Has anyone here ever tried that powdered eggnog? I tried it this year, but I accidentally mixed it in with milk and it was way too rich. I didn't read the directions. The second time I used water, like it told me too and it tasted like sweet watery powdered milk.

It was terrible.

Have any of you had success with the powdered form? Maybe I should avoid it next year. It really tasted awful. Both times. :P

I don't do eggnog, but I am looking forward to trying eggnog and blackberry ice cream at Bonnie Brae Ice Cream with my friends over the holidays. Attention Denver Brokies...meetup forming now!

I took this to the office potluck and it was a big hit, until I told them what was in it, then people starting tiptoeing around it.

Celery Victor

Trim 2 Hearts of Celery and cut into 2 inch spears. Be sure to peel the celery to trim any strings. Slice roasted sweet red pepper and fit a slice on top of each celery spear. Add a slice of anchovy on top of each pepper slice. Finish by placing 3 caperberries on each spear. May be spritzed with fresh lemon juice.

I'm guessing the anchovies turned them off?  ???

I will have to peruse this thread closely over the weekend. I need something for a potluck at work on Tuesday.

And for the record, Lee, I think your dish sounds yummy!

This is my favorite all time appetizer.

Hot Artichoke Dip

INGREDIENTS

2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish. Blend together the cheese, mayonnaise and whipping cream. Stir in the artichokes, green onions and pimentos. Mix well, and transfer to the prepared baking dish.

Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.

serve with Ritz Vegetable Crackers or Bagle Chips  :D Delicious!

This one (with some additions I found online) is getting tested on the work crowd at lunch tomorrow; assuming I don't flub it, it will be joining me Christmas Eve after Meeting too.

Yep and yep :)

The 'mods' I read about involve adding finely chopped red or green peppers or pimentos to make it look seasonal. So, hey - fiber!

I´ve never had egg nodd, so that´s my "big plan" for Christmas. Doesn´t seem too difficult to make either

It's really better if you go ahead and get it in the pre-made carton form  - at the grocery. Sprinkle a little nutmeg in it and a splash of whiskey and you're good to go! ;)
