Jacqueline's Egg Nog Muffins

Allen and Jacqueline Bent, and their four children - Jennafer, Jonathan, Alanna and Adrian - call Lawrencetown Nova Scotia home. The couple bought the family farm from Allan’s Dad in 1994. They’ve made many upgrades to the property since then, while still maintaining the original house and barn built nearly 100 years ago. A lot has changed since the farm was first built, but like so many homes in Nova Scotia, the kitchen is the source of many wonderful family memories. "You'll want to make these egg nog muffins part of your family's holiday tradition."
