Alcohol Free Eggnog Recipe For Those That Don’t Like Eggnog
Eggnog is one of those things that you either like or don’t. I don’t know if there is an in between, except perhaps poorly made eggnog.
I have been team “I don’t like eggnog,” but my older son has been asking me to buy it for him every.single.time I go to the store. So, for our Christmas activity advent calendar, I added “Make Eggnog” to the list.
Growing up my Grandpa made it and I drank it, until I figured out what it was and then I couldn’t get past the mental block of drinking eggs.
Turns out, when you make it yourself it is pretty darn good.
I can’t believe I just typed that.
Here’s my Alcohol Free Eggnog Recipe for those that don’t like eggnog. Who knows, it may just convert you to an eggnog drinker.
In a medium sized bowl, add egg yolks and sugar. Beat with a mixer at high speed until pale yellow and thick in texture.
Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and milk to the mixture and set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they form soft peaks.
Add egg white mixture, and whipped cream to the first bowl. Mix until combined.
Serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg on top.

If you are like me and have fond memories of your grandparents whipping up a batch, but later found yourself not liking it so much, I encourage you to try this recipe. It might just change your mind like it did mine.
Do you like eggnog?
Have you ever made it homemade?
I have a confession to make. I have the biggest sweet tooth ever. My favorite desserts are FULL of sugar and insanely sweet. When somebody says something is too rich, I look at them like they are crazy. Too rich is not in my vocabulary.
It should be no surprise that my favorite cake is one of the sweetest ones ever..
I love it. Everything about it… Everything!! I love how bright and colorful it is, and of course how sweet it is.
And the sprinkles?
Perhaps my fav! I am like a big kid when it comes to sprinkles. They are a must.
Can you tell I’ve been thinking about Funfetti lately? Unfortunately it isn’t cake season. It’s hot chocolate season.
With that in mind, I HAD to recreate my favorite cake in drink form since it’s much easier to make hot chocolate on the regular than it is to bake a cake. Here is what I came up with.
This funfetti hot chocolate is super sweet and will impress your kids – and other funfetti cake lovers. It’s also super cute and party friendly.
It might not be fully homemade, but it is fully delicious.
Funfetti Hot Chocolate
1 mug full of steaming hot milk (or water, whatever)
2 packets of instant hot chocolate mix
Lots of mini marshmallows
Top with a 1-3 teaspoons of sprinkles
Drink up you guys, this stuff is delicious!
Do you like Funfetti cake? What about hot chocolate?
Grab your spoons, it’s Chili season!! Perhaps I should start off by saying any time is Chili time for me. I don’t discriminate based on weather, but I especially love it during the Fall/Winter seasons. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time to make the beans homemade on top of making the chili, so this Chili recipe is for those times.
This Chili can be made using only 5 ingredients and is super quick to make. It’s also delicious, but most chili is.
Best of all, it’s budget friendly and enough to feed a family of at least 4. We always have leftovers.
The full recipe is at the bottom of this post.
5 Simple Steps:
Step 1: Gather your ingredients. I’m a big fan of Best Choice as you can see here. I’ve never felt like I was getting below quality ingredients with this brand. Best Choice is affordable and totally not sponsoring this post.
Step 2: Brown your ground beef with your onion. I actually like to add some garlic powder or diced garlic to mine.
Step 3: Drain and rinse your beans. If you prefer, you could skip the draining and rinsing, but I prefer to rinse my canned beans.
Step 4: Add all the ingredients including the cooked meat to a large pot. Stir, cook, and simmer until all the flavors are combined.

Forgive that terrible infomercial intro, but this Apple Pie Cheesecake is seriously the best thing you will make this Fall. It’s the kind of recipe where everybody wants a copy. I suggest not giving it to them 😉
I gotta say, the first time I ever made this recipe was also the first time I ever baked a cheesecake. I was a little nervous of how it would turn it, but this Apple Pie Cheesecake recipe is hard to mess up.
So, keep the recipe for yourself, but share this delicious dessert with your friends, family, coworkers.. Or you know, just hide in your closet after the kids go to bed and eat it yourself.
