Monkey Bread

Everyone here in the Young household will agree that Monkey Bread is definitely listed in the “best baked creation ever” category. Made as a special treat, mostly around the holidays, a batch of this gooey goodness is sure to elicit squeals of delight from all.

And, with the directions right on the package of Pillsbury biscuits, there’s no searching for the recipe. Making Monkey Bread is a fun and easy way to get the kiddos in the kitchen.


The only problem? You can’t leave the Monkey bread to cool on the counter unattended without expecting to return to find it devoured!

Spreading Christmas Cheer

All week the kids and I have been baking up a storm. Cookies, cupcakes and candy have been tempting us with their yummy goodness.

Today we’ve delivered some of these sweet treats, but tomorrow morning will find us playing a bit of ding dong ditch on unsuspecting (and often grumpy) neighbors!

Spreading Christmas cheer is so much fun!

Eggland’s Best Holiday Baking Party

On Friday some of my best friends and I spent the entire afternoon doing one of our favorite things – baking! Eggland’s Best sponsored this fabulous baking party and we even had door prizes! We made Quiche, Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies and homemade ice cream, all with Eggland’s Best eggs. (See recipes below.)

QUICHE

VANILLA ICE CREAM

Beat 2 Eggland’s Best eggs in a large bowl until thick and lemon-colored (about 5 minutes). Add 1 cup sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Stir in 2 3/4 cup half & half, 1 tablespoon vanilla and 1 cup whipping cream and pour in to ice cream canister. Follow manufacturer’s directions. Makes 2 quarts.
