonably whipped consistency. Your arms will get a pretty good workout (I never said it would be easier than beaters, nothing is easier than those things) but just consider this your cardio and arm workout for the day.

If you want to find Angela on any given day, she's probably looking up reviews to decide where to grab lunch, or in her downtime, binge-watching the latest 'it-series' on Netflix.
