Kringle fans rejoice! The new holiday flavor debut arrives today from O&H Danish Bakery. And at the same time, last year's gem - egg nog kringle - is back, too.
Each year when State Fair rolls around, there are a couple sites on the grounds that I have to visit. One of them is the Wisconsin Products Pavilion. Here are seven must-try dairyland delicacies in the pavilion.
It might be tempting to concoct unique holiday cocktails, but mixmaster extraordinaires recommend otherwise. Remember, classics are classics for a reason. Check out this short video featuring Andy Braun from Drink Wisconsinbly Pub.
I think I may have invented a new holiday quaff a couple years ago. While I can't guarantee someone hadn't already come up with this, I discovered it for myself two years ago and just had to share. I reprise my 2011 post here in case you've got a container of egg nog sitting in the fridge.
I've never made a big secret about the fact that I'm not crazy about Christmas. As a Jewish person, I don't celebrate it, and growing up, it mostly served to remind me that I was different than my friends. Believe it or not, though, there are a few things I like about Christmas.

Love it or hate it, egg nog is a part of the holiday season. Mixed with booze or straight up -- or made into pancakes, we hear -- it's an awesome seasonal treat for some and a disgusting idea altogether for others.

Still, every time I see egg nog in the fridge I experience a confused mass of feelings. My instinct is to reach for it and have a nice cool glass of this thick, satisfying treat that says "Christmas" to me more than most anything else. But now I also feel a sort of guilty repulsion.
