If you have never tried Monkey Bread, you are soooo missing out!!

I LOVE monkey Bread!! Years ago I was at a Tupperware party and the consultant made what she called Monkey Bread in a microwave cooker. The smell as it cooked was intoxicating and mouth-watering. Once I tasted it I was hooked!!  Now I am not a big fan of using the microwave for anything more than reheating or popcorn so I set out to make mine in the oven.

I took a bundt cake pan and sprayed it with cooking spray, I prefer the buttered flavor.  Simply take out a can of biscuits, any biscuits work so do not let anyone tell you it have to be brand x.,  place in a ring around the bundt pan with each piece touching the other.  I melt 4 tbs  of unsalted, real butter and pour over the ring of dough.  Now I keep a separate container of a cinnamon/sugar mix for easier access.  Spread a generous layer of this mixture over the buttered dough.   Simply bake according to the biscuit directions. ( I check mine frequently because as we know different ovens cook differently). You will smell the amazing aroma wafting through your house and the hubby and kids will be asking, “Is it done yet?”

When it’s done baking, cover in glaze.  you can serve hot or let sit.  I leave mine in the bundt pan and simply tear off pieces.



4 tbs melted butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbs hot water


Whisk vigorously.




Some other twists on this goodie:


Add raisins, nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit etc for a great holiday or party treat!

use different flavor glazes or icing such as lemon, blueberry etc

Add chocolate chips and a chocolate glaze!!!

After adding the butter and cinnamon sugar,  add a layer of caramel and bananas for a Bananas foster style dessert.

The possibilities are endless!!!

DotMine Day Planners!!

A couple of years ago I was introduced to DotMine Planners. I absolutely loved mine and it went everywhere with me. Not only was it functional but it was fabulously fashionable. I could keep track of all of my appointments and functions as well as anything that came up with my kids or grandson.

I was also a college student then and my DotMine planner was a life saver when keeping track of assignments and exams. It’s hard enough being a student again in your forties so a little help goes a long way!  I always received compliments on my planner because it was just so beautiful. You will not find utilitarian designs at DotMine, only beautiful artwork and design.

DotMine Offers:

  • Life Time Mine Planners
  • Family Time Mine Planners
  • Time Mine Planners

No matter which one you choose you will love it and it will keep you on track and organized. I was tired of the messy notes plastered all over my fridge that made it impossible to stay on track. I then tried large wall calendars but again they looked messy and didn’t have the options I needed. When Dot Mine came along, it was just perfect for my needs and easy to carry with me in my purse or school bag and was readily accessible.

You can choose from amazing designs and find the perfect DotMine planner for you. Make sure you head over and browse through their selection and find the perfect DotMine Planner for you!  Look for DotMIne on Facebook Twitter and on Pinterest.
