Blueberry, Honey & Goat Cheese Monkey Bread

My kids and I have very different tastes. I often make simple meals for them like this homemade rotisserie in the crock pot or honey BBQ chicken, so when I get the chance to make something for a book club or a party, I’m excited to try something new. My kids won’t eat this blueberry, honey and goat cheese monkey bread…. heck, they don’t even like blueberries!

It wasn’t until recently that I tried the combination of blueberries, goat cheese and honey and to say that combo is delicious is an understatement.

So maybe your kids are the sophisticated type and eat blueberries with goat cheese, but I know mine sure aren’t and that’s o.k. I’ll make this monkey bread for myself!

Blueberries + Goat Cheese + Honey Monkey Bread

This monkey bread is super simple. All you do is take two cans of biscuits, cut the pieces in fours and flatten them out. Fill the biscuit dough with a little spread of goat cheese, a few blueberries and a drizzle of honey. Fold the dough over, pinch it shut and add it to your bundt pan.

Monkey bread filled with delicious blueberries and goat cheese and baked in butter and honey!

Blueberry, Honey and Goat Cheese Monkey Bread

Ingredients
2 cans of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
8 oz. goat cheese
2 pints blueberries
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup honey + a little more for drizzling.

  1. Open the biscuit containers. Cut each biscuit into four pieces and flatten each piece.
  2. Spread a little goat cheese on each piece. Add a few blueberries (usually 3-4) on top. Drizzle with a tiny bit of honey before folding the dough into a ball.
  3. Fold the dough over to enclose the goat cheese and blueberries and pinch shut and add the dough balls to a greased bundt pan.
  4. When you are half way done, melt the butter and mix with 1/2 cup honey. Pour half of the butter/honey mixture over the finished biscuit dough in the bundt pan.
  5. Continue making the rest of the biscuits. When you are finished, pour the rest of the butter/honey mixture over the top.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes. If it is getting too crispy on top, you can put foil over it until it is finished.
  7. Let rest 10 minutes, then flip the pan over on a baking dish. Top with blueberries!

Go Rving with Kids!

Some of my best memories from my earlier years are family vacations. Our family had a travel trailer and we would go RVing around the Midwest. It felt like an adventure! We camped, fished, explored, sat around the campfire, and played card games (something as simple as the family playing card games is what I remember so vividly)! Even when the travel trailer was just sitting in our driveway at home, we wanted to sleep in it!

We have five kids in our family and two of my brothers were toddlers at the time, so I bet my parents felt like RVing was a different type of adventure! Now, as a parent to three kids, I can understand the apprehensions my parents might have had with buying a travel trailer and taking us on these adventures, but I’m sure glad they did. Now I realize how important it is to create those same memories for my children.

My aunt and uncle had a large motorhome that they traveled to all of the states (except Alaska) and visited every one of the sights, attractions and national parks across the country. I’ve been around the world, but there are so many places right here in the U.S. that I haven’t had the chance to see: the Grand Canyon, mountains, Mount Rushmore, or even Niagara Falls. I want my kids to be able to explore and appreciate every part of their country and not just read about it in textbooks. Hopefully one day we will be able to buy an RV and provide our kids with excitement, adventure and memories.

RVing brings families closer together and creates fond memories for kids to always look back on.

Greek Pasta Salad

I’m always looking for dishes to bring to potlucks and a cold pasta salad is a perfect make-ahead dish that is good for hot weather. One of my favorite salads is a classic Greek salad. Naturally, I would turn those flavors into different dishes just like I did with my Spinach and Artichoke Dip Chicken Enchildas and Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Soup because of my love for spinach and artichoke dip.

Here is a delicious Greek Pasta Salad (I see a Greek Potato salad in my future!) that I created for Litehouse Foods. Their new OPA dips are created with Greek yogurt. I love using Greek yogurt in place of sour cream and cheeses because it provides a creamy taste and texture with fewer calories and a lot of protein! By using Greek yogurt in these dips, Litehouse has created a dip with fewer calories but flavorful taste!
