We're Italian but my mom loves to cook anything and everything, which means at Christmas we rarely get any of that.

I have no idea, lol. It's basically biscuit dough rolled in cinnamon sugar and baked with nuts and it is SO GOOD. It's just like a huge cinnamon roll that you can pull apart and eat.

Monkey Bread... it's so good

I eat it sans nuts, though.

It really ought to have bananas in it, since it's called monkey bread.

I thought it was baked in the shape of a monkey head when I read the name.

We should move this to It's Official and talk about monkey brains, which are of course in monkey heads

I had something once at a Mexican restaurant that was pastry with cinnamon, bananas, and vanilla ice cream.

Marshall Field's Frango Mints. I usually have them at the holidays because we get them as gifts from clients.

Ah, but then it would be called banana bread!! Which is very similiar if not the same thing? I have no clue. I'm no baker! Both are excellent though.

My Christmas favorites are candy kiss cookies and my Mom makes a homemade fudge pie for the Christmas Day meal. MMMM, cant wait, less than two weeks!


This time of year sucks if you are trying to lose a few! Oh well, I guess that is what the new year is for!
