Jeffrey Morgenthaler loves egg nog, but he can’t stand the thick, gelatinous goop they sell at the grocery store. Even if you were to cut it with alcohol, it’s still so overly pasteurized and full of preservatives that it would be anything but enjoyable to slug down at a Christmas party. So a few years ago, he set about concocting the simplest, tastiest Egg Nog recipe he could. In this episode of The Morgenthaler Method, Jeffrey builds on his original recipe and demonstrates the hugely popular Egg Nog recipe from Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon. Either one is tasty and perfect for the holidays. Enjoy!

Easy Crab Cakes
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
Basic Boneless Roasted Leg of Lamb
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
This classic should be in every Southern woman's repertoire. A moist, delicious Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake pleases crowds of all ages, and is the perfect dessert to bring to a neighbor, to a potluck, or to a summer party.
