Fresh Eggs DailyI love making homemade eggnog for the holidays. Since all the eggs I cook and bake with are fresh, laid by our own backyard flock, and have been handled properly, I feel confident making recipes that include partially cooked eggs.

This eggnog is a holiday tradition at our house. Our fresh eggs, along with scraped vanilla bean and freshly ground nutmeg, make it truly a guilty pleasure guaranteed to deliver plenty of holiday cheer. My recipe is pretty basic - adapted from a combination of Martha Stewart's Classic Eggnog recipe and Emeril's Eggnog recipe - and I always get compliments when I serve it to friends and family. It is a little more involved than some recipes, but so worth the extra effort!

(My recipe does contain alcohol, but please feel free to just omit the liquor if you want to make a family-friendly version.)

Egg nog is even better with raw yolks then whipping the whites into a meringue and folding that into the egg-cream-booze mixture
