Thanksgiving Unsexy? I Beg to Differ

I just read an article that proclaimed Thanksgiving the least sexy holiday. The author points out lots of reasons, some travel-related, some relative-related and others having to do with food. Frankly, I totally disagree with her. Sure, traveling this time of year is a giant pain in the ass, and dealing with certain relations—well, I get that.

But food is as sexy as you make it. One of my first books, Can't Stand the Heat features a very long love scene in which food is the third character! How about we rethink that leftover turkey for two in sensual terms?

Mary tore off a small chunk of white meat and shut her eyes as she pushed it into her mouth. "Mm." She licked her fingers so sensuously that he nearly came apart at the seams as imagined that pink tongue darting over his erection.

I'm sure you get the picture. With the exception of having a cavity drilled, just about anything involving your mouth can be turned into a sexy scene.

In honor of our American Thanksgiving holiday this week, I would like to share the recipe for one of my favorite holiday treats. Monkey Bread is a family favorite and although it is quite sticky, it can be fun for a private party of two.

Monkey Bread

1 - 25 oz package Bridgeford or Rich's frozen rolls
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans
1 small package (non-instant) butterscotch pudding
1 stick butter - melted

Lightly grease bundt pan. Fill with frozen rolls. Mix all dry ingredients, sprinkle over rolls. Drizzled with melted butter. Cover with foil and place in 'cold' oven overnight. In the morning, bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Immediately turn onto buttered serving dish with rimmed edge. 

Yeah - you can't worry about calories with this one. Enjoy! And happy Thanksgiving.
