The pudding mixed with the brown sugar and butter creates a rich caramel flavor.  The base that hold this monkey bread together is creamier and thicker than other breads made without the pudding.  You could mix it up a bit and use butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla.

This monkey bread was so good.  It reminded me of a garden vegetable pizza without the sauce.  You could dip this bread in marinara sauce if you'd like.  I dipped it in my cauliflower soup.  What a great snack too and a good way to get kids to eat their veggies.

I've never had Panera Bread's version of this soup so I'm not sure how it compares.  I know this was very good and hearty, the sharp cheddar that I used really complimented the bland creaminess of the cauliflower.

I don't ever recall a time in my life that I did not like liver and onions.  My earliest recollection of eating liver and onions was when I was about 10 years old.  My uncle Mike cooked it for me and I have a very vivid memory of watching him cook.  I'd almost rather have liver and onions over a good steak, almost!

Two tours to Iraq and both times my son returned home, this is the first thing he wanted me to cook for him.  Silly boy!  I used to make these little breakfast sandwiches for my kids all the time.  They are quick, tasty and can be consumed on the go.  All three of my children have continued the tradition of making these for their families.  The dipping sauce was added recently to my recipe, as was the term "slider".

I'm not a very big fan of ice cream, but I do enjoy pudding.  So instead of a brownie fudge sundae, I opted for pudding cups.

One of my favorite appetizers when watching a sporting event or just hanging out with friends is little sausages saturated in bbq sauce on a cracker with a slice of cheese.  These appetizers cover all the flavors of that favorite snack and the flaky crescent roll dough beats the heck out of a plain cracker any day.
