Homemade Eggnog

Are you a regular eggnog drinker during the holidays?! :) Isn't that rich, sweet and spicy drink something you look forward to once winter comes along? Mmmmm. I'm not sure where this recipe came from, but my family and I are sure glad it came across our kitchen. Hope you enjoy it too!

Ingredients: (makes 1 quart)
~ 4 cups whole milk (or 2c 1% + 2c heavy cream-this is key for thickness)
~ 8 egg yokes 
~ 1 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
~ 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
~ 1/8 tsp ground cloves
~ 1 tsp ground nutmeg
~ 4 1/2-5 Tbsp. Maple syrup or raw honey (this depends on how sweet you like things)

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend on medium for 30 seconds or until frothy (oh, the froth!).

Merry Christmas, Friends.

Roasted Balsamic Brussel Sprouts (the only way I eat them!)


It's great to be back on writing tangents about things we love (like for instance...FOOD!) ;)  I'm going to share a super quick recipe with you today.  We all see brussel sprouts in the grocery store, but really...What do we do with them to make them a little more edible??  It's a tough one.  Especially with kids.  Ok...and adults.  But they're good for us! So I found a great recipe that allows me to boldly grab a bag full of those little green balls of nutrition at the grocery store now and be confident they won't just sit in my refrigerator until I throw them away.  Which definitely happened a lot in the past.  You too?

The credit for this recipe is fully given to White on Rice Couple, click the name to get the full recipe. I just wanted to show you how easy it is to do and how exciting it is when you do it yourself! :)

So here are my step-by-step pictures and pictures of the ingredients.  For the rest, please take a look at their site and thank them for solving the Brussel Sprout dilemma!!

Ok now go try them yourself, you're going to really like them! If not, well...blame the White on Rice Couple.  :) JUST KIDDING! But seriously...

Until next time, I hope your days are full of God's beauty!  Thanks for being here!

Chelsea :)
