Cooked Eggnog
Good set of ingredients, but better to scald the milk and pour slowly into egg/sugar mixture while stirring constantly and then heat on low until thickened than to heat the egg directly in the pot. Scrambled my eggs doing it as directed. Should have followed my custard cooking method.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting
Mine came out plenty firm to pipe onto cupcakes. Great taste! Added some cocoa powder to half of it to make chocolate icing, too.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili
I made this with about a pound of cubed chicken since that's what I had. 1 can black beans, 1 can red beans, 1 can white beans. I drained the beans before I noticed not to, so I added in a little salt. I pureed a can of diced tomatoes, which added plenty of moisture. Also added about a tsp sugar and a tsp of chicken boullion. Oh, and used marjoram instead of oregano (which is a sub I usually make since I like the flavor better). Served over white rice with sour cream on top. My family adored this chili! Even my picky kids inhaled it! The herbs add a nice, savory flavor and the chili comes out flavorful, but not too spicy. Didn't have a lot of time to let it simmer all together (about 10 minutes or so), so I bet it would taste even better after letting the flavors mix more. Only have a tiny bit leftover to see!
