Vegan Eggnog Latte

Amazingly Good Eggnog

With all the holiday parties coming up, I thought you might want to give this Amazingly Good Eggnog recipe a try. I’ve never made eggnog before, but do enjoy it from the store. This eggnog was really good, just I think I did a tad too much nutmeg (although my husband disagrees, he loves it!). […]
