Recipe Inspiration: Marsha M (old family friend)

***NOTE: Marsha used to make us monkey bread ALOT. She lived with us for a little while and she made it then...she also made it a couple times when we were camping...I believe...or maybe girls camp? This is not HER recipe but the closest I could find to what I remember. I've done this in a dutch over while camping's a little more finicky when you aren't doing it in the oven...but it's worth it if you can make it for breakfast while camping out. YUMMO!

***STORY: This is one of Melanie's favorite recipes. She requests it often. At one time, she was requesting it at almost every time she stayed the weekend. She would get everything out and put it all on the counter. She knew what all the ingredients were. Then she'd wash her hands and come get me and tell me she was ready for me to help her make it. We always did the assembly line thing. I cut the biscuits up and she'd put the cinnamon on them and put them in the pan. GOOD MEMORIES!
