Eggnog + Chocolate Variation

I once believed that eggnog had to be one of two varieties: either the sickeningly sweet, slightly bubblegum flavored concoction that lives safely on grocery shelves for the entire duration of the holiday season or the nostalgic salmonella slurry made at home with raw eggs and an entire dairy herd’s worth of cream. Granted, I happily drank the store bought variety for many years, but I began to wonder if there was something better out there.

Disclaimer: this eggnog is much more attractive in real life. Perhaps my new year’s goal will be to learn how to photograph beverages…during the darkest part of the year…

Orange-Scented Brownies

I’m a sucker for orange and chocolate together, from the chocolate oranges my mom would put in the toe of our stockings every year to the Barefoot Contessa’s orange chocolate chunk cake to the chocolate covered “orange sticks” you see everywhere around the holidays. It was really only a matter of time before these brownies happened.

Garlic and Dijon Brussels Sprouts

These sprouts and I go way back. In fact, they were my very first post on Em Hungry 1.0 more than 5 years ago, and they were the second most viewed recipe on the site! (Due to one loyal reader and cook, haha. Moms are the best.) At any rate, I figured it was time to share them here, and with pictures this time.
