Easy Recipe for Garlic Monkey Bread

This winter has been a little wonky, but cold nevertheless. Although we didn’t have a white Christmas, the snow is here and we’re planning on another long, cold winter! This means taking care of the home. Plowing the piles of snow from the driveway, shoveling the roof after big snow storms and clearing the walkways; so all entrances and exits of our home are usable. Clearing snow may seem like a tedious winter task, but it’s essential to keep your home, and family safe all winter long. Besides, you can have fun while doing it – just take a sledding break!
