No Sugar but Spice - A tasty Way to Treat Yourself

We don't have dessert very often in our house, well at least what might be considered a 'traditional' dessert.  We still like to have something yummy after dinner, though, and last night was no exception.  Lorelei had hoped that we had cookies, but she was very happy with the alternative that I brewed up for her.

Warm and Frothy Spiced Milk
(per person)
3/4 cup Milk
1/4 tsp freshly grated Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Cinnamon

Slowly warm your milk and spices over medium heat, stirring frequently with a whisk.  When the milk starts to steam, give it a good beating then pour it into a coffee cup and serve.

Mom's Tip
I keep whole nutmeg in my pantry.  Freshly grated, it's warm and spicy notes are far superior to that which you will find in a jar.  I use it in sweet and savory applications, most notably in my Bolognese sauce.
