For anyone new to the blog, I do have my traditions and eggnog is a big one.
Each year I share this recipe for Bert's Eggnog with readers. This stuff is the nectar of the gods. You need to prepare it the night before in order to let the flavors come together.
Those who were raised on eggnog from a carton won't like it. Those who despise eggnog because they think real eggnog tastes like that from a carton will be shocked–in a good way. I've made many an eggnog convert with this amazing recipe. The story of how it came to be part of our holiday tradition is on the document.
Also, I'm throwing in my favorite gingersnap recipe. I no longer eat wheat flour, but this was a staple for years. Enjoy these recipes and get your eggnog ready!
