"The recipe was so awesome and so delicious. The 1st time I made it I followed the recipe. The 2nd time I made it I didn't put in raisins and instead of milk I used egg nog. I will definitely be making the bread more often."

"I cannot make a review yet, but I have a question. Would the cinnamon chips possibly be a good addition? My review will bring the stats down but I have not tried the recipe yet."
