{{fa}}Nothing says "holiday spirit" like a glass of eggnog! It tastes like Christmas, and when you combine just a few simple ingredients, you have a treat the whole family can enjoy. Learn how to make easy eggnog for your family, a traditional batch large enough for a party, or a glass of iced eggnog to enjoy on your own.
 
[[Category:Holiday Cooking]]
 
== Ingredients ==
 
=== Simple Eggnog ===
 
''Makes 8 servings''
 
*4 egg yolks
 
*1 cup (240 ml) milk
 
*1 cup (240 ml) cream
 
*½ cups (120 ml) white sugar
 
*½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
 
*¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) nutmeg
 
*¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) cinnamon
 
*¾ cup (180 ml) rum or brandy
 
=== Traditional Eggnog ===
 
''Makes 24 servings''
 
*12 large eggs
 
*4½ cups (1 L) milk
 
*1½ pints (710 ml) heavy whipping cream
 
*1½ cups (360 ml) sugar
 
*Ground nutmeg, to taste
 
*3 cups (710 ml) bourbon, brandy, or dark rum
 
=== Light Iced Eggnog ===
 
''Makes 2 servings''
 
*1 to 2 cups (240 to 480 ml) ice cubes
 
*2 small eggs
 
*½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) cinnamon
 
*¼ cup (60 ml) agave nectar
 
*1½ cups (360 ml) almond milk
 
*3 fl oz (90 ml) cognac
 
*3 fl oz (90 ml) rum
 
*2 fl oz (60 ml) cream sherry
 
  
== Steps ==
 
=== Making Simple Eggnog ===
 
# Create the milk mixture. In a large saucepan, combine the milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. Cook on medium low heat until the mixture comes to a low boil, stirring occasionally.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Failing to stir the milk mixture as it boils can cause it to burn and stick to the bottom of the pan, which may ruin the taste of your eggnog.
 
# Make the egg mixture. In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks and the sugar, and beat or whisk until fluffy.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*If using an electric beater, beat the egg mixture on low speed for one or two minutes.
 
# Add the milk mixture slowly to the egg mixture and cook. Whisk the milk mixture into the room temperature egg mixture until the ingredients are well incorporated. Pour the combined mixture back into the saucepan. Cook it over medium heat until it becomes thick, which takes about three to five minutes. [[Image:Make Eggnog Step 3 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Eggs must be tempered, which means it's important to add the milk mixture gradually to the room temperature egg mixture. Combining them too quickly or adding the eggs directly to the hot saucepan can cause the eggs to curdle and ruin the eggnog.
 
# Remove the eggnog from the burner. Let it cool at room temperature for about an hour or two, or until the mixture itself reaches room temperature[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 4 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
# Add the remaining the ingredients. Stir in the cream and rum or brandy. Mix the eggnog well.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 5 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Feel free to skip the rum/brandy for a non-alcoholic version.
 
# Cover the eggnog tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate it overnight to let the flavors combine, and serve with a dash of nutmeg and a cinnamon stick garnish.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 6 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*The eggnog is best if enjoyed within several days. Refrigerate unused portions and toss it after a week or if the eggnog develops a foul odor.
 
 
=== Making Traditional Eggnog ===
 
#Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Crack each egg in half over a bowl and gently transfer the yolk from shell to shell, letting the white drop into the bowl. Transfer the remaining yolks to a separate medium mixing bowl.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 7 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*It's a good idea to separate the whites from one egg into a small bowl and, if the separation is a success (no yolk gets in), pour the whites from that egg into the large bowl. Repeat this process for each egg to minimize the risk of adding unseparated yolks or shell fragments to the main mixing bowl.
 
#*If you get yolk in the whites, save that egg for breakfast: whites will not whip when contaminated with egg yolk.
 
# Beat the egg whites and sugar. Using an electric beater set on medium speed, beat the egg whites until they turn white and frothy. Add half the sugar and beat just until soft peaks begin to form.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 8 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*You can technically use a whisk instead of an electric beater, but the process will take more time and energy.
 
#*"Soft peaks" should just begin to hold their form when you remove the mixer, but they'll melt back into the whites after a second or two.<ref>http://www.thekitchn.com/a-visual-guide-soft-peaks-firm-115557</ref>
 
# Mix the egg yolks with sugar. Mix the remaining half of the sugar into the egg yolks in a separate bowl. Beat the mixture with a whisk until it is well blended.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 9 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
# Combine the egg mixtures. Gently fold the egg yolks into the beaten egg whites using a spatula, pouring slowly. The goal is to keep the fluffiness of the whites, which means you can stir too quickly or press too hard.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 10 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
# Add the rum, milk and cream. Slowly pour the rum into the egg mixture, gently folding it in with your spatula. If you're serving the eggnog to children, you can leave out the alcohol. Next, add the milk and cream slowly to the bowl, gently stirring them in.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 11 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Start with 4 cups (1 L) of milk, then add more later to adjust the consistency. If you're adding alcohol, you may not need any more milk.
 
#*Some cooks recommend heating the milk and cream before adding to the egg mixture to help thicken and slightly cook the eggs. If you're worried about eating raw eggs, follow this step.
 
#*Taste the eggnog and decide whether to add more alcohol.
 
#*For thicker eggnog, reduce the amount of milk by half.
 
#Whip the eggnog. Beat the reserved half of the cream in another medium bowl until nearly stiff, then gently fold the whipped cream into the mixture. Transfer the finished eggnog to a large punch bowl for serving.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 12 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Stiff peaks should be firm and should not collapse into themselves when you pull away the mixer.<ref>http://www.thekitchn.com/a-visual-guide-soft-peaks-firm-115557</ref>
 
#Serve in clear glasses and top with whipped cream. Grate or sprinkle some nutmeg on top for a pretty touch.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 13 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*You can safely save leftovers in a sealed dish in the refrigerator for a few days or up to one week.
 
 
=== Making Light Iced Eggnog ===
 
#Blend the milk and ice. Fill the blender half full with ice cubes. Pour in the almond milk. Blend the milk with the ice until it becomes smooth and frothy.<ref>http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/eggnog-recipe-00100000070570/index.html</ref>[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 14 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Almond milk makes this version of eggnog appropriate for lactose intolerant guests.
 
#*If desired, you could swap the almond milk for soy milk, dairy milk, or other nut milks for a slight twist.
 
#Mix the eggs, agave nectar and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and the agave nectar with a whisk, making sure they are well incorporated. Stir in the cinnamon.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 15 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Since you won't be able to heat this recipe, it's crucial to use pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
 
#Blend the remaining ingredients. Pour the egg mixture, the cognac, the rum, and the cream sherry into the blender. Puree the ingredients until they reach a smooth consistency.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 16 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*Skip the alcohol if serving this to minors or if you prefer non-alcoholic eggnog.
 
#Serve the eggnog. Pour the eggnog into a glass and serve with a straw. This iced eggnog makes a delicious Christmastime treat when you're in the mood for something light and fresh.[[Image:Make Eggnog Step 17 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 
#*It's best to enjoy this eggnog shortly after making it since the eggs are still raw, but you will likely be able to store it in a sealed container in your refrigerator for a few days if there are leftovers. Discard the eggnog if it takes on a strange odor or texture, however.

{{Video:Make Eggnog|}}
 
 
== Tips ==
 
*If you want to make non-alcoholic eggnog, simply skip the rum and the bourbon. Then folks who want to spike their nog can add liquor to their cup as they like.
 
*If you're having a family get-together, double the ingredients and make one alcoholic batch and one regular batch.
 
*Be gentle during the entire mixing process. Don't over-beat the eggs or the cream; the whipped cream will begin to taste like butter when whipped too long.
 
*Add milk to change the consistency of the eggnog if it is too thick.
 
*After a while, the mixture starts to separate to make a heavy fluid with a fluffy head, so when serving it, make sure you get a representative sample of each.
 
 
== Warnings ==
 
* If you add alcohol to the eggnog, be careful. If someone drinks too much, make sure that the person stays in for the night. Be vary of an [[Treat a Hangover|hangover]].
 
*While eggnog is a holiday tradition, increased awareness that consuming raw eggs has the potential to cause foodborne illness has led to some advocating cooking your nog. If you want to enjoy raw eggnog without the worry, you may buy pasteurized shell eggs from many grocery stores. Raw, non-alcoholic eggnog made with Davidson's Safest Choice™ Eggs is safe for your entire family including children, pregnant women, and older adults. Davidson's Safest Choice® Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural warm water bath to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. <ref>http://www.safeeggs.com/safest-choice-pasteurized-eggs/how-we-pasteurize-eggs</ref> The traditional explanation concerning the safety of eggnog is that the liquor is strong enough to kill whatever problems the eggs introduce. Food poisoning studies show that the risk is reduced with strong liquor. However, the FDA does not advise counting on alcohol to kill all the bacteria. <ref>http://www.foodsafety.gov/blog/eggnog.html</ref>

# Find out if you are just misinterpreting his actions. Is he just tired? Does he always act this way but you never really noticed? Find out if he is really upset so he won't get confused.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 1.jpg|center]]
 
# Find out what's bothering him. Is it something to do with the relationship? Is it a family problem? Is he stressed out from school or work? Figure out what's bothering him so you choose the right approach and solution.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 2.jpg|center]]
 
# Smile. Sometimes just a friendly smile can brighten his day. Don't be offended if he says something like "why are you so happy?" that just means you need to care for him even more. Also hugs can comfort.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 3.jpg|center]]
 
# Give him space. Sometimes he will just need to work things out on his own. Walk away for a while but make sure he knows you're there for him and will talk if he wants.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 4.jpg|center]]
 
# Encourage him to talk and vent, but don't be pushy. You don't want him to confuse caring with nosy.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 5.jpg|center]]
 
# Be willing to sit and talk, whether you're on the phone, texting, or in person, let him vent out his feelings with you. Don't make excuses for anything he says and don't bring up problems from either one of your pasts. That is unless his current problems are related to the ones in the past.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 6.jpg|center]]
 
# Find a private spot and let him cry. Be willing to sit with him and let him vent. Whether or not he is crying or yelling or being silent. Sit with him until he's calmed down and ready to talk. If the situation is appropriate and/or you are both really close, hold him tightly and whisper "it's ok. I'm here." or make shushing sounds.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 7.jpg|center]]
 
# Give him a back rub or hold hands. He will feel better if he knows you don't feel awkward so get close to him.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 8.jpg|center]]
 
# Once you are done, let him know you're always there for him and you care for him. If it's true (and only if it's true) tell him you love him.[[Image:Care for Your Upset Boyfriend Step 9.jpg|center]]

===Identifying Signs of Dental Disease===
 
===Identifying Signs of Dental Disease===
#Pay attention to unusually bad breath. If your dog's breath is worse than usual, it could be a sign that your dog has dental disease. With dental disease, bacteria and infected tissue can exude a putrid smell once it has developed quite a bit.<ref>http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/features/perlis-gum-disease-dogs?page=2</ref>

#Look for signs that your dog is having oral pain. If your dog is pawing at its mouth or jaw, that is a sign that it may have a dental infection. If it is having a hard time eating, that may also be a sign that there is a problem in its mouth. These are behavioral clues that you need to do some investigation in your dog's mouth.<ref>http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/features/perlis-gum-disease-dogs?page=2</ref>

#*Do not let your dog suffer by ignoring signs it is in pain. If a dog is showing its pain outwardly, it usually means that the dog is in pretty bad pain. Most dogs are good at hiding pain, so when you can actually see that it is in pain, that means it is serious.<ref>http://www.preventivevet.com/dogs/how-can-i-tell-if-my-dog-is-in-pain</ref>

#Have the dog's teeth assessed by a veterinarian. Call your veterinarian and make an appointment to get your dog's teeth looked at. At the appointment your veterinarian is likely to first ask you a variety of questions about your dog's symptoms and when they began. He or she will then proceed to look at your dog's teeth and assess their condition.

#Get your dog a professional dental cleaning. If your veterinarian thinks that there may be a problem with your dog's teeth, then they will probably suggest a dental cleaning exam that will allow them to get a better look at the dental problems. A professional dental cleaning includes a thorough examination and x-rays of the teeth and jaw. This will allow the veterinary dentist to understand the extent of the disease and how best he or she should proceed with treatment.<ref>http://www.avdc.org/periodontaldisease.html</ref>

#Be prepared for the worst. First time breeders don't have established reputations or references and run the risk of not selling their puppies. Ask yourself what you will do if your puppies don't sell, and if you are willing to care for them on a long-term basis if they don't. While unscrupulous breeders often get rid of puppies that don't sell, or sell them to laboratories or other undesirable buyers, good breeders will accept the liability. You should also be prepared, financially and mentally, for the possibility of having unhealthy puppies in your litter.<ref> http://americanshihtzuclub.org/facts_before_breeding</ref>

#Make sure that both Shih Tzus are healthy. You must make sure that both the female (dam) and male (sire) are healthy and genetically fit for breeding, and that their vaccinations are current. Testing should be done for conditions that the Shih Tzu breed is prone to, such as heredatible eye diseases, Hip Dysplasia, Renal Dysplasia, thyroid disorders, and hearing loss. Once a dog is cleared of one of these conditions, it can be registered with the appropriate registry (e.g. once a dog is tested and cleared of hereditable eye diseases, it can be registered with the the local Canine Eye Registry).<ref>http://www.allshihtzu.com/breeding-a-shih-tzu</ref>>[[Image:Train Your Shih Tzu Step 9.jpg|thumb|description]]

*Uncoated heavy metals like zinc, lead (from plant weights) and elemental copper will kill shrimp, especially copper. If a tank has ever had elemental copper in it, you will have a hard time keeping shrimp alive. Copper sulfate in fish foods is safe as it is a copper compound in low amounts. The dangerous stuff is elemental copper (copper metal). The copper compound found in snail killing concoctions is toxic to shrimp and inverts because it is so concentrated.

* Purchase quality hair care tools. Natural materials are better than synthetic, but not all natural material tools are equal. Inspect combs, brushes, and accessories for sharp, rough, or uneven edges, seams, and fasteners that could scrape, snag, or otherwise damage your hair strands. Choose well crafted (if a product claims to be "hand finished", you're on the right track, but inspect anyway!) in favor of inexpensive, and keep items clean so they will last. It may be a "splurge", but in the long term, it's an investment that is beyond worth it if you want your long locks to be In their absolute best condition.

Your betta might mistake any flashy fish for another Betta. Avoid other aggressive fish or fin-nippers, such as barbs. Danios, some tetras and most rasboras will work.

*Atheism is not a belief; it is a doubt. This is important to understand when discussing Christ. Atheists tend to favor evidence based-reasoning. Instead of trying to convert them from one belief to another, think of it as trying to provide evidence for a belief. Present your evidence, listen openly to their responses, and accept their choice. The rest is up to God.

* Avoid intelligent atheists. The more intelligent they are, the less likely these methods will work. If they are smart enough, it may even backfire and they may convert you. The best strategy if they seem too intelligent is simply to run away.

*Never trick someone. Never lie. When inviting an atheist to a Christian function, make sure they know exactly how overtly religious the event is. Is it just a social function, a church service, or is it a Bible reading?
