Thanks for the congrats, this was a great contest. Have any of the winners received their Real Simple prizes yet? I just got my instructables shirt and it is awesome but I am anxious for the other stuff.
HOORAH! Congrats all winners! (Especially Treb!)

I told Christy (Canida) that I'd never heard of monkey bread before and gave me the weirdest look. Then she said, "you've been deprived as a child." I don't know. My food growing up was pretty awesome, but maybe I'll try it out.
Yeah, you've been deprived.... Btw... for some reason I was never notified of this string of comments... bug?
Heh... my mom's made it a few times... althought it was really different... It had bananas... and chocolate chips... I didn't really like it...
definitely do...my mom has made it all my life...i'm so lucky =]
