Does your family have a favorite gathering food? You know, that special something that is only made when the family gets together. A food that by having it without family by your side just isn't as special or somehow doesn't taste the same? Well, this is a special dedicated post to just that type of special food.
What I have come to realize over the years, is that its not the sugary sweetness or the smell that makes it so dive-through-the-door, push-your-brother-out-of-the-way kind of special. It is the attention and great love that goes into making Monkey Bread and the memories made of family gatherings that make it special. Don't get me wrong, this stuff is good, but there is certainly more to it than just taste here. There are so many good memories of being the first to grab a hot, gooey piece or being the one to sneak in that last bite! There have been burned fingers, but luckily no broken bones or black eyes (yet)!
