You may have noticed I’ve been a little MIA recently. Believe me, sooner or later I will update the entire world about the crazy exciting things going on in my life, but now is not the time. Now is the time to get back into the kitchen—which I’ve been doing a ton these last few days to get ready for the holiday season.

As we all know, Christmas is right around the corner. There are many exciting things that go on during the season—but for the most part people young and old are most excited about Christmas morning.

There’s the tree, the lights, the presents, the family, the festivities and for some, the breakfast.

I don’t know what your family traditions are or what you’re planning to make, but let me suggest adding Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread to the Christmas table in 2014.

Anyone who has had monkey bread knows eating it is a divine experience, but imagine adding frosting and extra cinnamon to the mix—obviously it’s going to take it up a notch. Not to mention, it’s easy as pie—literally.

Don’t buy premade cinnamon rolls at the grocery store or make frozen waffles this year. Take just a little extra time to create a breakfast your family won’t soon forget—and trust me—you won’t either.
