  1. Is there a reason you don’t give desert ideas in your 365 day meal plan? Just curious. I want to make more desserts but forget to add them into the meal time most times. This looks so yummy.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! It’s mostly that people’s tastes vary so much when it comes to desserts. It took years to put 365 together, and when I started polling about what kind of desserts people would like to have included, I got so many different opinions that it became clear I would need months to add desserts.

  2. Hello! I was thrilled to find this recipe here…one of my favorites! Do you by chance have the single serve version of this recipe? It had been on Facebook and I pinned it but now it’s no longer available. I’ve been trying to track it down without success. Any help? Thank you!

  3. This was fantastic! I made homemade cinnamon rolls for Christmas and those on plan at this instead. It was so good we couldn’t stop eating it (topped with butter) and weren’t even tempted by the cinnamon rolls! This is extremely good!

  4. Hello there! I always made this cake and it’s perfect. For some reason I can’t open Rhonda’s website to get the single serving version. Do you have it? Thanks
