This recipe has been one of our family favorites for years. But when I put the ingredients into the Living Cookbook, I discovered that it was over 1,000 calories per serving! With that knowledge, I made a few adjustments to the recipe and now we can feel good about enjoying this high-fiber, special-treat meal!
