My Food Club friends' requests for traditional American Christmas fare this month sent me hunting for the perfect homemade eggnog recipe.

I found this one, and it fits the bill.  A kid-friendly, well-heated, no-frills eggnog.  We've been making it over and over again, because, as it turns out, Daniel is the world's biggest homemade eggnog fan.  Well, maybe the second-biggest...
And I never knew that eggnog is a good picture of love:  it doesn't look like much, perhaps, and it might even turn some people's stomachs, but when you try it, the stuff fills you up, head to toe.  And in the end, you hope you don't get salmonella?  (all analogies fall apart)
