oh my, who would have believed that it was gonna be such a great hit?? I must confess that I made it more for the colors than anything else (my daughter's party, we needed something with pastel colors, and it complimented the pastel-colored little paper cups we had chosen...). So I used pink, yellow and pale blue striped marshmallows. Then I went on making mistakes: I forgot to buy the required Digestives, and we only had amaretti (of all things!!! I didn't even remember why we had these). Then I got confused and threw the whole cup of coconut into the mix, instead of saving it to powder the sausage of dough! so I had to add more milk. I simply thought I was headed for disaster. Well, I got rave reviews, people asking for the recipe all over the place, and many kept repeating This is insanely addictive!!! I can't wait to do it right:-)

it's really ready in breeze and it's quite good. I also experienced the problem of the stickyness as mentioned by others, but it didn't bother me so much. I just washed my hands often, is all: I prefer that to greaseing my hands. My decoration was pink and lilac and white tiny hearts, as it was my daughter's party.

Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread
Had it for a week night, and it was quick and easy enough: our meal revolved around it, with some meat and cheese, so everyone was free to decide what to accompany it with. I prepared yhe dough with my bread machine, and I set the timer so to have it ready exactly when I was opening my door, coming from work. That means I only had to put the whole thing together, just whisking a couple of eggs and herbs, quick enough. I followed the recipe to a T, as I usually do the first time, just to be fair; I did wonder about oregano, as parsley didn't give any kick to it according to me. I probably increased the amount of parmesan, but I'm glad I did it, it was not overpowering at all. Next time I'm going to let it rise more, and also to use olive oil instead of butter, which only adds graesiness and can be omitted in my opinion. All in all, will do it again, the kids thought it was a kind of quiche with a hole in the middle...
