    have you ever tried making cream soda with real vanilla extract? it's a pretty neat lesson about how much sugar is in soda to show your kids or grandkids.

    nope, but i've made homemade eggnog with it. my wife was horrified because of the raw eggs. the cup of sugar flew under the radar.
    i like a good cream soda myself, i'll give it a whirl.

    man shogun you hating on the eggnog...what are you? just an old fuck?

    cream soda..i have never thought of making it....i make my own vanilla as well..why buy that crappy stuff when you can make a bottle that will last forever...you just have to add vodka as you use it...

    i buy local eggs when i can...i use a lot of recipes that call for raw or nearly raw eggs...
