Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Monkey Bread. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. One wine you could try is NV Solera Cream Sherry. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 17 dollars.

NV Solera Cream Sherry

The Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.

Instructions

Combine scalded milk, mashed potatoes, shortening, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl and let stand until lukewarm. Add one package of yeast (softened in 1/2 cup lukewarm water). Add two well-beaten eggs and 1 1/2 cups flour. Beat well. Add about four more cups of sifted flour to make stiff dough. Put in a large greased bowl and turn so that all of the dough is greased. Let rise at least two hours. About 1 1/2 hours before serving, punch down and roll out dough. Cut into walnut-sized squares and dip each into melted butter, then pile in fluted tube pan. Pour remaining butter over top. Let rise (about one hour) then bake 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees F (If crispier bread desired, cook at 400 degrees F) Serve hot.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you're worried about cholesterol and heart disease, you may have heard you should limit your egg consumption to one egg per day or eat only egg whites. However, new research suggests you might go ahead and eat your whole eggs. It turns out egg yolk contains valuable nutrients (the cartenoids that make it yellow are great for eye health, folic acid is great for brain health, and it has vitamins A, E, D, and K) and dietary cholesterol seems to have little influence on blood cholesterol levels.

  • Believe it or not, some sources say you can substitute avocado puree for butter when making brownies. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Store potatoes and sweet potatoes in a cool, dark place, and never put them in the refrigerator. At cold temperatures, the starch in potatoes is turned into sugar, affecting their flavor. For more information about selecting and storing potatoes, check out this lesson about potatoes in the academy.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Choose free range or organic eggs whenever possible! Even though they are more expensive, eggs are generally cheap to begin with, and eggs from cage-free chickens are worth the extra cost.

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
