Eggnog is such a controversial subject. People either love it or hate it - I find there is no middle ground with this sweet, creamy, holiday beverage. We are an eggnog family. Every Christmas my mom brings out the vintage cut-glass punch bowl, the spiced rum, and the nutmeg grater, and sets it all up at the bar. Everyone has a glass or two, and then we are finished until next year.
This recipe is not my own. Full credit goes to my 11-year-old son. He has a sudden interest in cooking and has been watching old reruns of Good Eats on Netflix. My son is the sole vegetarian in our house, and sometimes I buy him special vegetarian treats. I recently bought him frozen corn and poblano tamales, and while he liked them enough, he asked if we could try making them better. I told him yes, thinking (hoping) he would just forget about it. A week later he asked me to buy corn husks and masa. I said sure, and threw them in a cabinet - out of sight. The next day he came to the kitchen with a recipe written on graph paper and his kindle with Alton Brown's tamale episode ready to show me. I knew he would not relent.

These are a few of my favorite things
The holidays are upon us and it is time to share a few of my favorite things for my Instant Pot®. They will make perfect gifts for your favorite people. Whether you know someone who already has an Instant Pot® or are already buying one and want to also give a few accessories, here are some great ideas to share.
I want to share a fun recipe for your Instant Pot® - Salted Caramel Sauce. Yes, I know you can easily make it on your stove top. Yes, I realize that this might not be the best way to use your Instant Pot®, but it definitely works and was pretty fun to make. We celebrate Christmas at our house, and after indulgent desserts at Thanksgiving, holiday treats at gatherings throughout December, and my Aunt Jane's famous chocolate mousse on Christmas Eve, we like to go EASY for Christmas dessert. My mom, sister, and I bake delicious cookies every year, and we bake enough for a small army. After sharing with friends and neighbors, we make one last beautiful platter just for us (because we never sample cookies as we go - KIDDING.) We also serve bowls of ice cream with hot fudge and salted caramel sauce to drizzle on top. Nothing fussy or difficult and a lovely way to wrap up the Christmas season.
