Cream Cheese Monkey Bread + Cake Talk

My friends Ben and Heather have been on the road off and on.  So they were making a pit stop as an over night guest at my house till there next adventure to NY.  I knew I probably wouldn't even see them since they were arriving at 2am, and their time clocks would be off coming in from London.  So I whipped up this fun recipe for their arrival.

Inside this cinnamon, sugary, monkey bread I have hidden some delicious cream cheese.  This bread is perfect in the morning since it has a short cut to making it quick and easy.  Don't feel guilty if you go back for another...

Cream Cheese Monkey Bread
2 pack of flakey biscuit dough
1 (8oz) cream cheese
cube 20 pieces of cream cheese 
take10 rounds of dough and 10 cream cheese cubes and place in the middle of dough
with non stick spray make sure a bunt pan is well sprayed
place the 10 round ball side by side in bunt pan 
take 3/4 butter and melt
then pour on top of dough and sprinkle with sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon
then repeat
10 more doughs with 10 cream cheese cubes and place in dough
then turn upside down to seal in the cream cheese
then pour butter on top of dough and sprinkle with sugar, brown sugar,and cinnamon

I woke up the next morning 2 pieces were missing with a sweet note.  Be safe Ben & Heather miss you come back soon! xoxo

Mozzarella Bites Perfect for a Football Treat + Cake Talk

Who is ready for some football?  Most of the time I am being dragged to some bar to watch the game and end up ordering fried Mozzarella sticks.

Click this to take you to the HOW TO VIDEO:)

Mozzarella Bites

crack one egg in a bowl

dip the cheese in egg then crumbs repeat
