pepperoni pizza monkey bread

I think that Pinterest is quickly taking over my obsession with Facebook.  Don’t get me wrong, I still care that your youngest just lost a tooth but currently I care more about what outfit you find cute, what mirror you want for your living room, or what dessert you want to eat. I can spend hours perusing images of food, clothes, puppies, and bathroom faucets…seriously…I love this site.  I have a board (you can “follow”me by clicking the link to the right) dedicated solely to food I need to cook and this pepperoni pizza monkey bread has been at the top of the board since the first day I logged on to Pinterest.

FINALLY this weekend I had the opportunity to do so.  Not only did it snow (my ultimate trigger for cooking indulgent food), but we also had a Sunday filled completely with football.  There was no doubt…the monkey bread would be made.  And let me tell you, unlike the Ravens, this recipe did not disappoint.

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread (adapted from Confessions of a Foodie Bride)

what you need:

32 oz pizza dough (2 pizza’s worth)

8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese

1 package turkey pepperoni

5 tablespoons butter

3 garlic cloves, sliced

shredded parmesan cheese

what to do:

preheat oven to 400

take the pizza dough and cut or break into 48 equal parts (I just cut with my knife, it doesn’t need to be exact)

take the mozzarella and cut into 48 equal pieces as well

melt butter and garlic in a small saucepan and saute until the garlic is lightly golden brown. Remove and let cool slightly.

take each piece of pizza dough, spread it apart with your fingers, put a piece of pepperoni on top of dough, add a piece of mozzarella and then press the dough together to seal completely and make a “dough ball”

Repeat with all 48 pieces of dough

brush inside of a bundt pan with the butter.  Then brush each dough ball completely with butter (I used a pastry brush).  Place the dough balls into the bundt pan (it will fill about 1/2 of the pan)  If there is any remaining butter, brush the top of the rolls to use it all up.

cover the pan and let it rise for 30 minutes.

When ready, cook for 30-35 minutes (the top should be significantly browned)  Remove, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and let cool for at least 10 minutes.

serve with marinara sauce and enjoy!

    The Wahl Pro 5 Star Bump-Free Beard Shaver (#8061) is an angled shaver, designed
    to glide smoothly over the face and around sensitive
    areas easily to remove unwanted hair from even the most hard to reach areas.
    This makes many men consider this shaver then as their prospective
    next electric razor the next time they buy a shaver. The retina in the eye can be most
    easily burned by heat build-up, when looking directly at the sun,
    because the macula or center part of the retina has no capillary circulation to
    efficiently remove excess heat.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    One of the main misconceptions about glass is that it
    is rather dull with practically no privacy. With all the new
    advances in technology- that is simply just not the case anymore.

    Over the years, glass manufacturers have come up with various types of glass like double glazed windows and
    patterned glass. You can use glass doors for your bathroom, patio and other places at your
    house to give your home an ultramodern or elegant look and feel.

    So you do not have to worry about the glass being dull or plain. Purchasing glass that has etched designs of nature like flowers and trees or any other categories based on your personal taste
    is possible nowadays. So finding the right kind of glass to blend with other furnishings in a particular room is indeed possible.
    There is no shortage of choices in terms of glass design. 

    Another benefit of glass is in terms of insulation. Glass is not a good conductor of heat.
    During our hot summer season, with all the advances in energy efficiency
    with glass, glass will not absorb heat, making the room hotter.
    During a winter or autumn period, glass will not cause much heat loss. 

    So you and your family might enjoy a more cooling effect during summer and a
    warmer effect during winter or autumn. You also save money in terms of utility bills.
    Since there is less heat loss, you can turn down the heating system to a lower temperature, which
    results in less energy consumption. During summer, there would not be any
    necessity to lower the temperature. 

    Another benefit of using glass doors and windows is
    that it just makes your home brighter and more cheerful feeling.

    With our famous sunny days, there might be no necessity to switch on lights to light up a
    particular place since there is sufficient natural light.

    Network marketing Income — July 21, 2014 at 4:37 pm

    LinkedIn has a great feature that connects with your
    existing email accounts and allows you to invite anyone you have interacted with to your network.
    This means that you might reach people you interacted with once or twice, or people that you haven’t spoken with in a
    while. This is a powerful tool, but are you using it effectively in your marketing?

    LinkedIn as a Data Collector
    Look at all the ways you can collect data from people. The easiest metric to track for most is their email addresses, so ask people
    and promote their use. Create mailers or offer contests via email registration.
    Remember, each email you collect is another potential LinkedIn profile waiting to be connected to.
    Also, you might convince someone to join LinkedIn when they receive an invite from you, which means more customers to interact with.

    Easy Ways to Connect on LinkedIn
    So, what are some easy ways to connect with users and get them to want to network with you?

    Many companies have started suing LinkedIn as a corporate blog to promote brand awareness.
    These blogs might not even have anything to do with the products being sold, but they might tie in with corporate culture or offer up some helpful knowledge
    or technique. This is called generating substance, and if you want people to see a value in your postings, you need to provide that substance, otherwise they simply
    won’t care.
    The nice thing about this is you don’t have to be a multi-faceted business guru to provide content.

    Maybe you promote an interesting link of the day, or maybe you repost a news
    story about something company-related (please
    give credit if you do this.). It could even be a humorous blurb or story, or
    even a business-appropriate joke to keep your network’s attention. The only constant is that the postings stay constant.
    If you start it, then maintain it to help build that
    brand awareness. Remember, people won’t actively look for you if they
    don’t know you exist.
    One great way that some companies have started building a loyalty network is through promoting their employees.
    Some companies will offer a spotlight on their employees, showing off
    the projects they have done or discussing their
    high points. This not only helps to ensure your employees feel valued, but it also helps to paint your
    company as more human, which is something you want
    when trying to get people to connect with you.
    Pitfalls and Things to Avoid With LinkedIn
    Most of what has been discussed here has been the positives of using LinkedIn for your promotions, but
    there are some pitfalls you may want to avoid. Again, not all
    marketing works for all niches and some can be turned
    off more easily than others.
    For starters, when advertising with a graphic, consider the
    context that your audience will view it in. LinkedIn is
    business to business networking. Is your picture one that would be considered safe for a business networking platform?

    Yes, attractive, nearly-naked people tend to get clicks, but are
    those the kind of ads people at major corporations are going to be more than likely be turned off due to lack
    of professionalism? Consider your content in your pictures before posting
    and make sure your graphics are a good match to your audience and marketing message.

    Second, watch your language. While on the surface, this could be taken as do not swear, on a deeper level,
    you have to consider what a company will filter for and what they will allow.
    Some words tend to trigger web filters pretty easily, so be careful about your verbiage.
    Also, look at the message your words send. Are you trying to
    be edgy, dynamic, endearing? Do your words properly convey the message you want people to see?
    Sometimes people get so wrapped up in sending out a strong message that they fail
    to consider if it is the right one.
    Third, don’t verbally tie yourself to a
    region or company if you can help it. While
    you may want to highlight a company on a landing page or
    maybe you are geared towards a certain region of the world, you don’t want to
    inadvertently exclude potential customers because they think
    your ads don’t immediately apply to them. Remember, you can focus your ads in terms of companies and locations ahead of time,
    so listing out that info in the actual ad might prove redundant.

    Fourth, don’t slack on your content. It can be easy to start with a big push,
    but the number one thing that kills an audience’s interest is inconsistency.
    Don’t slouch on your posts. Make sure you dedicate a
    certain period of time each day to providing some form of content.
    If you can’t or think you might have problems with this, hire someone to do
    it for you or spend a day or two generating multiple posts so
    that you can just plug and play. However you do it,
    just be sure to keep doing it. You are setting an expectation of service as accompany
    when you post, and to do so inconsistently will
    send a bad message abour what your company considers professional.

    Fifth, be careful on rebranding. Some smaller companies take the philosophy
    of experimentation a bit too far and keep trying to reinvent themselves every month or quarter,
    but the truth of it is that many companies form bonds over the long term with clients, and just because you announce
    a name change or a new logo, that doesn’t mean that
    your clientele is paying attention. To build your brand, you need consistency,
    so stick to a logo or name and try to avoid being so edgy that you
    can’t make up your mind about your name. Remember, you’re a business, not a rock star.

    LinkedIn Final Thoughts
    LinkedIn is a wonderful tool for reaching people in the business world.
