Philly rapper Freeway has invested in a product close to his roots, literally. The 36-year-old rapper has debuted his contribution to manscaping with the release of his All Natural Best Beard cream. Packaged in silver tins, the handcrafted creams come in an assortment of scents, from sweet blueberry to the limited-edition holiday spice that smells like nutmeg. As of late, men have been saying so long to the chin strap, the goatee, and the soul patch as more have been growing full-on thick beards of glory.

Buckets of berries and carloads of cats couldn't have lapped up all the cream that was spilled on York Road and Route 202 in Bucks County early yesterday. Police estimated that at least 225 gallons of the slippery liquid leaked from the back of a Lehigh Valley Dairies tractor-trailer as it made its way from Warwick to New Hope and then into New Jersey. The tractor-trailer, which began its trek in Fort Washington, was headed for the Johanna Farms dairy in Flemington, N.J., carrying 1,350 gallons of heavy whipping cream.

Some of the most interesting recipes call for heavy cream. But at 838 calories a cupful, cream is sure to be on every waistline-watcher's forbidden list! What can you substitute that's light in calories but rich in buttery flavor and creamy texture? Low-fat, part-skim fresh ricotta cheese provides the perfect answer. More familiar as an ingredient in Italian main courses such as lasagna, this fresh cheese has a sweet cream flavor rather than a piquant cheesy taste. When you spoon it from the container, its texture is somewhat coarse and grainy, but a wonderful thing happens when you whip ricotta in the food processor or blender.

The 1960s came alive again at Tuesday's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame eighth annual gala in L.A., where Eric Clapton headed the first performance in almost 25 years of inductee Cream while a last-minute flow of bitterness blocked a planned gig by inductee Creedence Clearwater Revival. Along the way, inductee Ruth Brown sang her 1953 hit, "Momma He Treats Your Daughter Mean" with Bonnie Raitt, and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder stood in for the late Jim Morrison as he and the three surviving members of the Doors did a three-number set that included "Light My Fire.

Dear Polly: I have a biscuit recipe that calls for heavy cream instead of milk, and no shortening. I love the biscuits, but don't always have cream on hand. What will happen if I make the biscuits with milk instead? - Beryl Dear Beryl: If you simply substitute milk for the heavy cream, the biscuits are likely to be tough and unappetizing. That's because cream provides both liquid and fat. It's a substitute for both milk and shortening in ordinary biscuit recipes. You can still make the biscuits with milk, but you must also add some butter or other fat to compensate for the fat content of the cream, which is what makes the biscuits tender and flaky.

Dear Polly: Could you repeat once more your recipe for whipped cream that holds up for more than a couple of hours? - Barbara Dear Barbara: A little gelatin stabilizes whipped cream so that it holds its shape for at least a day in the refrigerator. This is great for preparing desserts ahead of time. To make the cream, soften one teaspoon unflavored gelatin in 1 tablespoon cold water for five minutes. Heat over low heat or in a microwave oven until the gelatin melts. Add the melted gelatin to 1 cup whipping cream, whisking so the gelatin and cream are well combined.

I didn't plan to buy a cone. But "just a taste please" turned into "whoa" and then "I cannot stop eating this . . . " at an alarming speed once I took my first few licks of this summer's edition of the Honeycomb ice cream at the Franklin Fountain. A large part of what makes it so amazing is the fact that it's a true "roof-to-cone" delight: The honey comes from the spring honeycomb of hives just upstairs on the Franklin Fountain's Old City roof managed by the Philadelphia Bee Co. But it's the sweet alchemy of the Berley brothers, co-owners of Franklin, that elevates this cone to magic.

WHAT IT IS - Around here, it's usually called Italian ice - that sweet and cold concoction that can be as refreshing as bodysurfing in the ocean on a scorching summer day. Italian ice, sometimes just called water ice, is usually whipped into a slurry of fruit and ice, and then frozen solid. It comes in lollipop colors and flavors like lemon, watermelon, and cherry. In other parts of the country, like Hawaii and Florida, variations called shave ice and snow cones are a similar frozen dessert.

Broad Street has been yarn-bombed! Perfect timing! With unseasonable snow in the forecast, the big concrete planters in front of the Merriam Theater are wearing sweaters, and the orange tulips are looking cozy as well as very pretty. It's a lovely installation created by University of the Arts students in conjunction with Knitting Peace , the first show of PIFA (Philadelphia Festival of the Arts) playing through Sunday at the Merriam Theater. The yarn-bombing UArts students are part of a remarkable interdisciplinary course.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat of March 8, 2016.   Craig LaBan: I'm curious to hear updates from the Philly Chefs Conference at Drexel, for which Joy Manning wrote an excellent preview. A lot of big names this year, from Glenn Roberts (of Anson Mills) to pioneering food science author Harold McGee, not to mention Philly's own stars. Highlights? Reader: The conference was a great event for anybody that would like to open a restaurant. It gives you some great insight on what pitfalls to avoid when starting out. But I must say the best part were the lunch spreads: tacos from South Philly Barbacoa, burgers, ramen, I believe, from Kensington Quarters, and the wine, liquor, and beer tastings in the afternoon.

Thank God. Help is here. I know, you've been worried. You thought the world was going to hell in a handbasket. You thought nobody cared about the serious problems we face, women in particular. But you needn't have worried. Because now there is a neck and chest cream. Thank God, right? I saw the commercial on TV a few minutes ago, and I was like, they are talking to me. Specifically, my dry neck. Which the ad called "crepey. " Like Death. You would think we'd met!

When Fox's hit show Empire premiered in January 2015, Philly actor Clayton Prince said his friends called to congratulate him on selling his show, about a troubled Philadelphia family in the recording industry. "There were some people who thought I sold it and I didn't take them along with me," Prince, 50, said. "I was like, 'There was nothing to take along. I was taken! I did not sell it.' " On Friday, Prince - whose legal name is Clayton Prince Tanksley - filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that producer Lee Daniels stole the concept for Empire from Prince after he pitched his show to Daniels at the Greater Philadelphia Film Office's "Philly Pitch" in April 2008.

The Berkey Creamery at Pennsylvania State University was at full throttle on a recent Friday morning. The Nittany Lions were playing Rutgers the next day - the second of five home football games in a row, something that hasn't happened in nearly a century. That means an extraordinarily high demand for "Peachy Paterno," "Alumni Swirl," and other frozen flavors distinctive to the oldest collegiate creamery in the United States, celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. On a usual day, the store serves 2,500 customers.

Over the Top, an occasional series in the Philadelphia Daily News, features local dishes that are so ridiculously delicious, so awesomely sinful, so, well, over-the-top, that they're worth obsessing over.   Last weekend left many Philadelphians feeling quite virtuous. Time to fix all that, with a Salty Pimp ice-cream cone from South Street's Big Gay Ice Cream . Ever since the NYC-based biz opened its Philly store in late April, fans have been streaming in for cake cones drizzled with own-make dulce de leche, filled with 4.8 ounces of organic-cream vanilla soft serve that's injected with more dulce, sprinkled with sea salt, and dipped into an all-natural chocolate shell whose recipe includes a dash of deliciously burnt-tasting cayenne.
