It was definitely a proud moment, and one that made me think “okay, I can do this.” >> More

This pie is pretty much a big glass of bourbon-spiked eggnog poured into a gingersnap crust and topped with whipped cream. Yeah, I know. Swoon! Every holiday season I like to find new ways to work eggnog into my seasonal baking and this may be my greatest creation yet. Continue Reading…
