    Bri22's Note:

    I just watched Barefoot Contessa and she made a romantic breakfast for dinner for her husband. I have posted the other things she made which are Barefoot Contessa's Hash Browns - Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa's Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, and Barefoot Contessa's Raspberry Champagne. She also made sausage links which I'm sure everyone knows how to cook in a pan ;>

      I made it exactly as written, using 1/2 and 1/2. Ina Garten never lets me down. The honey and orange zest gave it a great flavor, but next time I will substitute brown sugar and cinnamon for a more traditional flavor. You cannot go wrong with using challah...WOW!!!

      This recipe is excellent. I skipped the salt, honey and used non-fat milk and it turned out great. I also used a brioche with raisins and cinnamon which made it extra good.
