This was real good. I cut the recipe down to 1 glassful and it came out perfectly. I didn't add all that nutmeg though just a few shakes. Next time I'll add some sugar also to the egg whites. I'm so happy some one your age enjoys cooking so much. Keep up the good work, you're doing great. Made for Every Day's A Holiday.
A delicious creamy eggnog that really does have a nice feel to the tongue. I did cut the nutmeg back to just 1 teaspoon instead of the 1 1/2 listed and am very glad I did or it would have been over powering also made using 1% milk is that is what was on hand. Thanks for the holiday treat that will be enjoyed again.
