I've been making this for several years now since I first found the recipe in the magazine.  Its quick and easy, but more importantly so delicious.  My family loves it.  Don't skip the orange zest, it gives it an extra bit of flavor that makes it special.  We like to drizzle a little maple syrup on it.
