Just the Facts, Ma’am
My name is Isabella Norse and I write humorous romances featuring strong women, sexy men – and cats! You can find out more about my books by clicking on the Books link at the top of the page.
I am giving away this beautiful spring-themed plaque and an autographed copy of my fantasy romance, Assassin’s Heart.
How to Enter
Entry is simple. Just comment on this post and tell me your favorite spring flower. (For the record, mine is the dogwood blossom.)
Monkey Bread is a holiday tradition at our house. Doesn’t it look yummy?
1 package (3 ½ ounces) cook and serve butterscotch pudding mix
¾ cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
½ cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
½ cup butter or margarine, melted
3 tubes (10 ounces each) refrigerated biscuits
Combine the pudding mix, sugar, cinnamon, and pecans (if desired) in a plastic bowl with a tight-fitting lid. Pour the melted butter into a shallow bowl. Cut the biscuits into quarters. Dip several pieces into the butter, then place in the bowl; cover and shake. Place the coated pieces in a greased 10-inch fluted tube pan. Continue until all of the biscuit pieces are coated. Bake at 350o for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan for 30 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Yield: 10-12 servings.
1. I always have to use two batches of the pudding/sugar/cinnamon mixture to coat all of the biscuit pieces.
2. You MUST grease or spray the pan with cooking spray – even if using a non-stick pan. Failure to do so will result in having to chisel the monkey bread out of the pan. Trust me on this one.
That’s All, Folks!
That’s all from me! Remember, in order to be eligible to win the grand prize, you must enter each individual giveaway. To make it easier, the full list of participating authors is below. Keep hopping and good luck! I will announce the winner on April 18th.
