Monkey Bread with the family... how fitting

This weekend my mom visited for the first time at our new house... a great excuse to cook all weekend. I didn't get the camera out for all the food, but I remembered to take a picture of the monkey bread this morning.
One of my favorite breakfast recipes is Monkey Bread. It makes a bunch so I only make it when we have guests over.
Monkey Bread:
  • 4 cans of small biscuits cut in 4 pieces each
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together so all pieces of biscuit are covered with the mixture. Spoon the pieces into a greased fluted pan. I love my stoneware fluted pan ($29)

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

In a sauce pan over the stove combine the ingredients above and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture over the biscuits in the pan. (Add pecans to the top - you can add them whole or chopped)

Bake in the oven 40-50 minutes.

Here's the empty pan... Kolin loved doing dishes all weekend.

Here's a list of the other meals we had:

  • Thursday Dinner - 30 minute chicken in pampered chef deep covered baker, risotto, broccoli, salad and french baguette. Brownies too!
  • Friday Lunch - Lemon Chicken Risotto soup (made with the leftovers)
  • Friday Dinner - Homemade Pizza with garlic and herb crust. 1- Sausage and Pepperoni and 2- Sausage, Chicken and Spinach
  • Saturday Breakfast - Cinnamon Banana Pancakes, Bacon and Fruit
  • Saturday Dessert - Homemade M&M cookie and ice cream sandwiches
  • Sunday Breakfast - Monkey Bread
  • Sunday Lunch - Cookout with brats, pork chops, corn on the cob, mac 'n cheese and salad

I think everyone had a great weekend... and a few extra pounds :)
