    Please publish a cookbook & one for desserts alone. I see all your recipes on my phone & I can’t save them all (e.g. all your poke cake rwcipes-look just awesome & I have made a couple variations on my own but you have combos I haven’t thought of but my phone can’t save them all & I don’t have my phone in the kitchen with me when I cook)…I still love print cookbooks.
