poll time again...

Simple question: Do you like eggnog?? 

Umm...It's okay. I could never drink a whole cup of it, but if my Dad is drinking eggnog I always take a sip.  It is something I have to smell every year because it smells sooo good!!!!

What do you think?  Is it something you like? I'd love for you to vote on the right and then tell me about your favorite drink at Christmas time in the comments.

    Warm Eggnog
2 large high quality eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

For those of you that don't know, this is what Nutmeg looks like.

Bring 2 eggs up to room temperature. Add the eggs to a blender and blend on high until a light creamy yellow color.
In a small saucepan, heat 1/3 C sugar with the half and half and cream over a gentle heat until you can see steam rising off the surface and some bubbles start to form around the edges of the pan. With the blender running, slowly pour the hot milk mixture into the eggs through the lid. Add the vanilla and continue blending the eggnog for a minute.
Pour into glasses and enjoy!!

Have a great weekend.



  1. I've never had it. What does it taste like? Does it taste anything like custard?

  2. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure what custard tastes like. Eggnog is very thick and since it has nutmeg in it, it tastes a lot like nutmeg. :)
    Braums sells really good eggnog in 1/2 gallons.


Come on, I dare you too... :) I'd love to know you were here.
