Ingredient Note: This recipe originated in the early 20th century before Craisins (a dried raisin-like cranberry) were developed. If you can find these in your store, try them instead.

Eggnog is a beverage that only appears in the dairy section during the holidays. A few years back I stumbled upon this recipe for a fine quick bread that takes advantage of the subtle yet spicy flavor of eggnog.
This recipe uses an old fashioned (but effective) technique to make quick breads moist. You may remember eating “poke cake” where the cook poked the surface with a toothpick and then poured liquid Jell-O over the top. This uses the same technique but with an herbal topping.
Feel like trying a new bread with hearty flavor? This loaf combines the earthy flavor of walnuts and rosemary with spicy taste of garlic and black pepper. Try serving this for a dinner accompaniment.
One of the most popular breakfast foods we can make is muffins. They can be eaten warm or cold, with butter, cream cheese or jam, and will withstand the trip to the office where you can heat them in the office kitchen microwave to enjoy with your morning coffee or tea.
