Monkey Bread has been around forever. My first experience with monkey bread was when my friend, Edith, made it for me many, many years ago when we were having a playdate with our kids.

Well, now the kids are grown and going on playdates with their own kids. And Monkey Bread is still with us and even making something of a comeback. Why? My guess would be that Pillsbury refrigerator biscuits have been on sale lately, and in this economy, products on sale look very attractive! The fact is that it is also one of the simplest coffee cakes to make when time is of the essence.

There’s nothing like trying to save both time and money, now is there? A sale on anything will determine my shopping list. I shop whatever is on sale. Always have and always will. That is not to say I don’t buy anything unless it is on sale, but it really doesn’t help when planning my weekly menu. If my husband and I are in the mood for something, like steak or shrimp, we just buy it. Usually, I am faithful to the supermarkets’ weekly flyers. There are three stores that I check for sales and will shop at the one with the best prices for the items I need that week. For example, toilet paper and paper towels are pricey and we are always in need of both. If one of the supermarkets is having a sale on either one of these items, and I have a coupon for that particular item, then that will determine which store gets my business that week. It drives me crazy to pay full price for something if I don’t have to. As the saying goes, “penny wise, pound foolish”, really is true. You’re really not gonna save any money if you need to drive an extra 15 miles to find that sale. With the rising gas prices today, some sales are just not worth the trip.

Oh yes, now back to that Monkey Bread…..some monkey bread recipes call for icing. I never make it that way, because of personal taste. Monkey bread can be prepared anyway you like it, with nuts or without, with icing or without; it’s just one of those breads that can be enjoyed with or without the frills!
