I thought the recipe was rather bland. I think I will make it again using some cinnamon or nutmet.

I had this recipe a long time ago, except mine called for 1 cup whole milk and 1 cup heavy cream. I lost it, and was so bummed out. Then I came across this one, and happy days are here again! Thanks!
