    Oh, my, I can’t believe I’m the first to link a recipe–I think that’s never happened before! The rutabaga gratin is a great holiday side dish and will make a convert of anyone who thinks they don’t like rutabaga! (like me). :)

    Wow! Amy I love love that egg nog recipe. I am hosting a holiday party next week and that would be a fun addition to my hot cocoa bar that I am having. Will totally have to try that!
    I linked up my cookies from our 12 Days of Cookies event this week!

    I’m wondering – if I wanted to substitute agave or honey for the stevia, about how much would I use?

    I’ve tried and tried and tried to like stevia. I’ve spent a small fortune on all the different kinds that were supposed to taste good…but I still have a very strong dislike for it.

    But I LOVE Eggnog!

    Hi Amy, I am new to Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays and think I’ve finally figured out the linking process. I added your badge to my blog tonight. I appreciate the opportunity to be included.

    I am mostly sugar free as well, which makes your recipes even more relevant to me. I’ve found keeping cane sugar out of my diet is key to staying healthy. I noticed that you’ve got a new link up to your book. I’m very excited to read it, and wish you the best of luck.

    Megan.

    Hi Miz Amy,
    I love your Eggnog and hope I will be able to try it soon. I brought over my Cran Pom Spaghetti, hope you and your readers like it. Thank you for sharing and thank you for hosting. You have a great week!

    Oh, gosh! I finally got a recipe posted and linked, and I couldn’t follow the directions correctly. Sorry, I didn’t get my name in the caption.

    Whoops! I forgot to add my name to the Chocolate Banana Bread.

    Amy, I’m so glad you mentioned SOS, I volunteered for them years ago. And it’s such a nice reminder that everyone can do something, from a free pledge, to $, to time…

    Thanks for hosting as usual!

    Hey Ames! Sorry I missed stopping by last week, but since I smashed my hand in a table leaf and then my daughter had a fever, I couldnt type too much or for too long! I did have some help from my wonderful friends and one of them, Jason of Alternative Nutrition News guest posted this lovely gluten free dutch oven upside down cake and I thought it would be perfect for your linky! I also wanted to comment on your terrific support of share our strength, and I will be sharing it on my thoughts on friday link love at a moderate life because I know just how important it is, especially at this time of year. I volunteer with a cooking group to help those in need in times of illness or loss and I also am going to be cooking this winter with my mom at a friday night homeless shelter at our church, so these issues are definitely in my mind as well as yours. Thanks so much for what you do! Big hugs! Alex

    Amy, what a priviledge it is to be participating in this event with you! I loved your post write-up and this egg-nog … well it looks like a rich and tasty treat : ) Thank you for not making it the “raw” version ;)

    Hi Amy–A moving post that will inspire us all to action–thank you! :-) Love the egg nog recipe, too. I used to love it so, but the heaviness of traditional egg nog has gotten to me over the years, so this version if terrific!

    I linked up Corn and Butter Bean Casserole, which allows one to get in some veggies and have comfort food at the same time. :-)

    Hugs,
    Shirley

    Oh Amy! You just made my holiday season. I’ve been wishing for an egg nog recipe. Can’t wait to try this.

    @Emily, Let me know what you think…it’s my first attempt at homemade eggnog and I love it. I hope you do too but if you think it needs something, let me know. Collaboration is always a good thing.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    This looks AWESOME!! I can’t wait to make it. (along with about 20 more I have checklisted on your site!) Thanks for your kind words. Happy holidays – I hope you enjoyed the flavor of eggnog as much as I do. :-) Thanks for taking on that challange for me.

    @Selina@CreativeJuicesDecor, I want to know your honest opinion, Selina. If I need to tweak a thing or two let me know. :) I am going to make your monogram plates for MY kitchen. They’re gorgeous!!

    Especially nice collection of recipes this week. I have whoopie pies on my radar, so nice to see a GF version. (Sorry about the duplicate linky – new computer, getting sensitivities adjusted. I just figured out how to turn off the annoying “pinch” feature.) Love this site, and kudos Amy on marshalling us foodies to reach out and give a gift of food to the hungry.

    I loooove eggnog. One year my sister made a very large amount of eggnog with tons of brandy in it from a recipe book, so it’s good to know that there are healthier eggnog recipes out there!

    Amy, I’m so happy to find a healthier eggnog recipe! My mom would make the best eggnog when I was young, but she said it wasn’t safe to eat without cooking it. Now, yours is doubly healthy — cooked egg and less sugar!
    Thanks!

    Reading your post makes me want to curl up by the fire and drink eggnog all night.

    Thanks for allowing me to link to my recipe for Pumpkin Mousse! The only dairy in this recipe is 3 tablespoons of butter (for 5 servings), so it is healthier in that way.
    Enjoy!

    Thank you so much for raising awareness :)

    I linked a recipe for a root vegetable casserole with gratin. It is homey, easy and comforting. Someone commented on it saying it could almost be like a stuffing side dish too – who knew!?!

    That eggnog looks wonderful and so much healthier than the versions I just reviewed!

    I love how you wrote this blog post – encouraging people to really think about food. It tends to be something we take for granted…
    Thank you for joining our progressive dinner party :-)
