The first post in a blog is always awkward. It sets the tone for the rest of the blog. It's like writing the first sentence in a thesis paper, except with a blog, you don't usually do rough drafts and rewrites. Whatever you type sticks...forever. It takes a lot not to sound like an idiot. So why blog at all? Well, my sister put me up to it.

My sister (, has long been known as the cook of the family. She recently started blogging. I got married three years ago and now, with my very own kitchen, I started cooking. My sister and I have been trading recipes, and with each exchange she ends, "You should start a blog." So here I am. Blogging.

I don't really have much to blog about this morning, which further adds to the awkwardness of the very first blog. It's 9am on a Sunday. I'm drinking my coffee and watching my daughter discover her feet, (She's two months old). I haven't cooked anything today to blog about, but I don't want to leave off without any type of food being discussed or recipe posted, so I will post an old recipe I created a few years ago for (drumroll)...Microwaved Eggnog For One. It's not the best option for a first post, but it's not the worst either. And if you love eggnog, you'll like the ease of this recipe. It takes less than 5 minutes!

With regard to posts...I promise they'll get better.

Microwave Eggnog for One

1 large egg
1-2 tablespoons sugar
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
8 ounces milk or half-and-half, combination of the two
1 dash nutmeg or cinnamon

1. Beat egg, sugar and vanilla with wire whisk. Pour into large mug.
2. Add milk and mix well.
3. Microwave for about 2 1/2 – 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. DO NOT BOIL. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve immediately for those who enjoy warm or cool otherwise.


  1. Congrats on starting a blog! I always like to find new bloggers. It can be a really fun hobby and a good way to unwind. It's also fun to get followers on your own and pretend you're PW. Well, I guess more fun for me than you since your a murse. That would be kinda weird. Anyway, welcome to blogland!

  2. What an awesome first post! I am so excited. And I love eggnog and wouldn't think of making up a whole batch just for me (because we KNOW Sara won't try it). Can't wait to read your next post!

  3. I had to post as anonymous because I haven't figured out how to post a comment as myself! Love, Jess
