Blueberry Maple Biscuit Bake {aka Monkey Bread} & GIVEAWAY

Is anyone else fah-REAKING out that it is already November 19th?! The holidays are HERE people! I’m sorry to shout, but like I said, freaking out over here!! Am I ready for Thanksgiving? No. Am I ready for Christmas? HELLLOOO-NO. Am I the girl who lives not any where near civilization and shopping? Yes. Yes I am.

Wow. Thank goodness for online shopping and free shipping deals. Sorry to rant. I feel better now. *breath in; breath out*

One thing I do not have to stress about is breakfast during the holidays. With things like this Blueberry Biscuit Bake, I can throw it together with minimal effort and have it ready for everyone to feast upon so I can do more important things…like search for Black Friday Deals. Or wrap presents…b/c of course that will be done at the very.last.minute. Because that’s how I roll. 

But don’t these look scrum-dily-umptious?! That means good, in case you’re wondering. I make up words sometimes too.
This is similar to monkey bread…but it’s not made in a bundt pan (but you could, just double the recipe), and it’s made with blueberry biscuits! Have you seen them? Grands Biscuits makes them (there are probably other brands too, but that’s the one sold around here). I knew I wanted to make something with these new found treasures, but I didn’t want to make a traditional monkey bread…I wanted less cinnamon/brown sugar and more blueberry. And a little maple syrup thrown in for good measure. AND, a glaze of course. Can’t have blueberry biscuits without a glaze (are you familiar with BoBerry Biscuits? Bojangles, baby. That’s where it’s at. It’s a Southern thing.)

  1. Probably pecan pie, because it's pretty much just a once a year thing and I love it so much. But my mom's stuffing deserves honorable mention. I am SOOOO sad that I'm not spending Thanksgiving with her because that means I don't get any!

  2. Stuffing is definitely my favorite. I always have it out of a bag or box until the holidays roll around and I take the time and effort to make it fresh- delicious!
