    AniSarit's Note:

    From Martha Stewart. That woman sure knows how to make a delicious french toast! I have changed her recipe to omit some unneeded calories and fat. It is the best french toast our family has ever had, and our guests all agreed! I make this on a Sunday morning if we still have extra challah left over.

      I've made this before with day-old homemade challah (recipe from Baking with Julia). It's fabulous! I skip the liquor and the lemon when I make it. Thanks for posting, AniSarit--I was just about to do so myself, but you've saved me the trouble!
