Homemade Eggnog

Taking Route : Homemade Eggnog 

Several days ago, I shared a chai hot chocolate recipeand mentioned how it would have to become a Christmas drink tradition, much like our homemade eggnog. A friendly reader asked if I might be willing to share THAT recipe and I thought to myself, “What a perfect excuse to go ahead and make some eggnog!” I’ve gotten a teensy bit behind schedule with the season this year (since we added a precious little girl to our family a mere 6 weeks ago), so I’ve been trying to play catch-up with all of our Christmas traditions. Eggnog has been on my mind ever since the month started!

My husband and I teamed up in the making of this delicious beverage. I’m sure it could be a one-person job but I just didn’t feel like keeping up with whether or not the milk was getting too hot or if I was going to accidentally scramble, rather than temper, some eggs in the process of making this delicious treat. Plus, I had the baby strapped on me. Naturally, my toddler didn’t want to be left out of the fun happening in our tiny kitchen, so he joined us. This made for a nice, sweaty warm, family-fun experience.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
