Holiday Week: Classic Egg Nog

Here’s a confession… when I was a kid you couldn’t get me to drink egg nog to save my life. Yeah. I hate it. A lot. It’s funny how your tastes evolve as you get older, because now you can’t keep me a way from egg nog! Or maybe it’s the rum…

Either way, every year as December creeps closer I get excited for egg nog. And while we are confessing things here… I had never expereinced homemade egg nog until two weeks ago. Again, I know, crazy! For some strange reason I had this preconceived notion that making egg nog from scratch was extremely difficult. Kind of like my fear of making crème brûlée. So when I was perusing the Egg Farmers of Canada website looking for some devilled egg inspiration I stumbled upon, what appeared to be, an insanely easy recipe for egg nog. So I tried it. It was soooo easy. And soooo tasty. And I’m sooooo crazy for not trying it earlier.

    I'm the opposite of you, Brittany. I loved eggnog as a kid and now…not so much. Maybe this easy recipe will convince me otherwise. Beautiful styling and photos as per usual.
