Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I don't make it often because when I do...I could eat the entire thing, warm from the oven. You made it look so pretty with the holly! Hope you win!

I gained 5 pounds reading your post! It looks scrumptious. I have never had Monkey bread. It is on my "to do" list but I would probably eat half, I am certain.
Sue
P.S. I have always wondered why it is called monkey break.

That really looks good. I have a friend that always wants her treat to be monkey bread. I tried the recipe Ree did in muffin tins and they worked out great.

I also went through your Christmas dining room post! BJ, I love (with a capital "L") your fabulous red and white dining room! It's gorgeous!!! Your Christmas mantel is sooo beautiful...and I love the berry wreath that you hung up above! My friend, this room belongs in a magazine...it's that gorgeous!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Christmas home with us...it's such a treat, Darlin'!!! I hope that my note finds you and the Mr. doing well!

Warmest wishes and Christmas blessings to you and your family!

Your bread looks so good! Love the holly! Hope you win! I have her book on my wish list for Christmas!

Natasha said...

I have never heard of monkey bread but it looks amazing! I am so going to have to try that. Your blog looks gorgeous BJ. You are certainly in the Christmas spirit!

Have a great weekend and best wishes, Natasha.

Okay, I can see the canned biscuits and the effects of the the brown sugar and butter...but I'm looking very, VERY closely....and it looks to me like you must have put the monkeys in the food processor on 'coarse chop'.....

If I were to puree my monkeys, would the taste be compromised? Wouldn't want to compromise the taste because Monkeybread looks like it tastes heavenly!

Coloradolady said...

This looks wonderful!! Happy Holidays.

Theresa said...

Oh BJ, If I lived near you... I would set an alarm so I could show up at every meal:) Monkey bread looks delish! Have a blessed day!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

BJ!!! That looks fabulous! Good luck on winning! (I'm on my way over to have bite or two!) Hugs, Coralie

Justine said...

Oh Lordy,that looks sooooooooooo yummy. And I love that most of Ree's recipes are really easy to put together. I told Jimmy I'd love to have this cookbook and he told me, "Why would I buy you that when you don't use the ones you have?" He just doesn't get it :o (
But anyway, your breakfast looked divine and I hope it tasted that way too!

Justine :o )

Rhonda @ Shellbelle's Tiki Hut said...

I haven't made Monkey Bread since my kids were young and that was almost forty-years ago! I think it may be just the year to indulge in this goodness again, thanks for reminding me about this recipe!

Hugs,
Chris
