PB&J Skillet Monkey Bread

Q: What is black and heavy and has a ton of WONDERFUL uses???

A: a cast iron skillet, of course!

One of the many kitchen tools that I have thought about for quite some time, yet I have put off buying.  I have also passed up some very good looking recipes because I didn’t have one.  But lo and behold, I finally took a leap and bought one!  Based on the fact that I’ve used it three times and I’ve had it for 10 days I would say that it was a great purchase so far!

This monkey bread came from a cookbook that I had never seen before.  It’s called The Picky Palate by Jenny Flake and it’s written for the picky eaters in your family.  Seriously just flipping through it I found at least a dozen recipes that sounded awesome just based on the titles alone.  This one stuck out because of the word skillet <I had just bought one!> and because of pb&j <our all time favorite combo!>.  Needless to say, it was delicious straight from the oven and just as delicious straight from the fridge later.  Seriously, if you love pb&j this is a must try!
