Don’t have half and half?

Mix together a half a cup of heavy whipping cream and half a cup of regular milk! I always have heavy whipping cream on hand because it has so many uses! You can also turn heavy whipping cream into sour cream. Simply take a cup of heavy cream and add a tablespoon of white vinegar. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes and then stir it. It will have curdled, gotten thicker and now you have sour cream!
