Happy New Year Nog


Happy new year! I’ll spare you the year in review (for now) & I would like to leave you with a recipe for my favorite thing that I’ve enjoyed this holiday season: Egg Nog. This is the virgin stuff & WAAAAAY better than the junk you buy at the grocery store. It’s cheaper & incredibly easy to make.

I have so many fond memories of my mom making delicious holiday foods (the nog being one of them). I can’t help but get a little nostalgic whenever I take a swig. I also need to point something out, you’ll be swigging this, definitely not sipping. So yum!

I’m a little annoyed with how this picture turned out, I haven’t put up curtains in our new place (for diffusing natural light) and I’m taking this on top of our plastic folding table. Next year’s resolution is to resolve our furniture. Get a new table, fix up the chairs (or get new ones) and stay organized.

      This sounds good, I’m going to try it! For some reason ever year I buy alcoholic egg nog forgetting that alcoholic egg nog is absolutely disgusting.

      So, the eggs remain raw? It actually looks and sounds delicious, but having been pregnant the majority of the past three years, I guess I’m still a little wary of raw eggs. Have you ever made it with an alternative?

      Sounds yummy! I can’t have raw eggs so I’m going to try it with substitute. Do you use a small or large pkg of the instant pudding?

      @Shaela – i use a small package of pudding mix. traditionally egg nog is served hot, you could heat it up (which would cook the egg). i prefer the cold stuff, though. not sure what would be a good substitute.

      @Samarahuel – the eggs do remain raw. I’ve made this very often without a problem. I’m pretty sure you just neet to make sure they’re fresh & refrigerated. Traditionally, though, the eggnog is served hot, so that would take care of the raw-ness of the eggs.

      So, this is a bit strange, but I wondered how you got that coaster? I made it in 2008 for a coaster swap!
